4.59/5 rDev +12.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Poured from a bottle into a flute glass. Small head, made up of large bubbles that quickly disappears with no lacing. Deep amber color with some reddish ting.
Nose is malty, grainy, and sweet. Very appealing and well balanced between be three.
Flavor follows nose. Full grain flavor with a nicely balanced maltiness. Sweet is more in the nose that the taste, but it is there. Real full flavor with a suitable mouth feel.
Overall a really good lager. I am more of an ale guy, but this one is really solid and may cause me to give more lagers a look.

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!
