In the mid to late 1800s, Viennese brewers produced a series of amber lager beers. The strongest was what we now call Marzen or Oktoberfest and the middle beer was just called Vienna. The weakest of the three was called Abzug, which means discount or reduction in German. With less lagering time and a much lower original gravity, Abzug lacks some of the smoothness of Bobtoberfest, but it make a very nice session beer. (1.013 BG, 3.80%, 28 IBU, 8 SRM)

bottle. 3.8% vienna, thank you heater allen. clear light chestnut colored body. light grassy noble hop notes in the nose with a toasty / biscuit vienna-like character. light body and thinner than it should be, so it’s a bit out of balance and has a watery feeling to it, and the malt is rougher than the other Heater Allen lagers. grassy and green flavor with an herbal tea nature. pleasant and interesting but ultimately it’s just simple field beer, and doesn’t match the quality of the coastal and the pilsner.

Bottle. Reddish with a thin white head and lots of lacing. Fuller flavoured than you would expect. Rather speedy and soon gone finish

On tap at Horse Brass. Nice clear amber pour with a nice bone-white head. Nice malt and bread aromas and flavors with a bit of a hop grassiness. Not a bad beer, but probably my least favorite from Heater-Allen so far.

Bottle thanks to GT2. Light toffee colored pour. Nose and flavor bring caramel and light spicy hop profile. Drinkable, but to be expected for a <4% brew. Definitely a Vienna and true to style, but not really captivating in any way. I could crush a bomber, but I didn’t really love the stuff.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - JAN 16, 2013
651mL thanks to brainlair. Pours a clear, orange with soapy, white foam. Okay to weak formation and soapy lacing. Nose is celery, tomato, whole wheat cracker, German malt, some soap. Taste is lemon detergent, some oil, mild wheat cracker, strange. Palate is densely malty, light grassy bitterness. Feels extremely German, but not necessary complete, fresh, or very good.
