COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

On draft at the Pumphouse in Fairbanks AK (donít go to this restaurant by the way). Reddish amber with a thin head and very light caramel beer not unlike a light bodied Vienna. Kinda boring but well done.

Nice overall beer. Good color and good aroma. Not a huge lager fan, but this one was on that I could drink reguarly.

Clear copper body with a large, fluffy head. Light malty aroma. Full, malty body is toast and a little caramel. Low bitterness. Slightly creamy body. Excellent lager.

UPDATED: JUL 17, 2005 Pours with a dark copper, amber color and a decent head. Taste is very fresh and malty, though with fair bitterness not sweet. Itís one of those lagers that ale drinkers like.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 6, 2005
Pours with a deep amber body topped by a medium thick head with some lacing. The aroma is slightly sweet and malty with a slight caramel note and a slight bitterness. The flavor is slightly sweet and malty with a toasted nut note, a touch of caramel and a slight underlying bitterness. Light to medium bodied, smooth and a touch dry.

asheft (2441) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 5, 2005
[on tap somewhere in the Alaskan interior] Clear, dark copper with a flimy white cover that doesnít last long. Caramely diacetyl/butterscotch aroma with just a hint of citrusy hops and tobacco and raisin notes. The flavour is caramel and raisin right away, followed by a dusty, sweet malt and then some noble hops. Low bitterness and almost a clean finish. Light to medium body and medium carbonation.

Toast, carmel, grain, and grass nose. White head on a copper body. Big carmel and toffy flavors backed by fresh milled malt, grass, and hay. Finishes with white bread and toffee. Simple and solid.

sample from bottle. Burnt, toasty, carmel nose. Clean brownish orange color. Toasted malt, carmel, yeasty flavors. Thin body sweet finish. Didnít wow me, just ok

Aubrey (3417) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - JUL 7, 2004
Medium amber in color. Definitely on the malty side of things. Decent bitterness, but not enough in my book. Nevertheless, it was clean and easy-drinking without any off-flavors to complain about. And it actually had some flavor to it. Kind of surprised me a little.

Boring - tasted like it was trying to be Sam Adams Lager and Alaskan Amber at the same time. Did have a nice look to it -- amber with a firm white head, medium malty taste, but I just couldnít get over the lack of character.
