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.

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.

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.

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...

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.

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.

Poured from a 12-oz bottle with a smallish white head. Poured an amber color, a little cloudy. A nice biscuit malt aroma. Taste of sweet malts. A good offering.

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.

UPDATED: JAN 28, 2005 Had on tap at the brewery (1/05). Nothing very special about this beer, but I did think it was one of their better styles (I’m a pale ale drinker and I did not like their pale ale attempts). I could not detect much aroma but what I did note was nice and malty. I found the beer to malty as well as crisp and well balanced.

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.
