COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Deep Amber red color, with a fragrant malt aroma. Flavorful notes of rich caramelized malt and noble hop flavors harmonize on the palate leading to a crisp clean finish.

In a blind taste test I say no way this is a lager...too full flavored (roasted malt and hoppy bitterness) with a rich mouthfeel and nice crisp bitter finish. Pretty good.

It has a tangy taste. Brilliant red color, bad atmittedly I picked it because of the color. Nutty complicated flavor. Fruity and nutty all at once. Thick palat feel in my opinion.

Sickboy282 (1114) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 19, 2005
Pours a cloudy amber hue, with a small halo of a slight off-white head. Aromas of roasted malts, honey, a hint of caramel. Mouthfeel is medium bodied wiith flavots of caramel, grain, caramel, and a little bit of roasted nuts. Very nice finish....wow, I am not the biggest vienna fan, not to mention lager fan, but this is very tasty.

pivo (2672) - GERMANY - JAN 16, 2005
Nice ruddy color and a light tan, fluffy head. Some toasted malt in the nose. Sweet and caramelly malt, though not overpowering. A little bitter and decent hop blend. Good balance and a smooth brew.

cazort (560) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 13, 2005
Good, but doesnt seem to have any real distinguishing qualities; intermediate in bitterness among the great lakes brews. Good balance of hops and malt. Pleasant aroma. Rich flavour without being weird in any way. I gladly drink it, but I think some of the other Great Lakes brews are a bit more exciting.

hotstuff (4921) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JAN 7, 2005
Bottle. Medium sized ivory head that mostly diminished, fair lacing, fine sized bubbles, carbonated, and a dark orange hue. Malty, caramel, hoppy, sweet aroma. Flavor was sweet, malty and hoppy with a slght aftertaste. Tingly, hoppy and dry palate. Medium bodied beer. Quaffable.

crizay (1050) - Brook Park, Ohio, USA - JAN 5, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2006 Pours a more red of an amber color with a slight beige head. Real good flavor to it, can really taste sweet caramel and its malty, nice hop kick and actually alcohol kick to it that give it a nice bite.

jeffc666 (1984) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - JAN 1, 2005
Deep sparkling copper body topped by a foamy light tan head with stringy lacing. The aroma is pure malty vienna lager. Lightly nutty, notes of butter and hops. Subtle but nice aroma. The flavor is briliant. Nutty sweet bitterness that is simply divine. Extremely drinkable. Medium body lightly dry finsih. One of the best viennas out there. Thanks Dan, though you still owe me. ;)

JMerritt (1941) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - DEC 19, 2004
I drank this a mere 12 hours after the "best by" date. Black cherry colored with a small, light-brown head that is mostly diminishing. Light brown sugar aroma, with sour grains and light citrus. Lightly bitter, with sour grains most prevalent, multigrain bread, and roasted nuts. Some slightly fruity esters. Very mellow, and quite possibly past its prime- though if it went south less than a day after its best by date, thats pretty bad.
