Bottle. Poured a clear copper color with an inch and a half thick, frothy off-white head that faded to a bubbly ring and left a good amount of lacing. Malty aroma with hints of toasted grain, cereal, light caramel, sweet nuts, and a faint earthy hoppiness. Smooth, sweet entry with some caramel and a touch of brown sugar leads into a lightly spicy, toasted maltiness that is offset by a very light, dry bitter hoppiness that subsides quickly, leaving a light caramel sweetness lingering in the finish. Moderate carbonation and average mouth feel. Overall, this is a simple, smooth beer that is really easy to drink. Itís simplicity without being dull make for an enjoyable beer.

Sorta blah beer, seems to fit the Vienna lager style but it's not very exciting. Sorta sweet -but that is a characteristic of the Vienna malt style.

Summer 2011 - The second brewery on our day of touring Ft. Collins beer scene was Fort Collins. Although in the smaller side (and without much of the identifying ethos that OíDell and New Belgium ooze) it packed a few gems. In between them were the middling beers, and the Edgar Lager Amber was one of those. My first note remarked on the happiness. Or, as I wrote, "Hella hoppy for a lager." Cashew and a sort of aged pilsner taste permeate the brew, but then drop off suddenly leaving the flavor of mineral water. Not my ideal start to a line up of beers.

Here I am going nuts again... within the past month Iíve suddenly been the kindest rater on earth compared to the averages...the prior 2 years Iíve rated far below the averages! This beer poured a coppery amber color with a mildly thick white head which left a nice degree of lacing....3 maybe a 4 on appearance. The aroma is sweet and malty with a hint of hoppy grassiness and a touch of mandarin and nectar and a pinch of cinnamon! The flavor is very mild, mildly carbonated and heavily malted. Iíve had lagers and viennaís in my time and this is incredibly drinkable. The pure idea of a session beer is this beer. Thick malty backbone, but mildly light in taste, no hops in the finish. Dry malty finish, some hints of nectar fruits in the beginning, but really very light and dry. Call me crazy again but I liked it. It may be incredibly one-sided in its maltiness, but it tasted sweet and very fresh, I canít complain!

Pours a murky amber with a small head. I always get annoyed when raters throw out 20 different aromas they smell in each beer. Yea right! When I saw cooked vegetable aroma for this one I started to get annoyed again. Well, I poured this beer and took a smell.... Time to eat crow now. Yep. They were correct. I smelled vegetable. This is not a bad thing. Also sort of malty. Overall it is not a very bad beer.

Copper color with a medium off white head and a little bit of carbonation. Pale aroma with a hint of caramel. Malty body with a rich, roasted flavor, a trace of caramel and a dry finish. Taste is sweet and slightly fruity.

Reddish tan, big fluffy off white head. Malty note, hints of biscuits. Well balanced, very flavorfull. Iíd call this a darn good vienna.

UPDATED: NOV 28, 2006 Nice amber color, but I wish the off-white head would have lasted longer. Some of the remaining head does glide down the side of the glass after each drink, though, and that boosted the appearance score. Semi-sweet, toasted malt aroma and flavor. Very mild caramel finish. A pleasure to drink.

Pours a clear light amber with small white head. Faint aromas of yeast, caramel, bread, some earthy hops. Taste had the same earthy hops, biscuit, and caramel malt sweetness as the aroma with the addition of strange notes of cardamom and fennel. Medium mouthfeel, dry finish.

Had this on our bike/brew tour, so this rating will be expanded on the next go-round.
