Vienna Lager

A clean, crisp Vienna-style, Okie lager packing a perfect blend of malty sweetness and biting snark. From watching a football game with friends to poking fun at Oklahoma politicians in your mom's basement, it's the perfect Autumn beer for the obscure local social blogger inside all of us.

This Vienna lager pours an amber color with clear clarity and a compact head of tight white bubbles that persist during the entire beer. In the aroma, a diacetyl note is prominent in the nose and blends with the malt-rich aromatics of Vienna malt creating a noticeable butterscotch and caramel aroma. No hop aroma is noticeable. The malt flavor is moderate-low with a toasty character. The diacetyl blends with the malt notes giving a buttered toast flavor mid-swallow. Moderate-low hop bitterness keeps the beer balanced but with no noticeable hop flavor. The finish is crisp and dry despite, however after the swallow a slickness is left on the tongue and back of the throat from the diacetyl. A medium-light body and an intermittent carbonation give the beer a smooth and creamy feel in the mouth. Overall, this particular batch suffered from an issue with diacetyl off-flavors, which unfortunately overshadowed the qualities of the beer. Those qualities that were distinguishable were on the mark for the style, but overall this beer succumbed to the problematic technical issue.
