3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to timmcd64: Pours a clear copper amber with a thin, wispy-lacing white head. Authentic aroma of lightly sweet toasty caramel and Munich malts and noble hops. Body starts lightly sweet and grainy with a touch of mild bitterness before a smooth finish. A pretty good and drinkable Vienna.

Pours light amber with a slight head and super slight lacing. Very under carbonated. Slight smells of malts and light hops. Weak flavor not worth my time or money.

The Silver Gulch Brewing Company is located in Fairbanks, Alaska and produces some very good beers that rival those of the Midnight Sun Brewing Company and the Alaskan Brewing Company. This one is no exception.

(12 oz bottle) I donít remember where I bought this bottle -- somewhere out in the middle of nowhere in Alaska -- but itís a good one. While thereís no doubt that this amber lager is mildly sweet and caramely, Iím really liking that this beer isnít nearly as sweet and caramely as many in this category, and so the toasty maltiness is able to shine under the spotlight of center stage. Iíd say thereís even a very slight tartness to help keep the beer balanced and clean. The nose is quite toasty, and the sweetness is even less of a factor than it is in the flavor. Itís medium bodied, perfectly carbonated, and dry and clean on the palate, so this is something I could easily drink multiple bottles of without getting sick of the flavor or experiencing palate fatigue. Deep orange-amber body is also quite hazy, and itís capped by a small, light-tan head that leaves no lacing as it settles to a broken filmy layer. Very tasty, very drinkable, quite enjoyable. I just might have to bring back more when I visit Alaska again.

Darkest lager Iíve ver seen (maybe that makes it a Vienna?) Sweet, a little hoppy, but a worthy brew from Americaís northernmost brewery.
