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.

Nice dark golden/amber color, with an ok head. Has a weak aroma from vegetables. Flavour is floral and from perfume, has a peppery and maybe to strong finsh.

Dark amber coloured with great clarity and a low off-white head. Aromatic hops and a rounded hoppy taste with some roasted barley giving the beer a smoked character. Short, dry ending. Medium palate. Very drinkable (330ml bottle from Systembolaget,02.12.2006).

Coppery color, mild nose. Roasted, surprisingly bitter and dry. Caramel and syrup, altho roastiness and bitterness are the main characters here. No aftertaste. Quite good.

2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
(330ml bottle thanks to bu11zeye) Pours a light translucent brown, good lacing. Nose is great, caramel, and sweet. Taste doesn’t follow the nose in fact it has almost no sweetness at all, but bready and toasted grains. Carbonation is the best thing here, but again no sweetness lingering on the palette.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
THOUGHTS: Might have been slightly skunked. Looked like a penny and tasted a little like one, too. Fairly well-balanced. Nice beer that may be incredible before it travels overseas to sit under fluorescent lights on a shelf for God-only-knows how long.
TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a copper that looked like a clean penny in the light and a dirty penny out of direct light. It had an average to large, off-white head that mostly diminished. When pouring in the bottom of the bottle there was small to medium particles in the body of a thick density. The aroma had moderate to heavy caramel; light to moderate grassy hops; toffee; brown sugar, and slight skunk. The initial flavor was moderately sweet and lightly bitter; while the finish was light to somewhat sweet and moderately bitter. There was a lot of caramel malt and then some metallic and grassy hops along with a little lemon and tea toward the finish. The medium body was fairly syrupy and then a little dry with fairly soft, yet slightly fizzy carbonation and a metallic and slightly chalky finish.

33 cl bottle.
Rated on 20110605.
Pours copper color with small head. Aroma of mild malts, nuts and some rye. Flavor of malts, rye, nutty notes and some fruity notes. Surprisingly good considering my low expectations.
