Coal Harbour Brewing – Vienna Lager Review

The Coal Harbour Vienna Lager has a thin head topping the golden-straw coloured brew. the head settles quickly giving off a smooth malted aroma with just a kiss of honey. The taste of this small batch lager is quite nice. It starts off crisp with german malt and settles into a light hop finish giving a touch of bitterness. THis beer doesn’t have the drawn out malt notes that can make a lager seem redundant and sometimes stale. This tastes fresh, crisp and leaves a neutral palate ready for another taste. As far as traditional german style lagers go this is a winner. It may be hard to find but if you see this unassuming bottle at your local craft retailer grab a bottle or three; it is worth it.

    Very crisp and smooth. Overall, a great beer but it just didn’t do it for me. A little too much on the sour side.
