An amber style lager as popular as waltzing in Vienna during the 1800’s and like waltzing Vienna lager is renowned for its elegance, delicacy and balance. The style died out almost everywhere except Mexico until the expanding American craft beer industry revitalised this beer into a hit. Our style balances the sweetness of Vienna and dark Munich malts with the full flavour of Bavarian Noble hops. It has a soft creamy mouthfeel and a lively but gentle carbonation; it finishes with a touch of dryness. This is the quintessential amber lager.
