COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In the mid 1800ís the Viennese had something new to brew as lighter styles of beer were popping up all over Europe. They created what is now know as Vienna malt, the amber malt was stewed after the barley was sprouted, this converted some of the malt starches into sugars, which were then caramelized by a gentle roasting. Our Vienna Lager is brewed with half Vienna malts creating a delicate malt aroma with a slightly caramelized and toasted malt character. Light Bronze in color with a slight bitterness, this beer finishes clean and crisp! Original Gravity 12.5 Plato. ABV 5%. IBUís 25

On tap at the Dig Bar American craft event. My hatís off to you Catfish! A great looking ruddy amber pour with a malty caramel aroma. Med-full bodied with a slightly rough mouthfeel. The taste is caramel malts, cinnamon & biscuit. Pretty good, I just wish the mouthfeel was smoother/softer.

Draft - Sweet grains on the nose. Clear copper with a rich beige head. Tastes of grains and a out of balanced sweetness for my taste. Clean finish. Not my style.

Draft at chuckanut. medium amber / bronze. Malty sweetness (toffee and some dark fruit), caramel; straightforward and tasty - I haven't had many Vienna lagers, but this is the best I've had. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

KyotoLefty (6563) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 13, 2013
Draught at CBB. Nice caramel malt nose, rich and thick. Very malty flavor of sweet caramel. Soft, full mouth. Fruity, with cherries. A tasty beer with great malt, though a bit one-dimensional.

Light copper color. Nice frothy white head. Very clean malty nose with notes of mineral and bread. Very nice clean malty mouth with bread and caramel. Light body, light to moderate amounts if bitterness. Very well executed. Nice bready hoppy finish. Beautifully crafted.

Draught at the brewpub
Amber color, hazy. Nice malt aroma, with some cereals. Smooth and lean mouthfeel; some malt, honey and cereals. Correct bitterness. Overall, itís easy but elegant.
Not really a Vienna, but still a good showcase for German malts.

IndianaRed (2501) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 29, 2012
As part of a sampler tray during my visit to Bellingham. Golden clear witha huge fluffy sandy colored head. Light bready aroma and a slightly sweet grain flavor. the hops come through a bit more than I expected and the full maltiness is not quite what I was expecting. Nice and tasty, attenuated nicely and lingering slightly woody tang at the end. Maybe a bit hoppy and bitter for the style.

Sampled at 10/12/2012 at GABF. This Vienna Lager pours a light gold color from the tap. Medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is caramel, fruity and sweet. A medium bodied Vienna Lager. The malts are fruity, caramel and sweet. The hops are earthy and spicy. Clean and smooth tasting. Nice balance. Nice slightly sweet malts throughout. Nice beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.
