This has a strange aroma kind of like vegetable medley and whipped cream, its hard to explain. Well it was a bit carbonated with some sort of off taste. A bit malty with a bitter aftertaste. Nothing really stood out. Decent at best.

Crisp and mildly hoppy. Finishes dry. It’s pretty good. Good job Wyoming. That’s 1 point.

(GABF 2004) Malty. I could not taste the use of good german/vienna malt. Average brew.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep copper with the slightest amount of cloudiness. Fruity malts with big, sweet caramel overtones. Light toast flavors. Hop bitterness (mostly herbs) follows through and balances things out nicely, though I wouldn’t say that it’s very bitter. Overall, I thought it had some nice flavors and was a pleasure to drink.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Orange/tan color with a slightly floral aroma, and little head. Mild flavor; not hoppy. Clean aftertaste. Reminds me of Lakefront Brewery’s Riverwest Stein beer, but not as good; unremarkable.

Brownish gold in color (bronze?) with little head, no lace. Aroma has a grassy, dirt sense to it and some sweetness. Rather thin, but crisp mouthfeel. Sweet on the tongue, earth, some mustiness and herbs. Smooth and simple. Lingering sweetness on finish.

UPDATED: MAY 3, 2004 RERATE: This beer deserves a much higher rating than I originally gave it (3.5), I had it on tap recently, it was very good, and subsequent bottled brews are really growing on me. It's a simple brew that's very smooth, malty, caramelly, lightly hopped, and quite drinkable, AND one hellova session beer. I am more than pleased, and somewhat impressed with it. It's showing up more and more in my fridge.....

Not bad after a couple hours skiing at Snow King. Kind of chewy carmel malty texture.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep bronze color, light caramel color, light head and lacing. The aroma is lightly hoppy. The body is light and easy to drink, definately a lager but with some great malty tastes, caramel and very earthy. Good vienna!
