Very clear amber in color. Thin head but left a decent lacing as it went down. Some caramel and lightly roasted malts in the nose. Taste is a bit neutral and bland though. Also mouthfeel is on the thin side for a Vienna.

Decent balance of malt and hop. Also picked up some astringency. Finish is too dry and lifeless. Although this is drinkable, it could be a lot better.

I was told this was a good beer and it was not too bad. Has a dry taste to it. The appearence looks good and has a nice aroma

12 0z bottle pours. The aroma is disappointing and taste is just not that good. I will not buy any more of this.

Great, easy drinking lager. Had this on a business trip to Minneapolis. I remember a cherry aftertaste, but not too overwhelming.

Had on Northwest Airlines. Pleasant compared to other Amber Lagers. A little more bite than I prefer.

Bottle. Iíve been a big fan of this beer both before and after it was brewed by James Page (now defunct) -- I had one recently and it tasted about the same. I think itís something of a hybrid between an amber ale and a Vienna -- itís darker and has more hop accents than a straight Vienna, but itís not as dark as a true amber. A nice beer with excellent flavor and balance.

This looks like it shouldnít be good - the appearance is more like pop than beer. But the Iron Range lager has a rich flavor, a lot of sweetness, and a great aftertaste. THe only beer worth drinking on Northwest Airlines flights!

Bottle. Red-orange in color with a small, quickly fading head. Malty sweet taste and aroma. Light and thin overall.
