2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
341ml bottle pours a pale golden color with a small white head that leaves only traces of lacing. Aroma is malty grains with faint hops. Taste is more bitter than the aroma and light malty sweetness. Standard macro lager.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
This wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. Kind of sweet, bready flavour and aroma. Nothing special or interesting. But not repulsive.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Originally rated September 2005. Old Vienna is one of my good go-to easy-drinking lagers. It pours a golden colour with a medium head and carbonation. A rim of foam is formed around the glass, leaving lace as I sip through. The aroma is typical grain malt. The taste starts off slightly bitter and hits a smooth finish. The aftertaste is like the corn I enjoy, found in High Life. One good swill. Notes (2012): Had a 12 of this on New Years Eve... and it was still a pretty decent swiller.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
355 ml can from The Beer Store. Pours a clear golden yellow with small white head that does hang around. Aroma is sweet corn and little else. Flavour is similarly adjunct-dominated; maybe a little grass. Pretty thin; lightly carbonated. Weak, although should I have expected otherwise.

1.2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Always sampled from a 341ml bottle. This was a staple growing up, I remember it in a stubby bottle particularly. Typical mac golden colour. Grain and corn taste.
