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.

On tap at the bar at the brewery. Beautiful looking beer, ample head, clear bright amber color. Decent but subdued malt aroma. The flavor was scaled back a bit too, but this was one of the better ones I’ve had from there so far. Just needs a bit more body and flavor to suit me.

UPDATED: JAN 28, 2005 Had on tap at the brewery (1/05). Nothing very special about this beer, but I did think it was one of their better styles (I’m a pale ale drinker and I did not like their pale ale attempts). I could not detect much aroma but what I did note was nice and malty. I found the beer to malty as well as crisp and well balanced.

PorterPounder (5355) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 30, 2004
Had on tap at the Chattanooga location. Dark golden appearance, good sized head. Sweet, malty aroma. Has a slight nutty taste to it. Very smooth mouthfeel, quite pleasant to say the least. Above average for a brewpub lager.

This beer was the only one offered at a ball game other than BMC, and for the same price, I was in for a treat! Orange, wonderful aroma -- floral. Nicely hopped with a citrusy and malty finish.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 18, 2004
Caramel, toasted bread malt (M); earthy hops (L). Orange-amber body. Moderately sweet flavor becomes a lightly sweet, lightly bitter finish. Medium body, watery texture, soft carbonation. The bottom line is: nothing to see here folks, just move along...

hotstuff (4058) - Indiana, USA - DEC 17, 2003
Draft-Big River Brewery-Chattanooga, TN. This beer had a small sized white head that contained fine sized bubbles that was mostly lasting. The body was uncarbonated and transparent with an orange hue. It had a malty nose and a bitter and hoppy flavor to it. The mouthfeel was bitter and fairly smooth. This was a light-medium bodied beer that was just so-so.

TheDM and Hotstuff vacation brew 7. This draft brew was enjoyed at the Big River Brewery in Chattanooga Tennessee which was hosted by a pleasant accomodating staff. This brew poured a medium sized head of finely sized off-white colored bubbles that left behind a transparent uncarbonated red body and a fair lace. The mouthfeel was smooth and tingly at the start and smooth and chewy at the finish. It had a mild malt aroma and a red malt flavor. I noted that it was an OK beer.
