Probably the first good lager I ever had. With actual taste, it left me quite surprised. With hints of caramel and bitterness, but all at a subdued lager level. I found it to be very spicy and herby as well, but all within a comfortable range. I rated it so high, because this is what lagers have the potential to be, instead of light piss water.

pours a clear orange/amber with a large off-white head. toasted malt and hop aroma. awesome flavor with tons of bready, toasty malts and fresh green floral hops while keeping a light body. a fantastic vienna. ChainGangGuy (4941) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - JAN 13, 2008
Appearance: Pours a nice, orangey-copper body with a full, frothy off-white head. Tiny-bubbled effervescence.
Smell: Mild, toasty caramel maltiness with a touch of graininess. Bright Saaz noble hop bouquet with further notes of grass, citrus, and floral to enjoy as well.
Taste: Light caramel and pale maltiness with a slight toastiness and sweetness. Lemony, grassy, even herbal hop flavors with a medium bitterness is fast on the malt’s heels, though. Hint of orange. Floral, fruity finish with a lingering bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Drinkability: That being said, I defy any person with a soul to not enjoy this Vienna. Cybercat (6334) - Georgia, USA - JUN 18, 2008
Aroma is strong and malty with just a whisper of fruit - banana on second examination. Color is a dark honey-amber, not like your typical lager, and with a nice thick off-white head that sticks around for a bit. Flavor is smooth, malty with a fair amount of hoppy bitterness and a trace of fruit. Hop flavor dominates the aftertaste. This is rather different from what I expect when drinking a lager.

Aroma is sweet with a little malt. Color is a deep gold with a hint of orange. Carbonation is good with a very thin head. Taste is bright and hoppy. Starting with medium body it goes down with a slight creamy feel. Finish comes in sweet with a hint of malt then a bright hop flavor that has just a touch of citrus and a faint bitterness. After taste is dry with the bitterness riding along. This is a great Lager with amazing hop character.

Tasting - Gulf Brew 2010 - normally I’d have better notes, but the only thing my notes say on this beer is that I’d buy it. I must have enjoyed the look of this pour. I never give anything a 5. Slipstream (2719) - USA - OCT 17, 2010
Cool Coney Island / Luna Park crazy face on the label. Pretty dark pour for a lager. Nice aroma for the style too - malty with floral tones. This is a pretty dry, full-flavored lager with a lightly smokey finish. An excellent lager! Schmaltz makes some of the best lagers available. I can’t think of a better one offhand.
