A lot better than I expected, since I am not typically a fan of Vienna’s. Surprised me, I guess.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
New brew, not the ESB. A really good deep red lager. A brisk and bright lager with a hint of fruit and good hop bitterness that is well balanced. Smooth but a slight grape aftertaste. One of the better efforts at Upstream.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
[Tap] Ruby red pour and thin beige head. Sweet aroma is mainly toffee and toasted bread. Hazelnut, caramel, sweet grains and dry toffee in the taste. Better than expected mouthfeel, with a rich and creamy palate. Light citrus hop finish. A pretty tasty beer.
