COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
From the 1700s through the early 1900s steamboats were used to transport people and produce the length of Seneca Lake. If there were passengers at a dock a white flag was flown during the day and a red flag in the evening. Amber Lager is a malty, full-bodied Vienna style lager. Its strong malt flavor and aroma arise from generous amounts of Vienna and Caramel malts,complimented by a delicate aroma of Tettnang and Hallertau hops. Wagner Brewing Company is pleased to announce that we received an award for excellence for Wagner Valley Dockside Amber Lager.

Malty aroma with a deep red/brown color Tastes full bodied with heavy malt flavor and some light hoppiness. A little too heavy/ rich for summer days.

blipp (5967) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - MAY 28, 2008

TomDecapolis (4443) - Milton, Delaware, USA - OCT 16, 2007
Pours a deep ruby amber with brown and an smaller bubbly/creamy off white head. Aroma of caramel, lightly toasty, some floral notes, along the sweet malty side of things. Flavor of nuts, toasted malts, some metallic, light hop flavor, sweet toffee malts. A decent well made beer, just not something I would go out of my way to get.

alobar (2737) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 3, 2007
Nice copper color with minimal head. Slight aroma of caramel, malts and a bit of hops. Taste is a nice mix of caramel, malts and slight hops. A bit watery.

hophead75 (2008) - Largo, Florida, USA - SEP 10, 2007
sampled at the brewery, and found this to be a pretty good vienna. Caramel (deep amber in color). Aroma is clean and malty, with caramel, toasty malts, and german floral hops. Taste is also clean and smooth with alot of caramel/lightly toasted malts- nice balance with bittering and flavoring hops. Finishes smooth and malty. I think this was my favorite of the beers I sampled.

HogTownHarry (6063) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUL 31, 2007
Bottle (12oz). Deep clear ruby-amber with a smallish fizzy off-white head (3+). For once a WG that doesn’t foam up insanely, Moderately sweet lightly toasted cereal malt aroma, sweet citrus juice and mild floral hops. The taste follows - toasty, a hint of chocolate to go with cereal/rye grain and juicy malt, enough floral bitterness to balance. Average but appropriate body, nicely carbonated, very crisp and lightly bitter finish - very good beer, one of their better ones.

kmweaver (3206) - Petaluma, California, USA - JUL 5, 2007
12oz bottle. Pours a radiant, cola-brown color with the slightest reddish tinge; light tan head with patchy lacing. Toasty malts and caramel in the aroma; a hint of citrus. This tastes wonderful: medium-to-full mouthfeel, showing plenty of cola and a creamy nuttiness; lively carbonation, with a touch of citrus and a near-perfect mouthfeel; terribly drinkable, flavorful Vienna (probably my favorite of the few I’ve had). Medium, toasted malt and nutty finish. I could drink this all day.
