3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Grumbler purchase from Breeze-IN, Juneau AK.
This was poured into a pilsener.
The appearance was a nice hazy dark bronze to caramel brown color. A one finger white foamy head lasted for a good thirty seconds before gently dieing. The lacing formed a glossed over semi - thick coating.
The smell had a rich dark nutty caramel maltiness running in and out of a light toffee. Crisp noble hops play softly upon my nose.
The taste was mainly sweet malty caramel covered nuts. There’s a lingering nutty to caramel aftertaste leading into a watery caramel finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a good sessionability about it. The carbonation was good for the style and for me. There’s a nice rich smooth and somewhat sticky caramel maltiness rolling over my tongue.
Overall, for the style this is definitely up to par in fact I think I’d rather have this before a SA Boston Lager. Thank you Silver Gulch for sending another one down here.

Very surprising flavor and drinkability for a small town Alaskan beer. Heavy duty bottling gives the beer an even better appearance and stays true to it's Alaskan rustic lines.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep amber and copper coloured body with a thin off-white head. Aroma of caramel and pit fruits, a little malt and a bunch of metal and grapes - interesting. Light-bodied; Sharp malty and lightly nutty flavour at first with a lingering metallic note and some very mild hop flavours near the end. Aftertaste shows some cardboard maltiness, a touch of grapes and a little pit fruit flavours. Overall, an okay beer and interesting for the style - a lot of malt present and a good bit of caramel and metal coming together for the flavours. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from La Bodega in Anchorage, Alaska on 26-June-2010 sampled at home before leaving for Hawaii on 03-March-2011 in Washington.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured quite a dark amber with a small, off-white head. Notes of light malt and cereal/biscuit. Quite a sweet malt presence in the body and across the back of the palate as you swallow. I surprisingly heavy body to it with a medium sweetness. Fizzy carbonation and a long finish produce an overall mediocre beer. Feels a little too heavy to be a lager, but so it is. I’m devoted to the brewery because I adore the Fairbanks area. Try this beer if you can but it is not your typical lager.

Very dark for a Vienna. Taste is pleasant, but dryish lager aftertaste. Rated 8/13/02
