3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice lighter red color. Agree with Wabash, has maltiness and a fairly light flavor. Definitely better than most other Viennas out there. Just enough hops to keep it interesting.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A nice sweet malty aroma complements a good, medium copper appearance in this vienna. Flavor is light, but not too light, with a nice sweetness that is well balanced by a light/medium hop bitterness. A nice vienna!

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A redish copper color with little head or lacing. It had a little sweet taste with a citrus aroma. It was an OK light beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle pours a redish amber color with very little head and very little lace. The aroma is malty and mild hops. The flavor is very malty, with a dry finish and a fair body. Overall, I'm pleased with it.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Slight haze orange color with a small white head. Surprizing citrus aroma first with the malt following. Mainly a citrus taste that I found kind of weak. Decent session beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This a very nice representation of a Vienna style and at a nice price to boot. Head fades somewhat fast(perhaps my glass?) malt aroma is very evident after pour. Color is copper and very clear. Although there was some residual yeast in the bottle. Nice hops flavor that is not at all obtrusive to the malt. Caramel notes are present and linger in the finish. Nice job !

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Very tasty!!! This beer re-confirms why I love Viennas so darn much! The malt is deliciously assertive - with a honeyish sweetness that's to die for. In addition, the hops aren't forgotten, but they're in the background. Just enough to properly augment things, but they disappear quickly and don't linger. My lone complaint is the inability to get a head out of it! Otherwise, bravo.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2005 Decent clean aroma not found in other Schell products. Beautiful copper-red color. Small head with fine bubbles and clingy lacing. Sweet malt flavor, lively carbonation, light mouthfeel, light tasty hop finish. Slightly dry,acidic finish. Extremely drinkable and good with food. Thanks to Schell for making this a year-round offering.
