2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from a Grocery Outlet in Woodland, CA. Pours coppery amber with a slight white head. Aroma is mild malt. Med minus body. Flavor is lightly treacle. A Vienna that is rather weak in flavor strength. Yet it has a few flavors in it’s favor. If you are into a mild, malty ale. Tastier than Bud.

Pours a clear light amber, slightly carbonated but no head. Aroma is barely present with slight touches of bread and fruit. Flavor is decent but not great, has some touches of bread and white grapes. fades quickly, but smoothly.

12 oz bottle from Kroger from notes. Pours a clear amber color with a small off white head. The aroma is barely noticeable save for light bready character and a splash of honey. The flavor has bready malts, sweet corn, mild honey, grass, just not much to enjoy.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Poured into a pint glass.
3.5 A: Clear medium orange color. Two fingers of frothy white head. Retention is about average and a short ring of lacing is left.
2.75 S: Grainy with some toastiness. Some sweetness underneath that prevents this from being clean.
2.5 T: Again grainy and toasty. The sweetness found in the nose is way more powerful than in the taste. It’s like a sickly corny sweetness that makes this beer hard to drink.
2.75 M: Lighter body. Good moderate carbonation. Light creaminess without much smoothness.
2.5 D: Not a good beer. Nothing else really to say.

Disgusting, I was half in the bag and I still couldn’t stomach this wretched brew. It had a sever case of skunkiness with an awful after taste. The best part was the appearance, everything else was horrid. Avoid at all costs

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Fred Meyer. Medium copper in color. Nose is fairly sweet with a bit of maltiness and a little spiciness. Not much in the way of hop aromas. Bready and earthy. Some sweetness, which is probably the honey. Malts and sweetness dominate. Hop character is virtually non-existent.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Clear amber pour - kind of like a darker apple juice. Small foamy head. Sweet malt, a very mild fruity note behind it all. But not good. Not at all.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: Pours out a crystal clear appearance, that of a shiny, new penny. No appreciable head formation, though.
Smell: A meager pale maltiness, scantly bready with a thin layer of blonde caramel and cooked apples.
Taste: Sweetish, initially, with a blend of honey and light caramel, giving you a sugary start. Touch of (baked) apple. Bready, pale malts. Near nil hop character or bitterness. Drying with a bit of the yeast on the finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-low carbonation.
Overall: Definitely lacking character, here. It could have benefited from a bit more crispness and a bit less sweetness.
