2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Copper coloured with large white head. Aroma has malt , caramel and some floral/herby/nutty notes. Taste is sweet, sugary, malty. Medium bodied. Alcohol is well hidden. A strange beer, not without merit.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Sample from bottle at the Mondial. Very clear, pale gold with little head or lace...touch skunky in the nose, but this fades reasonably fast to offer light caramel and corn sugar...simple, sweet, dull and sugary texture, with a lighter, dry finish and some bitter herbs...strangely...waxy? Not much of a Vienna as far as I’m concerned, really just a slightly odd pale lager.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Corked and caged bottle. Large white head that mostly dimiinished, fine-small sized bubbles, lacing was fair, carbonated, transparent, and a golden hue. Aroma was malty, sweet and fruity (lemon?) Sweet, bitter, malty, and lemon(?) taste. Smooth palate. Light-medium body.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Grainy, sweet, lightly citrus aroma has a slight musty, barnyard character in the aroma. Clear golden-copper with shy white head that recedes to ring. Grassy, vegetal hop flavour with some grainy malts. Fairly sweet at first but balanced by a fair bitterness. Medium-light body with moderate carbonation. While this is certainly a passable beer, I never would have guessed it to be a vienna lager. Sampled at Mondial de la Bière 2005.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
2005 can at Mondial, 6/4/05. Deep honey gold, clear, but not thin and watery looking (but then, not looking much like a vienna either). White bubbly head quickly disappears and some foam clings to the edges. Honey, soft heathery herbs and grainy vienna malt in the nose. Slight touches of sourdough, with honey and more light malts in the flavor. Light farmy hops are present as well and there is some earthiness, perhaps light touches of yeast in the background. Moderate carbonation and a medium body. Surprised to see it’s 6% abv. For such a light beer, it dosent come across at all.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Canned - 500ml. Nice dark gold body topped with a fair white head. Malty aroma with nutty, floral, and herbal notes. Taste is smooth and well balanced, and is a bit less complex than the aroma is. Ends with a good herbal/hoppy finish. Original and decent Vienna.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber: Small soapy head. i guess due to its age. A smooth mix of lemon, bread and a little malt balanced into a hazel clear brown pour. Not too bad.
