3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Golden hue with a small fading head and no lace. The aroma has notes of vanilla, bready malts, toffee, aromatic german hops (Saaz anyone?), and apple peel. The taste has a smooth malty note with a light bitter and fruity finish. Not too complex but easy to drink. The feel has a soft velvety texture which added to the overall enjoyment. A solid brew and pure Vienna.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: MAY 14, 2007 Rerate, 5/07 from a can aboard NW Airlines: sweet and starchy, this basically comes across as a colored macro crap lager. Original notes: [Orange-amber color with quickly surrendering head. Sweet juicy aroma. Flavor’s not as sweet as anticipated, but still predominately sweet malts with virtually no finish. OK.]

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle - Old Chicago Pizza - Apple Valley, Mn. Light copper pour which sports a light white head with good thick lacing. Somewhat of a caramel aroma, not overly prominent. Has a good, sweet malty flavor for a lagerwith some sweet caramelly notes and a nutty undertone. Decently thick mouthfeel for a lager. Not bad.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This orange/amber lager is a bit light on the aroma side, lightly roasted malt, caramel, a nutty bitterness. A bit watery, too. The aroma carries into the taste, finishing on a watery, sweet note with a trace of hops. Okay, I s’pose.

Picked up a single bottle in the Twin Cities area. Pours a deep orangish brown brew with an off white, lumpy foam head. Slowly dissolving and leave a good lacing. Aroma is light citrus, caramel and a touch of brown sugar. Taste is sweet with caramel and a flowery aftertaste. The bitter finish is sweet compared to the lighter brews from Schell.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice lighter red color. Agree with Wabash, has maltiness and a fairly light flavor. Definitely better than most other Viennas out there. Just enough hops to keep it interesting.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber with a quickly dimminished light cream head. Mild malt and hops aroma. Touch of anise in the flavor and finish. Watery finish feel leaves you wanting more. Maybe not more of this but something more.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This bottled brew poured a large sized head of frothy mostly lasting off-white colored bubbles that left behind an unnoted lacing. The body contained average carbonation, was transparent and copper brown in color. Its aroma contained notes of grassy floral malts. Its mouth feel is initially tingly smooth with a tingly off palate and a strange aftertaste. Its flavor contained malty notes. A very average brew.

You gotta love that malty aroma. Amber in color with a nice thick head that stays around enough to provide a smoothness as it is sipped. A nice little zing to the flavor. Perhaps some hops sneaked in to give it a hint of a tart bite. This is primarily a malty beer with a nice roasted flavor. I like a sweet malty beer and this one pitches to my wheelhouse.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a caramel-brown color with a large foamy beige head that left good lacing. The aroma was faintly tart with a note of cherries. The flavor was caramel, nut and sweet malts with light notes of cherry and berry. The finish was long and tangy with notes of nut and berry lingering. Medium body. Decent.
