Style: Vienna Lager
 
Style Information
Vienna Lager is a lager style that was originated in Vienna, Austria. The color should be medium red-brown to copper. There should be an obvious malt sweetness in both aroma and taste. Hop presence should be low. Mouthfeel should be clean and crisp. ABV should also be somewhat low.

From Wikipedia:

"Vienna lager is a style of lager beer. It was developed by brewer Anton Dreher in Vienna in 1841. Its popularity in Europe eventually faded, but Austrian brewers who emigrated to Mexico revived the style in the late 19th century.

The Association of Brewers defines the beer class Vienna lager as a reddish brown or copper colored beer with medium body and slight malt sweetness. The malt aroma and flavor may have a toasted character. Hop bitterness should be clean and crisp. Noble-type hop aroma and flavor should be low or mild. As with most lagers, fruitiness due to esters is a defect. Diacetyl, which can impart a butterscotch aroma and flavor, should not be perceptible."
