An amber colored Vienna-style lager with a distinctive Munich malt character and full body.Noble European hops offset the sweet malty character of this beer, giving a complex flavor and superb drinkability

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Good copper lager. Apparently I need more characters in this review. Fucken hell.

Bottle: Poured a copper orange color with a thin off white to tan head. Aroma is sweet a little butterscotch. Taste is nice mix of hops and sweet malts, finish is a bit gritty.

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.

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.

12 oz. bottle from La Bodega in Anchorage; clear dark amber with trace off-white head; aromas of stale candy malts, white sugar and a little orange; mild sticky mouthfeel coating the teeth with stale malt and honey; thin and light; blah

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

12oz bottle brought back from La Boddega. Pours a clear bright golden amber with a small tight head. Sweet honey and caramel malt, crisp grass with light cracker on the back. Taste is as the nose suggests...light honey, cracker malt and grassy hops...however, there is this unpleasant skunkiness on the end that isn’t working for me. Too bad, other wise a decent little lager.
