3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Got this in a variety pack - 16 oz bottles - modest aroma, good color, lacking in head, lasting after-taste (good), more hoppy than I expected. Easy to drink.

A decent amber beer, though a bit too bitter for my taste. Almost seemed to border on being a pale ale, which seems odd for a rich looking amber.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A surprisingly rich mouthfeel from a toasty, slightly peaty malty brew. Malts are long lasting, very full. I'm enjoying this side-by-side with the Sprecher Oktoberfest. This one is less caramelly and more toasted. Very similar otherwise.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Good medium amber color,small creamy head that lasted fo a short time then died to nothingness.Roasty malt aroma with a decent hops presence and semi-sweet slight yeast appearance as well in the aroma,but nothing that gets to over whelming to offset the true flavor.malty taste with a medium hop presence slightly bitter with some mild caramel notes,The after taste comes on bitter sweet with hops.This is a fairly decent brew and well worth getting.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Color is a clear ambery light coppery color with a thin but thickset foamed bubbly off-white head that fades fairly fast to a thin ring and minimal drippy lace. Smell has some roasty malts, lightly sweet of bread dough and hops come across as dry and herbal. Taste has about the same notions as its aroma with malts lasting throughout with some roasted character, lightly breadish sweetness rouse in and out, light crisp hops that are slightly dried sneak in towards its pilsner like finish. Feel is close to medium body, a bit thin, quite smooth though and very easy to drink, just not alot of action going on to make me like it any more then to just finish the off the pint and remember it not.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Lots of yeast in the nose and flavor. Medium golden or brown colour with little to no head that quickly dissipates. I personally liked their rootbeer beeter.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
This was fairly disappointing considering how much I liked their other offerings. Lacks the flavor of oter vienna and has very little malt strength. Not very impressive.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
I'm not a huge vienna fan, but this is some good stuff overall. Appearance is nothing to write home about, and the nose is pretty boring. However, the flavor is rather nice, not too sweet and has has a nice bite to it also.

This Vienna poured a large off-white creamy head that contained small sized bubbles that mostly diminished. The body was clear with an orange hue. It had a light malty aroma and the flavor was lightly bitter that lasted from the start to the finish of this brew.
