Jenny Lake Lager is an amber colored Vienna style lager. An authentic German lager yeast strain insures a mild profile. Imported German malts impart a rich, caramel flavor which is balanced with the subtle use of continental hop varieties. The malt forward, slightly sweet profile of Snake River Lager makes it a fine complement to pizzas and red meat.

Pours a orange/amber color. Aromas of malts/caramel, sweet smelling. Sweet flavors of caramel with some hops/fruit.

Cappadonna (110) - Delray Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 3, 2005
Light golden brown with white head. The aroma is sweet with notes of pumpkin. The flavor is sweet and malty. The palate isnt as "sticky" as its Oktoberfest cousin.

Best Before October 2005 bottle from Liquor Mart. Consumed on 11/30/05.
Rusty copper colored beer, lightly hazy with just a trace of yeast settling out on the bottom. Some brighter strawberry red hues and an off-white head with fair retention and lacing, eventually receding to cover. In the nose is a lightly sour note, perhaps munich grains, and a hint of dry fruits (unripened berries, unripened nectarines). Dry, husky malts on the end. Smells just a touch metallic at first, but this passes. The flavor has plenty of medium-dry caramel, soily, lightly bitter hops and dry breadiness lingering. Moderately crisp yeast on the finish as well. Carbonation is moderate, pretty average for the style, while it has a lightly watery texture, though its not thin by any means. Surprised to find this is 6% abv, as it masks that very well and comes off as a very low gravity, albeit well-malted, session lager. Very even maltiness, not the most complex, but does provide bread, fruits, biscuits and light hops.

i just dont like lagers hmm. It seemed to have some nice sweet malty notes but also a very bland yeasty note too. Minimal hops. Color was just a plain amber head was white with some retenion, a nice mouthfeel. eh

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 25, 2005
Respectable Vienna-style lager. Some malt sweetness but in a restrained way, making this very repeatable. Moderate hop bite which I liked. A surprisingly nice lager.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 15, 2005
Does have a caramel-ish aroma to it. Fairly strong aroma too. Orange/tea colored with a finger thick head. Caramel comes through a again with some hay/grass notes and a lot of marzen characteristics. Strong malt profile. A little sptritzy int he finish despite the mellow maltiness.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - NOV 13, 2005
Good looking pour, a bright orange body with a creamy three-fingered head. The aroma is a rich caramel with toffee and a smattering of herbal hops bitterness. Smooth to drink, the caramel dominates the flavor with the hops balancing it out in the finish. Very drinkable.

DarkElf (3061) - La Jolla, California, USA - OCT 1, 2005
(12 oz bottle: Obtained in trade with bkelley68, thanks Brian!) Another Snake River bottle of beer with volcanic activity on the pour. It took every effort to keep the light-tan, frothy head at only two inches. However, it subsides to a quarter-inch with a few minutes, leaving large chunks of foam on the glass. Deep amber in color with a slight ruddy tint and a thick haze. It smells toasty and lightly sweet, but also fairly fruity and a bit soapy, not horrible though. And fortunately, the flavor is still pretty solid. Its very toasty and only lightly sweet, with a mild tartness and hoppy bitterness for pleasant balance. The fruit and soap I got in the nose is barely noticeable in the flavor, and in fact, those qualities have faded considerably in the nose as well. What I will say about this Vienna is that it doesnt seem lagerish in any way to me; maybe its that slight up-front fruitiness that is distracting me, but this beer doesnt even finish with any hints of being a lager. Its medium bodied, slightly dry, and quite carbonated on the palate, but because its not really a sweet beer, its reasonably clean and easy to drink, never tiring out the palate. As I near the end of this session, the beer has still maintained a complete layer of head. Different from most Viennas Ive had, so I dont know how "to style" it is, but its quite flavorful and enjoyable enough.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - SEP 16, 2005
12 oz bottle pours amber with a short white head. Aroma of caramek malt, some peaches and a little bit of light hops. Flavor is of caramel malts, a touch of peat adds some earthiness. It actually finishes slightly bitter. Palate is smooth and easy drinking. Medium bodied. Not bad.. just not a very exciting style.

Light amber in color, small head. Very creamy texture with hints of toasted malt mixed with a little dried apricot. Nice clean finish.
