Bottle. Pours clear and flat amber with spare fizzy off-white diminishing head, spare lacing. Aroma is average malt (bread, grain, straw, cereal), light hops (herbs, grass), average yeast (sweat, horse blanket) with notes of alcohol, pineapple, butter and vegetable. Short duration, light sweetness, moderate bitterness and acidity; rather husky flavor. Light bodied, oily texture, soft carbonation and metallic finish.

(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.

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.

The aroma was light fermented fruit, flowers, slight citrus, slight tea and toasted nuts. The flavor was toasted nuts, slight tea, citrus, flowers. The beer poured a golden brown color w/ orange, red, and yellow highlights; thin lasting head and lacing. The mouthfeel was creamy and light bodied w/ a wet finish.

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.

*did not mind would not buy* aroma: faint smell of incense and stew. . like a hippie kitchen. app: like whiskey. flavor: like a very very light brown ale. lil toasty flavors. a floral pale ale brown ale with lotsa water. palate: watery. OA: fine water filled beer, neat peppery finish. I think this would be more intresting and just as healthy to drink as water.. 8 glasses a day.

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

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.
