2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Tap. Amber red color, light tan head. Aroma of toasted malts and seaweed. Lots of salt water / beach smell in the nose of this beer. Kinda odd, I’ve never experienced a scent like that before. Completely flavorless. I tasted nothing. No sweetness, no malt characteristics. Not much fizz either. I sent it back. Booo.

Bottle at the local. This is what it is. Not the best vienna I have had but its better than most schwill. A tad overly corney and vegetable-ly at times. Not one I plan to revisit.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: FEB 18, 2005 Nice and deep, true to the name, with some dark auburn highlights and a good sized off-white head. Aroma of toasted malts, crisp lager yeast, honey and light notes of chocolate. Flavor is rich and sweet, with light toasted malt sweetness, some hints of caramel and a clean, crisp lager finish, which didnt water down. The texture is smooth, bordering on creamy. Medium body, moderate carbonation. One of the better beers I tried while down in Knoxville and it’s impressive to see this style (sort of a Vienna/American Dark hybrid) being produced fairly well down here.

Thanks to emacgee... dark amber with a copper center, clear, big tope head, very cloud like with great retention, looks great... really cheap generic nose, caramel and skunk, lots of corn, and some coffee, not great... the taste is even worse!, super flat, devoid of flavor at the front then a chemical skunk finish... pass on this

on tap at ohb 7/12/11.
crystal clear amber color with an off white head.
the nose is all about the corn... sulfur, light caramel, toast and some vegetals.
the flavor is the same...heavy on the canned corn with an earthy damp aftertaste.

The smell on it is just a tad dirty to me. Pours a darker amber with some slight hints of red to it. Moderate head. Relatively unremarkable in taste; I don’t get much to it at all.

On tap at Union Jack’s. Light clear red, thin whitish head. Lightly nutty caramel aroma, some fruitiness, but aroma is faint. Taste is pit fruits, toasty malts, then lots of toasted malt and caramel. Good stuff.
