caramel body, small white head. sweet nose of caramel, munich and vienna malts: light toffee, medium pancake syrup and mildly dirty yeast phenols (vitamin b). at 6% it’s full bodied and syrupy with a nutrisweet flavor masked by caramel malt. low hop bitterness, flabby texture, watery finish. needs to be cleaned up some, dried out a bit and brought down to 5% or lower.

Bottle at James’ place for a tasting. Pours a clear amber with a thin white to beige head. Soft musk and toast on the nose. Medium bodied, toast and a bit of malt. Not much going on, soft bitterness on the finish.

Cletus (6331) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 14, 2005
Pours copper with a creamy white head. Smells of oranges and sugar. Tastes of caramel, and vanilla ice cream. Interesting beer, but off on taste.

5000 (6031) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUN 28, 2006
Bottle: Fiery orange, fairly clear, moderate fizzy off-white head, falls quickly, spotty lacing, light carbonation.   Pale bready aroma, very subtle grains, slight sweetness.   Otherwise very non-descript for a Vienna.   Malty tongue, soft sweetness, slightly bready, with a tinge of graininess.   Clean, with a straw/grassiness that lingers.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Not as rich as other examples (Eliot Ness for example), but bigger than many others and also fairly clean.   Not big, but still enjoyable.   Thanks Jordan!

Ernest (6031) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 2, 2002
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).

Bottle. Pours amber orange with a thin white head. Light sweetness, grainy base, and just a touch of earthy hops. Not bad.

On draft at the brewpub which displayed a seemingly endless amount of flags commemorating this beer’s gold medals at GABF, so I had to try it. Pours a clear and light amber. The aroma was very light malt. The taste was full of a rich malt, light hops, and a almost dry finish. Enjoyable for sure.

Thanks Kyzr for the bottle. Golden orange color. Very thin white head. Definite grassy and spicy aroma with some fruity malt sweetness too. Maybe its apples? Toasted caramel malts, some sweetness and an awesome earthy crisp finish. Has a cider like quality to it too. A tasty beer.
