Not too malty like the description says but smooth indeed. Another prime example of microbrewery success. Very good for Minnesota brewers. softale (188) - Michigan, USA - AUG 15, 2002
Very clear amber in color. Thin head but left a decent lacing as it went down. Some caramel and lightly roasted malts in the nose. Taste is a bit neutral and bland though. Also mouthfeel is on the thin side for a Vienna. lumberjack (178) - Michigan, USA - JUN 12, 2007
Decent balance of malt and hop. Also picked up some astringency. Finish is too dry and lifeless. Although this is drinkable, it could be a lot better. Jayson2425 (167) - Box Elder, South Dakota, USA - APR 12, 2004
I was told this was a good beer and it was not too bad. Has a dry taste to it. The appearence looks good and has a nice aroma SiddFinch (156) - Pen Argyl, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 3, 2002
Great, easy drinking lager. Had this on a business trip to Minneapolis. I remember a cherry aftertaste, but not too overwhelming.

very nice lager - clean, but interesting with good balance and full flavor.. BallyLoser (136) - Redmond, Washington, USA - SEP 27, 2007
Had on Northwest Airlines. Pleasant compared to other Amber Lagers. A little more bite than I prefer. thomasacross (129) - Edina, Minnesota, USA - MAY 5, 2007
Bottle. I’ve been a big fan of this beer both before and after it was brewed by James Page (now defunct) -- I had one recently and it tasted about the same. I think it’s something of a hybrid between an amber ale and a Vienna -- it’s darker and has more hop accents than a straight Vienna, but it’s not as dark as a true amber. A nice beer with excellent flavor and balance. beerlovinman99 (124) - USA - JUL 9, 2002
This looks like it shouldn't be good - the appearance is more like pop than beer. But the Iron Range lager has a rich flavor, a lot of sweetness, and a great aftertaste. THe only beer worth drinking on Northwest Airlines flights! KSS (102) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - APR 1, 2006
Bottle. Red-orange in color with a small, quickly fading head. Malty sweet taste and aroma. Light and thin overall.
