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.

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.

Nice maltiness. Very smooth and clean. An enjoyable lager, but nothing outstanding.

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.

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.

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

SpringsLicker (3127) - Tennessee, USA - MAR 21, 2005
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.

Suttree (5131) - 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.
