WAAAAAY old, but digging this one up.
I think I read somewhere recently that some EU versions of Vienna Lager actually finish a little higher than our native US versions. So as long as you're not too high on the FG, you should be still within style.
Heck, just looked it up...the BJCP states: American versions can be a bit stronger, drier and more bitter, while European versions tend to be sweeter.
Many Mexican amber and dark lagers used to be more authentic, but unfortunately are now more like sweet, adjunct-laden American Dark Lagers.
