COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Jenny Lake Lager is an amber colored Vienna style lager. An authentic German lager yeast strain insures a mild profile. Imported German malts impart a rich, caramel flavor which is balanced with the subtle use of continental hop varieties. The malt forward, slightly sweet profile of Snake River Lager makes it a fine complement to pizzas and red meat.

Bottle > Rendezvous, Jackson Hole, WY. Good solid lager. Nice sweetish backbone. Would be a good daily drinker.

Rockinout (966) - Kent, Ohio, USA - NOV 2, 2002
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.

scooterbub (955) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - OCT 12, 2008
Bottle. Pours a nice amber/copper color with a large white head that slowly fades. Taste is of roasted malt and caramel, with a slightly bitter finish. Aroma is much the same, except hops can be detected. Overall, this is a nice, easy to drink beer that is rather enjoyable.

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.

(GABF 2004) Malty. I could not taste the use of good german/vienna malt. Average brew.

P-tor44 (886) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JAN 10, 2002
awsome looking in the glass. deep brown color with a rocky head that peaks well above the rim. the toasty malts of this beer do little to live up to the incredible apperance.

sfontain (851) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 30, 2006
Pretty, orange color; smallish, mostly fizzy head. Pleasant but weak aroma, with citrus, floral, and bready notes. Tastes of citrus (mainly orange) and breadiness. Medium-thin body; clean.

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: MAY 3, 2004 RERATE: This beer deserves a much higher rating than I originally gave it (3.5), I had it on tap recently, it was very good, and subsequent bottled brews are really growing on me. It's a simple brew that's very smooth, malty, caramelly, lightly hopped, and quite drinkable, AND one hellova session beer. I am more than pleased, and somewhat impressed with it. It's showing up more and more in my fridge.....

Now when I look this up and it references this as a Vienna lager it makes sense. Nice slightly caramel aroma, nice malt sweetness and a balanced finish. Good job.
