Well-balanced aroma with a malt base and flowery-hop backdrop, hinting of caramel. Nice red-orange color. Flavor and especially the body fall flat, however: a sour mix of malts with little else to speak of, in an extremely watery base. Trying to be tactful in stating that the finish has hints of underarm odor! Still quite drinkable in the sense that its easy to guzzle down so theres only one instance of "finish" per bottle, and the beer buzz is pretty clean

Bottle: Golden hue with a small fading head and no lace. The aroma has notes of vanilla, bready malts, toffee, aromatic german hops (Saaz anyone?), and apple peel. The taste has a smooth malty note with a light bitter and fruity finish. Not too complex but easy to drink. The feel has a soft velvety texture which added to the overall enjoyment. A solid brew and pure Vienna.

shaker / eww, stinky aroma. i dont care to sniff it out anymore. okay... fizzy pour. bah. stinky. caramel? forget it. perhaps its a bad bottle because the score is currently 3.24 yet i hardly believe it. basically, this brew tastes like sweaty flowers dipped in caramel. it prickles, and leaves a strange aftertaste. meh.

Not bad but the malt tastes a tad stale-ish...? Maybe some oxidation going on there. Hops are nice, with good bitterness and a decent floral note in the aroma, but the malt doesnt mesh with them, mores the pity. A dull angry red color with slightly off-white head. I think this is from Grainbeltguzzler. Thanks!

UPDATED: NOV 1, 2007 Quite tasty MN brew. Roasted goodness abounds in this craft. tastes a little bitter at first i think ,but goes away after a few quality sips.

Pours small head with a dark amber color. A little cloudy... could have been the light though. It looks and smells a lot better than it tastes. Smooth but somewhat flat. Could use a little more carbonation. Nothing too impressive. Wheres the Zing???

Bottled. I belive this was my first beer in this style, back when I visited the Schell Brewery a few year ago. It seemed very likable then, though there are few faults when I try it now. There is a good Vienna malt smell. It pours a nice red with little to no head. Taste is rich and malty, but has the phenolic tang of peated malts. So a bit off, but thats the risk in this style. Definitely worth looking up if you get a chance.

Thanks to RobertsReality for this. Ruby pour with medium white head. Heavy malt aroma, with toffee, fruit, and slight barnyard elements. Tastes malty, with a dry finish and medium palate.

This bottled brew poured a large sized head of frothy mostly lasting off-white colored bubbles that left behind an unnoted lacing. The body contained average carbonation, was transparent and copper brown in color. Its aroma contained notes of grassy floral malts. Its mouth feel is initially tingly smooth with a tingly off palate and a strange aftertaste. Its flavor contained malty notes. A very average brew.

Light red, small head. One dimensional flavor of somewhat sweet malt. Better than many other Viennas I have had.
