3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the Lake Hotel Restaurant in Yellowstone. Pour a cloudy, light brown color, with a small, beige head. The aroma is mild caramel, with some smooth earthy notes and cinnamon. Sweet and malty, with a bit of bitterness, lending it a smooth, balanced and easy flavor. Light to medium body, crisp, grainy, and clean. This is a solid Vienna lager, and well made. Nothing crazy, just goes down easily and pleasantly.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from can into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a clear copper-amber color with a two finger head of white foam. The head fades moderately fast leaving a bit of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the brew is strongest of a bready smell mixed with a strong showing of caramel. Along with these smells comes some smells of hay and grass and a hint of harvest fruit.
Taste – The taste begins with a nice caramel and lightly toasted bready flavor mixed with a little bit of harvest fruit. While strong upfront, the caramel gets even more potent as the taste moves forward, bringing on more and more sweetness. A bit of an herbal and molasses taste come at the very end, leaving one with a sweet, but smooth bready taste on the tongue.
Mouthfeel-The body of the beer is slightly thicker then I was anticipating for a brew of only 4.8 % abv. (although not too thick) with a carbonation level that was rather average. For the mix of bready and sweet, with the light roasted tastes, the feel is fantastic and makes for a flavorful brew.
Overall – I rather enjoyed this beer. It was flavorful and easy drinking all with a very modest abv. of 4.8 % .

Appearance - the body is a clean mahogany, with a little nucleation. The head is around 1 1/2" and beige in color, and the head settles quickly. Nice lacing.
Taste - caramel malt and very subtle hops.
Palate - medium body, smooth texture, carbonation is average, and mellow finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Crusty big bubble head takes a while to die down.. clear orange brew.
Clean malts are the lion’s share of the aroma.. toasted more than caramel.
Flavor is very fresh... inviting.. very smooth and drinkable.. toasted malts with a low earthy hop presence.. Great body for the style and again.. drinkable for days.
Everyone loves Zonker, but the Vienna lager is my favorite Snake River brew.
