4.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
Aroma is slightly reminiscent of a Flemish sour ale, as is the taste. Deliciously even, moderately complex palate. Really a great beer overall.

Tasted at woody’s. Pours a dark amber with reddish highlights. Nice and malty nose and body. A little on the sweet side. Caramel flavors pervade. Decent for style I suppose.

12oz bottle. Pours a fading, lacing light tan head with a murky amber brown body. Smells of apples, caramel, honey, toffee. Tastes like a caramel apple. A little bready on the finish.

Bottle. Poured a clear amber color with a two finger off white head. Aroma of malt. Flavor was pretty much all malt. Decent beer, but I’ve had better within the style.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber pour with a thin off-white head. Malty grain aroma. Flavor is pure sweet malt with little discernible hops. Not a bad marzen.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled Jun 08. Poured a hazy brown with a tan head that settles and left light lace. Aromas of honey, caramel and some fruits. The flavor had roasted malts, chocolate, honey and a hint of spice. Medium body and a roast malt aftertaste.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Smells good. Taste is strong. Seems higher in alky than 5%. Looks like clear ice tea. Filtered. Good, about average carbonation. Other fests I’ve had have more refined manners. $3.50 a bottle. Comparitivily, a little expensive around here. I’m being generous on the flavor rating.

2.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a hazy dark amber, almost tea like. Caramel malt aroma, some fruit notes. Roasted malt, caramel taste. No great finish to speak of, and kind of watery. Meh, okay lager

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark copper pour, big dense head, with nice lace. Sweet fruit aroma. Thin mouthfeel with low carb, and a phlegmy bready sweetness. Finishes with a raisin fruity after. A Bit of sourness and candy sweetness. Not bad, maybe a tad old.
