Interesting one this, a cross between a Vienna lager and a mild. 3.9% with a strong malt base.

https://www.homebrewersassociation.org/homebrew-recipe/sweet-mischief-vienna-mild/

"After visiting Bohemian Brewery in Salt Lake City, Charlie Papazian had a hankering for the subtle complexity and thirst-quenching satisfaction of a Vienna-style lager, but already had plans to brew a tried-and-try English mild ale. In true homebrew fashion, Charlie decided to combine the best of both worlds to create Sweet Mischief Vienna-Mild.

“The unique roast character of the brown malt and the caramel sweetness of the crystal malt along with lower gravity represent mild ale-ness. The generous amount of mellow, toasty Munich malt along with neutral base Pilsner malt heads in the direction of a Vienna lager. Belgian aromatic malt always contributes a great goosing if rich malt aroma and flavor is desired. The small amount of Belgian aromatic malt is subtle and has kind of a catalytic effect, helping emphasize the Munich and Crystal.

Dry hopping with Crystal hops imparts an aromatic character appropriate to both English ales and German lagers. I wanted to give this beer a lager-like emphasis in bitterness and flavor, so I used German Hallertauer in the long bittering boil and American Mt. Hood to contribute a honey and floral-like flavor, though with a 45-minute boil most of that character is minimized. The overall balance of this beer emphasized subtlety yet offers satisfaction in those thirst and sessionable occasions.”

I don't know if Greg would drink owt, he does like unusual beers though I reckon .

Its a Charlie Papazian recipe though, published in the American Homebrewers association magazine, so it cant have been a disaster.

It would draw yer cheeks the gither like sooking a soor sweetie. Think acid drops from the shop when you were wee and you bought 2oz or a quarter and got them in a wee paper bag. First hit was a palate shocker, like licking the top of a 9 volt battery or chewing silver paper on your fillings. Is it flavoursome - god yes in absolute bucket loads. Is there horse blanket? Who even knows what that tastes like[sneaky]

It is fruity and soor and delicious. Completely different from anything I have ever brewed. I love it[thumb]
