Went to Waltkins Glenn today and stopped At Wagner Brewery to have lunch at the Ginny Lee on way back. The draft looked kind of strange as it had plenty of large bubbles in glass but no real head on top. Some hops in aroma and flavor, but no spices shinning through. Average. kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 16, 2008
12oz bottle, from brewery. Pours a clear yellow gold body with a small fizzy white head that had minimal retention. Crackery maltiness with a fairly minimal hop accent, a little grassy. The flavor is pale doughy and crackery malts with just the slightest bit of bitterness on the back end. Pretty lacking in flavor, with some corn sweetness coming out a little more as it warmed up. Light bodied, a little thin, with fizzy prickly carbonation. Not an especially good effort with this one, this is barely a rung above most BMC products in terms of character. arventresca (567) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUL 19, 2008
Bottle. Golden with quick disapering head. Light flavor. Nice offering for a beer billed as light. Easy drinking and smooth. blipp (9275) - La Mesa, California, USA - JUL 5, 2008
Bottle. Pours hazy amber/yellow with a bubbly white head. Light caramel malt aroma, a bit of apple, and spicy/herbal hops. Medium body. Flavor is again, caramel, apple, and spicy/herbal hops. This is actually a pretty good beer. MI2CA (1340) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - FEB 14, 2008
12oz thanks beastiefan2k - Aroma is dusty pale malts, grassy Euro hops with some sweet yeast. Pours cloudy gold with a huge pillow head and great lacing. Looked real good in the glass. Flavor matches aroma. Start out sweet and as a crisp tart finish. Palate is tart and clean. I liked it, must have gotten a good bottle.

Wandered into Wagner Valley by accident, while on a Finger Lakes wine tour with my dad. Lliked the pilsner when I had it at the brewery tasting. Found that it conformed to the parameters of the style: hoppy, crisp, fresh, and quaffable. Dry nose, straw-colored, sudsy head. Good mouthfeel. hophead75 (2012) - Largo, Florida, USA - SEP 24, 2007
12 oz bottle from Westmere Beverage in Albany. Hazy light amber/orange in color. This was a gusher! calmed down relatively quickly. Not too bad of an aroma with floral hops and some crackery grain/cereal in the background. Taste was rather thin and painfully carbonated at first, after it settled down it was a bit better. Pale malts and some munich in the taste as well as some saaz hops. A bit dirty and unrefined though. Overall, not too bad, perhaps if this was a bit fresher it would have been better.

Bottle (12oz). Poured very bubbly deep gold with a huge fizz-bubble white head. Dry, acrid aroma, like scorched lemon juice and weeds. The taste is dry, sharp, sour - weedy and bitter. Average body, way too sour and astringent, burningly carbonated - sour aftertaste - I’d say the bottle had gone off, but I’ve had other beers from them and they were less than good. kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - JUL 5, 2007
12oz bottle. Pours a clear, orangish yellow color; off-white head with great retention and lacing. Light aroma: slightly floral with mild citrus. While this starts off quite pleasant (as a crisp, flavorful pilsner) there’s an intense, unpleasant bitterness that quickly creeps through, overwhelming an otherwise pleasant, sugary and chewy pilsner; disappointing after the first few sips. Lengthy, bitter finish. zach8270 (4022) - Henrietta, New York, USA - JUN 20, 2007
(bottle - 12 oz) Light golden color with a small white head. Aroma is very light with a fair amount of hops and citrus. Flavor is very sweet and cloying with some sourness and hops laced throughout. Watery finish and a very strange aftertaste.
