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.

Draught at the Hamilton Place location. Pours light copper with sticky off-white head. The aroma is very mild with toasted malt, a tangerine hint, and subtle fruity hops. The flavor is very mellow with toasted malt, a hint of caramel, a little bit of wood. There’s a sweetness that somehow reminds me of the marshmallows in Lucky Charms cereal. Light fruity hops in the finish. The caramel quality sticks around through the aftertaste. It seems to get fruitier after several sips.

boto (1856) - 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.

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.

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.

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...

Nice orange color, decent head. Smells very bready and the taste follows suit. This reminds me of a marzen and I was quite surprised by ho much I enjoyed this beer. Of all the Big River beers this was probably the best one I had the chance to sample. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 02-13-2009 21:09:49

coolpop (1395) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JUL 6, 2013
Draft. Poured pale amber with a medium-sized white head. Aroma and flavor were toasted malt, slightly spicy hops. Fruitiness comes out as it warms slightly (not my intention -- part of a sampler flight). Light to medium body.
