2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at Collective on Tap, Woodinville, WA
Hazy light amber color with compact head. The aroma is a bit doughy, the mouthfeel is expectedly soft and round, with light residual sweetness; the flavor is lightly bready, with timid malt, and low hopping; indeed quite similar to most German examples, which is not necessary good. Plain, almost boring.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
2004 draught. Pours a light orange with some dark yellows. Strangely, the colors separate and you’ve got lots of yellow on the top and edges and it looks like orange food coloring added in the middle. No head. Smells musty and old, with nutty, lightly bitter hops and malt. Flavor is sweet and caramelly, with a light hops bitterness. Doughy and medium full bodied, it’s quite full on the flavor, it just gets a bit boring. I didnt find my sample watery though. Low carbonation.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: Deep translucent amber, moderate foamy off-white head, light carbonation, fairly nice lacing.   Musty cereal aroma, slight wet cardboard, a little barnish.   Very cereal/oat oriented on the tongue.   Soft caramel or vienna malts perhaps, but unfortunately a little metallic on the backside.   Semi-sweet malt profile, but the finish is a bit rough.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Lingering metallic taste, along with a soft semi-sweet grainy astringency.   For a local Oktoberfest, I still prefer Baron the most!

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This marzen pours a deep orange gold color from a 22oz bottle. Medium sized white foamy head. Aroma is caramel, lemony and a touch of bread. A medium to light bodied marzen. Malts are caramel and bready. Hops are earthy and floral. There is a touch of lemon and a touch of vegetative something in this beer. Not sure it’s was supposed to be there. Mostly drinkable, but a little unpleasant tasting. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter and citrusy.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: AUG 9, 2003 Amber and highly carbonated for a marzen. Small malting and diffuse bland hops. Balanced?--probably--but a rather insipid offering.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Spring Beer Festival in Seattle. Amber colored. Offering a sweet malt aroma. Nothing exciting about this beer. Bland and watery. With some hints of sweet maple and malt for flavors.
