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, Iíd 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 iím 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. Iím glad I got to try this unique brew!

Good malt heft to it, one of the least flashy beers out there, but doesnít mean that the beer isnít good.

Thanks to MNovak for my first Iowa rating, 49th State.
Short 12oz bottle. Amber color, thin white head. Aroma of toasted grains, mostly fruity esters. Tastes of mixed berries under the malts. Well balanced of light, toasted grains, earthy bitter hops. Very well made. My 2400th USA Rating.<b/>

12 oz. bottle from brewery. Pours amber with a decent biege head. Faint aroma of sweet malt. Tastes on the sweet malt side, reminds me somehow of a bock. There is a little hops hiding in there, some caramel too. Nice beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: DEC 8, 2004 2004 bottle compliments of MilkmanDan. Deep red color, clear and filtered, no head. Toffee aroma, coppery and yeasty. Starts out very sour and yeasty, light caramel. Medium and made with a good amount of water but yet not ridiculously thin. Some light sweetness on the end. Surprisingly pretty good and reminiscent of an alt with all of the yeast copper and sweetness in the middle. It works as a marzen though itís a sweet version of one, with not as much graininess. Didnt find much in the way of spicy hops.

Amber with a medium white head. Aroma of light caramel , sweet malts and light German hops. Taste is pretty light too, mostly of sweet caramel with a little hop character to balance it out. A drinkable and forgettable Vienna.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pretty standard amber; it strikes me that the length of the commercial description may be inversely related to the depth of flavors--I canít think that this needs this much of a write-up: itís just your basic "broad appeal" beer. Bottle.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light burnt orange color with very little white head. Aroma of dough and some stale malt. Crisp, albeit watery flavor with some notes of caramel and dough. A bit of Hallertau hops in the finish. Pretty bland and nondescript.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Had it on tap at Dublin Underground in Iowa City. Deep copper color with a thin head. Spicy nose and flavor with a hint of hoppy flavor and bitterness. Dry finish. Solid brew without being flashy.
