4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Deep red color, medium head. A full-bodied amber. Intense malt flavor, sweet and very robust. Not very hoppy. Good balance. Nice flavor. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and very smooth. Aftertaste is malty and slightly sweet. Very nice beer.

This is a good lager. Amber color. Dry, medium bodied malt flavor with some caramel. I thought it was more of a Vienna than a marzen.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz shorty bottle picked up on a road trip through Milwaukee. Id have to assume this beer might be a little past it’s prime. Amber-brown color. Patchy, oily head. Sweet aroma, brown sugar? Fruity, easy drinking malt taste. Wow, this is actually quite nice. Balanced and crisp, this is really done right. Malty and rich, while remaining light and medium bodied on the palate. Light amber malt flavors, lots of cream, and some underlying caramel.

UPDATED: MAR 30, 2005 Good thing I live close to the Amana Colonies. Has an aroma of walnuts and some muted apples. The taste is light with a little bit of bread and caramel. Has a cheesy aftertaste on tap. Lively carbonation in the mouth. Smooth and has little head when ordered on tap. In the bottle, I find the taste to be more subtle and refined. Nice beer.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pour is dark brown with a reddish tint. Small head with absolutely no retention. Little carbonation. Aroma is light (no head to help with no aroma) - slightly sweet and roasted malt. Taste is roasted malts from the aroma with a bit of sweetness. Very light mouthfeel with no carbonation. Finish is lighty toasted malt. For something that is suppose to be an Octoberfest this is a poor representation. Not offensive, but very boring.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz. bottle thanks to pineypower. Poured a rusty copper body with a smaller off white head. Aroma is grainy with notes of peanut shells, honey topped toast. Nice medium body with slightly strong carbonation and a refreshing finish. Flavor is a bit better then the aroma with an initial ast of sour sweetness that gives way to caramel malt and toast. Not much going on here but it’s okay.

Good malt heft to it, one of the least flashy beers out there, but doesn’t mean that the beer isn’t good.

Big thanks to GT2 for this one in trade. CHeers, GT! Pours a hazy orange-amber with a small white head. Nose is light German malts with some lager and some mild grassy hops. Flavor is similar- light malts and some hops with a bit of yeast. Light to medium in body and a decent Vienna.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
A majestic thanks goes out to caneyehavefourbeers, hehheh, for this one! Has a sweeter candy armoa. Orange brown in the bottle without any sediment. Slight haze. Head fades to nothing after a few. Initial taste and impression is way higher than the 4.9% listed here. If it was me, I’d say about 6 perhaps even 7! Somewhat thicker oily viscosity in this baby. Strong and wayward. Props across my tongue like an iron ore laden barge being driven by a tugboat against the flow in the ohio river someplace around beaver county. Wew, a little more personality than I care for in a vienna. Finish is almost medicine in nature. Yowzer, I think i’m gettin dizzy near the end of this bottle. Rude at times on the way down the throat. Some hops in there lurking around on the end. Comes off somewhat like a spice or veggie brew. I’m glad I got to try this unique brew!
