Style: Vienna Lager

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.80%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
This true to style Vienna Lager, brewed with Vienna malt, noble hops and classic European brewing methods, delivers an authentic taste and complex flavour profile. King Vienna is an amber coloured, medium bodied beer with an exquisite palate, complimented by a gentle creaminess and slight malt sweetness. The enticing toasted malt nose and gentle hop flavour rival the world’s very best Vienna Lagers.

It finishes with amazing toffee malt flavour and crisp bitterness that dries smoothly on your palate without becoming too sweet.

Fresh bottle from brewery:

Decants as a clear deep amber with orange highlights. Creamy 3 finger cap that laces well. Well carbonated.

Nose is rich in toasty-bready Vienna malts, little detectable sweetness, some earthy-woody noble hop tones ,nice fresh aroma and true to style.

Medium bodied smooth mouth feel clean malty character.

Taste profile is on style as well...bready-toasty wiith very light sweeness in front, hops sit back, mid palate the noble hops give off heir earthy woody bittering as the clean finish dries right out and provides a small hop bite in the end.

A very good (true to style) rendition of the Vienna style, the first we have in the Ontario market at least. With a few minor tweeks this would be on par with Great Lakes Eliot Ness.

Satisfying, quenching yet flavorful with a decent malt discernment and hop bite....this is a keeper. Hope it''s not just a one off.
