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.

The huge head was a big disappointment, it clouded its aroma wgich seemed malty and sweet. Had a nice cloudy amber color too it. The taste was a spicy mix of malt and hops.

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.

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.

shadey (1879) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 30, 2010
On draft at the brewery. Award winning for a reason. A very flavorful amber with toastiness and sweet malts. Not bad at all.

JFURYCAT (1079) - East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 2, 2006
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.

HogTownHarry (6042) - 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.

UPDATED: SEP 1, 2012 Bottle. I drank this with a meal (grilled pork chops) and thought it was spot on A nice hefty Vienna-style lager. Some malty sweetness, not much hop flavor. Possibly my favorite from this brewery/winery.
