Big bottle and a small bottle. Dark copper tinted amber with almost a finger of white-ish foam. They pack a lot of ingredients into some of these beers. Kind of a cedary woody malt scent. Lots of spice, caramel, nut, wood and biscuit with a lasting hop aftertaste. Pretty solid.

DrnkMcDermott (2748) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - FEB 12, 2011
Pint draft at Lemon Tree, Downers Grove. Nice smell, hint of fresh yeast over a light malt nose.Cloudy amber body with just a few bubbles feeding into a lacy, creamy head. Taste is very full. Richly malted with toasty, nearly caramel Vienna malt, crisp with just the right choice of mostly noble hops. Some unfiltered yeast comes out halfway through, and a deeper caramel note toward the end.

dumontn (529) - CHICAGO, Illinois, USA - JUN 28, 2011
Bottle pours a clear dark amber with good head retention. Aroma is heavy caramel malt and light woodsy hops, a very rich aroma. Taste is clean (not fruity) caramel, bread, spicy hops and a long herbal finish. Body is medium but creamy with average carbonation, and a bitter finish that is not quite dry. Overall, a tasty, rich malt-forward lager. Not the best Iíve had from Schmaltz, but definetly an awesome lager.

wlajwl (3549) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - APR 29, 2012
Aroma is caramel sweetness and a hint of tea. The flavor is caramel malts, a good hop punch and a dry, bitter finish. A little different for a Vienna, definitely more hops, pretty good.

degbert (1004) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUN 4, 2012
Bottle. Wow, this is dark, even for a Vienna -- almost reddish-brown with a definite chill haze. High head with noticeable lace. Nose is spice, apple, toast, yeast, and a darker, wine-line note. Amazing flavor -- itís still a lager, but damn it has depth and width and a long, elegant finish. This is lager at its best. Bravo.

joebrew (608) - Farewell Minny; Hello Puyallup, Washington, USA - AUG 8, 2007
Pours a rich golden with no head. Super biscuity malt with some honey and a light floral touch on the nose. Flavor is kinda muddled and confusing, but lends a sweet almost cotton candy, or honeysuckle type sweetness, with a nice floral hop finish.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 13, 2007
Poured a bronze-copper colored body with a chunky and frothy beige-white head. Nose of grains and floral hops. An all-around nice afternoon beer!

Highly filtered, with a big-bubbled, off-white head over a copper-colored body. Dark for a lager. Iíll start with my favorite part of this beer: the finish. It is very smooth and fruity. Crisp and clean. The flavor is mild but good. Very malty. It really does taste pretty much like a Czech-style lager. Good.

In the bomber bottle from Beertopia. Pours amber with a medium-sized thick fluffy ivory colored head. I think that this beer might make me realize what the term "Session Beer" really means! It has a mild aroma of flowery nectar water and subdued hops. This is smooth and easy to drink. The mild hop bitterness at the finish is mildly pine-like. Has a great palate and is perfectly hopped for such a medium bodied lager. The brilliance to this beer is that it does not over or under state anything. Yummy and worth drinking often.
