2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
THOUGHTS: Might have been a little stale or slightly skunked, but a dedent Vienna was in there somewhere.
TECHNICAL: Bottle. poured a slightly hazy, light copper or very light rust with a large, off-white head that mostly diminished and left good lacing. The aroma had moderate toasted and sour malt; lighter caramel; light grassy and earthy hops; hints of cooked corn and slight skunk. The initial flavor was slightly sweet; while the finish was lightly sweet and slightly bitter. There was toasted malt, honey, slight skunk, grassy hops, sour malt, earthy hops, light nuttiness, caramel, and a hint of lemon. The light to medium body was watery with soft carbonation and a metallic finish.

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.
