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.

pours a lovely shade of dark amber, with flecks of red glinting in the background, topped with firm white head. The aroma was grass, mild herbs and some lemon in the mix. Taste was toasty with a firm caramel sweetness all balanced with an unobtrusive hop bite, medium bodied and far too easy to drink (4 mouthfuls did the trick!).

This was poured into a pilsener. The appearance was a nice golden bronzed slightly amber color with a slight transparency about it. Carbonation was seen rising at a nice pace. A one finger white foamy head appears and dissipates within about a minute. The smell had a nice roasted nuttiness about it with a smooth caramel and toffee upon it. The taste was mainly sweet with a rolling nuttiness opening up on my taste buds. Lingering nutty to caramel aftertaste leading into a dry nutty finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a light sessionability about it. The carbonation seems good for the style and for me. Overall, mmmm....good Vienna Lager I’d have again and personally I think this would go great with pepperoni pizza.

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.

bottle-from the Sierra nevada Fall Pack september 2014 Pours bright light amber hue with a nice eggshell white head and sparse lacing. nice looking brew. Nose is mostly lite spicy hops, caramel, toasted grains, bread/biscut notes. Flavors are toasted malt grains (pale, caramel, pils), lite spicy hops and some nice lite woody notes. A very solid offering from this pack. I am not a huge amber lager fan but this fits the bill perfect! crisp, lite and refreshing with alot of lager character. Excellent!

12oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours a clear medium hopper with a half finger off-white head. Just ok head retention and lacing but average for the style. Aroma is quite fruity with swirls of toffee and caramel. A quick hit of grassy hops followed by some more fruit. The flavor continues the fruit and grass theme. It is almost a grape/watermelon thing mixed with hay. Sweet caramel follows and provides a nice base. Bitterness is fairly high for the style but it is crisp. Overall, a great shot at a Vienna from Sierra Nevada. A little hoppier and fruitier than most others in the style but it works well here.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. Pours with a brilliant clarity. Bready sweet maltiness aroma with subtle fruitiness. The flavor is bready, there is a hop presence that is noticeable, but not overwhelming.
