Toast, carmel, grain, and grass nose. White head on a copper body. Big carmel and toffy flavors backed by fresh milled malt, grass, and hay. Finishes with white bread and toffee. Simple and solid. dwyerpg (6216) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - AUG 23, 2005
Darkest lager I’ve ver seen (maybe that makes it a Vienna?) Sweet, a little hoppy, but a worthy brew from America’s northernmost brewery. DarkElf (3062) - La Jolla, California, USA - OCT 1, 2005
(12 oz bottle) I don’t remember where I bought this bottle -- somewhere out in the middle of nowhere in Alaska -- but it’s a good one. While there’s no doubt that this amber lager is mildly sweet and caramely, I’m really liking that this beer isn’t 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. I’d say there’s 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. It’s 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 it’s 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. iamsancho16 (99) - USA - NOV 17, 2006
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. graham515 (537) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 13, 2009
Pours a beautiful deep amber into the glass with minimal white head. Aroma is full of sweet munich malt. Flavor is caramel sweet with a bit of hop bitterness. Very drinkable, very tasty.

Amber color out of the bottle with a beige head that disintegrated into a ring very quickly. Carmel sweet malt nose. Full bodied with lots of malty sweetness, balanced by subtle hop bitterness. Clean and crisp. Good with a sandwich. CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 3, 2008
Bottle thanks to timmcd64: Pours a clear copper amber with a thin, wispy-lacing white head. Authentic aroma of lightly sweet toasty caramel and Munich malts and noble hops. Body starts lightly sweet and grainy with a touch of mild bitterness before a smooth finish. A pretty good and drinkable Vienna. after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - MAR 6, 2010
