2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle from beer rep party leftover stash. Boring dulled orange, filtered, weird factory alternate sized carbonation bubbles rising to the oily surface. Sweet and completely unimpressive aroma, factory putrid alcohol stains. A Vienna is a beer they could clearly conquer, but they dumb it down, and cheap it out..and this is what you get.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
A half finger of head on a clear, medium straw colored body.
The smell is pleasant. Dry grain mostly, with a little of that cotton candy aroma that comes from using rice.
A fairly flavorful lager with a sweet foundation. The bitterness is subdued, which results in a smooth and easy to drink beer.
A crisp and fizzy texture. The high carbonation is a detraction.
A descent drink.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Mild lager with a decent level of gravity at 5.3%. Brewed by Coors Co, so I wasn’t expecting much. The finish is nice, and it’s a fair session beer at the end of your night after a bunch of rich stuff.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
(12oz bottle) Pour is light amber, very creamy and lasting head, but the head breaks up into an odd cloud like pattern after some time. Nose of biscuit, lager yeast, plastic, nothing too offensive, nothing too great. Taste is earthy, caramel malt, lager style hops. Medium carbonation, palate linger is biscuit/crackery. Not my style, but reminds me a bit of Sam Adams Boston Lager, which is good because they’re in the same style.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pretty damn pedestrian. Has a bit more depth than the typical macro lager but that’s not saying much.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JAN 31, 2014 Pours clear amber with a frothy off white head that lingers around. Aroma of pear and yeast with some malt. Somewhat sweet spritzy taste on the first drink but it gets better towards the middle. I like this beer but it still has that macro taste to it. Not sure if they use corn or rice but I’m pretty sure it’s not 100% malted barley in the recipe. Nice clean crisp finish.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours clear orange amber with a slight off-white head. Bready aroma with some light noble hop. Med body. Flavor is bready, but it’s sort of like a drink of water towards the finish. There’s a very small amount of hop bitter, but not much.

amber, orange, lightly bitter, lightly sour, medium body, soft carbonation, did not like this at first, but after two either got better with warmth or got better due to taste buds numbing. a step above their regular offering, not greaqt, not bad. priced right.

bottle from mixed sixer that was naughty .. . pours a light amber .. mild head, not alot of lacing .. . very basic caramel and light sweetness .. . very light mouth, quite muddled but easy enough to put away the bottle .. but not recommended .. . . forget about the gelgamecks!?!
