Samuel Adams Vienna Lager

Boston Beer Co

USA

Vienna lagers are typically darker than standard pilsners, but not black and roasted like dunkels. Overall, a little heartier, if you're looking to get away from the straw-colored beers that your buddy Dave drinks at Trivia Night. This fits the bill pretty nicely, from my experience. Funny, though, in checking their website, they don't list a Vienna, which makes me wonder how old this sample was (I bought it out of the Singles bin at my local retailer). Oh well, it was good, and as long as it was pasteurized, I'm not likely to get sick.
