3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A pretty orange, this is a light beer that is malty but not too much. A decent beer, be great to introduce "bad beer"drinkers to.

On tap at PP Carlsbad. Clear yellow pour, frothy white head. Sweet malt, biscuits, hint of vegatble, and light hops. Non-offensive, but not to interesting.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear brilliant copper under a thin foamy white head. The nose is very biscuity and grainy-earthy. The flavor is a tad bit large and bold for its style, which I have no problem with, but the flavor profile itself is a bit too toast and biscuit for my taste, with amber grains and a lager yeasty finish. A bit doughy sweet throughout.

Exactly what I would expect from a Sierra Nevada Vienna. .. Tawny, squat bottle, nice hopping, malty. Thanks to PorterPounder, enjoyed whilst the Noles snatched the Canes’ presumed victory. 60 minutes of football, MyMammy.

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

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clean straw gold pour with one finger of crackling off white head. Nose shows lots of bready toasted malt and a lightly sweet character over notes of herbal hops. Flavor shows lots of toasted grain and bread with a nice spicy hop balance. Medium body and spicy almost dry palate and finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours clear golden copper with a large white head. The aroma has clean bready malt, light vanilla, light spicy/leafy hops and mild caramel. It has a medium / light rough body with some fairly sharp abrasive carbonation. The flavor starts really dry with crackers, dry caramel, fruitiness (apple / dried apricot sort of thing), spicy hops and herbal notes. The finish has far more of a hoppy presence than most of the style and remains bone dry. This is a beer you could study for subtleties or drink down quick and not thing much about. Enjoyable.

Aroma is caramel, light fruit and malts. The flavor is fruit, caramel, light citrus and a mildly bitter/tart finish. Very easy to drink, among the best in the style.
