3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Rattle n Hum. Marzen is one of my favorite lagers. These hops are pretty damn spicy. Toasty malts and the hops intermingle to make a pretty damn good beer. Maybe a bit too spicy though.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Barcade: Rusty copper pour with a thin off white ehad. The aroma has some spicy amber malts and a light lagered fruitiness. Rounded carbonation. The malt is upfront- with a spicy amber German character. There is also a candied sweet suggestion, followed by a peppery finish. Quite boring and one dimensional. I expected a bit more from this brewer.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Medium copper, decent head. Hoppy, floral aroma. Flavor is a dirty, earthy character. Reminds me of brocolli drug through potting soil. Not my thing, though others may well love this.
