amber, beige head. toasty malt aroma with some caramel and mild orange. juicy malt flavour with more caramel and mild spiciness. whole wheat and earth flavour in the finish. nice. 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.

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.

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 Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - APR 27, 2005
Poured a nice dark amber color with a decent lingering head. Taste is of nuts with some lingering fruit qualities in the backdrop. Boutip (6385) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 25, 2005
Bottle: Poured a mid-brown color beer with an above average white foamy head with good retention. Nice malty aroma with some roastiness and some nuts. Taste is quite malty with a smooth creamy taste and light bitterness at the end. Body is fuller then expected and probably fuller then most Vienna I tasted before. Overall, this is real good stuff.

Malt and a bit of nuts in aroma. Nice and full body with a very tasty malt. A bit chewy and roasty. Ends with a little hops. Very good stuff. Radek Kliber (7368) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - APR 12, 2005
Nice presenting pale ruby brew. Decent creamy head. Light slightly woody aroma, sweet with noticeable alcohol at the finish. Medium bodied, sweet malts with off raw cabbage like aftertaste. Light bitter finish.
