2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle, Stubbies & Steins. Hazy copper with thick bone-colored head. Diacetyl mars the aroma, which is also yeasty and sour but has some bready notes too. Weird sourness and a slick mouthfeel signal that this bottle may be off. I can tell there is a good brew under here but the sourness is killing it, it’s a shame.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml bottle in half mas. Brown with lasting head and lace. Very caramel and bread. Toasted caramel flavor with lager grassiness and a tiny bit of wateriness. Medium-light body and carbo. For a Vienna, I think this is quite good. Overall, if you like carmel-tasting dark lagers, this is a good one. I’m enjoying it.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
The aroma is sweet and somewhat sour with grain, hay, grass, and herbs. The appearance is deep amber with an average head. The flavor is like the aroma with a cereal finish. The palate is thin but OK. Overall its a quality beer but I am just not into it. It reminds me of an Oktoberfest beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a a medium brown with a thin tan head. Aroma is nutty roasted malt and weak coffee.
Flavour was much lighter than the aroma and the body seemed thin.
Repeating the nutty tones and thin roast malt/coffee. Some toffee sweetness. Flat finish.
A bit dissapointing.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear, dark copper, with a thin ring of foam - aroma of raisins, dark german breads, buttered toast - the flavor is not as sweet as the aroma - some moderate noble hops at first, making way for toffee, prunes - bready/doughy through the middle - a little bit of sweetness - gets dry and nearly tart on the back end - clean and refreshing, with a little bit of wintery spiciness way in the background to make it a little more interesting - not bad, just not all that memorable.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A deep, somewhat cloudy, brown with a short brown-beige top. Aroma of pumpernickel, coffee, butter, and toffee. Medium-full body with good carbonation. Flavorful malts of toffee and caramel, with buttery hazelnut flavors fading in strong, and a smooth root beer and sour whiskey finish.
