3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Oct. 2007 - Orange brown pour with almost no head or lacing. Chunky yeasties in the bottom. Flavor was light caramel, sweet with a bitter/sour finish. There were also some notable citrus aspects, sweet overripe grapefruit. Very disappointing from a brewer that I love their other offerings....

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
This brew is courtesy of my Bro, FootBalm.Nice amber/orange color,small white head that faded slowly and left a little lace in the center.Malty sweetish aroma with a light hop presence and a hint of caramel.Kind of flat on the flavor Malty taste with a slight caramel in there and the hops come through decent enough towards the middle and end with just a slight bitterness.As the brew warms up it gets a little better but not much,with just a little more caramel and hops showing through.Not the greatest brew but definately worth trying again.I think this is a brew that might grow on you after a few.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Hazy Apple Juice colored liquid. Little head. Nose of sweet hops. Flavot is a sweet and mediumly malty. NO tang. Flavor is mellow and smooth. Body is unimpressive. Finishes cleanly.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle from Trooper11 - thanks Adam! Pours a clear light amber with a quick diminishing white head. Sweet toasty grain nose, light toffee. Sweet malty flavor, light toffee and caramel. Mildly herbal bitter finish. A solid Vienna - not sure why this is rated so low?

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle sampled with Beerded_one. Pours hazy copper with a thin white sparce head. Aroma of caramel, citrus, and toast. The flavor is thin, weak, sweet, bitter, and citrusy. Watery body.

Bottle. Ugh! This was terrible. Not well balanced with a terrible granny smith apple taste to it.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle: Clear gold color with a extremely quickly diminishing head. Corny and malty sweet aroma. It has an astringent taste with honey that wishes I had the Thirsty Dog Siberian Night. Not that good -- but thanks anyway, BuckeyeBoy.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear gold with a tiny head and zero lacing. Aroma did not contribute to the overall enjoyment; malts, maybe. Smooth, sweet flavor that worked well in washing down some pizza, but not something I would break out to impress friends or family. Cute pooch on the label, though.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottle from Tully’s) Seems kind of uninspired...Pours slightly hazy slightly orange golden with three fingers of off white head. Head forms some globs on surface after receding. Aroma initially bready but when head recedes there’s only a very light trace of caramel and perhaps some sour. Mouthfeel a little rough, lightly prickly, medium-body. No real lacing. Flavor is kind of weakly malty with a hint of sour citrus. Lightly bitter finish. Really seems more like a helles than a Vienna. This could be an older bottle based on the overall lackluster flavor, globs on the surface and light sour notes.
