A: Deep reddish copper color with about an inch of rocky white head. Head settles quickly and leaves behind copious amounts of lace. Close to sparkling clarity with an abundance of carbonation bubbles.
S: Aroma of bready malts, slightly sweet caramel malt, floral hops, and just a hint of honey.
T&M: Solid medium body with a good balance to the flavors. Excellent bready/ biscuity malt backbone aptly supports the complementary herbal/ floral hops as well as a slight spiciness reminiscent of black pepper. Finishes with a whisper of sweetness. Tasty.
D: One of the best lager beers that I have every tried. Outstanding in almost every way. This is one brew that I wouldn't mind having around all the time. Another top notch offering from a superb brewery. Well done Great Lakes!

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!
