3.33/5 rDev -18.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
A - Pours well and leaves a good head. Lacing is average at best but nothing too extreme. Color is a dark amber.
S - Malt, Malt, Yeast, Yeast, Malt. It is definately like being in a bakery. After I got used to this their was a faint fruity smell.
T- Okay taste, nothing special. Had a slight hop taste. There was a slight metallic taste but it was very weak and as it was not consistent I am putting this down to a tainted palate.
M - Smooth going down, good carbonation.
D - It would be easy to drink if I liked the taste. I would normally say I would not revisit it but may to see if by any chance I had an off bottle.

12oz bottle, best by 7/28/2014, poured into a FFF pint glass 7/18/2014.
A- Clear amber body with a one finger tan head, good retention, leaves a fuzzy film on top, lots of lacing all around.
S- Sweet toffee malt, earthy noble hops, some caramel, crisp banana bread, yeast. Sweet but not cloyingly so and in a refreshing way.
F- Toffee, caramel, hint of raisin, a little banana (hence banana bread in the nose), earthiness, and the signature GLBC yeast flavour. This is excellent, not perfect but just about as outstanding as any brewer can make a Vienna lager.
M- Medium bodied, refreshing and crisp yet smooth and silky at the same time. They did a great job on this one. Very drinkable, no real effects of the ABV on the flavour at all.
O- Excellent take on the style, as I would expect from GLBC and their tradition of brewing excellent lagers. Why I never reviewed this before, I'm not sure, but I ought to get around to reviewing their other offerings as well!
