3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle. Filtered brown-orange color. Thin, but respectable head. Sweet medium-dark malt aroma, a touch of seawater. Smooth and sessionable, medium bodied. There is some faint, dry, sandy hop bitterness that helps to balance out the deep, sweet malt tones. Pretty well done, though certainly not world class. Lacks some depth, certainly.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From a sampler pack. Pours clear bronze with a dense khaki head. The aroma has caramel malt that is very toasted with light spice, very smooth overall. Medium heavy body with some frothy, yet lightly sharp carbonation. The taste starts with toasted malt, nuttiness and some spice. The downfall is in the finish that gives the beer a stale astringent taste. This is merely a fair beer that would have been much better without negative traits on the finish.

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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Relatively thick malt presence, not much as far hoppiness, but that’s expected. Good beer to drink with spicier foods that are flaming hot, puts out the fire but not too sweet.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light red, small head. One dimensional flavor of somewhat sweet malt. Better than many other Vienna’s I have had.

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.

3.4 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.

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.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
