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.

A clear, pale gold pour with a white head. It has a light corn and barley aroma. The light body has a crisp texture with lively carbonation. The taste is mildly bitter with a clean, quick finish.
