COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Vienna lager is a light, amber-colored lager. This European style was developed when Vienna was the center of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Since 1833, Vienna lager has quenched many a thirst with its subtle combination of malted barley, and German hops, and its clean, crisp finish. A wonderful beer for any season.

Golden copper with a thin off white foam. Aroma of caramelized malt, toasted malt. Taste is the same caramel and toasted malt but feels watery.

Smells malty. Tastes quite smooth and malty. The flavor is quite good! The palate is evenly balanced and bold without being overbearing. Just very good and nice. Not over the top, but very pleasant.

Nice orange color, decent head. Smells very bready and the taste follows suit. This reminds me of a marzen and I was quite surprised by ho much I enjoyed this beer. Of all the Big River beers this was probably the best one I had the chance to sample. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 02-13-2009 21:09:49

ChainGangGuy (4422) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUL 15, 2008
Appearance: Pours a clear, mahogany-hued body with a 1½ inch head of off-white foam. Smell: Faint bready malt aroma with slight herbal notes. Taste: A blend of bready and biscuity maltiness with a touch of caramel sweetness. Very faint touch of fruitiness. Herbal, tea-like hop character with a mild bitterness. Touch grainy near the drying finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: A tolerable Vienna, though it does leave me hankering for an Eliot Ness.
