A amber hued lager with a smooth malt palate and a dry finish. A great session beer brewed in the style of Vienna lagers.

Tap. Pours clear amber with a medium, fizzy white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is light cookie and caramel malt, spicy hops and a clean lager character. Flavor is malt forward with medium hops and bitterness and a sweet finish. Medium body, warmth and carbonation.

UPDATED: APR 1, 2009 Draft at the brewpub, Jan 2007 version. Golden fire color, clear. Nose of apples, cranberries and honey. Palate is noticeably thin, and flavor is more faint than expected, but still has a solid biscuit malt, honey and apple flavor. Fairly good, but not exactly what I like in Vienna lager.

DocLock (7745) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 21, 2004
I liked this beer, and Otto's is a great place. Pours darm amber, with medium head. Aroma of hops, malt, citrus, and florals. Tastes malty, bitter, with hints of spice and fruit. Very complex. I took a growler of this to go.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - AUG 19, 2007
On tap at the brewpub on 4/9/07: Pours a transparent orange bronze with a thin, frothy covering of white head. Aroma of slightly toasty and sweet Vienna malt with a touch of Hallertau hops. Sweet, caramely malty body has a nice touch of toasted grain toward a thinner, bittersweet finish. A pretty nice Vienna.

On tap at Otto’s. Pours a clear orange tinged amber with a medium sized white head. Crisp crackers and grain on the nose, a touch of sweetness. Crisp and grainy, super clean. A touch of sweet grain and soft bitterness into the finish. Easy drinking.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAR 11, 2009
Draft at Otto’s. Pours an amber body with a white head. Dry lagered notes, nutty with light fruitiness. Mildly chewy and enjoyable.

egajdzis (5277) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 5, 2004
Copper color with no head. Malt and light citrus aroma. Very malty, light spice, and mild, dry, hop finish. OK, but nothing spectactular.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 13, 2005
This should be recategorized into the Vienna style I think. It certainly doesnt pour like a pale lager, but rather it is a medium copper color and almost no head. Aroma is mostly hoppy with lots of subtle spices, and herbal/floral hints. Good malt profile- light caramel hints, some bready hints, and a great hop flavor and moderate bitterness. Relatively smooth, and easy to drink.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4843) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 22, 2013
Sampled on draft at the brewpub this beer poured a dark caramel-brown color with a medium sized foamy white head that faded and left good lacing. The aroma was tart, tangy and citric. The flavor was bitter, tart and tangy with fruity and citric hops and some astringency underneath. Long citric hop finish. Medium body and smooth. Pleasant.

JaBier (4834) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - NOV 18, 2009
Sample at the brewpub. Clear gold pour with a thin white head. Pale malt nose with a bit of hop. Noble hop flavor with a bit of malt before a crisp finish.
