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.

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.

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.

Suttree (5548) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 11, 2007
Understated, and probably would have gone really well with dinner. Dark brown, or perhaps copper. Tasty, grainy flavors and an ever-so-slight hop finish.

Very light copper with a fizzy white head. Earthy barley aroma and a sweet malty taste and a clean finish.

decaturstevo (5459) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - MAR 9, 2007
On tap. Slight malt aroma. A copper colored pour with a slight off white head. A decent malt on the front with an excelleent bitter finish. Slightly over carbonateed and a tad thin almost a 4 but not hardly. a pleasant surprise in that I expected the standard lager with no hops and the wet paper tates none of which was there. A good beer.

Tasted on tap at brewpub. Pours an orange gold color. Small sized white foamy head. Aroma is orange, malt and sweet. A medium bodied vienna lager. Malts are caramel and sweet, touch of biscuit. Hops are slightly citrusy and earthy. Nice carbonation. Touch of hop bite in the finish. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is crisp and dry. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

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.

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.

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.

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.
