The style? A Vienna Lager
Details? This lager is made for the cooler months. Light amber color, and an ABV closing in on 6%. As always, this is an Oskar Blues-spin on the Vienna Lager, taking the traditional to the contemporary, and mutating the beer into our own species.
Description? Loads of Vienna malt and a touch of Dark Crystal malt give a nice caramel biscuit maltiness. A blend of Hersbucker, Saaz, and Hallertauer in the kettle, and a big helping of Hallertauer in the whirlpool give it a nice spicy and earthy Noble Hop whammy!
