Vienna lagers, named after the city they were originally brewed in, has become a classic style of lager but one rarely brewed in the UK. Thornbridges take on the style is Kill Your Darlings which is reddish brown in colour with a medium body and characterized by a malty aroma and slight malt sweetness. A twist on this style has been added by late hopping with Amarillo and Tettnanger hops. After a period of cold fermentation the beer has been lagered for five weeks. We have done the waiting so that you can enjoy the crisp fresh flavours and in our opinion this is a beer best drunk as fresh as possible says Brewery Production Director, Rob Lovatt.

MoritzF (9803) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - MAY 8, 2017
(bottle) Clear, dark amber colour with a beige medium-sized foamy head. Toasty malty aroma with notes of caramel, shades of molasses, as if it was a diluted dark Bock, backed by delicately grassy and spicy hops. Delicately bitter and slightly sweet flavour, medium to light bodied with a modest carbonation. Toasted malt character with caramel, shades of dark cacao powder and notes of spicy and slightly grassy hops towards the moderately dry bitter-sweet finish. Solid Vienna Lager. 08.VI.17

LazyPyro (982) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 11, 2016
500ml bottle. Clear dark amber brown colour with a small beige head lasting only a minute or so. Aroma of dark malt, lots of dark fruits. Tastes like a strong lager, really nice malty flavour, caramel, fruits, some hops too, bit of spice. Nice bitter finish. Medium body. Not a style Id usually go for but I quite liked this.
