3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle... Pours a polished light orange... nice enough white head... decent lacing.
Nose shows pretty much perfect light toasted malt and no real hops to speak of..
Flavor mirrors the palate with a bit of grassy hoppiness on the finish.. Light/medium body with good bubble makes for a very drinkable brew... Soft and still very drinkable... Perhaps too much carbonation.
I dig this one.

Pour out of 12 oz bottle, clear orange-red pour with white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, toffee, bread, some dough, some spicy notes, some nice grassy notes, touch of red fruit. Taste is a mix of grass, spice, yeast, bread, some doughy notes into some toast, slight red fruits, finishing slightly sweet, slightly dry.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle into a glass. Clean, clear copper pour. Thin off-white head.Aroma is a lot of sugar and roasted caramel malt and a bit off putting. Taste is a bit more complex. Definitely some sugary sweetness, but a hint of spicy, bitter hops as well as a solid grainy cereal malt backbone. Bit of a fruity finish. Real easy drinking. Only complaint really is that supper sugary nose. Would like a bit more of the hop character to shine through there.

Very good for style. Sweet but not overbearing. Lacks the metallic component that a lot in this style have. A stronger hop profile is what makes it nice and balanced.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
From a bottle at a party. Carmelly and moderately hoppy. Far hoppier than any Vienna I’ve had. Thin, watery finish. Way off-style. This is a poor example of a Vienna and a quite mediocre beer.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Orange color, white head, hoppy, somewhat malty aroma. Taste is smooth, easy to drink... not really much different than SNPA. Tastes like a watered down version. Kind of disappointing.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A medium amber body with a white head that had mild retention. Aroma had a really nice malt presence which consisted of toasted malts, but had nice sweet caramel malts. A slight nutty presence. Flavor was a bit of a let down. Toasted myself were nice but mild and the sweetness from the caramel malts did not much effect. Mostly two dimensional. Smooth finish. Nice beer overall

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle- Pours mostly clear light amber with a one finger head that reduces with some spotty lace. Aroma is caramel malt, peppery, not much else. The taste is caramel malt, very amberish, kind of boring, thin. I think this is the most boring beer to ever come from SN, never thought they would come out with such a bland mass market beer like this.

Bottle. The look is clear, amber in color, and has a beige colored head. The smell is firm hops, malt, caramel, bread, and dough. The taste is bread, caramel, malt, hops, ok.
