COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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.

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.

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 (7476) - 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 bottles back on target, and has always been one of Snake Rivers best bottled beers by far. A very fruity example indeed. The brilliance of this beer just might depend on its age, though, its hard to say...all these fruity aromas might only come out after shelf time (theyre unfiltered, and thus may still be creating fermentation effects).

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.

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!

AlchemistZ (493) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - JUN 23, 2005
Deep, copper color with a creamy head of foam. Sweet, toasty maltiness with a campfire mashmallow character. Acidic crispness underpinned between layers of sweet, toasty maltiness and a dry finish. Mouthfeel is creamy and medium. Pretty much perfect for style but also a pretty boring style. If this had a lusher, more saturated flavor it would probably receive higher marks. Perfect with a slice of pizza.
