3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Seemed true to style. Big malt balanced by noble hops. Didn't expect much from a brewery in a winery, but the beers were exceptional.
12 oz bottle from the brewery.
Amber pour, fizzy tan head. Light, bready malt aroma. Bit of grain. Milder taste. Lively feel. Fine. BrewBoxer (2667) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 14, 2014
Draft at the guilty goose. Deep amber color. Reddish. Malty sticky flavor. No head. Eh zach8270 (4021) - Henrietta, New York, USA - DEC 7, 2013
(draft @ Wagner Valley Brewing Company - Lodi, NY) Orange pour with a thin white head. Light malty aroma with some mild hop bitterness. Nothing out of the ordinary. Flavor is exactly the same. Some light malts with a bit of hop bitterness. Kind of ordinary. j12601 (13302) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - APR 14, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear ruby amber with a thin beige head. A touch of paper and old malt, hints of prune. A bit papery, old plum and prune, touches of malt. Medium bodied, toasty, warm malt. The paper notes kill it though. I’d imagine this was decently crisp and tasty a few months back. Alas. bbbeer (905) - Massachusetts, USA - OCT 22, 2012
Light orange-red with small white head. Aroma malty. Medium light body. Off-dry with some caramel malt sweetness. Finishes off-dry as well. Ok.

UPDATED: SEP 1, 2012 Bottle. I drank this with a meal (grilled pork chops) and thought it was spot on A nice hefty Vienna-style lager. Some malty sweetness, not much hop flavor. Possibly my favorite from this brewery/winery. can8ianben (1601) - State College, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 3, 2012
I don’t remember much about this one - other than that it was pretty sweet for my taste. Had on tap at the brewery/vineyard. Most of their beer was pretty forgettable. Bif (2393) - St. Charles, Missouri, USA - OCT 7, 2010
Bottle- Pours a dark amber color with a small tan head that fades quickly and no lacing. Mostly a grain aroma with a hint of sweet malt. A mild sweet malt & caramel taste. A very light bitterness with a mild sticky sweetness for an aftertaste. Fairly light body, quite smooth. Decent drinker, but a tad sweet to have more than 1-2. A nice unoffensive brew. Got as a 6-pack mixer.

Brown pour with am off-white head. Aroma is malt a bit metallic some hops. Flavor is thin watery, a little malty. Pretty mediocre. shadey (2171) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 30, 2010
On draft at the brewery. Award winning for a reason. A very flavorful amber with toastiness and sweet malts. Not bad at all.
