COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our take on the classic European amber lager. It has bright reddish highlights and a pronounced bready malt aroma reminiscent of its Austrian counterparts. The flavor plays slightly toward caramel and toasted lager malt but remains balanced and drinkable with a clean finish perfect for a summer session.

Review: Bottle of Sierra Nevada Vienna Style Lager: ABV: 5.30% A Vienna style beer is a light coloured amber lager that has a delicate balance between sweet caramel malts and floral hops Aroma: Lovely smell, I got toasted biscuit tones, sweet caramel and malts, all of which were absolutely lovely to smell, wow, really liked the aroma, good start................. Appearance: On pour I got a clear amber looking colour, and a massive head which was very frothy, but it does settle down quick enough to peter out, no real lacing, and ok to look at Lovely taste, really enjoyed drinking this beer, was dead smooth and easy to drink from start to finish, a type of beer to saviour long into the night, excellent. Tasted a lot of malt, also got caramel and toffee Really full of tastes, sweet but not too sweet, and all flavours balanced and drinkable I liked it a lot, a beer that is clean and very smooth. Definitely will be checking out this beer again. Enjoyable and very easy to drink. Recommended..

Pours an amber body with a thin head. Faint hoppy aroma. Nice taste of malt even if it is a bit watery. Very nice subtle bitterness.

Listigovers (856) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 18, 2016
Pours amber with small head. Smells malty, biscuity, sweet bread. Tastes very bready, toasty, light bodied but the maltiness makes it less refreshing. Pretty good.

Amber color, small dissipating head. Very simple malt aroma and flavor, low bitterness; clean; nothing bad with it, just terribly boring.

Amber, clear, frothy white head, little head retention
Aroma of soft spicy hops, hint of citrus
Taste of caramel malt, soft spicy hops, touch of grain, dull
Palate - Medium carb, medium to light body, bit fizzy. Finish is soft bitter, fairly dry, hint of toasty malt
Overall - Less sweet than Brooklyn Lager. Didn’t do a lot for me - found it dull.

Pours a beautiful orange or light bronze, or amber. About one finger tan head. Well carbonated.

Aroma is very malty, lightly toasted. A little nutty. A little caramel and toffee. Subtle, yet complex.

Taste is very malty. Did I mention it was malty? Sweet, but almost cloying, not quite. Enough hops to keep it from being too sweet. Toasted malts shine here. A little nutty, a little caramel. Reminds me a lot of a marzen, but maybe a tad sweeter.

Mouthfeel is light to medium. Dry, super clean finish. Super drinkable. Maybe a tad bitter right at the very end.

Overall, this is great. Much better than I expected. This is a winner. Do try this one!!!
