COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This all malt, Vienna-style lager is a real crowd pleaser! Roasted malts and imported hops give it a deliciously smooth malt taste backed by a light hop finish. Perfect for any occasion.

UPDATED: APR 30, 2003 I have to re-rate slightly since the first bottle, I've become a fan of this stuff. The first sip was dissappointing, but as I drank the glass, the flavor actually seemed to improve. It poured a light brown with little head that dissappeared quickly, but leving a creamy lacing throughout the glass. Could have more carbonation. The mouth feel was a bit weak, but the flavor wasn't bad at all. I bought this in a Sampler Pack, which comes with 6 different beers, including the current seasonal brew. So far I may buy the Sampler again. At least I get some variety, until I decide which ones I'd buy a sixer or 12 pack of. If you're curious about Schells brews, This is the way to go for a first time. So far, I've got no regrets for goin with the sampler pack.

Amber with a quickly dimminished light cream head. Mild malt and hops aroma. Touch of anise in the flavor and finish. Watery finish feel leaves you wanting more. Maybe not more of this but something more.

Roasted Malt aroma. Small, white, mostly diminishing head. Amber body. Quite malty in the taste, but not overbearingly so, and in keeping with the Vienna style. Very light bitterness. Not a special brew and it didn't change my luke warm impression of the Schell line of beers. They do a fine job of brewing contract beers, but of course, that's with somebody else's recipe. Good luck, however, getting any real information out of them on their contract brews.

proc (342) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - DEC 7, 2002
While not a powerhouse, flavor-wise, this is a decent version of a vienna-style lager. It pours out to a reddish-brown in the glass with light aroma of malt. Taste is that of malt with a light caramel and toffee also present. Not as flavorful as Sam Adams offering and not as good as the Great Lakes Brewing version. However, it is a good beer and worthy of drinking on occasion.

The first beer I have ever opened, sipped for the first time, and exclaimed, "Wow!" Tastes like a very light guinness.

Simple, sweet, straighforward malty goodness in the taste but something like the cheapness of a Killians in the body, as if it were artificially augmented or airbrushed into fullness.

Malty, Malt, Malt, Malt. Could stand to be hopped up a little to even things out. I liked it, but then it was beer what more can I say. Doubt I will buy it again.
