Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel. Thanks zvikar. Clear amber. Weak aroma with malt, a bit of caramel, some oxidation and something weird. Sweetish flavor with a bit of malt and caramel, honey-ish oxidation notes and a drier finish with faint bitterness. Rather light-bodied.

Bottle. Medium amber with a light golden head. Aroma is lightly toasty caramel. Flavour is the same, with a metallic bitterness in the finish that I didn’t dig.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Poured clear brighter orange with light swirly yeastage and a tall cap of creamy off-white head. The aroma picked up sweet breads and pils-type malts accented by light green fruits and some pine resin.. quite nice. The flavor had sweet, lightly-toasted caramel with lovely pine accents.. light fruits tail off the sides, leaving a sweet, rewarding feel through the finish. Light-medium bodied and predominantly sweet on the palate with great balance. Well done!

Full malty and hoppy. The best of both worlds. Very well balanced and incredibly smooth. I agree that this is Lakefront’s best.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle - Bitter roasted malts. Clear amber with a thin head. Very malt forward, with enough bitterness to cut the cloying sweetness. Bit of spice and hops in the finish. Not my style, but I can appreciate this for what it is.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle, Monk’s Café Wallingatan, Stockholm) Amber colour with huge, off-white head leaving traces of lacing. Malty, clean nose with notes of bread and caramel. Malty taste with bread, wort, hints of caramel and a touch of orange peel and dried fruit. Medium body with soft mouthfeel. Medium spicy bitterness. Balanced sweetness. Not too exciting, but a well balanced and tasty vienna.
