OTTAWA, ON – While the weather in Ottawa isn’t exactly spring-like, the Clocktower Brew Pub has decided to take the optimistic route and release its annual spring seasonal brand despite the continuing cold conditions.
Vienna Spring Ale is a 5% abv hybrid style that is based on the classic Vienna Lager style but is brewed as an ale. The result has the following notes:
The color is a light orange almost golden. It has a pleasant citrus aroma of the nose with hints of caramel. At first taste, the flavors present as citrus and slightly earthy however, a small bit of roast or caramel may appear as well. The bitterness is similar to the ESB, but much more subdued. The Vienna contains a unique after taste; it is a flavour that is similar to biscuits or sweet bread. The after taste lingers in the mouth for a moment and then subsides. The body of this beer is very light with high carbonation making it a very refreshing beer.
Vienna Spring Ale is on tap now at all four Clocktower locations in Ottawa.
