2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, bought @ METRO, Kolding.
Pours clear golden with a nice, creamy, off-white head. Fine, light lacings. Aroma is rather grainy, light hay and some sweet, unfermented malts. Light carbonation, fine dry mouthfeel. Flavour is light sugary, bready malts. The finish is fine and hoppy with grass, hay and a little pine. Still too sweet, though.

bought 17oct. 2008 el corte ingles, palma, rated mar 31 2009. best before 3-jun-2009.
clear yellow, small thick white head.
hoppy, but also a bit earthy aroma.
flavor is a bit alcoholic, sweet and dark caramelly. reminds me of a grolsch i once tasted that was few months after best before date. ends sweet. i’ll have to rerate a fresh sample, as this bottleed one was not tasting good, i think it aged badly or have had too much heat at some point.

Bottled: Golden coloured. Clear. Off white dense and lasting head. Malty and light hoppy aroma. Flavour is full, malty, light hoppy and light fruity. Has a light chocolate note. I vague bitter and smooth in the end. Nothing special.

I thought it was a tasty lager. The smell was actually the best component, floral with some nice fruitiness.

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.
