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. Pour dark amber. Good taste. Full bodied and what an amber lager should be. Very enjoyable.

Pours brown with a large white head. Smells of sweet malt, citrus, tea. Tastes tarte and sweet with soe sugary hints on the finish.

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)

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.

kramer (5827) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 16, 2008
12 oz bottle, from the brewery. Pours a clear dark amber, maybe even a bit too dark for a Vienna, with a small fizzy beige head that vanished completely. The nose is dry toasty malt with a certain amount of huskiness, a little dark caramel, very slight floral hops. Malt forward flavor, sweet, toasty, caramel, even a little nuttiness Finishes a little on the husky side for being a lager, minimal hoppiness from from to back. The flavor and the mouth feel are not especially clean or crisp like I want from a Lager, and there’s really not a whole lot of Vienna malt character. Medium bodied with fizzy moderate carbonation. This is certainly drinkable, and not a bad beer per se, but it pretty well misses the mark for a good Vienna to me.

beerbill (3605) - Laurel, New York, USA - APR 18, 2009
12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear dark amber with a thin-moderate off-white head that lasted through the first two sips and left no lace. Mild aroma of malt and not much else. The flavor is weak malt that is both bready and a bit grainy. Flat would be the best way to describe the flavor. There is some very minor hops at the finish. I would not call this a bad beer, but I would say that it is dull.

Rciesla (5500) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAY 6, 2009
Bottle. Pours an amber body with an off white head. Sweet nutty with german style malts. Caramel, toffee, and a thin body. Not for me.

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.

j12601 (9548) - 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.

Draft at the guilty goose. Deep amber color. Reddish. Malty sticky flavor. No head. Eh
