12 oz. bottle poured to a Czech-pils glass showing a clear, coppery amber color, frothy, cream toned head foam, and wavy cling to the lacing. The aroma was smooth, lightly toasted & sweet malt, light grain, with a touch of caramel & vanilla? The flavor was similar, adding moderate hop bitterness, a light to medium body, mild dryness, and a bit of lingering alcohol warmth to complement the decent malt character.

Light Copper, Good Head And Lots Of Lacing. First impression - watery. Barely noticeable hops, malt. While nothing fancy it is rather pleasant and enjoyable. Easy to drink. Good.

Pour a copper light red color with no appreciable head. Nose is nothing but grainy and metallic, a lager of course !Nothing but a tasteless and flvorless brew, but I am a lager hater, still trying to develop a taste for these flavorless, boring beers. All I can say is more HOPS. But it will rate it keeping in ming it is what it is..........A LAGER ! Quaff Score 4 / 10

Pours copper with a small beige head and aroma of roasted malt and caramel. Taste is light, of toasted malt, grains, caramel, and bread notes with a medium finish. Light and not much flavor, but then again it’s a lager

Kopparfärgad öl med ett smutsvitt skum. Doften är ganska söt med inslag av nötter. Även smaken är söt, för söt för mig. Dragning åt mörkt socker och torkad frukt.

Not much of an aroma but pleasantly surprising taste. Full-bodied warming beer. Great beer to enjoy in front of a fireplace.

sawbuck (315) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - JAN 19, 2013
Aroma of sweet caramel. Crystal clear, amber in color thin head. Slightly toffe like caramel intitial bite, mellows a bit with some sweetness. Finishes with slight bitterness and a not so smooth stale flavor. Not sure why a vienna is used as a winter seasonal...Vienna is one of my favorite styles...I’ve just had better versions.
