Bottle. Grainy malt aroma - lightly sweet. Amber color with minute head. Rather weak flavor - mildly sour malt intially with sweetness coming out in the middle and the merest hint of hops at the end. A good Vienna but nothing to set it apart.

Heh, I was right it is Vienna lager, nice light red tone, and nice thick white head. I found that his beer got some light taste of peanuts, nice selection of malt, gentle mixed with hops.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2013 Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is dark yellow. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain, cookie), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers, apricot), with a light note of honey. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. A touch on the sweet side, and the aroma is a bit docile, but I have to admit it’s quite delightful...if the nose were more assertive and the finish more snappy, this could be a 4+ brew. And maybe when it’s very fresh it is indeed at that level.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: Pours a golden amber color with a very light head and nearly no lacing. The nose is slightly sweet and toasty with some light biscuit and plenty of caramelized sugars. The flavor is doughy with some rye bread and more sugars. A thinner body and a little more zest than the Winter Traum but generally the same beer. Odd. The finish is a touch roasty, some honey and grassy hops touch and go rather abruptly but that’s about all.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle and served in a pilsener glass: Deep golden hue with a lasting frothy head and left very nice lace upon the glass. The aroma has notes of grassy and herbal hops, vienna and pale malts, leafy, and some apple and pear esters. The taste is a tad sweeter (hint of honey) than the nose let on but hardly cloy. Some light handed hop bitterness adds balance. As Jordan just stated, there appears to a hint of rye bread towards the finish. The mouth feel is lively but mostly soft, dry finish and a touch chalky. Not too shabby and I bet it would even be better on tap. An easy way to start a Sunday.
