3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Yes no winter beer this is in anyway. Pours clear amber with basically no head. Butterscotch flavor with caramel sweetness. Sweet crystal malts all the way with a touch of roasted malts in the aftertaste and some biscuit malts for crispness. Very oktoberfest like and would’ve been more suitable for that season.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Rated 2/6/07: I, like some of the others here got excited about finding this bottle being labeled as a "winter" brew, and then experienced sadness when I found out it was only a Vienna Lager......but after drinking this I am a happy man. Maybe the mood was just right but this one really hit the mark tonight. Nothing unrealistic in relation to the style just a pleasant example. Sweet aroma, very bready/biscuity with a hint of stinging sour fruit. Beautiful light amber pour with a frothy head and a nice ring of lacing at the top. Sharp mouthfeel, clean and simple. Nice toasted flavor mixed in with an ample helping of sweet malt. Lightly hopped supplying a quick burst of bitterness. Doesn’t excel in any category but overall I give it a deserving 8 for sheer enjoyment.

UPDATED: AUG 27, 2007 This beer was far more of a bock than a Vienna to me. Sampled from a 16.9 oz brown bottle this beer poured a bronze color with a small yellow-tan head. The aroma was sweet, malty, tangy and lightly vegetal. The flavor was sweet, rich, tangy with a vegetal element and light molasses and fruity hops.

This reddish amber beer poured with a medium off-white head that dissipated fairly quickly. There is a pleasant caramel malt flavor with a short bitter hop finish snd a longer lasting fruit and malt aftertaste. The mouthfeel is lively and carbonated. Very refreshing.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear, deep amber appearance with a large, off white head and modest lacing. Sweet, bready, caramel malt aroma. Rich, roasted malt taste with low keyed hoppiness, bittersweet chocolate and toffee. Turns a little bit more bitter, along with a hint of sourness, in the aftertaste. Smooth, medium-to-full bodied, softly carbonated mouthfeel. Lingering, long lasting finish.

Bottle. Pours pale copper with a small white head. Not much aroma - some rye bread. Medium carbonation. Flavour is very malty and sweet. Finishes nice and round - killing off some of the malty sweetness (which is nice!).
