3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: a clear, caramelly brown color, a solid, well-retained head.
Aroma: fruity and sweet.
Neat little hop appearance, quickly settling into the smooth and mellow. Light body, long, tasty finish.
Bright and lively flavor.
I struggle some over the style, is it a bock, a dunkel? No, a marzen?
Whatever it is, it’s light, smooth, and perfectly delicious.

Jubel pours a dark amber (rather than brown) with a slight head and mild effervesence. The aroma is malty with a slight fruity afterthought. The taste is malty, full, and rich, giving a pleasant mouthfeel. Good stuff.
