3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Truly delicious beer; enjoyed a bottle (poured into a glass) for dessert at Quartino in Chicago. Itís a style I usually donít appreciate, but this was enjoyable start to finish and gave me a new appreciation for it. Sweet maltiness gives great flavor and is understated but rich; itís really smooth in the mouth.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hits all the hallmarks of the Vienna style. Lightly malt forward with muted earthy slightly metallic continental hops. Pours reddish brown with a small ring of beige head. Little in the way of aroma. Very clean throughout. Nice lingering pumpernickel toast finish.

Pours a dark clear amber, with a small tan head. Aroma is fruity hops, grains, with caramel and toffee malt. Flavor is semi sweet, with caramel and toffee, some grassy and fruity hops, and some yeast on the finish. It does have a somewhat metallic taste to it.

On tap at Black Rooster Pub. Inviting red body with slight, white head. Nose is malts, spices and caramel. Taste of caramel and wheat also, and some hops and floral notes. Actually really well done.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours lovely clear copper-amber with small off-white head.
Nose is bread and honey, hazelnut. Palate adds flowers, toffee, slight metal buzz. Finishes on mild sour note.
Much better with aeration and less chilled, while reasonable 6.1 percent ABV makes it sessionable.

Poured from a bottle. Pours a clear dark amber light brown with a medium white foamy head. Light semi-sweet aroma. Full mouth feel. Semi- sweet malt. No bitterness or harshness. Smooth finish. Nice caramel malt flavor with a smooth finish. Enjoyable but not so special to be great.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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 donít like lager is BS.

4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
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.
