COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In the mid 1800’s 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%. IBU’s 25

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, it’s easy but elegant.
Not really a Vienna, but still a good showcase for German malts.

Oakes (12446) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 3, 2010
Bright copper colour (like a shiny penny). It has that tinny, vaguely caramelly "Am Dark" nose. Decent body but there remains that caramelly metallic taste that is too simple for such a beer.

KyotoLefty (6354) - 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.

Taste is big caramel, toffee, biscuit and crackery notes, hints of yeast, slight herbal, spcie and grass hops, finishing sweet, slightly dry.

after4ever (6114) - Brier, Washington, USA - APR 9, 2011
Draft at the Old Town. Pours an absolutely crystal clear medium amber with a beautiful dense creamy tan head. No lacing, and the head falls away after a few swigs, but it’s picture-perfect while it lasts. Toasty brown bread nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toasty brown bread mid-palate with caramel blended in artfully. Mild malty finish. Flavorful and refreshing.

Toasty doughy and earthy nose. Pours golden with a thin head. The flavor is nice and toasty with hints of dough, light carmelized flavors as well with a hint of earthy bitterness in the finish. Clean and crisp and very well done.

Nice light lager had some good flavors. I liked the light malt and the carbonation was very nice. Perfect afternoon working in the yard beer. Very clean and fresh.
