3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Medium amber color, small head. Aroma is malty and appley fruity. A medium bodied Vienna. Malts are mild yet flavorful. Hops are also mild. Mild tasting beer, yet it does have some flavor to it. I do wonder how you can get ANY flavor out of a beer that’s limited to 4% alcohol. Nothing really good or bad to say about this beer. Drinkable but nothing special. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean. Aftertaste is malty.

I say this beer lands on the ale side. Malty aromas. Somewhat sweet to dry in the taste. Very little presense of hops. Not too bitter or dry in the aftertaste. Not a bad beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear, amber/copper color, decent ring of beige foam above, assuredly slimming down to a miniscule size.
Aroma: Very malty, coppery, plentiful yeast in the nose, with a definite coppery feel, and a hint of fruit.
Taste: very mild, with little hop presence, and toffee-ish malt tones. Mouthfeel is negligible, and the body is a little less than medium. Nothing wrong with that, though, it’s par for course for an amber lager. Flavor isn’t as full as I’d like, however, and points are lost there.
but it is tasty, if a bit too tinny, and extra-drinkable to be sure. For the style, it’s above average, but no better.

Bottle. Pours a clear dark amber/orange with a small white head. Aroma of toasted malts. Very toasted! Flavor is also quite toasted--lots of bread and cracker malts. Slight hints of sweet malt as well. Light bodied, perhaps a little too light/weak. Decent but nothing I’d seek out again.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear, deep amber appearance with a small beige head and decent lacing. Muted, slightly vegetal, aroma saved by caramel in the background. Grainy flavors up front; turned sweet (as in honey and caramel) before getting to the aftertaste, where the sweetness lingered. Light-to-medium bodied mouthfeel, modestly hopped, with a short lived finish.

Bottle... Poured reddish-brown with a nice forming head. Nutty, toasted malty aroma. Quite malty. Easy drinking. Nutty, toasted grains, a mild hop spice for balance, and sweetness with cereal-grain, bready finish.

Clear redish brown thick head that diminishes quick. Mild carbonation. Smells malty Carmely and sweet little earthiness. Very light and easy to drink. Little sticky on the tounge. Not a bad beer on the back porch in the heat.
