2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear copper - moderate lace - nose of toasted grain, honey, a fair amount of buttery diacetyl, slight metallic character - moderate carbonation - fairly nice texture, actually - flavor is medicinal and fairly bitter up front - sweet caramel in the middle, along with mild diacetyl - finish is toasty, with lingering buttery notes - a bit overly bitter on the tail end - pretty much the only decent thing is the texture.

Bottle. Amber pour with white foamy head. Smells of sweet malts. Tastes very malty with slight hops. Aftertaste of cereal. Not awful but not great.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
When I first spotted this on the shelves I looked over the bottle. Said brewed by, Band of Brewers Co., Ft. Worth, TX and Trenton, OH. When I come to this web site it shows Coors... ??? Wow way to hide the real info on a bottle. Brewer aside, this beer is pretty good. Has a slight caramel/toasted flavor that I found to be refreshing and setting itself as different than the run of the mill lager. First time I have had a Vienna style so couldn’t say how it good it is against others but this was good enough that I will most likely buy more when it goes on sale.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Appearance: clear gold, with some slightly amber highlights (I guess), and a short fizzy near white head with no lacing. Aroma: light caramel, toast, and grass. Taste: slight taste of honey, graham cracker, and mop water. Finish: surprisingly nice, with a toasty, sweetish bread note lingering for awhile. Notes: Other than the finish, this beer was swill. I’m more annoyed at the way this is marketed as a ’craft’ beer. Nowhere on the label is there any hint that this is a Coors product, so at first glance you’d think it was from a small brewery called "Band of Brewers". My sensibilities, they are offended.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bright yellow, big head. Corn and malt nose. Typical Marco malt corn swill taste, but at least an non offensive finish.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear copper with a nice white head. Mild aroma of malt and caramel. Taste is malt, grain, caramel, and a touch of hops. Just OK.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Tastes more like a pilsner than an amber ale. Orange in appearance. Not heavy aroma. Malty finish with little flavor. Similar to Coors

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Copper colored beer with a white head. Really bland and watery aroma. Some bread, maybe a bit of toast, and a fair amount of grass. Light yeast, hints of metal, and a lot of "meh". The flavor is similarly boring. Watery and sweet. Bread, grain, and a touch of toast. Grassy hops, minimal bitterness, a touch of metal, and some yeast.
