3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A brew with clear high and low points. Highs? The lovely appearance, with a nice medium copper color and off white head. The aroma, with a nice sweetness and some alcohol notes. Lows? The flavor, sadly. It’s thin and lacks much depth. A bit of malt and caramel sweetness, but it can’t live up to the aroma...not even close, really.

Retired? Guess it’s a good thing I found a bottle when I did!
Aroma is strong, malty and fruity. It pours a clear golden amber with a thick off-white head that does not stick around too long. Flavor does not quite match the aroma, being malty with a hint of fruit and a touch of hops but mostly unremarkable; still, it satisfies. Texture is smooth and tingly, rather typical.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle Pours a hazy amber with an off white head. The head leaves quickly. Lacing is okay. Aroma is malty. Mostly caramel and grass. Has an okay cabonation. The mouthfeel is alright. Theflavor is spicy grass. Which really works for tis beer. Has a good malty endiing. Has a medium body. A thickier texture. The finish is good with a good aftertaste. Not a bad beer from a brewer who makes good beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle. Pours pretty hazy, light golden color with a very small white head with poor retention. Aroma shows fresh barley, cracker, intensely malty. Very grainy, like barley husks. No hops to be found. Flavor is dry, malty, very low bitterness. Tastes the same as it smelled, crackers and barley. Could use a tad more hops. This is all right, not exactly what I think of when I think of Viennas though.

POured a light straw yellow color with a white head. Aroma was grassy some caramel and thats about it. Flavor was much the same, really bland, some hints of hop bitterness detected as well.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. botle. Pours a hazy dark golden/light amber color with a small off white head. There is some sediment that comes with the pour. The aroma is light caramel, toasted bread, and a hint of bitterness. The flavor has caramel malt, honey sweetness, a light amount of fruit, and some bitterness in the finish. Medium bodied at best, slightly watery and thin. Not bad, maybe better than I expected.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light haze on this copper brew. Sweet caramel malt, light grass, toasty malts, and some floral as well in the aroma. Full bodied and smooth. Nice toasted malt, caramel, and some earth/floral hops in the flavor. Refreshing and flavorful- this brew is well underrated.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I received some of this as a Christmas present. and Just re-unearthed from the unused garage fridge...I fear spoiled beer.
The pour is a cloudy orange-ish color, with a small fast dissipating white head. The pour has a pretty good number of bubbles raising up from the glass. the Aroma is sweet mild hops with some fruity overtones. The flavor is bitter, and earthy. Lighter body. An interesting beer. I would like to try it on tap somewhere.
