2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Thin frothy white head of medium sized bubbles. Reduces quickly. Light carbonation. Light roasty aroma with some bready malts and some kind of root vegetable. Sweet potatoe? Bright golden orange in color. Big roasted corn flavor. Little dry palate. Like drinking liquid corn bread. Pasty flavor with some grainyness. Finish is dry and pasty. Decent flavor for a vienna but is a little corny!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Snake RIver in Jackson, WY. Poured a clear amber with a minimal head. Light yeasty aroma along with some light sweet malt. Flavor followed aroma along with some hops bitterness in the follow-through. A decent lager but not a stand-out.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Fiery orange, fairly clear, moderate fizzy off-white head, falls quickly, spotty lacing, light carbonation. Pale bready aroma, very subtle grains, slight sweetness. Otherwise very non-descript for a Vienna. Malty tongue, soft sweetness, slightly bready, with a tinge of graininess. Clean, with a straw/grassiness that lingers. Body and mouthfeel are moderate. Not as rich as other examples (Eliot Ness for example), but bigger than many others and also fairly clean. Not big, but still enjoyable. Thanks Jordan!

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz. bottle. Nice amber color, clear, medium to large head. There is a bit of an off-flavor in the aroma...not as clean as a typical lager. The flavor is more to style with a touch of caramel. Maybe a bit thin but it’s an ok beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle. Poured a medium amber, fairly clear, with a lare off-white, bubbly head which lasted pretty well. Light yeasty aroma, fresh bread, brown sugar, and some spice. Some sweet caramel flavor, tad bit of bitterness, light, crisp finish. Light bodied, though not watery. Not erupting, though pretty heavily carbonated. Very refreshing. A big gulp has about the same effect on me as a sloppy bite of watermellon at a picnic.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a medium amber color with a thin white head that dissapated quickly. Smells a little musty, but very minute. Tasted of malts, brown sugar, a bit of citrus, a little bit of hopiness. Nothing to write home about.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle. Poured a medium to deep orange color with a large sized off white head. Aromas of citrus, a little fruity, caramel and some cookie dough and biscuits. Tastes of caramel, dough, and citrus. Fizzy and somewhat over carbonated body that detracted from the tastes.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
UPDATED: JUN 29, 2006 This one came in my beer club and I am not familiar with the brewer. Another crap lager. Yeah. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a chestnut color with a large tan head. The aroma is sour vegetal malts. The flavor is sour, mildly vegetal and has a strong vinegar element. Drain pour.
