3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can. Pours a clear copper body under a one finger frothy white head that left a little sticky lace. The nose is malty and sweet with some nice Munich malt notes. Not much in the way of hops here, but I’m ok with that. The flavor is a bit husky though, but it’s still fairly decent and clean. Some nice light sweetness on the back end along with just a minimal hint of hops. Medium bodied and just a bit clingy with soft fizzy carbonation. Not the best Vienna, but it’s above average for most craft efforts.

Smells and tastes of soap. OVerly sweet at front of taste with thick syrupy, mouthfeel. Somewhat interesting hint of black tea. Doesn’t hit the mark for me.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can. Nose is sweet and lightly corny, medium/amber roast with something mildly stale or semi-skunked. Pale orange, faintly hazy with slow and minimal carbonation, a sudsy beige head. Taste lightly sweet but accumulating, very toasted with touches of acrid acidity, bitterness minimal, hops grassy and only lightly citric, malt dominates. Crisp and stings the tongue, full (too-full!) body, and the whole thing feels forced and excessive.

12oz can from Kroger. Copper orange pour. Aroma of doughy, cereal, caramel. Tastes are the same - maybe more bready than cereal. Yeah, not horrible, not good.

Transfer from BA review on 8-28-13-
Poured from can into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a deep amber, almost copper, color with a foamy one finger just off white head. The head has a decent level of retention, fading over time to leave a very little lace on the sides of the glass and a bit of a foamy film atop the brew.
Smell – The aroma is very light overall but has notes of a caramel sweetness as well a bit of an apple and other light fruits.
Taste – The taste starts with a bready and caramel sweetness mixed with some flavors of apple and notes of roasted malt. The roasted malt and apple grow a bit stronger while the caramel fades ever so slightly overall crisping up the brew. Toward the end some lighter hop flavors of a citrus nature comes to the tongue leaving a very lightly hopped, bready and slightly sweet flavor on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is rather average. Both create a very easy drinking brew.
Overall – A rather tasty and easy drinking brew that doesn’t take a lot of concentration. A nice brew for just sitting and sipping with friends in conversation.

12 ounce can into lager glass, no canning date. Pours slightly hazy orange/copper color with a 1 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with some moderate streaming carbonation. Aromas of caramel, toast, biscuit, brown bread, nuttiness, light roast, herbal, floral, light fruitiness, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready malt and light hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of caramel, toast, biscuit, brown bread, nuttiness, light roast, herbal, floral, light fruitiness, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Minimal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toast, biscuit, brown bread, nuttiness, light roast, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Nice complexity and balance of dark/bready malt and light hop flavors; with good robustness and no cloying flavors after the finish. Very clean tasting as well. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, fairly crisp, and lightly bready mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very solid Vienna lager. Good balance, complexity, and robustness of dark/bready malts and light hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A pleasant and enjoyable offering.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample at Daily Growler (as Retweet Lager). The beer is a clear orange-copper color with a medium frothy white head that dissipates gradually to a film. Sticky top ring of lacing with spots underneath. Aroma of malt, hops and slight fruit. Light-bodied with flavors of bready malt, mild hops and fruit. The finish is sweet with a short malty aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.
