I used a pound of it in a Kolsch with the rest being Avangard Pilsner. A very tasty, "German" tasting beer if that makes any sense. I don't know if I would compare it to a light munich, Vienna is kind of it's own thing. Munich to me is more malty rich, while Vienna is more toasty sweet.

Yep, Munich is definitely malty rich and Vienna more toasty (not really sweet to me though.)

 I brewed a beer using it as a base malt with a bit of C40, northern brewer hops and BRY-97.
 I suck at describing flavors, but I thought it was good.

Maybe you got the wrong stuff? I find Vienna malt (Avangard's included) to be closer to Pale Ale malt than Light Munich.

I was just going to say this. Avangard's Munich is actually pretty light.

The Avangard Dark Munich is pretty dark at 15L. Been working some of that into my Dunkel.
