*did not mind would not buy* aroma: faint smell of incense and stew. . like a hippie kitchen. app: like whiskey. flavor: like a very very light brown ale. lil toasty flavors. a floral pale ale brown ale with lotsa water. palate: watery. OA: fine water filled beer, neat peppery finish. I think this would be more intresting and just as healthy to drink as water.. 8 glasses a day.

Pours light amber with a slight head and super slight lacing. Very under carbonated. Slight smells of malts and light hops. Weak flavor not worth my time or money.

On tap. This Vienna pours a medium amber color. Small sized head. Aroma is caramel and sweet. A medium bodied Vienna. Malts are caramel, fruity and sweet. Nice clean malt flavors. Touch of nuttiness. Hops are earthy and floral. Nice balance. Clean tasting Vienna. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

The Silver Gulch Brewing Company is located in Fairbanks, Alaska and produces some very good beers that rival those of the Midnight Sun Brewing Company and the Alaskan Brewing Company. This one is no exception.

The aroma was light fermented fruit, flowers, slight citrus, slight tea and toasted nuts. The flavor was toasted nuts, slight tea, citrus, flowers. The beer poured a golden brown color w/ orange, red, and yellow highlights; thin lasting head and lacing. The mouthfeel was creamy and light bodied w/ a wet finish.

(12 oz bottle) I dont remember where I bought this bottle -- somewhere out in the middle of nowhere in Alaska -- but its a good one. While theres no doubt that this amber lager is mildly sweet and caramely, Im really liking that this beer isnt nearly as sweet and caramely as many in this category, and so the toasty maltiness is able to shine under the spotlight of center stage. Id say theres even a very slight tartness to help keep the beer balanced and clean. The nose is quite toasty, and the sweetness is even less of a factor than it is in the flavor. Its medium bodied, perfectly carbonated, and dry and clean on the palate, so this is something I could easily drink multiple bottles of without getting sick of the flavor or experiencing palate fatigue. Deep orange-amber body is also quite hazy, and its capped by a small, light-tan head that leaves no lacing as it settles to a broken filmy layer. Very tasty, very drinkable, quite enjoyable. I just might have to bring back more when I visit Alaska again.

Darkest lager Ive ver seen (maybe that makes it a Vienna?) Sweet, a little hoppy, but a worthy brew from Americas northernmost brewery.

On draft at the Pumphouse in Fairbanks AK (dont go to this restaurant by the way). Reddish amber with a thin head and very light caramel beer not unlike a light bodied Vienna. Kinda boring but well done.

Nice overall beer. Good color and good aroma. Not a huge lager fan, but this one was on that I could drink reguarly.
