Utopian, Vienna Keller, Lager, 4.8%
Brewery: Utopian Brewing
Style: Vienna Lager
Vienna Lager was a revelation when it was first brewed in the mid 19th century, combining Bavarian brewing techniques, with paler British style malts. A once nearly forgotten style, our Vienna Keller Lager pays homage to those early beers. We used a traditional decoction mash with British grown Vienna and Munich malts, lending the beer depth and complexity. A slow, cold fermentation, followed by 5 weeks of lagering has resulted in a beer which is as easy drinking as it is flavourful. Copper in colour, a rich bready aroma, rounded out by a crisp bittersweet finish.
