This is an awesome beer. Donít know why it is so short in the ratings. I have sampled an array of German beers and this is very distinct. Almost Belgian in influence. Like oak casts. Must be tried to be appreciated.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This is a nice, interesting vienna that actually seems to be crossed with a pilsner. It is lighter/golden amber with a medium off-white head that is long lasting and leaves some fairly good, thin lace. The aroma is sweetish, mildly caramelly and leaf-like malt and dough with pine and herb hops and a hint of sulphur; very nice. The taste is similar, a little earthy, carmale malt body with lots of herbal, grassy hop flavour; tingly, with a light, persistent bitterness that just dominates the sweetish body. It is lighter than many viennas, but has a lot more hop character than usual, reminiascent of pilsners, with great balance between the elements. It is very drinkable.

Sweet and spicy with a firm malty body. Crisp and well-balanced. All in all a very pleasant beer.

Pours a hazy copper colour with a massive, rich foamy head. Sweet, fruity malt aroma. A fine malty taste withsome caramel notes, mild hops and a kind of fruty finish. Very refreshing. Medium bodied and beautiful mouthfeel. I almost didnít want to swallow this stuff and keep that taste going on forever. A fine Vienna. Iíve got to get more of this!

Had an old bottle I guess a while ago and gave it a 3/5. Recently on tap at Deep Ellum and this beer damn near blew me away. .4 liter mug. Pours a bright clear coppery light amber with a massive fluffy lasting white cloudy head. Aroma is nicely sweet tons of Vienna and munch toasty fresh malts bready, adn a touch of light floral herbal hallertauer hops. Beautifully smooth full doughy fresh malt flavor, bready pils behind a nice fresh vienna lightly burnt toast, slight toffee, nuts and light floral and zesty hop notes towards the slightly bitter finish. Damn smooth and easy to drink- went great with my breakfast. Great beer, although i cant say this tasted like any other vienna in the world. More like a mix between a dunkel and a helles I guess?

clear amber with a beautiful tall, fine head. very nice, complex aroma of dark bread and a multitude of other malt-notes. some floral and herbal hops as well. well-balanced, but in context of the aroma surprisingly thin taste. good finish.

Good not great. That said, Iím not 100% sure what I was expecting. Decent flavor and all, just nothing that calls out "drink this again." But, quaffable.

Low carbonation and golden-colored. Very mild. Not hoppy at all. Dangerously drinkable, yet not complex. Better as it warms!

On tap at Zum Schneider. Deep amber in color with a nice tan head. Malty and caramel aroma. Crisp finish. Flavor is malty and hoppy. Caramel notes with some hop bitterness. Clean tasting. Nice beer.
