3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Copperish color, not much head. Smells of slight funk and big malt. Medium body... pretty big malt, not a whole lot else. It’s beer.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours clear, coppery amber with a fairly thick and frothy eggshell head. Crisp aroma is typically malty and a little fruity. Flavor features malt and pomme tomes, nothing special but still drinkable. Mouthfeel is average in the body and fizz departments. A typical but enjoyable lager.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 ounce bottle into lager glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy/cloudy deep amber/copper color with a 1 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of brown sugar, brown bread, toasted biscuit, light nuttiness, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready malt and moderate earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of brown sugar, brown bread, toasted biscuit, light nuttiness, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of brown sugar, brown bread, toasted biscuit, light nuttiness, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Good balance, complexity, and robustness of dark/bready malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and no cloying flavors after the finish. Fairly clean on lager flavors with some light estery off flavor notes present. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth and lightly creamy/bready moutthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a solid vienna lager. All around good robustness and balance of dark/bready malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. No idea on age of this bottle; but some definite signs of age are there, with some off flavors from the yeast as well. Might be better when it’s fresh. A fairly enjoyable offering as it was.

solid for the style, average overall. Decent toasted malt character, especially on the finish. Light color, body and hops. Decent.

170715. I picked up this bottle from Queens Plaza Beer and Wine. The label art catches the eye and the bottle sets itself apart from others on the shelf. I can easily envision myself sitting in that hammock drinking bottle after bottle of this beer.
Deep copper almost red colour with a thin soft cushion of foam. The aroma is all toffee and caramel and is really quite sweet. The flavour is similar to the aroma with a big malt finish. While the beer is full bodied it is not overly chewy and the label is certainly right when it says that this beer will leave you wanting more.

Kinda stinky marzen malt aroma, nutty, improves as it warms/airs. Clear, tawny, dilute tea colored. OK label. Straw flavor, a little molasses /burnt sugar, twangy. Low bittering. Medium body, slippery mouthfeel. Boring. ABC Liquors, Betton.
