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.

Explodes out of bottle with a 5+ finger light brown head but fades quickly leaving only traces of lace. Murky brown/amber with a ton of chunky bits, ugliest beer I’ve seen in a while. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied. Nose is raisin and yeast. Starts with sweet raisin & plum, there is a hint of yeast in the background, finishes smooth and is actually very drinkable. $1.00 for a 12 oz bottle from Hoosick Street Discount Bev. Troy, NY.

Hoppy, red malt nose. Red aleish flavor - tart and malty. Sweet lemony finish. Too tart for me. A bunch of beers have been too tart for me as of late..

Right up there with Sam Adams. Hazy orange color, frothy white head. Aroma is sweet with some earthy type smells(twigs, grass). Tart flavor. Moderate body, balanced finsih, but not that interesting.

UPDATED: JUN 14, 2006 I had a draft sample at the Flour City brewfest at Rochester NY. This brew had a ample body with a hearty flavor. I’ll have to try a bottle sometime. 6-13-06 I had a bottle and I tasted more hops now than before.

Hazy amber color, with a relatively neutral nose with some malty notes. Beer is nicely balanced and easy to drink. It is hard to say the beer should be more expresive, as it is a clean, balanced style, but it seems that it could be more.

The sample of this that I had was a bit old, but still stood out as being pretty good. A nice change and something work trying.

Lubiere (12878) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 6, 2004
Slightly hazy deep golden beer with offwhite head. Sweet malty aroma with vinous qualities, with some yeasty notes. Bready and slightly yeasty taste with a tinnish aftertaste, like young hops with toom much quick. Goes well with a nice Bleu (Bleu de Bresse) as it brings out the sweetness of the beer,in a good way.

(Bottle) Pours a medium, white, frothy head and a copper body. A lot of tiny sedimentation. Nose of yeast, wine and lemon. Thick with a caramel malt taste and a slight tin finish. Very good!

12 oz. bottle: Yes, it is amber in color, just like the name. It pours pretty clear, with a little head. The aroma is malty sweet, with some caramel. The taste contains some roastiness to balance the sweetness. Some hops there in the background. Not too bad. It gets better with each sip.

Healthy toffee murmuring earth tones...Citrus fruit cookies with smoky residue and little bitterness...Peachy sweetness dominates amidst a prevalent lack of pretention...
