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.

A pretty orange, this is a light beer that is malty but not too much. A decent beer, be great to introduce "bad beer"drinkers to.

JohnnyJ (4539) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 9, 2009
On tap at PP Carlsbad. Clear yellow pour, frothy white head. Sweet malt, biscuits, hint of vegatble, and light hops. Non-offensive, but not to interesting.

Clear brilliant copper under a thin foamy white head. The nose is very biscuity and grainy-earthy. The flavor is a tad bit large and bold for its style, which I have no problem with, but the flavor profile itself is a bit too toast and biscuit for my taste, with amber grains and a lager yeasty finish. A bit doughy sweet throughout.

Exactly what I would expect from a Sierra Nevada Vienna. .. Tawny, squat bottle, nice hopping, malty. Thanks to PorterPounder, enjoyed whilst the Noles snatched the Canes’ presumed victory. 60 minutes of football, MyMammy.

dmac (4204) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - OCT 31, 2014
12oz bottle from Xfroads. Poured a clear clean reddish body with a smaller frothy off beige head. Aroma is old malts, slight toffee and caramel, hint of old oranges. Flavor is the same but seems a bit more malty with more breads and toast. Palate is big, stronger carbontation that lasts and is a bit stingy. Meh

travita (4150) - Frisco, Texas, USA - OCT 2, 2014
Bottle. The look is clear, amber in color, and has a beige colored head. The smell is firm hops, malt, caramel, bread, and dough. The taste is bread, caramel, malt, hops, ok.

emacgee (4138) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - SEP 17, 2011
Clean straw gold pour with one finger of crackling off white head. Nose shows lots of bready toasted malt and a lightly sweet character over notes of herbal hops. Flavor shows lots of toasted grain and bread with a nice spicy hop balance. Medium body and spicy almost dry palate and finish.

vyvvy (4131) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - AUG 19, 2014
Pours clear golden copper with a large white head. The aroma has clean bready malt, light vanilla, light spicy/leafy hops and mild caramel. It has a medium / light rough body with some fairly sharp abrasive carbonation. The flavor starts really dry with crackers, dry caramel, fruitiness (apple / dried apricot sort of thing), spicy hops and herbal notes. The finish has far more of a hoppy presence than most of the style and remains bone dry. This is a beer you could study for subtleties or drink down quick and not thing much about. Enjoyable.

wlajwl (4053) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - SEP 15, 2014
Aroma is caramel, light fruit and malts. The flavor is fruit, caramel, light citrus and a mildly bitter/tart finish. Very easy to drink, among the best in the style.
