Bottle pours a redish amber color with very little head and very little lace. The aroma is malty and mild hops. The flavor is very malty, with a dry finish and a fair body. Overall, I'm pleased with it. Rockinout (966) - Kent, Ohio, USA - JAN 10, 2004
Darker copper color, smooth and well rounded slightly sweet taste but somewhat thin. Malty yet dry finish. redlem (1306) - Ohio, USA - JAN 5, 2004
Slight haze orange color with a small white head. Surprizing citrus aroma first with the malt following. Mainly a citrus taste that I found kind of weak. Decent session beer. Cartoonkhaki (1286) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 4, 2004
Golden colour. white head. bitters are mild and slight must Vienna none-the-less. Good for style. stefanberggren (135) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 31, 2003
This a very nice representation of a Vienna style and at a nice price to boot. Head fades somewhat fast(perhaps my glass?) malt aroma is very evident after pour. Color is copper and very clear. Although there was some residual yeast in the bottle. Nice hops flavor that is not at all obtrusive to the malt. Caramel notes are present and linger in the finish. Nice job !

Very tasty!!! This beer re-confirms why I love Viennas so darn much! The malt is deliciously assertive - with a honeyish sweetness that's to die for. In addition, the hops aren't forgotten, but they're in the background. Just enough to properly augment things, but they disappear quickly and don't linger. My lone complaint is the inability to get a head out of it! Otherwise, bravo. antisnobJP (275) - St. Michael, Minnesota, USA - NOV 19, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2005 Decent clean aroma not found in other Schell products. Beautiful copper-red color. Small head with fine bubbles and clingy lacing. Sweet malt flavor, lively carbonation, light mouthfeel, light tasty hop finish. Slightly dry,acidic finish. Extremely drinkable and good with food. Thanks to Schell for making this a year-round offering. Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - NOV 18, 2003
The pour is a translucent copper color with a minimal head that is semi-creamy in texture and a light tan color as it evaporates, the lace forms a fine sheet upon the glass. Nose is crisp and clean and malt sweet as is the start with the top light to moderate in feel. Finish is austere in its acidity; the hops are pleasant in their spicy presence, desert dry aftertaste and a nice drinking beer that would hit the spot on a hot Arizona afternoon. howie (549) - DeForest, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 17, 2003
Malty, but mild. A little spicy hop character. Very drinkable, a session option for those who like the style. bbrock81 (317) - Le Mars, Iowa, USA - NOV 13, 2003
UPDATED: APR 4, 2004 I really liked this beer. It was deliciously malty, with just a hint of hops in the aroma and flavor. The red amber color is beautiful. Another typically wonderful Schell product. This is definitely a keeper.
