Delicious! Tasty, but smooth drinking lager from a remarkable small town brewery.

Excellent malty character in true vienna lager style. Color was a bit light and slightly cloudy but that's not any big deal. I'm just nitpicking...it could be prettier is all.

Yes sir, I liked it. I liked it a whole bunch. Color of amber but with a nice hazy brown tint along with a nice, off-white head that was pretty thick and frothy. Smell is lightly hinted but so good and fresh. Had a nice caramel malt and hop presence, it was soft on the nose and very pleasing. Sip, slurp, ahhhh. So good, great medium body feel and tight with flavor. Smooth toasty malt with just the right touch of hop bitterness, but the malt is left to really stand out. Everything comes together so nicely. The finish is a touch sweet, very nicely done. Toasty fresh, robust,and flavorful, packed nicely with a 6% punch. This is one awesome Vienna style beer, one of the best I've ever had the pleasure of drinking. Very drinkable and enjoyable. Highly recommend picking some up if ever in Jackson Hole,Wyoming.

Deep copper in color. Light, but attractive hop aroma. Medium to full bodied--attractive on the tongue. Flavor is caramelly sweet, but nicely balanced. Well done.

cloudy butterscotch color, phlegmatic head. some residual head clung to the side of my glass like tiny barnacles. this was my hometown brew for years, and from the tap i considered it edgy and brash. now, far from the shadows of the tetons, i finally rate a bottle. the distance has mellowed it a bit--tho perhaps too much ’cause there’s also a note of very slight sourness. otherwise: spicy applesauce woody, wheat bread, autumn grasses and drying flowers. easy smooth palate, adequate bitter finish. not as sweet as a great lakes elliot ness. almost a "grand" beer--and that’s not a term we use lightly in the environs of the grand teton.

UPDATED: OCT 17, 2007 Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy medium amber, unfiltered. Aroma is moderately malty (caramel, cookie, toasted bread), moderately hoppy (flowers, apricot), with notes of peach, mango chutney, and tangerine. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. This bottle’s back on target, and has always been one of Snake River’s best bottled beers by far. A very fruity example indeed. The brilliance of this beer just might depend on its age, though, it’s hard to say...all these fruity aromas might only come out after shelf time (they’re unfiltered, and thus may still be creating fermentation effects).

Golden-caramel color, hint of some spice (cinnamon-nutmeg?) in the nose. Slight lacing, very smooth. A little bit of malty sweetness going on at the finish. Nice session beer.

Aroma is fruity, color is cloudy amber. Thin pour which produces little head. Citrus flavor with a spicy aftertaste. I don’t understand all of the bad ratings that this beer got. I thought it was a fine Vienna.

Keeping in mind that it was preternaturally hot and dry when I was sampling this, the huge maltiness of this brew turned me off after a bit. It is powerful, rich, toasty stuff, and I’d possibly love the hell out of it in November, but it actually got cloying on me out on the June prairie.

Way overcarbonated. Really couldn’t taste the beer because I poured a full glass and 95% of it was head. Probably just a bad bottle.
