yarry (527) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - APR 19, 2012
3/4 pint bottle, 5.1% A/V Pours a deep ruby brown, thin tan head. Aroma is a little spicy, leathery and chocolatey. The taste is chocolatey and roasty mainly with some slight coffee notes. Goes down smooth and leaves a nice full palate. Not a bad beer, though nothing amazing either.

A light brown ale with a white frothy head. Good aroma that raises hope. The flavor is too unbalanced and spicy to let it get a higher rating.

Pawola22 (3262) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - APR 18, 2012
On tap at the brewery in South Burlington, VT. Pours a clear amber colored body with a finger-width, frothy, beige head that dissipates quickly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is a bit of a sour lager yeast initially, but once that subsides there is some grainy malts with a light caramel sweetness, a touch a grass, and a hint of toast. Flavor is better. Toasted bread, a light caramel, a few lager fruits, and a light grass as this finishes dry with a clean, very light bitterness. Shorter aftertaste following a light, crisp body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, not a bad Vienna, but nothing special. A bit of toast and grains with a light sweetness and a balancing grassy hop. Okay.

NikkTwist (1911) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 14, 2012
Draft. Dark orange pour. Slight foamy head. Tastes suspiciously like toasted cheerios in sugar water. Slight hop bitterness reminds me it is beer. Not awful, but not good. Flavors are simple and unexciting. Looks nice though.

bottle; clear orange with small beige head; aroma- caramel, hay, floral; taste-light sweetness, lightly bitter, light body, thin feel, average carbonation, long astringent finish. Not great, but interesting twist on a lager

Light brown color. Very smooth later. Good flavor. Drank 2 of these with dinner and they went down very easy.

Not too bad, maybe I’m buzzed...but it was nice to try at least. Moving on.
