COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Community Beer Company’s deference to classic, old world European lagers manifests as our year round offering Community Lager. A true lager, this beer takes about five to six weeks to make from the day we mill the malt to finished, sparkling clear beer. This all malt, Vienna-style lager begins with our own crystal clear water – run through our state of the art filtration system – which is treated to mimic the waters of Bavaria, before being mashed with the finest malts from one of the oldest German maltsters. Using traditional techniques, we craft this lager’s wort in our four vessel brewhouse, transferring it to our fermenters to settle in for the long haul that all true lagers must undergo. Our European lager strain ferments very cold and slow, leaving a crisp, clean, highly quaffable, light copper colored beer. While most of our beers are unfiltered, we feel it is vitally important to filter this delicate beer, allowing the drinker to appreciate the clean, subtle complexities of a truly world-class lager.

Comes out of the tap a nice clear a beer with a thick and fine-bubbled pale golden tan head. Malty aroma has an apple overtone. Flavor’s firm malty core holds up apple and subtle yeasty and honey.notes quite well. Smooth texture has average fizz. A good community to join.

Tap. The look is copper colored, white decent head, and almost clear. The smell is grainy, rich, malt, real rich malt, and mulch. The taste is rich, malty, mulch, cedar, and good.

(Draught) Pours a clear copper body with a medium white head. Aroma of grain, earth, toffee, and light citrus. Flavor of grain, earth, biscuit, honey, and grass with a dry finish.

BMan1113VR (7834) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 14, 2013
On tap at BTBF and the brewery. I guess it shows that Jamie hasn’t lost a step from the Covey’s multiple GABF and WBC medals for the Vienna. Pours with a clear golden-copper hued body with a retentive white head. Aromas are huge toasty malt, baked bread, biscuity. Low floral hop. Very clean fermentation. Flavors are toasty, lightly floral, honey, bready, biscuity. Probably the best Vienna that I have ever had (including Heater Allen Lagers, Great Lakes, Jack’s Abbey, etc). Clean, dry, biscuity with medium body. Drinkable. Spot on beer.

angrypirate06 (1387) - Texas, USA - MAY 7, 2013
Tap at BTBF and multiple pours at the brewery. Golden pour with a foamy white head. Nose is estery, grains, cereal. Flavor is cleanly fermented malts, dryer sheets (yes, that’s a thing), fruity, tons of cereal and grain. Great session beer, would love a growler to drink while mowing the lawn, or doing anything else I don’t enjoy.

Excellent example of a rare beer. All the maltiness of a scotch ale but the lightness of a pils. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not a fan at all. Too bitter for my taste. Probably to style for a Vienna lager but my first. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

legion242 (2163) - Richardson, Texas, USA - MAR 8, 2013
Poured a decent enough colour with a firm head, but that is where the goodness stopped. Nose was rank and the flavours were all over the place, lacking a good malt backbone that the style should have.

theisti (3185) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - MAR 8, 2013
10 oz draft pour at The Common Table in Dallas, Texas. The pour is a clear golden copper with a smallish off white head. The aroma is biscuit malt, light malt sweetness, grass and hay. The taste is the malt, lightly sweet, grass, and dry straw earthiness in the back. The palate is light to medium bodied, active course carbonation, and the straw earth finish. Clean and tasty.

Mora2000 (5568) - McKinney, Texas, USA - FEB 24, 2013
On tap at the brewery. Pours an amber color with a white head. I get a ton of biscuit and toffee malt, with a hint of grass thrown in. A very malt forward beer as you would expect, but there is a hint of bitterness even though there is not much hop flavor. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
