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.

Bottle- Pours a dark amber color with a small tan head that fades quickly and no lacing. Mostly a grain aroma with a hint of sweet malt. A mild sweet malt & caramel taste. A very light bitterness with a mild sticky sweetness for an aftertaste. Fairly light body, quite smooth. Decent drinker, but a tad sweet to have more than 1-2. A nice unoffensive brew. Got as a 6-pack mixer.

I don’t remember much about this one - other than that it was pretty sweet for my taste. Had on tap at the brewery/vineyard. Most of their beer was pretty forgettable.

served on tap at the brewery. Pours a dark amber brown color with absolutely no head. Does look kinda like soda. Flavor is caramel malts, slightly roasted nut and bitter hop undertone. Overall, decent but not my favorite.

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.

I detect apples, dark fruits and raisin in this very smooth well balanced beer. I had it at the brewery on tap. The aroma seems a bit weak and the flavor isn’t very pronounced-it just exists to appeal. The malty quotient here was appealing I have to say.

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.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - OCT 10, 2002
This is a fairly tasty dark lager. Usually I am not a big fan of lagers, but this is malty and sweet with a nice bitter balance. Excellent aroma and very carbonated, this is a good beer.

Bottle. Dark amber body, minimal head, sweet malty nose. Caramel, molasses, sweet malts, not much in the hop department.
