I’ve used Weyermann and don’t care for the flavor I get from it.  I need to try other continental brands.
I've had good results with Bestmaltz.

Yes, Golden Pils Vienna is a Briess product.

Is Golden Pils Vienna different than regular Vienna malt?

There are differences in any Vienna malts. It is not monolithic. One will not be like another.

This is another great example of how completely different we all are.

I’ve used GoldPils in the past and didn’t have any problems with it. Performance and flavor were great.

I’ve used Weyermann and don’t care for the flavor I get from it.  I need to try other continental brands.

I much prefer craft malts over either and I use them when I can.  Mecca Grade quickly comes to mind (but I can’t stand Northern Brewer’s shipping experience).

And it's not just true of Vienna...it's true of any malts made by different maltsters. They may have the same name, but that's only  a general description.

Haven’t tried GoldPils …I wasn’t overly impressed with copper pils, but I respect the idea and attempt to bring something new to the market.   I see this as the maltsters doing what craft brewers do - innovate……

I agree that maltster A Vienna and maltster B Vienna will be different. Maltsters use their own quality standards, barley varieties, processes, etc., so you can encounter differences  from one maltster to the next.  Even malt from the same maltster from lot to lot or year to year can be different.
