Poured a light amber/orange with a light, small foamy head. The nose was sweet with toasted carmel malt and autumn-fruity hops. The flavor starts with generous amounts of toasted carmel malts and is matched by slightly citric, apple/orange fruity hops. The sweetness of the malt gives way to the bitterness of the hops by the time the finish rolls around. This is one of the hoppier marzens that I’ve tasted. It seems to be a cross between a marzen and a pale ale. A fine, very drinkable lager. JK (6162) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - NOV 8, 2009
UPDATED: APR 1, 2012 Copper color, with a very short lived off white head. Light caramel malt aroma. Malt flavor, some caramel and grain, with lager yeast. Solid. 6/3/7/3/15
Rerate from a fresh bottle. Big malt profile, the caramel is still there. Mild & dry hop aroma. This beer has excellent palate, and this is an outstanding session beer. beaz1591 (238) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - AUG 16, 2012
From can. Pours a clear amber color with nice head that quickly dissipates. This is a really smooth beer that has a slight hint of caramel. EdInSaltLake (727) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - SEP 21, 2014

Golden-caramel color, hint of some spice (cinnamon-nutmeg?) in the nose. Slight lacing, very smooth. A little bit of malty sweetness going on at the finish. Nice session beer. Ernest (7696) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 2, 2002
UPDATED: OCT 17, 2007 Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy medium amber, unfiltered. Aroma is moderately malty (caramel, cookie, toasted bread), moderately hoppy (flowers, apricot), with notes of peach, mango chutney, and tangerine. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. This bottle’s back on target, and has always been one of Snake River’s best bottled beers by far. A very fruity example indeed. The brilliance of this beer just might depend on its age, though, it’s hard to say...all these fruity aromas might only come out after shelf time (they’re unfiltered, and thus may still be creating fermentation effects). bikeymoy (4) - Lebanon, Ohio, USA - JUL 8, 2003 does not count
Excellent malty character in true vienna lager style. Color was a bit light and slightly cloudy but that's not any big deal. I'm just nitpicking...it could be prettier is all. hotstuff (5158) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 25, 2003

Deep bronze color, light caramel color, light head and lacing. The aroma is lightly hoppy. The body is light and easy to drink, definately a lager but with some great malty tastes, caramel and very earthy. Good vienna!
