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.

Copper; Faint nose; some fresh rye bread flavours in the malt; vienna malt very evident. A good example.

Leighton (10767) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2009
Bottle. Pours a dark brown with some almost maroon highlights. Medium beige head that lingers for a bit. Nose of burnt malts and caramel. Flavor is highly malty and darkly sweet. Notes of brown sugar, caramel and hazlenuts. Some bitterness and hop kick. Nice, roasted malt aftertaste with some sticky sweetness. Pretty solid.

Lubiere (9877) - 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.

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

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - APR 14, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear ruby amber with a thin beige head. A touch of paper and old malt, hints of prune. A bit papery, old plum and prune, touches of malt. Medium bodied, toasty, warm malt. The paper notes kill it though. I’d imagine this was decently crisp and tasty a few months back. Alas.

Radek Kliber (6390) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JAN 5, 2003
Aroma was not the most appealing to me. Sweet malt with not the freshest vegetables. Dark tea look, minimal head. Ok for now nothing special. Now taste ... A bit dusty in feel with some soft bitterness. Again nothing spectacular.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 6, 2009
Pours brown with a large white head. Smells of sweet malt, citrus, tea. Tastes tarte and sweet with soe sugary hints on the finish.

HogTownHarry (6064) - 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.

blipp (6028) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - MAY 28, 2008
Bottle. Pours red/amber with a beige head. Aroma is caramel malt and vegetable soup. Medium body and a flavor that is very similar to the aroma. Not bad, but really not that good.

Braudog (5645) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - JAN 11, 2009
One more carted by my wife from NY for me. First impression: Dark! It pours reddish brown, syrupy almost. As I drink, this to me borders more on a brown ale or Irish ale with a robust flavor ... quite good, not really what I’d call an Amber lager. (#3469, 11/2008)
