Pours bright bronze in color with a fair amount of head. The aroma is bread and butter and slight spice. The flavor is rich and slightly sweet before a hoppy tingle hits in the finish. Great Lakes is proving to me that my theory that I don’t like lager is BS.

Sharp, copper-red body with dense tan head. Roasted malts and baking spices; cinnamon and nutmeg. Sweet caramel and bready yeast taste. Warm, nutty toffee notes. Very pleasing, creamy mouthfeel. Nice, crisp finish.

Poured from the tap into a pint glass. The appearance is a beautiful reddish amber color with a small white head. The aroma is a full on assault of malt and hops with some spice, very good. The taste is caramel malt with some fruit. I believe this is the best Vienna Lager I have ever had.

Remember when Yuengling was the cool amber lager to drink? Remember when it fell off a cliff? Eliot Ness is on top of that cliff now and isn’t going to fall off of it. It’s a beautiful amber color (duh) and is as smooth as it is refreshing.

Good maltiness, but a little bitter. Not sure I'd get this again. ---Rated via BeerBuddy for iPhone.

Sampled at GABF 2015. In the tasting glass was red amber. Off-White head. Nose of caramel malts and maybe something like nuts. Medium body. Very smooth mouth feel. Flavor is malty. Not much finish. Nothing wrong here. but not exciting. Very drinkable however.

Not too much aroma, maybe caramel. Taste is caramel malts, berries, some light peppery rye spices, and light grassy hops.
