COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

500ml bottle. Pours bronzed amber with a loose off white head. Nose of toasted sweet malts with distinct marmalade notes. Nice clean palate with similar flavours and a mild hop bitterness. Easy drinking. A good example of the style.

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.

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

A lightly malted lager which is nice and clean. Good length (for a 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.

UPDATED: APR 2, 2010 Aaahh, the good old Vienna Lager. I wonder how many people have really tried a true Vienna Lager? This is a nice beer, well made, and would go quite nicely with a bratwurst.
