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.

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.

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.

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.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

Thanks to hopdog for picking this up for me when he was in Minnesota. Pours a lightly hazy orange amber with a smaller creamy off white head that left some lacing. Aroma of sweet caramel, some oxidation, some toffee and grainy maltiness, bready with just a touch of hops. Flavor of caramel, sweet malt, light citrus hop bitterness and some breadiness. I think this one was reach the peek of it’s shelf life..unsure of how old it was which I feel is the responsibility of the brewer to put a "born on" or "fresh by" date on the bottle...especailly for a Vienna.

Bottle. Not bad. Not quite as strong a malt presence as a dopplebock, but heading down that line.

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.
