3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Systembolaget, Haparanda. Clear dark brown beer with a thick beige head. Sweetish aroma is caramel malts, lactose and some hops. Flavour is quite sweet, chocolate, malts and a bit bitter in the end. Very soft and smooth mouthfeel. Propably the best vienna I’ve had.

Kopparfärgad med litet skum! Doften är ok men smaken är som att dricka söt malt innan man kokat vörten!? Dålig flaska??

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma: The smell is sweet, dried fruits, grains and some sour, also fruity, notes.
Appearance: This beer is clear medium brown with ahint of red, an off-white head that leaves good lacing.
Taste: The taste has a brown sugar with dried dates and apples sweetness. Not much sourness, but some bitterness, like banana peel.
Palate: Medium carbonation, a medium body with a dry finish.
Overall: A good solid beer that is a little meal in it self (or maybe more a snack).

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A mid, reddish-brown coloured beer with a quickly dissipating head. A complex aroma of wet wood, chocolate, coffee, vegetable and a hint of smoke. Very dry mouthfeel. The taste is dry, and follows on from the aroma, a woody, slightly smoky taste is bolstered by dark chocolate and coffee bitterness, plus a hint of spice and dark fruit, this then accentuates a tangy hop flavour that comes through towards the end.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a medium amber with a frothy of white head and light carbonation. Aromas of caramel, spruce/fruit hops, toffee, and slight hint of wood. When I drink I get this reminiscent feeling/thought I’m an old westerner with a cowboy hat, white beard, cigar in the other hand and overlooking a desert with the sunset. Flavors of toffee upfront, light caramel, spruce hops and a slight hint of smoke. Light to medium sweet, medium bready and leaves just a like smoke/wood aftertaste.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
A very dark example of a Marzen/vienna, from a good brewery. Tastes strongly of brown bread crusts, or a Scandinavian-type rye bread. Doesn’t really have the smoothness to counteract the powerful malt, BUT my bottle was 6 months out of date.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The commercial description here captured pretty well the essence of this beer: Octoberfest in its basic malt structure, with breadienss and yeastiness being at the heart. But at the same time there are some significant hops; I wouldn’t say that they’re American, which is good. Makes for an interesting beer. Bottle.
