Viennese Lager
(Bohemian Brewery)

One of two lagers that Bohemian is currently canning (the other being their Czech Pilsner). This "Viennese Lager" is actually a Märzen/Oktoberfest style brew as it is darker in color and sweeter in taste compared to actual Viennese Lagers. Very few craft breweries focus solely on lagers and I am pretty sure that Bohemian is the only one of those that is canning their beers. 


From the Bohemian Brewery site:


"Our full bodied amber colored lager is a result of combining our fine Pils malt with more darkly roasted malt to brew what has become our most popular beer. Slightly more hoppy than our other beers with a very clean and crisp finish. This beer is hard to put down."

Here we go...


Pour - nice dark amber or golden in color with about a half inch of bubbly white head. Reminds me of the color of autumn.


Aroma - grainy malt, like sticking your head right in the fermentation tank. Some flavors of bread dough, yeast and caramel also come to mind.


Taste - sharp on the tongue, like a malt whip setting the stage. This dark amber lager has lots of malt flavor up front followed by some apple and caramel sweetness. I'm loving the way the carbonation makes each sip very crisp and refreshing. The grainy flavor I smelled is very apparent once this hits the lips. If you like an all-grain lager brewed with heart and soul than this is for you. Solid, straightforward and superb. 


Overall - smooth, crisp and malty. Pretty light on the tongue and very well-balanced. Excellent lager with plenty of flavor from start to finish.


Would I buy more of it? - absolutely. This is another winner from the good folks in Midvale, Utah! 


Note - thanks goes out to Bohemian Brewery for hooking me up with samples of both of their canned offerings. I really appreciate your generosity and enjoyed both beers immensely.
