Bottle. Ruby-amber with a short tan head. Aoma is caramel, sweet malt, spicy hops and earthy hops. Sweet malt and caramel dominate the favors with a spicy hoppiness and soft earthy notes. There’s also a mild citrus profile to this. Body is medium with a smooth, creamy carbonation. Ends with more caramel, sweet, chewy malt, spicy hops, soft citrus and mild earthiness. Very drinkable session beer!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A celbration beer that has pretty much everything. The color is a reddish copper brew with a clear hue and a a thick pillow head. The lacing is both thick and lasting. The flavor is a minty sweet caramel, almost candy sweet finish. An excellent drinking brew and a great accompanyment to a potroast or pork roast dinner. I enjoyed this brew.

fruity and creamy with flavor like a muscatel or a port. butterscotch and some sweetness that pairs well with raspy carbonation and a hop character seemingly balanced perfectly between grapefruit and pine. thats where that grape character is usually evident. satisfying.

Stubby bottle. Rating #56. Clear dark amber color with a dirty white head. Nice hop nose, light citrus and a bit of sweet malts. Nice little bitterness up front with a little more citrus hops and caramel sweetness. Dry finish and super drinkable, tasty stuff. (2062)

Poured a pretty red colour, darker then most Viennas in my experience. Nice white head. Iquite enjoyed this, though at 6.2%, I don’t know how sessionable it would be.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz stubby- Pours dark brown orange with a thin head. The aroma is caramel malts, mildly spicy hops, fairly muted. The taste is caramel malts, rye bread, dry and mildly bitter hops, I would say definitely more dry than bitter. Body is medium to low, carbonation is medium. Overall decent, but something I would never buy.
