2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
An okay, easy drinking lager. Amber colored, a ton of quickly disappearing head. Weak bodied and sweetish. Little to no hop bite. Picked this up at the 930 club in 2014.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Lagery and uninteresting. Not even a taste of rust that sometimes shows up in a distinguished can of vienna. Tap at Boundary Road.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a clear copper body with a small fizzy white head that faded pretty quickly. The nose is quite grainy and sweet with some caramel and toasty malt. Minimal to no hops in the aroma. The flavor is rather thin and sweet, lacking in much vienna malt character and any hop character at all. It doesn’t really even come across as a lager, the finish is grainy and husky and completely lacking in smoothness. Light bodied and thin with fizzy soft carbonation. Pretty poor attempt at a Vienna.

Poured from bottle. Sweet malt aroma. Classic amber with beige head. Lots of toasted malt in flavor balanced with hops. Slight bit of pepper. Bold and refreshing feel. Nicely done.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap @ Provisions Market. Golden pour with a soapy white head. Nose is really heavy on the fruit esters (mostly apple) and grainy sweetness. A touch of yeast, rice, and maybe just a hint of toast. Mostly sweet on the palate. Lots of rice, grain, and apple. Mild yeast and very minimal hop character. Not offensive, at least.
