2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I found this one in a huge bin at Kroger like it was one of the cheap dvd bins that are in stores but only cheap beer...whatever. Pours clear amber and sports quite the large head and fades to a thick layer of icing. Nose is some stale caramels, bread, sweet dough, toasted malts, a touch of floral malts. Flavor is bready, malty, toasted malts, some more of the staling sticky caramel. Medium full body and medium sweet full finish. Bitterness is low to medium low. I could see this being on ok beer if it were not stacked up in a warm bin at kroger.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
16 oz can , $1 at Krogers, served in a pint glass.
Pours clear amber with lots of visible carbonation and a large head that soon reduces to a durable top coat.
Aroma: Grassy/earthy hops with a metallic edge over some bready malts. Not bad but not appealing. The flavor is better. Mildly bitter.
Feel: initially over carbonated, this soon burns off leaving a decent feel with a medium-light body.
O: thirst-quenching lawnmower beer,

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Wal Mart: Poured a dark golden honey color with a soft pillow of foam head on top. As for the aroma, a moderate balance between semi sweet malts and bitter hops meet and almost form an aroma similar to an English ESB. The flavor was subdued with minor notes of caramel like malts and no substance of hops or yeast to speak of. Typical of any Amber but to classify this beer style as Vienna is shameful, is Coors behind this?

Pours a copper color with a white head. Nose is light. Palate is light medium body with toasty malt and bitter lingering aftertaste. Maybe ahead of Dos
Eqqus Amber and behind Brooklyn lagers.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
5oz taster on tap during Cincinnati Beer Fest 2013. Totally clear amber orange color. Minimal off-white head. Lighter body. Sharper, but moderate strength carbonation, lightly dry finish. Caramel malt, lightly toasty, some metallic. Moderate sweet, light bite, moderate bitter. Not a good macro lager by any stretch, very metallic, light on the flavor.

Draft to taster. Looks decent; gold though (not amber) with thin white head that dissipates into lacing. Smells of malt, biscuit, and lager yeast. Tastes like it smells, only weaker, with an average mouthfeel. Eh.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Amber with white head. No lacing. Aroma is grain, malt. Taste is sweet malts. Body is medium at best. Not much to say, though a very enjoyable beer.
