A Vienna style Lager with caramel flavor balanced by an earthy German hop aroma. "Smoooooooth!"

i just dont like lagers hmm. It seemed to have some nice sweet malty notes but also a very bland yeasty note too. Minimal hops. Color was just a plain amber head was white with some retenion, a nice mouthfeel. eh

Respectable Vienna-style lager. Some malt sweetness but in a restrained way, making this very repeatable. Moderate hop bite which I liked. A surprisingly nice lager.

Does have a caramel-ish aroma to it. Fairly strong aroma too. Orange/tea colored with a finger thick head. Caramel comes through a again with some hay/grass notes and a lot of marzen characteristics. Strong malt profile. A little sptritzy int he finish despite the mellow maltiness.

Good looking pour, a bright orange body with a creamy three-fingered head. The aroma is a rich caramel with toffee and a smattering of herbal hops bitterness. Smooth to drink, the caramel dominates the flavor with the hops balancing it out in the finish. Very drinkable.

(12 oz bottle: Obtained in trade with bkelley68, thanks Brian!) Another Snake River bottle of beer with volcanic activity on the pour. It took every effort to keep the light-tan, frothy head at only two inches. However, it subsides to a quarter-inch with a few minutes, leaving large chunks of foam on the glass. Deep amber in color with a slight ruddy tint and a thick haze. It smells toasty and lightly sweet, but also fairly fruity and a bit soapy, not horrible though. And fortunately, the flavor is still pretty solid. Itís very toasty and only lightly sweet, with a mild tartness and hoppy bitterness for pleasant balance. The fruit and soap I got in the nose is barely noticeable in the flavor, and in fact, those qualities have faded considerably in the nose as well. What I will say about this Vienna is that it doesnít seem lagerish in any way to me; maybe itís that slight up-front fruitiness that is distracting me, but this beer doesnít even finish with any hints of being a lager. Itís medium bodied, slightly dry, and quite carbonated on the palate, but because itís not really a sweet beer, itís reasonably clean and easy to drink, never tiring out the palate. As I near the end of this session, the beer has still maintained a complete layer of head. Different from most Viennas Iíve had, so I donít know how "to style" it is, but itís quite flavorful and enjoyable enough.

12 oz bottle pours amber with a short white head. Aroma of caramek malt, some peaches and a little bit of light hops. Flavor is of caramel malts, a touch of peat adds some earthiness. It actually finishes slightly bitter. Palate is smooth and easy drinking. Medium bodied. Not bad.. just not a very exciting style.

Light amber in color, small head. Very creamy texture with hints of toasted malt mixed with a little dried apricot. Nice clean finish.

Clear copper appearance, moderate head formation. Nutty, slightly sour fruity aroma. Smooth palate, creamy, nutty, mild chocolate, mild balancing bitterness in the finish. Not my favorite style but a pretty tastey version.

Draught. Pours golden orange with a thin frothy off-white head and excellent spotty lacing. Malt (straw, corn) and yeast (dough) aromas. Bitter malt flavor with faint yeast notes. Light acidic palate.

A good beer with a great flavor. I felt this needed more flavor and maybe more time with the hops. Lagers are tough to brew So I understand the hard work.
