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.

Bottle. Poured a clear copperish color with a one finger off white head. Aroma was of malt and some floral notes. Flavor had sweet malt and bready notes. I was decently impressed with this offering.

ChainGangGuy (4808) - Woodstock, 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.

Draft at Downtown Chattanooga location Poured a deep ruddy color with an almost white head. Aroma was hidden so well had to foam my nose to find it, but nice when I found it. Flavor is light bodied for the style, but has nice toasted malt and bread flavors as expected.

Hamilton Place. The body was light copper with an off white head. The aroma was rich bread and caramel. There was also some iced black tea. The taste was black tea with some dusty caramel. Good for the style.

Had a bunch of these on draft attending a Chattanooga Lookouts game, then tried it a month later at the Brewery. There is some herb or something in it that just didn’t appeal to me. I know it has won some awards so my review is just that – my opinion. I don’t find a very clean finish – sometimes grassy or herbal that leaves a funky taste with me.

Bottle, picked up in Chattanooga. Poured clear, lighter reddish-orange with a short-lived cap of white head. The aroma picked up lots of over-sweetened caramel malts with the slightest bit of toast to ’em.. fainter dark fruits emerge with warmth, along with some herbal and earthy notes. The flavor again found too-sweet caramel and dark fruits with fizzy herbal and floral bitterness falling off the sides of the tongue.. sweet, tacky finish. Lighter-bodied and too sweet on the palate, but refreshing.. this was certainly drinkable.
