The World, Just As It Is
Alc Vol. 5.0%
Vienna Lager is a style with a long history - pre-dating all other pale lager beers - but one that very nearly died out. We're glad it didn't, as the rich, elegant malt profile, and the balance between subtle sweetness and crisp bitterness create a lager that's at once complex yet easy-drinking. Our own twist comes from the use of a New Zealand hop varietal known for bright citrus and marmalade flavours.
The Brew Sheet
Alcohol by Volume (a measure of booziness created by the yeast)
Beer styles are the categorisation of beer into easily distinguishable types. When doing this we look at history, colour, carbonation, bitterness, ingredients, mouthfeel… the list goes on
We'd typically use a lightly kilned Base Malt in a beer recipe, then add Speciality malts (sometimes darker, more complex, different flavours) in small quantities to change the overall taste and colour of the beer.
Hops are used in loads of ways, and they can give different characteristics to beer such as Aroma and Bitterness– this is why they rock!
