Moody Ales Vienna Lager BottleMoody Ales – Vienna Lager Review

Moody Ales has again brewed up a delightful take on an uncommon style.  The Vienna Lager pours from the bomber bottle a clear, copper with one to two fingers of light brown, lasting head.  The light foam leaves plenty of lacing behind in the glass as it dissipates.  Nutty aromas exude from the glass, followed by toasted malts and light herbal hops.  In the mouth the beer is malt forward – unexpected for a typical lager but in this beer the dark colour portends things to come.  The beer is bready with some caramel notes, coupled with subtle grassy tones and a hint of sweetness that is quickly cleaned away by the crisp finish.  The Vienna Lager is very smooth drinking with a finish that is crisp and dry.  While uncommon for a lager, the malty nature of the beer adds significant depth of flavour.
