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.]

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at Minneapolis Beer Fest. Kind of the definition of an average beer - clear amber pour, some light malt and caramel in here, fairly light palate - not offensive, not interesting, just kind of there.

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 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.

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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not as impressive as the hopfenmalz I just tried, but a tasty vienna none-the-less - very malt-forward, with rich vienna malt showcased quite well, as all other qualities take a back seat - bread but clean, with a medium toasty, roasted character - the tiniest bit of acidity way in the back - malt lingers far into the finish, but subdued hop character adds a light crispness to the finish - balanced and tasty - viennas get no love.

Bottle. Very big lasting light brown head on dark amber. Lots of tiny bubbles of carbonation. Very light aroma. Caramel malt notes. Sweet thick toasty caramel flavour with peppery finish. Perhaps a tad sweet but very nice.
