Draft at the Schockoe Craft Beer Festival in Richmond, 8/26/06: An amber beer. Sugary mlat and an almost tangy coppery metallicness. Nice bitterness in the finish. I liked this fest-style beer.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from dkachur. Thanks man! Aroma is nice and malty with some moderated fruitiness and some caramel, light floral hops too. Pours a hazy amber/gold tone with a thin head. Flavor of moderately sweet caramel malts, light fruitiness, and crisp floral hops in the finish. Light and crisp with pretty high carbonation.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
16oz pint at Clyde’s in Chinatown pours a clear amber with some creamy, white head. Nose is fine, some yeast, some bread, a little root veg, some mild soap, not much else. Flavor has a rusty penny thing happening, some muddle citrus, but mostly just yeast and bread. Merciful, clean finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I was surprised how much I liked this one. I’m generally not a huge fan of viennas, but this one as nicely bold and assertive. Nice mix of caramel malt and and a dryish, hoppy finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Nose is sweet and floral, juicy citrus -- really nice effect from noble hops -- and a lightly grainy toasty malt character. Pours orange-golden with strong carbonation and a soapy beige head. Oily light body, plenty of malt and juicy citrus juice, light toasting and crisp, dried out, very low bitterness, clean and lightly floral. Reminds of some recent improvements to authentic German Pilsner, especially in the hop department, but the malt is thin and a bit weak, bit tired despite the mild refreshemnt.

12 oz bottle. Pours a nice clear sparkling copper with a nice lasting white head and good lace. Aroma is lightly sweet caramel and crackery malts, lightly toasted bwheat bread, and some earthy and slightly peppery hops. Flavor is clean, nice toasted malts, biscuity, light caramel flavor, nice crisp bitterness, a bit herbal and slight grass. Crisp and nice finish- good vienna/mexican amber lager.
