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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
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: Aroma is very sweet and malty. Caramel and brown sugar. Pours a transparent brownish-orange with a white head that is short lasting. Malty caramel and brown sugar taste with some slight bitterness, sourness, and acidity in the finish. Overall a decent beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Not bad. Not quite as strong a malt presence as a dopplebock, but heading down that line.

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 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.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy amber with a thin white head that goes away quickly. Aroma of caramel, toffee and sweet malts. Taste is very malty with caramel leading the way. Creamy texture to go with a medium palate and a mild bitter finish. One of the better Vienna beers I’ve had.
