3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tarnished gold in color, with a small but stout head. Aromas of orange, lime and grapefruit with deeper notes of malt, grass, yeast, herbs, ginger, cloves, licorice and dark chocolate. Flavors are very balanced, but distinguished be dark and citrus fruits, spice, malt, hops and yeast, with low bitterness. Fairly carbonated but big mouthfeel, inviting you to swish it around before swallowing. A good all-around lager.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Mega transparent and magnifying orange with a copiously foamy, dense and expansive light orange tinted head. Copper, caramel and spicy toffee wafts join sapped twigs, honey & herbal baguettes, unrefined pecans and balsawood. Expressive caramel and a touch of buttery vanilla lead the flavor. Mild, spicy roll compliments a Werthers Original candy composure. Butter pecans and pralines keep the impressive display running while we register hints of brown sugar and sweet cornbread. Gentle carbonation lets the commendable sweetness play out. Otherwise, it’s medium-bodied and beautifully balanced, finishing with buttered kettle corn with some caramel drizzled over it. Easily on of the best Viennas around.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light copper, quickly fading small head. Aroma was mostly caramel, a tinge of lemongrass. Flavor matched. A bit watery, and the touch of sourness was unappealing. Malt driven flavors, but not ones that I enjoyed.
