2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a dark gold - no head - nose is very sweet, smelling a lot like honey - some floral hops and light toasty Vienna, but mostly just sweetness - flavor is quite similar - very sweet, tasting like honey and/or syrup at times - moderate grassy and floral hops and a light toastiness do not do enough to balance - not exactly bad, just one dimensional and overly sweet.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light brown color. Malt and dry grass with grain. Very drinkable and a pleasant grainy aftertaste I expect from a vienna.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark golden color with just a hint of red. Clean crisp malt and a hint of floral hops. Lightly toasted and pale malt sweetness in front taken back by a dried flower hops balance. Nice, clean, balanced, just what I am looking for in a lager. Finish has a touch of acidity to give a little quenching quality. A nice lager to the line up of otherwise ales.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is a nice malt-accented lager that drinks nicely w/o being too sweet. It’s a golden orange color veering on yellow w/ a small head of mixed bubbles. Nose and flavor both are of a sort of exaggerated nutty malt character. It’s actually kind remarkable how strongly this comes through in a lighter beer. There’s a touch of sweetness here w/ just a hint of bitterness from the hops. This is an interesting take on the style. I would normally expect it to be a bit darker in color and not quite so malty but this is good too.

Supposedly they changed the style of this beer to a Vienna. The beer pours to a clean copper colored body with a creamy thin white head. The aroma is a nice corn silage and other Vienna aromas of specialty malts and crisp grains. The flavor has an intensely concentrated malted barley flavor. Subtle corn silage. Nice Vienna flavors. I love the crisp maltiness. The palate has a nice velvety feel that has a decent malt linger. Bitterness is subtle. A malt forward refreshing beer. I enjoyed it very much.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - Pours clear gold with a big foamy white head. Nose is light herbal, earthy hops, mixing with some lightly toasted grain and a dab of honey. Taste is the same, with a bit more sweetness. Grain lasts through the finish, with a touch of spicy hoppiness and hint of alcohol sharpness. Decent heft in the body, with ample carbonation and a bit of slickness. Real nice beer.
