Clear ruby amber, thick foamy beige head. Aroma of bread, caramel, earth and spicey hop. Taste is like an O’fest with some bitter hops and roast balanced by toffee. Medium body, smooth carbonation.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle marked 2649-0834. A dark amber pour with lively carbonation and a thin white head. The aroma has muted malts and hops along with a little touch of frutiness in the scent. The mouthfeel is pretty average. The taste gives off a more caramel malt flavor but it is rather bland. A slightly better hoppy ending. This is fairly easy to drink but has little in the way of character.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Refrigerated bottle poured into shaker. Pours clear amber with half finger that dissapates quickly. Some lacing, medium body, medium carbonation, and caramel malt aroma. Taste is toasted malt and grassy hop finish. Not a fan.

This was a nice heavier vienna beer. It was kind of sweet with a good malt.

Bottle. Wow. After the maple porter I thought I must have gotten the worst of the winter pack out of the way. Now I’m just terrified to try the rest. Corn. Creamed corn. Corn syrup. Goddamn government subsidies.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice malty lager with a bockish sweetness, but a rich spicy hop character. Aroma is shows brown sugar, earthy malt and some noble twang. Pours a gorgeous auburn with a thick sticky white head that leaves a lot of lacing. Finish is well balanced with a little brown sugar sweetness showing through receding into a mellow malty lingering. Packs more flavor than most other Viennas I’ve tried. Well done.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Crisp lagery aroma, with some sweet/sour cherries added. Slightly sharp with that Euro/Bavarian malt.
The appearance is clear red-orange. Decent head retention; leaves a remnant on the tongue.
The flavor is a nice German lager malt base, with the cherries acting as an accent to replace the hops.
The palate is creamy and not bad. More of an ale feel. An average, drinkable lager. Not great, just okay.
