Notes/Commercial Description:
Snake River Lager is our most popular beer. This is an amber colored Vienna style lager. The rich, caramel flavor is balanced with the use of several hop varieties for a subtle hop note. An authentic German lager yeast strain adds to the true flavor of this beer. The malt forward profile of Snake River Lager makes it a fine complement to pizzas and red meat.

Served on-tap at Snake River Brewing (Jackson Hole, WY). Reviewed from notes.

A: Pleasing clear amber with short cap of pillowy, off-white head with a nice rim of lacing.

S: Bready, light caramel malty aroma, a little cracker and toast too, with a subtle herbal, earthy hops note

T: The flavor is excellent with bold bready, cracker, and light toast notes, a moderate caramel malt kick, and a subdued, mild hop bitterness that keeps the potential sweetness in check. No yeast esters -- a well made Vienna lager.

M: Very smooth with a good balance of carbonation for the light-medium body.

O: Just a great example of a craft brewery doing a good-to-great job with all their beers. This one is nudging great -- highly drinkable with a wonderful malty, bready presence and just the right amount of caramel sweetness. Good work on this one Snake River. Fresh from the brewery doesn't hurt either.

Snake River Vienna Style Lager

Appearance: clear light brown, medium-large head, and some fluffy lacing.

Smell: hops, grainy malt, and nuts.

Taste: malty grain, nuttiness, and a light hop finish.

Mouthfeel: light and smooth.

This is a decent brew. The flavors mesh very well but don't give a large complexity. It is smooth, but maybe to the point of being slightly watery.
