3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
The aroma is moderately malty with notes of clover and yeast.
A crystal clear, golden beer with a medium-sized, fizzy white head. Slowly, but fully diminishing with decent lacing.
A nice moderately malty and slightly pungent flavor up front. A hint of clover honey on the backside. Medium-bodied with an oily mouthfeel. Fizzy carbonation. A short, crisp, clean, mostly dry finish with a hint of clover at the far end of the aftertaste. I might be mistaken, but I think this is my first Vienna. Nice, but not completely sold on the style. I will definitely try another next summer on a hot, humid day.

Moderately orange colored with a thick shaving cream head--this was an excellent vienna. It has an even-tempered malt aroma with the tangy emergence of hops as it warms. The flavor reflects the smell with malt initially predominating and hops working their way to the palate. Well balance between malt and pungent hops. This beer is mild, yet flavorful--with a touch of citrus and should appeal to most everyone. Despite my unexceptional rating of it, this beer really has no detracting qualities--a nice brew.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Malty notes, fruit flowery aroma. Golden amber, frothy white head. Rich malt, good nutty flavour, and a hint of caramel. Well balanced, a darn good Vienna.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear golden copper, not much nose going on, a whiff of spice. There’s a little bit of peppery taste with a hint of malt behind it. Hops are hardly there at all. Leaves a little bit, but not much. Not as big a taste as I expected.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Low carbonation and golden-colored. Very mild. Not hoppy at all. Dangerously drinkable, yet not complex. Better as it warms!

Amber colour. Medium head. Malty aroma. Light bodied, somewhat roasty flavour but most of all; sweet, too sweet.

Quite malty with some roasted qualities. Uncomplex aroma of caramel and light roasted barley. Acceptable mouthfeel. Clear bronze color with a minimal head. Unremarkable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden color smelling of malt. Pours a nice foamy head. Not much hop taste to even things out. Creamy body which makes it very easy to drink. OK nothing really special.
