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.

Clear copper color with thin white lacing. Thin up front with bold and slightly aspicy lingering finish. Good overall.

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.

hotstuff (4092) - Indiana, USA - DEC 17, 2003
Draft-Big River Brewery-Chattanooga, TN. This beer had a small sized white head that contained fine sized bubbles that was mostly lasting. The body was uncarbonated and transparent with an orange hue. It had a malty nose and a bitter and hoppy flavor to it. The mouthfeel was bitter and fairly smooth. This was a light-medium bodied beer that was just so-so.

PorterPounder (5547) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 30, 2004
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.

beeryum (652) - Norcross, Georgia, USA - JUN 20, 2005
Draft, light copper. I got a malty aroma on this. Beer was thin but malty, and hints of subdued spicy hops. Slightly bitter finish, and decent mouthfeel. I felt this was one of their better beers I had, behind the stout and IPA.

Bottle. Pours amber with thin off white head. Aroma of malt and bread. Taste is mostly malt and caramel. Thin mouthfeel. Bland and boring.

blipp (6111) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - JAN 11, 2012
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.

DrPiva (90) - Alabama, USA - DEC 18, 2007
Had a bunch of these on draft attending a Chattanooga Lookouts game, then tried it a month later at the Brewery. There is some herb or something in it that just didn’t appeal to me. I know it has won some awards so my review is just that – my opinion. I don’t find a very clean finish – sometimes grassy or herbal that leaves a funky taste with me.

A light amber color with a thin white head. Caramel malts, slightly toasty aroma. Some carmel flavors, toasted malts, a little thin.
