One is greeted by a great roasted malt aroma when the beer is poured out. Flavor is much the same, malt and roast fill the palate nicely. Good beer.

UPDATED: JUL 18, 2010 Very Sweet/malty aroma when cracking the bottle, Deep amber pour, crisp yet flavorful finish...Light roasted malt finish, but all in all a fine combo with the malt/ hop/Yeast flavor!

Bottle. Amber in colour with a beige coloured head. The aroma was malty ( lots of bread, caramel and cookies) with some citrus. The flavour was of cookie dough, roasted nuts, caramel. Smooth mouthfeel, medium body, medium carbonation. Finishes with a medium lingering bitterness. Quite enjoyable.

Crimson colored with a small, off-white head. First whiff was a pleasant toasted malt aroma followed by some soft fruitiness. Smooth textured mouthfeel with moderate amount of carbonation. Earthiness in the finish.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - MAY 21, 2005
Pours copper with a decent offwhite head that laces a little. Mild citrus and mostly caramel malt aroma. The flavor is malty, some brown sugar notes and maple syrup. Very smooth on the palate and creamy. Quite a tasty brew and it leaves a very sweet doughy aftertase that made me want to get the next one out of the cooler. All viennas should be judged by this one. Delicious!!

Indra (2711) - Suburbia, Kansas, USA - MAY 20, 2005
Bottled. Soft, sweet, mildly fruity and malty aroma. Medium-dark copper-brown color, clear, with a slight, fading head. Flavor profile is mild and lightly sweet, some light brown sugar and gentle nutty breadiness mingling at the finish with some lightly spicy hop and lingering dark grainy sweetness. Smooth, lightly carbonated palate with a light-medium body. Highly drinkable and would make for an excellent session beer. At least, if I had more than the one bottle, it would.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 16, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2006 Bright golden brown in color with not much of a head. Souring aroma. Smells mighty malty, like a Marzen sans hops. Some brown sugar and maple syrup in the smell as well. Spice completion ignites the smooth, subtle flavoring. Nuts and caramel protrude. Much creamier than expected. Finishes like a cinnamon roll. Not very eventful, but good.

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAY 8, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 22, 2007 Pours amber with a fully receding wispy white head. Aroma of toffee, caramel, and malty lager yeast. Taste of chewy caramel malt with bready yeast. Alcohol is somewhat noticable. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with dense carbonation. Reminds me very much of an Oktoberfest I just brewed, this yeast is very similar to Wy2308. Enjoyable.

I have to say that I have enjoyed every Great Lakes beer that I have had so far, very smooth, great taste and aroma, when I have the money, I will go for the variety pack
