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

Bottle courtesy of James at his November 2012 tasting. Pours an amber body with light lacing. Aroma is soft malts and grain. Mouthfeel is light with notes of sweet malts, light wheat, very soft bitter hop and grain. Not bad.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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).

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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!

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
UPDATED: JUN 29, 2006 This one came in my beer club and I am not familiar with the brewer. Another crap lager. Yeah. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a chestnut color with a large tan head. The aroma is sour vegetal malts. The flavor is sour, mildly vegetal and has a strong vinegar element. Drain pour.

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.

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.
