True to its origins, our reproduction of the classic Vienna Lager style is rich in toasted malt flavour and balanced with clean hop bitterness and a subtle hop bouquet. A sophisticated Lager for those who demand more.

donfardz64 (538) - Wellington, New Zealand, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 26, 2008

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 3, 2008
Bottle, poured a dark copper with a large foamy light brown head. Sweet caramal malt aroma, a little oaky. A very sweet palate, the toasted malt exhibiting both caramal and nutty flavours. The hops increase in the finish, with a little bit of spice and bitterness. A pretty well put together Vienna Lager.

OJB (39) - Dunedin, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 20, 2007
The colour was medium-strong red-orange amber, and there was a fairly strong creamy head. There was strong carbonation. The aroma showed strong toasted malt and light hop bitterness. The taste showed strong toasty malt, light spice, and a bitter hop finish. This was quite a strong, fairly complex style.

bozoNZ (719) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 5, 2007
500ml bottle from Halswell New World bb 9/11/07. Dryish malty dusty nose. Nice amber, faintly cloudy. Fair head. Well carbonated which probably takes away some of the initial flavour. Mid hop dryness thru to the finish. Reasonable but a little soda-ish

roboequator (17) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 31, 2006
500 ml from Regional Wines. Amber to brown colour. Lovely malt aromas, candy apple, toasted malts. Good balanced flavour bitterness coming through rich maltiness. On warming malt sweetness was a little too strong.

beerledgend (1197) - Waterloo, Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 29, 2006

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 13, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 15, 2007 Retasted 15/03/2007. Slight haze. Pungent caramel. Quite astringent - hot in the throat on lingering in the mouth. Grain or sparge problems? Everything else similar to below. Dropped from 3 to 2.7. Tasted 13/08/2006. 500ml bottle from Island Bay New World. Burnished gold, bright, with a lightly lacing white head. Caramel and lemonade on the nose, with a musty background note of mealy red apples. Toasty malt and grassy bitterness dominate the mouth, with a lingering herbal hop note. Carbonic dryness doesn’t allow everything through. A little lacking in malt sweetness and slightly over-hopped but a fairly pleasant easy drinking beer.
