3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, as pictured. Drank it out of the bottle so I’ll have to defer to the other reviewers on that point. Heavy on the bready yeasty flavor, but not unbalanced. Pretty sweet but easy to drink.

Solid easy drinking amber lager with a good balance between malt and hops, a clean, crisp finish and a decent body. Low on flavor and aroma.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Wal-Mart: Poured a burnt amber hue colored liquid and topped with a perfect layer of foam head. Aroma is mild with a fragrant scent of caramel malts while also smelling as if this was an imported German beer. The drink is well balanced and has a notice of spiced hops while also having a sweet background of caramel malts. Reminds me a lot of Karl Strauss vienna style and I mean that in a good way. Finish had notes of astringent medicine flavors.

Pours a crystal clear reddish orange with a white head. Aroma of hay and bread. Taste is malty and complex sweet up front with a bitter dry finish. Good balance.

Poured from 12 oz bottle into schooner glass.
Appearance: pours a 1" off white fluffy head that recedes slowly with some mild lacing. Color is a mostly clear amber with abundant streaming carbonation.
Aroma: balanced aroma of bread dough, pungent hops, and cracker.
Mouthfeel: between light and medium bodied, somewhat oily with a quick dry finish.
Flavor: medium roasted barley and tangy, pungent hops combine nicely with some toasted bread and biscuit notes.
Overall: another winner from Sierra Nevada. Highly drinkable and delicious.

I’m gonna vote no on this. Thin and cardboardy. Sierra should stick to more hoppy beers.

Pours a light brownish color. Weak aroma but a nice subtle flavor. Not my favorite but very drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce bottle from a mixed Autumn 12 pack. The aroma is sweet with honey characteristics, as well as some floral notes as well. Some graham cracker is also present. Transparent orangey-copper body with a medium, creamy off-yellowish head present. Starts with some lightly sweet, crackery malt flavors. Becomes more floral in the middle, before this finishes with a fairly aggressive, bitterly hopped finish. Earthy hops. More bitter than I would expect.

Amber. Spicy, grassy hops on the nose. Taste- bready malt and spicy hops. Very we'll balanced. Tasty Vienna.
