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.

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.

This is a blah beer. It has a nice amber, glowing color but lacks a lasting head. There is no aroma and has less flavor than their light lager. It's just bland. There is a bit of caramel and maybe a little wood. Quite smooth, but I've had better Viennas.

Draught. Pours light copper with a faint white head. The aroma is sweet in a floral way with a very low acidity. The flavor is predominantly malty, though the brew is still thin overall. Hints of chocolate bread and nutmeg make up the light flavor and perhaps a small nip in the finish. Not so bad.

Golden copper with a thin off white foam. Aroma of caramelized malt, toasted malt. Taste is the same caramel and toasted malt but feels watery.

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.
