Enjoyed this Vienna. Nice longneck, great pour and a smooth clean taste. A good cheap beer. I don't know how in depth one can go on a review for a beer like this but ya I enjoyed it. Nice toasty malt, clean crisp finish and perfect amount of bitterness.

Poured from the bottle into a Libbey style pilsner glass.

Real nice color and body to this brew. Pale chestnut amber, with hints of lighter bronze and some dark gold around the edges. Absolutely crystal clear with the occasional slow rising fine bubble. Head is minimal but with a good off tan color, and settles to a small collar and ring that looks creamy. Very nice Vienna.

Real nice amounts of light toast and caramel on the nose. Considerably lighter in quality than your typical bock, but with a nice very subtle caramel action. No discernible notes of hop presence, but with a clean quality on the nose. Solid as it gets.

Palate is interesting. Light toasty and expected caramel notes but with a much easier and crisper quality. Muted almost honey like body but with a good amount of crisp finish and aftertaste. There's a very small but not jarring metallic twinge on the finish, and it does sort of slowly linger as well. A bit of carbon dioxide and soda water flavors come in too, almost with a mineral like aftertaste, also contributing to a very popping mouthfeel as well.

Can't say I have had many Vienna's this light, but almost comes off like a session Vienna if there is such a thing. Decent and drinkable at least.

12 oz. brown glass bottle, production coded but not freshness dated

Given the producer I was expecting something like Corona but this is definitely different. It's more of a Vienna lager, and most likely uses actual Vienna malts in its production.

It's clear, fairly dark amber in color, and appears almost copper in a full glass. It's topped by a short head of creamy off-white that drops rather quickly, and both the head retention and lacing are limited.

In the mouth it's light-medium in body and gently crisp.

There's not much to the nose beyond some generic maltiness but the flavor is fuller. It's gently caramelish and there are some pleasant and balancing spicy and grassy hops in the background. There's a subtle fruitiness that's probably coming from the Vienna malts rather than the yeast, and it's really nicely rounded and polished, yet it remains lacking overall without enough malt to really bring it to life.
