An acceptable Vienna, although somewhat light on the nose, a mild & sweet bready malt. Thin for the style, it has a light, toasty caramel malt flavor with a hint of earthy hops. Watery finish, although it does look nice, a pale orange with an initially creamy white head. Glad I could buy it as a single.

Light amber color. Small to no head. Aroma is caramel and sweet. A medium bodied amber/Vienna. Malts are caramel and sweet. Slightly spicy hops. Smooth tasting. A little thin tasting and perhaps a touch too sweet. Drinkable, but there is not a lot of flavor going on here. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is sweet.

The body is a medium oramge and has a thick slightly yellow colored head. The aroma had some sweet pancakes along with some caramel. This is sweet smelling, even for the style. The taste has some light caramel along with oced tea. There is also a bit of carrots in the finish. A nice light brew. This is a little thin and weak for the style, but good for summer time.

PPRBSG 2010. 12 oz bottle. Pours a nice clear medium woody amber with a nice lasting head. Aroma is nutty toasty, caramel and light herbal hops. Flavor is mineral, fairly crisp, caramel malts, vienna, munich, toast and light grassy hops in the end. Clean and easy drinking- fairly well made. Not bad.

Reviewed from notes. Pours a light copper color with a bit of an off white head that has a bit of staying power but then does not leave behind too much lacing. Served into a pilsner glass. The nose is light with some bread and a bit of caramel malt. Not too much involved. Maybe a bit of yeasty dough. Light to medium mouthfeel with decent carbonation. Average drinkability--nothing wrong with it but nothing good about it either. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 10-23-2010

decaturstevo (4991) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - MAY 13, 2009
Aroma of rich caramelly malt with just a hint of earthy hops. A copper pour with very light white head and lace. Sweet malty flavor a hint of abv and a very subtle bitter. A bit overly carbonated for me. But pretty nice.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 27, 2007
Copper color with a fizzy sounding diminishing light beige head. Aromas of grain, toasted malt, bubblegum and sorghum. A touch too sweet for me. Fairly thin and fizzy in feel as well. Light pale malt start with a somewhat grassy middle. Finish brings some welcome toasted malt that helps to rescue this one. Seems to do better with some time in the glass. Longer linger with some nice mellow malt after-tones. This one finishes a lot better than it starts.

Strykzone (4903) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - NOV 15, 2008
Tea color with a small head that fades quickly. Aroma is sugary malt and caramel. Flavor is very earthy and bitter. It is like over cooked caramel. More hops than expected. Light pepper spice notes.

12 oz bottle, Trader Joe’s Framingham MA. Pours a clear copper body under a very minimal thin covering of head that disappeared quickly. The aroma is more corn and DMS than malt unfortunately. Very grainy and husky with a touch of garbage juice. The flavor is very mild at first, but the finish is just all corn, a little butterscotch, and quite sweet. Very light bitterness on the finish late. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with a little too much stickiness. Moderate fizzy carbonation. Overall, this was pretty much a train wreck. Not worth the 92 cents that I paid for it.
