Named for the city that created the style, our amber lager is malt forward with a grassy, crackery hop aroma. A classic blend of German malts and hops gives this complex lager notes of biscuit and caramel in its finish.

Poured from a 12 oz. can into a nonic pint glass. Color is a light amber with a 2 finger tan head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is a light caramel malt. Taste is of a mellow malt and biscuit with very little sweetness. Very light carbonation. Overall, a very easy drinking Vienna lager. Would definitely seek out again.

My favorite of their beers that are available in the Pittsburgh(PA.)area.
Not quite as thick as Great lakes Elliot Ness, which is an old favorite but, good enough and more of a session beer, as far as I am concerned.
(for the Vienna Amber style).

I bought a Von Trapp sampler pack, which is always a good way to be introduced to a new brewery. I'd never had any of their stuff since I don't live in New England, but the mix was pretty good so I decided to give it a go. First one up was their Vienna Lager, and it's very good. I liked the sweetness on the back end, but didn't really get the grassy aroma on the front end, which was fine with me. This is a style that might be starting to make a comeback and I'm a fan of this version.

On tap.

A - Dark gold colored pour with light carbonation and a thin, frothy white head.

S - Very light caramel malt.

T - Nice biscuity light malt base with minimal citrus bitterness. However, the bitterness starts to build after the sip.

M - Medium body with light carbonation.

O - Easy drinking and could see this as a beer fridge staple.

It's an alright swill. Nothing memorable about it. Will do on a hot summer day.

It does have a pleasant light amber color though. Smell, taste, aroma - near non-existent.
