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.

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...

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.

jgb9348 (5676) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 3, 2003
Orange/Amber colour with a thin off-white head. Smells of malt are prominent. Medium-bodied; Decent hoppyness/malt balance in the taste-fairly fitting for a Vienna though. Aftertaste a bit bittering, but pretty good. Overall, a better than average Vienna! I had this on draught at Big River (owned by Gordon Biercsh) in Chattanooga, Tennesse on 26-September-2003.

Nice copper color with some white head. Not much though. Some malt in the aroma and flavor. Smooth and enjoyable. On tap at the brewhouse in Chattanooga.

aracauna (3501) - Georgia, USA - AUG 2, 2003
This is a blah beer. It has a nice amber, glowing color but lacks a lasting head. There is no aroma and has less flavor than their light lager. It's just bland. There is a bit of caramel and maybe a little wood. Quite smooth, but I've had better Viennas.

Shag (2839) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - JUL 2, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2003 A good beer especially for something found at a minor league baseball game. Appearance is orangish. Aroma is malty and fruity. Flavor has a nice malt kick with a slightly fruity taste, maybe apricots and oranges, and some hop presence. Mouthfeel is quite nice, creamy and smooth, with a nice bite. Much better than I expected.

Decent flavor but nothing really special about this one. Maybe it's just this style of beer that is boring to me. A quality product non the less.

A light hop aroma with decent lace. Solid hop aroma and flavor with touch of malt. Crisp finish. Again, not memorable but easy to drink.

boto (2102) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - JAN 15, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 4, 2005 Draught in Chattanooga: I agree with most of the other reviews. This one pours a slightly orangish-amber color. Somewhat floral aroma. This beer has a nice malty balance with the hops. There is a decent tart, citric taste from the hops without being overpowering. A smooth, tasty lager, but nothing too special.
