This was one of my first lagers and it was one of 3 kegs that kicked during my open brewhouse. It was clear as a bell. Very good.

Did you do anything different? I think I'd cut back to 50% vienna next time.

I just recently made an all Vienna California Lager beer. Not quite the same, but similar. It is the first time I had used Vienna in any kind of quantity. I am surprised at how malty this beer came out. The color is beautiful amber red and the malt profile is great. It almost has a roastiness to it. If I were to re-do it, I don't think I would go 100% but the maltiness/mild roastiness of Vienna is very very tasty IMO.

Now that sounds more my speed, even if the pils was MO. I'm not saying the mostly Vienna bill was bad but it takes half a pint for me to get used to how sharp the malt flavor is. Maybe sharp is a bad word. In any case, I think scaling it back to 30-40% of the bill would be good.

It was rather malty-nutty.

I'll probably pine for it later.

Bump.. If you can believe it, I just had a pint of this Vienna Lager that was brewed all the way back in Nov 07 on Teach a Friend day. I had kind of neglected it for the last few months because I had plenty of other beers on tap that I liked more. It finally hit the sweet spot though. I don't know if I screwed it up or what but it just didn't taste right. I chalked it up to just too much Vienna by %. It really tastes amazing and smooth now after 8 months of lagering. No, I know you don't have the patience for this but if you have 20 kegs, give it a shot.
