Pours a beautiful caramel gold topped with a one finger creamy khaki head, well carbonated leaves sticky webs of lacing down the glass as the beer is all too quickly drank.
Malty, clean aroma, spicy noble type hop with caramel and toast. Caramel increases with warming.
Malty, bready munichy taste. Spicy hops and there is a fair amount of bitterness, pretty hoppy for a Vienna. Touch of raisiny caramel.
Medium to full bodied, session beer drinkability if it wasn't for the 6.2% ABV
excellent, thanks to radioscooter for the sample

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!
