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.

Ernest (6729) - 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).

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.

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.

5000 (6300) - 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!

riversideAK (5738) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - NOV 15, 2007
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.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - NOV 13, 2005
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.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5523) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 9, 2006
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.

Deep bronze color, light caramel color, light head and lacing. The aroma is lightly hoppy. The body is light and easy to drink, definately a lager but with some great malty tastes, caramel and very earthy. Good vienna!

This Vienna pours an amber gold color from a 12oz bottle. Medium sized white foamy head. Aroma is fruity, caramel and orange. A medium bodied Vienna. Malts are caramel and sweet. Hops are slightly citrusy. Slightly spritzy carbonation. Very drinkable lager. Crisp and clean. Nice malty finish. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.
