Just like you, but different
Change of pace, Schipper’s Herr X Vienna Lager because just because.
Schipper’s Beer Company have this Brewed at Tuatara Brewing Company in the style of an Amber Lager/Vienna and Schippers are in Mt Eden, Auckland, New Zealand, which I never knew, and go to often, so I should pay more attention. Or google them and visit.
A complex but elegant lager with subtle cherry and raisin aromas. 80’s music nerds will be interested to note that Herr X is the B-side of Ultravox’s Vienna.
Vienna lager. Soft sweet spice and soft bitterness. Cocoa and biscuity notes with a hint of a smokey oaky note at the finis
A coat of many colours then, this might be a lager but not as we know it.
Just a hint of sugars as you open this.
Really dark pour! Not at all like a lager. You expect pale yellow fizz, this is the opposite. Nice head great carbonation.
An interesting aroma too. Quite rich.
That’s a cracking drink. Genuinely impressed with this, it’s refreshing and clean, but also has a thing and a thing going on that makes it quite interactive.
It’s dark tasting, Try it you’ll get it, it is a taste that you don’t expect but is very familiar and welcome, and has an interesting mouthfeel, and a palate this is of biscuit and … fruit in some way.
The pdubyah-o-meter rates this as 7.5 a of its things from the thing.
The double dip review
Of course you can’t go past Ultravox – Herr X and I danced and I got the look from MrsPdubyah so I foot danced instead. Still Awesome.
Given this name because the style was developed around Vienna, Austria. A light to medium body, with a malty aroma. Beers produced and labeled as Marzen or Oktoberfest are likely to be of the Vienna Lager style.
