I have extolled the virtues of Full Sail’s LTD series before and it didn’t take much convincing for me to pick up Recipe No. 5 last week.  Not only do I like their lagers, but this Vienna-style was right up my alley.  The only question was, how far off from my previous experience with Vienna-style lagers would it be?  Pre-Portland beer days had me thinking that Negra Modelo was the representation of a Vienna lager with all it’s aggressive sweetness.  Maybe it still is, but this beer was definitely different.  In a good way, I promise.
