Bottle. Pours clear copper, small beige head, decent residual and lacing. Aroma is a bit unappetizing, caramel, rotting grass, corn syrup. Flavor is much better, medium sweet, light bitter, corn and caramel. Medium body. euniceradio (537) - Worthington, Minnesota, USA - NOV 10, 2015
12oz bottle to tulip. Pours deep clear copper, off-white head. Aroma of caramel, brown sugar, raisins and roasted malts. Taste of the same. Mouthfeel is mod with heavy carb. Ericular (1020) - Minnesota, USA - AUG 31, 2015
Sampled at Northgate Andover beer tasting. This was the style that first turned me on to craft beer in general, so that might be part of it. Fresh and crisp with a bready middle and mild hop finish. justsayswell (281) - Kansas City, Kansas, USA - AUG 30, 2015
Pours a light red/copper with a pillowy tan head. Moderate chunky lacing. Nose is toast, biscuit, corn, honey, butterscotch. Light to medium mouthfeel. Kinda sweet, caramelly malt,’whole grain bread, molasses, faint noble/ citrus hop in the finish. Not awful. nealblind (1865) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - AUG 10, 2015
Dark red brown pour. Aroma creamy, slight butter. Tastes tobacco leather. More alt beer than Vienna. Toasty.

Nice Vienna larger with balanced Munich malt character. Mild hop flavor. Nice change from IPA’s but nothing spectacular. deyholla (11604) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 27, 2015
Bottle thanks to Ben! Pours a clear light amber with a grayish tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a combination of bread and biscuit with a bit of sweetness. Flavor is also bread and biscuit forward with some earthy grain underlying. Obfuscate (573) - Minneapolis, - DEC 24, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 12, 2016 I’m a sucker for Vienna Lagers and session beers in general. Immensely drinkable I could drink these all night long. Nice lighter toasted malt, caramel, nice dryness on the back makes you want to drink more. This beer would go great with spicy food. I can see why this beer has won awards for the style.
Edit: bumping the rating up. Perfect beer to have while grilling Brats, burgers and eating various potato salads. Pappy5730 (4) - - OCT 2, 2014 does not count
Slightly above average beer with a light clean taste. Goes down smooth. My favorite Schell’s beer. johnnymusky (983) - Minnesota, USA - OCT 2, 2014
One of flavors in the mixed twelve pack.....not bad....malt heavy but very drinkable beer.
