2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Out of a bottle best by 12-20-15, which I think was optimistic. Amber color with a short lived off white head. Caramel sugar nose with some bad perfume notes. Some burnt caramel and cardboard, ripe fruit and soured lemon peels, and some stale popcorn in the finish. Maybe better fresher.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Pony Bar. Pours orange with a white head. Bready and lightly sweet malts, faint earthy notes, and a nice fresh clean finish. This one just hit be the right way; clean, drinkable, and just enough flavor to keep it from being boring.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
(Actually called Marzen that day)...A creamy nitro feel conveys powerful sweetness...Curious vegetable notes harass the oncoming oranges...Another sigh closer to saying bye...

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sample at the brewpub. Medium-to-dark amber, slightly reddish tint, little head, very clear. Light malty nose. Quite sweet, sugary, little carbonation, very smooth. Simple, probably hard to drink in quantity as its on the verge of cloying.
