3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
pours a nice reddish brown, which brings promises of quality appearance and taste, but the lack of head, a very thin almost nonexistent somewhat carbonated lacing, leaves you disappointed, however the aroma pours out of the bottle with scents of licorice. The taste is a bit weak, which can be explained by the near bear abv of less than 4%. slight taste of licorice, and caramel. finishes a bit watered down and soft. finishes too quickly. not a bad beer but not a great one!

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Walnut and barley wort/malt aroma. Dark amber with moderate head. Nutty toffee malt and hay flavor. Decent body. A bit under-attenuated but still pleasant

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours clear, dark amber-red with frothy beige head.
Caramel, chocolate scent.
Sweet, light, watery caramel malt flavor....
Nothing bad about this one, but it’s just too weak and watery for the style......no personality or depth.....

Tried during a paddle taster and was glad that I only had 2 oz. of this beer! Not a favorite or a second taster.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at the brewery taproom. Pours clear, amber-red with a mild, creamy tan head. The aroma holds butterscotch and bread, perhaps some caramel. Light to medium sweet flavor, a bit of butterscotch, maple syrup, bread. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Light sweet finish with lightly toasted brown bread, maple accents, creme caramel. So so.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber into lager glass. Dark amber/red color. Malty, earthy, toasted syrup aroma. Earthy, roasted nuts, clove taste. Palate is medium body, oily feel, soft carbonation, quick pine finish. Overall a fine example of a Vienna lager. Don’t knock it just because you’re an IPA fanboi... (spelling edit)

Draft at balloon fest. Just confirmed that I don’t like lagers. Couldnt wait to drink an IPA to get the after taste out.
