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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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

Nice copper color with minimal head. Slight aroma of caramel, malts and a bit of hops. Taste is a nice mix of caramel, malts and slight hops. A bit watery.

Bottle. Pours a dark, clear brown with a small light tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, bready malt, toffee, and caramel. Flavor of cola, sweet bready malt, some vegetal notes as the beer warms. Thin, watery, grainy body. The aroma/flavor composition are more like a doppelbock than a vienna to me. The flavor gets worse as you drink it. Not a fan.

Light orange-red with small white head. Aroma malty. Medium light body. Off-dry with some caramel malt sweetness. Finishes off-dry as well. Ok.

As with many of wagners beers this one was more assertively hoppy than I was expecting. Unfortunately it didn’t quite fit with this lager as the grassy hop flavor overwhelmed the delicate sweet malty side of this offering.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

(draft @ Wagner Valley Brewing Company - Lodi, NY) Orange pour with a thin white head. Light malty aroma with some mild hop bitterness. Nothing out of the ordinary. Flavor is exactly the same. Some light malts with a bit of hop bitterness. Kind of ordinary.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Malty aroma with a deep red/brown color Tastes full bodied with heavy malt flavor and some light hoppiness. A little too heavy/ rich for summer days.
