2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a very reddish color. Nose is grainy and metallic. Taste is a bit yeasty, astringent. Finish is nothing to speak of, just convincing me again that I am
not a lager lover. Quaff Score 4 / 10

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a clear amber with a white head and metallic, malty aroma. Taste is crisp, of toasted malts, caramel, and grains. Not much flavor and nothing special with this one.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle from TJ’s. More of a dark yellow than a copper. Aroma is grainy, corn kernels, with hints of berries. Taste is overwhelmingly MUSTY. Date on the bottle is.... nowhere to be found, so I’ll assume it’s fresh, and if that’s the case I’ll take a pass on this going forward. The mustiness is up front, plus in the finish, kind of how a damp basement would taste if you could bottle it. Body is crisp, and there are other flavors of more light grain and corn, but overall this one isn’t working well for me....

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear copper with a small white head that lasts a while. Slighly bready aroma, with sweet toasted malt and some mellow floral hops. Nice crisp flavor with more citrus on the finish than the aroma had suggested. Pretty refrezhin.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Rich copper color with a little haze. Large off-white head is very frothy and long lasting. Grainy straw aroma has, at moments, some bright sourness underneath. Metallic flavors up front wane into a grainy wheat and sweet corniness that ultimately ends slightly sour and minerally. Not the best, but not terrible.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours clear brilliant copper, strong 1 finger head. Aroma is yeasty bread, buttery biscuits, some spicy woody hop notes. Taste is very bready and biscuity with some spice, finishes minerally and toasty. Body is creamy smooth, medium, bodied, lower than average carbonation, biscuity dry finish. Overall, pretty good but pales in comparison to Ironworks and Flywheel which I have enjoyed recently.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle from Armanetti’s. Pours a crystal clear, golden-copper colored body with a finger-width, frothy, white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is soft floral hops and fruit with a touch of herbal spice over a pale, grainy, bready maltiness. A touch of honey and caramel. Flavor is clean and grainy up front with a light caramel and bready sweetness. A nice floral hopping and soft herbal spice with a touch of honey sweetness and some fruits before a hint of toast comes in. Some munich malt towards the end as this finishes dry with a light, clean bitterness and balanced sweetness. Fairly lengthy aftertaste following a medium-light, but fuller feeling, smooth body and a clean, medium-high carbonation. Overall, a very clean and fairly crisp Vienna. Really nice body with a pleasant grainy, bready, slightly honey-caramel sweet maltiness and a balanced, herbal bitterness and floral fruitiness. A solid go-to local 6-pack.
