1.6/5  rDev -22%
look: 3.5 | smell: 1 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 1.5

The smell is light. Some dry chemical flavours. Some sour flavours, some dough/flour. Hints of chloride.

The colour is warm brown (35 EBC), the liquid clear. The two finger head is pale beige, airy and uneven. Some lacing occurs.

The taste is... unfermented and reminds more of something like Supermalt than a beer. Some caramel, lots of dough and flour. Sour chemical-yeasty notes, a very fragile metallic bitterness. The short and weak aftertaste is sweet with some malt flavoured toffee-like flavours.

The carbonation is medium, the bubbles small. The liquid is light.

It is hard to make a decent Vienna Lager at 2.2%. This one fails miserably.

1.8/5  rDev -12.2%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 1.5

A dark amber clear beer, an off-white head that recedes quickly but leaves lacing on the glass.

A sweet aroma of candied sugar, dried raisins. Malty notes and a metallic finish.

A sweet bland brew, toffee, dried fruits. A lack of sour notes. Very short bitter touch at the end.

Rather soda-like feeling, some dryness at the end.

You can't expect much of a Vienna Lager at 2.2% ABV, but I miss some hop anyway.
