3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Classic Vienna malt aroma. Very "fresh" smelling. Appearance: somewhere between gold and red. Not much lacing. Fairly large, pillowy head. Flavor: toasty bread, slight spiciness, herbal hops lingering. Clean and tasty.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle from Xfroads. Poured a clear clean reddish body with a smaller frothy off beige head. Aroma is old malts, slight toffee and caramel, hint of old oranges. Flavor is the same but seems a bit more malty with more breads and toast. Palate is big, stronger carbontation that lasts and is a bit stingy. Meh

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aromas of bread, cereal, and caramel. Pours clear orange with a thin white head. Nice flavor for a lager, fairly bitter and a long finish.

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.

Clear amber with a fair amount of white head. Bready, malt aroma. Flavor is similar, strong malt taste with a little bit of a hoppy finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle from the Sierra Nevada Fall Pack, packaged over 3 months ago and purchased at Biggie Wine & Liquor and poured into my Funkwerks goblet. Light amber-orange, slightly hazy appearance with a white head and light lacing. Aroma of toasted grains, bready malts, floral notes, light spicy hops and a touch of fruit. Similar flavor, smooth and balanced with light malty sweetness and mild hop bitterness. Light to medium body, crisp and pretty clean with ample carbonation. Easy to drink, a pretty decent Vienna-style lager. Probably a bit bitter when fresh.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle. deep golden with one finger head. this is a style i’ve never really liked, but maybe it’s because i’ve never had a good one before now. toasty malt, some caramel and a bit bready. mild hops in the finish. no one element stands out, but they mesh very well.

12 oz. bottle.
A beautiful beer that well represents the type. Pours a light hue for a Vienna, with a off-white head. Aroma is biscuity and malty with a bit of orange. Taste is grainy and bready with some grassy hops.
