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.

hopscotch (8914) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 15, 2007
Draft... Disney Boardwalk location... Clear, deep amber lager with a small, fizzy, white head. Caramel aroma with earthy and spicy notes. Malty flavor, but well-balanced with good bitterness. Medium-bodied and creamy with lively carbonation. Coarse, lightly bitter finish.

Ughsmash (7101) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 28, 2007
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.

Draft. Pours amber with a white head. Lightly sweet malty aroma, but relatively clean and grainy. The flavor is malty, with sweet and grainy notes, and not much else. Pretty good.
