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!

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.

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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewery. Amber and clear appearance with an off-white, light tan head. Aroma of chocolate, caramelized malts, earthy hops, light spices and toffee. Similar flavor, toasted/roasted malts and a smooth, crisp medium body. Wow.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap in Amana at the Ronneburg Restaurant. Poured a rich copper color with a nice light tan head that lasted quite a while and left good lacing. Roasted malts in the nose and other aromas of carmel and slght hops. Decent mouthfeel and a solid malt flaror. Low carbonation makes this a smooth and fairly enjoyable brew.

UPDATED: SEP 5, 2010 Original Rating, 10/4/2004: Clear brown or red color with no head. A little spice on the nose. Very dry and dusty malt taste. Eh, not much to write home about. 6/3/5/3/12
Re-Rating, 9/6/2010: Dark copper color with a thin head. Light amber and biscuity aroma. Light biscuit taste, fairly rich malt (Munich?) flavor. A bit of spice. Not sure what the heck I was drinking the first time around.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a lightly hazy orange amber with a small off white head that left hints of lacing. Aroma of caramel, grains, toasty and bready. Flavor is toasty, sweet malts, grains, cereal, some caramel, touch of hop bitterness (very light), biscuity and some citrus. I always find this style of beer hard to put into words (looking through some of the other ratings this seems to be fairly common). Bottom line is that this is an easy drinking, well made Marzen!

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/>
