3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This is a beer that I drank for the first time more than 10 years ago, at that time it was a personal favorite.
The beer looked nice, amber with a huge head. Aroma of mild roasted malt, bread, nuts and some toffee. About the same in the taste. Pleasant bitterness and with a medium body. Not a world class beer but nicely drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Vackert bärnstensfärgad. Medelhögt skum som bildar lock och lite skumrester på glaset. Doft av kola, sött bröd och blommig citrushumle. Smaken är välbalanserad. Liten sötma och snälla blommiga humletoner från fuggles, cascade och saaz. En snäll markerad beska på slutet knyter ihop smakerna bra. Välavvägt, snyggt och gott. Mycket bra måltidsdryck.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
33 cl bottle @ home, rated on 05.06.2011
Aroma feels like vienna with roasted malt but it also has some vegetables. Flavour is roasted and rather dry with malt and nuts. Not a typical vienna after all, too roasted and dry for the style.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
11.2 oz bottle. Foggy amber, suds and some haze. Nose is nougat, root beer and prune. Not heavy but still substantial; needs more carb. Dusty brown sugar, dates, orange peel, tobacco and soft rye. I like where this was going but seemed a bit stale.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: coppery/rusty brown, with many specks floaring, creamy off-white head. Aroma: caramel, butterscotch, stone, raisins. Taste: caramel, toasted malts, a bit of brown sugar, some coppery-bloody tones, a little dust, and some very earthy, musty hops. Finish: mellow, with lingering earthy hops and dust. Notes: Palate was smooth and slick. Brew was very drinkable. Was hoping for a bit more rye heat. A little hoppier than most Vienna’s I’ve had.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a clear bronze body with a small white head. Nose is caramel, basement tones (again with a Swedish micro, particularly Nils Oscar...must be the national yeast! :-D) and hints of nuts and subtle malty notes. Taste is roasty caramel, nuts, hints of basement yeast and dusty hops. Smooth and very easily drinkable and fairly tasty, but not as impressive as one should think by looking at the rating. Guess I’m just not a big enough fan of Vienna, since this is supposed to be top-notch.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from the Systembolaget in Drottningsgatan. Coppery amber body with a small off white head. Full sweet grainy malty nose. Solid maltiness supports a pleasant aromatic hopiness that comes to the foreground. Light dogfood that doesn’t get in the way, fine bitterness. Quality stuff!

Bottle 33cl. A red copper colour with a small orange head. An aroma of malt and caramel. The taste is sweet and light bitter. A medium body, oily to watery texture, soft carbonation and a light bitter finish. A well balanced beer
