3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle brought back from the brewpub in Prague.
Pours a hazed caramel color with a small white head. Aroma is Saaz hops, caramel, malt, fruits. Flavor is Saaz Bitterness, Caramel, Fruits, a light sourness, oak, grass. Not sure if the sourness was intentional or not but it wasn’t a bad feature. Good brew.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
At the brewery restaurant, bottle. Poured a small slightly off white persistent head and a nice amber-red body. Sweetish buttery malty nose, almost perfumey. Very nice flowery-fruity(orange), slightly soapy malt halted abruptly by a sharp herbal hop flavour that goes into the aftertaste. Soft, remarkably pleasant and a great Vienna.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
It is a deep Amber color, with a very small head, quickly fading. Rich, nutty, malty, bitter-sweet aroma. Spicy and nutty, slightly sweet, with caramel, raisins. Very aromatic. It’s really nice. The flavor is nice as well. It has a very big flavor, very full of malt. It’s sweet but not overly so. It’s relatively light on the hops, but they are there. Tastes like dried fruit, caramel. It’s relatively light on carbonation, and heavy bodied. There’s a touch of sour flavor, just a touch. It seems to balance it nicely. It has a decent bitter finish, leaving a kind of bitter, dry aftertaste that lingers on. This is a fantastic beer.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sample at the Eurostash tasting on 04/30/09: Bottle from the brewpub. This beer is a hazy orange color with a medium thin and creamy white head that dissipates steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Tart fruit aroma with bits of earthy malt. Medium body with flavors of nearly sour fruit, pale malt and a metallic tinge. The finish is tart fruit that lingers awhile. Considering this is a Vienna I am assuming the bottle was past its prime. Will have to revisit at some point.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled at Dogbrick’s Eurostash tasting on 4.30.09. Cloudy amber pour with a medium beige head. Tart aroma with yeast, malt and metal. Crisp and sour flavor with a bit of fruit. Judging by the other ratings I’m guessing this shouldn’t have a sour flavor, but hell, it didn’t taste bad. They should change the name to "wild lager" on the bad bottles and charge five times as much for them.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Huge offwhite lasting head. Amber body. Aroma of dried fruit and malts with milky caramel notes. Hard to work out against a background of cigarette smoke, but think I did it. Dry-sweetish honey and dried fruit taste with resiny straw and earth notes. Soft, mild mouthfeel. Fullish body. Dry wooden resiny grassy aftertaste with chalky notes. Grassy caramel taste lingers for a long time. Excellent! (0.33l bottle at U Medviku.)
