2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours amber with a tan head. Has a macrobrew aroma, I don’t know how else to describe it. This beer is easy to drink, but not much out there. Some light caramel malt flavor. Not much in the way of hop aroma. This may be a good transitional beer, but not not much to crave here.

Bottle from Laurissa. Amber pour with little to no head. Aroma is caramel and grain. Taste is green beans, crackers, and a little astringent.

Pours a golden carmel with a thin white smell of bread and yeast with a hint of fruit....Taste is bitter yeast dough mess...this beer is a nice accent piece if you mix it with the stout.....

not impressed and certainly did not find anything to savor. poured an orange amber in color with some caramel and spice aroma. after that just a thin watery liquid without much character.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear deep amber-copper color, just a bit towards the brown side. Slight head, minimal lace, absent any real aroma. Decent caramel malt flavor and easy to drink, but there is a spice and alcohol presence (both of which linger into the aftertaste) that seem a bit out of place.

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!

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Had a nice amber color and a good head but the aroma and flavor had strong diacetyl (butter) character which hurt overall quality.

This beer sampled at Brew Ha Ha 2005: The guy poured it for me in a hurry and it left a good head for this type of beer. It smelled really good almost fruity but, it all ended there. The taste was not good at all

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Dark ruby pour with very minimal head. Aroma is asparagus and cough syrup. Flavor is more like a mix of veggies with some red cough syrup and a bit of caramel. Viscous finish with minimal carbonation.
