2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
it is certainly amber colored...clear, with a small tannish head.
strangely fruity aroma...akin to fermented oj and apple juice...mixed with grain and sweet-less brown sugar.
the flavor is the same but it has an odd sourness which mixes with malt notes...not sure if i can like this enough to finish it...
Pour on tap at the brewery, dark reddish pour with slightly off white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, bread, some spice into a bit of watery grain, slight yeasty notes into a bit of grass. Taste was a mix of caramel, toffee, bread, toast into a bit of yeast, slight earth, slight green apple, finishing slightly dry. slowrunner77 (12895) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 23, 2014
"No longer has the same label (or Ornery in the name). It should :) Didn’t care for this one in any way. Light bodied. Unpleasant vegetal aroma and flavor. Tasted off, but not necessarily spoiled. Just not good. Blech." jrodooo5 (1720) - DOVER, Delaware, USA - MAY 19, 2014
Not awful. Ok pour but not much of an aroma. It’s an amber what can i say? Fairly smooth - little bitterness in the end. Ehh alexsdad06 (10821) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - MAY 4, 2014
12 oz bottle from Party Source from notes. Pours a clear amber color with a small, fizzy, off white head. The aroma and flavor is bready malts with light caramel, mild floral hops, doughy yeast with light notes of apples and a slight metallic finish. Light bodied. Not much to get excited about here.

Reviewed from notes.
The appearance had a light red body with a two and half finger head. Some carbonation is seen rising.
The smell had some light caramel, malts, slight subdued weird "cherry" (I wonder where that is coming from).
The taste had a sweet combination through previously mentioned flavors.
On the palate, it sat at/about a light to medium, sessionable. Carbonation is slightly felt.
Overall, this is a standard Vienna Lager other than the smell. Ill come back to when I find it fresher.

Pours a slightly hazy amber with a thin creamy tan head. Nice lacing. Aroma is slight malt and toast. Flavor is somewhat bland and a bit overly bitter. Very dry. Medium bodied. Decent beer. kaser (6382) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 17, 2014

Backlog, from notes. Bottle bought @ the brewpub in Phoenix, AZ, enjoyed 13 June 2001 in the Gila National Forest. Amber color, caramel and malts in the aroma, mild sweet flavor. Decent, but not memorable.
