Bucket of Blood (Skeleton Biker): Pours a transparent orange bronze with a well-lacing frothy white head. Crisp citrusy hoppy nose has a hint of pale maltiness. Body starts thinner and semi-sweet with an earthy bittering hop presence toward a drier bittersweet finish.

main impression...not enough flavor. slightly sweet, slightly malty nose. a tiny bit of bitterness in the flavor and finish. that’s it. how can their amber be so good, and the rest so boring?"

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured copper-orange with good head, looking like a home-brew. There's a great citric-grapefruit hoppy aroma here, which is unexpected. The flavor is well hopped, but with the overriding character of the caramel lager. Bit more bittered than traditional Vienna's, but a good beer.

NABA ’05: Gold, nose of light malt, some huskiness & light crisp hops. The flavor is balanced, clean finish, nice body.

Bottle. The body was dark amber with a light khaki head. The aroma was sweet cake donuts with some fall leaves. There was also some fresh wood and caramel. The taste was toffee with some tea and bread crust. I thought that this was a nice example of the style.

UPDATED: DEC 15, 2004 Nothing distinguishable about this beer really. Not very hoppy, nice balance between light and filling. Has a somewhat nutty flavor, which detracts from the beer’s quality. Had on tap in Ely, Nevada. Re-rate. Bought again in Vegas by mistake, thought I was buying one I hadn’t had. Well, not as good this time around

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Appearance: Pours a lightly hazy, orangey body with a thin, white head.
Smell: Vague pale and caramel maltiness with some light floral hints.
Taste: Hint of caramel malt and sweetness, and nothing more maltwise. Bit of spicy hops. Disappointing non-finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium carbonation.
Drinkability: Not really much of a vienna and even that likeable for that matter.

12oz bottle pours out a nice amber topped with a small white head. Aroma of light malt and a touch of hops. A little hop and some malt. not bad
