Vienna / Amber Lager928 beers | 3.186 Avg Score
The Vienna lager originated in the Vienna, Austria area and is of an amber to copper or even reddish brown color. They are medium-bodied malty (toasted or light roasted features) beers with only a mild sweetness, a lightly bitterred hop balance, and a somewhat dry finish. Vienna lagers are lighter than dunkel lagers and the flavors not as rich as those of a Marzen. Amber lagers are a global extension of this style and represent similar lagers but with a more variety of interpretation, including vast degrees of malting and hopping, the addition of caramel flavors, and more overall sweetness that is sometimes derived from the inclusion of non-malt adjuncts like corn and rice.
