2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Orange with a large white head. No visible carbonation. Aroma: Mild milky aroma with a bit of grain and corn, some slight hops but not prevalent. Hmm. Flavour: Malty and grassy with some bitterness, I hate to admit it but I can certainly taste the chestnuts!! (years of collecting them as a kid) however has a somewhat ’chemical’ and artificial finish. Not bad but not great either.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Rusty red pout with a foamy thick head. Scent is hoppy and grainy, not very encouraging. Watery mouth and a dry finish. Not much in between. Slightly bitter. Alright but nothing to write about, well except for on here.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
330ml bottle from the LCBO
Pours a nice coppery amber with a good sized white head and lots of lacing
The aroma is sweet grassy malts and a touch medicinal
The taste to me reminds me of a bland malt liquor

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: APR 9, 2009 Bottle: pours a shimmering amber-orange color with a 2 finger frothy cap that lasted and laced well.
Luscious Muenchener malts in the aroma mingle with some woody-nutty tones and wisp of herbal hops...very pleasant.
The flavor is just a more intense, complex version of the aroma... rich bready-sweet Munich malts complimented with nutty tones and balanced with some great German noble herbal-woody hopping...clean drying finish.
This one skirts the Vienna lager genre but the color is not right, just the same it is a sturdy flavorful Munchen-style lager that can compete with any commercial Munich amber.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
nose is grassy with dull hops, and wet paper. FLavor is pungent, and smacks of wet paper, and cardboard. There is an odd bitterness that isn’t very pleasant. Let’s just call this what it is.....a bad lager they tried to gussy up with advertising CHESTNUT flour!?!?! why in the world would that be appealing or used in making a beer? PASS!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from the LCBO- Deep transparent amber with a fizzy and short lived white fizz. Nose is floral hops, bread crust, some spices, a bit woody. Tastes of spicy floral hops, caramel malts, some semi sweet fruit, vanilla and wood. Nice carbonation was lively throughout. Bitter and sharp finish. Pretty good stuff.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a golden honey colour with a small white head. The aroma is mainly sour, but if you stick your nose way in the glass you can pick up some strange dry notes of flour. The flavour starts with a quick note of malt sweetness, which leaves to be replaced with a dry sourness, and ends on a strange dry flavour which im guessing has something to do with the chessnuts. Why they put chessnuts in here I have no idea, and how they can call this a vienna is beyond me. But still, could be worse, still drinkable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
2009-03-01. Amber copper body with a fairly small head. Aroma of dry malt, mild nutty character may be the power of suggestion or really be there. Light touches of caramel. Flavour is likewise, malt character is on the dry side overshadowing mild sweet caramel malt touches and nutty notes similar to those of the aroma. Average palate. Okay. Celebrating a 3rd birthday, perhaps it makes sense that it scores a 3. Bottle shared by Tuqueboy from the LCBO.
