I'm almost certain the confusion is with sites like beeradvocate and ratebeer calling it a vienna, but in only going by their word, which was credible I thought, I mistakenly thought it was a vienna and I'm not alone but you all have cleared that up! Lol

The Beer Advocate drones drink better beer then the BMC crowd but they don't necessarily know any more about beer.
