3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at the brewpub. Clear golden with a small ring of bubbles. Nose is mild toasted grain and dry lemongrass. Flavor is the same, with some caramel. Light-medium body is soft, smoothly carbonated, and just to the sweet side but pretty drinkable.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the brewpub June 2008: Pours a transparent golden with a stringy-lacing white head. Aroma of grainy toasty pale malts with some light corn character. Body starts lightly sweet and grainy malty with a drier toasty lager yeasty finish. Pretty smooth and drinkable, but uninteresting.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
pours slightly hazy gold color with a small head. aroma is some fruity esters, some banana... flavor was malty and very fruity for a lager. hops balanced more as the beer drank. I wonder what kind of temperature control they use for this?

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
On tap, Taming of the Brew 2006. Pours a slightly cloudy light gold with a minimal thin fizzy white head. Minimal aroma of some light crystal malt. Flavor is mostly diacetyl with some light crystal malt and minimal to no hoppiness. Body is very light with prickly fizzy carbonation. This one was not good. Not sure where the Vienna style came from, but in the program for the brewfest it described it as a golden lager. Maybe better classified as a Pale Lager.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A nice medium amber with decent carbonation but no head. Aroma is mostly hoppy with some citrus and floral notes. Some malt in the nose with a hint of DMS. Flavor is really nice with a good amount of malt but definately hoppy for a lager. Good very clean and crisp finish. This one reminded me a lot of Brooklyn Lager because of the nice rounded hoppiness and overall, just a well made lager.
