Good on draft, goes well with a meal. Nothing outstanding, but not bad at all.

Bottle. Started 45 degrees. Looked pretty good with a decent whitish-tan foam head that hung around a little while. Not much smell. Light grain? Tasted crisp enough, a little on dry side but touch of sweetness. A small lingering something, wouldn't exactly call it bitterness on tongue. Mouthfeel seemed light almost watery. But to be fair, I've been drinking stouts and porters lately. Overall a good Vienna, but not sure I would choose this over, say, a lighter porter such as Anchor.
