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.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JAN 12, 2004
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!

Skyview (5411) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUL 19, 2007
Sampled on draught at the brewpub in Jackson, Wyoming. Pours a clear golden amber brew with a thick creamy off-white head with a good lacing. Aroma is very thin and almost absent. Could just pick up a hint of light bread, vegerable and herbal/flowery hops. Taste is light, fruity, little carbonation, with a good balance of hop bitterness and malt sweetness. Finish is light, smooth, crisp, clean cut with no bitter aftertaste.

JK (5411) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - NOV 8, 2009
UPDATED: APR 1, 2012 Copper color, with a very short lived off white head. Light caramel malt aroma. Malt flavor, some caramel and grain, with lager yeast. Solid. 6/3/7/3/15 Rerate from a fresh bottle. Big malt profile, the caramel is still there. Mild & dry hop aroma. This beer has excellent palate, and this is an outstanding session beer.

12oz bottle. Cloudy, amber-orange brown color. Thin, fading head. Sweet and malty, medium bodied. Caramel notes, pretty middle of the road. Some toasty amber notes. Easy drinking, but lacks much depth.

thedm (5282) - Fort Wayne, USA - AUG 24, 2003
This brew poured a small head of mostly lasting white bubbles that left behind a good lacing and a transparent orange colored softly carbonated body. It has a smooth mouthfeel, a mild malt hop aroma and flavor.

BrewDad (5274) - Olympia, Washington, USA - JUL 9, 2005
A good beer with a great flavor. I felt this needed more flavor and maybe more time with the hops. Lagers are tough to brew So I understand the hard work.

JPDIPSO (5153) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 29, 2003
Looks like a vienna. Amber color with a moderate dark cream colored head. Bottle indicates best by end of August, I hope it was 2003. By the aroma I'm not sure. Caramel malt and cerery aroma. Flavors are slightly off. Malt and honey flavors with an acerbic undertone. Some real off flavors. I know this has come up in the forum "should you rate a dated beer?" I have been remiss in replying, let me state here - Hell Yes! Let the brewer/distributor know there is dated beer on the shelf and someone may find it, drink it and let others know it is not a good beer. Maybe it is a great beer fresh, but if the distributor and store does not care, it can reflect badly on the brewer. My $0.02. Will rerate next time I ski at Jackson Hole.

Aroma is grainy malts and a hint of sweetness. The flavor is malts, a hint of hops and a sweetish, smooth finish.
