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.

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.

Bottle thanks to Bill!   Somewhat of a weak soy sauce flavor profile.   Its grainy, mealy, and very dusty with a stale cupboard background.   Its like old crackers, meat, and bread all in one, with some old soy sauce.   Nope, this one is not working at all.

Mora2000 (5358) - 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.

notalush (4640) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 6, 2014
Tap at the brewery - clear straw color - aroma of toasty and bready malts, a bit Munich richness, lightly grassy hops - flavor is mostly clean, round carbonation in the mouth - fairly rich malts, followed by toasty notes, tempered by a peppery and grass hop bite on the end - the finish is slightly unclean, but otherwise a pretty solid offering.

travita (3720) - Frisco, Texas, USA - JUN 22, 2013
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.

Cavie (3672) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - OCT 6, 2013
Tap at Zio Carlo. Pours a very clear dark orange color with a very frothy beige head. Aroma is malty sweet, grainy, biscuity, sugar and toast. Flavor is smooth, malty, grains, light sweetness with a gentle bitterness. This is very tasty. Jamie/Eric hasn't lost his touch! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
