Devil’s Backbone Vienna Lager
Devil’s Backbone Vienna Lager is available year round and comes in at 5.2% ABV.
This beer pours with and absolutely perfect deep golden color with a big off white head that has outstanding retention. The aroma is exceptionally malt forward with dominate notes of bread and nuts. The taste follows right along with a good bready backbone, some strong caramel malts, hints of toffee, tobacco and grass. The hops are basically not a factor in the taste and aroma. Simply put, this is just good beer!
You just don’t see a bunch of this style brewed these days mainly due to the lockdown Samuel Adams Boston Lager has on the market. There is good reason, however, for this to have won gold and silver several times at GABF and other beer festivals. I really wish this was available here, a perfect go to beer.
