A coppery amber lager that showcases a full bodied, malty flavor that is balanced by a refreshing bitterness derived from fine noble hops.

Sixer with Boo; from Liquor Barn (Jefferson Commons); bottled on 8/12/16. Aroma: Lightly sweet bread with a touch of spiciness. Appearance: Coppered gold with soft carbonation holding up a sticky white head that settles into a patchy ring. Flavor: Caramel glazed bread up front; noble hops do more to reveal dryness than to provide bitterness; the finish is off-dry and barely bitter. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, soft carbonation abrupt finish. Overall: Not noteworthy in any one category, especially among American takes on the style. Has an initial caramel sweetness not found in the better European examples.

Pours clear amber with a one finger off white head with some lacing. Aroma is of bready malts, caramel, sweet malts, nutty malts, light grassy hops, and light earthy hops. Taste is about the same as the aroma. Has a semi creamy mouthfeel with a slightly bitter, medium finish. Overall, a decently tasty beer that is easy drinking and pretty good for the style.

TAR (2685) - Marshall (Asheville area), North Carolina, USA - SEP 17, 2016
Clear golden orange.Thick collar of foam holds well. Quiet but polished and focused nose of honeyed baguette, almond skin, apricot, hay and toasted cracker. Subtle note of paper and DMS. Firm, snug carbonation. Honey- and apricot-kissed sugars are cleansed by a firm toasty dryness and a tickle of floral, gently spicy hops. Mild saccharine notes and a tinge of papery lifelessness hinder the otherwise rich, well-extracted maltiness. Just enough succulence to the grain to induce a tongue-smack. Buried note of DMS sneaks its way into the mix, but there’s plenty of snappiness to keep it from hanging around. Sturdy malt structure is enhanced by a well-lagered fullness and mostly clean fermentation which underscores its deceptive weight. Big Munich punch and honeyed baguette anchor the haylike accents and spicy-herbal (fennel seed) hop scratch in the well-balanced finish. A few blemishes here and there, but it’s fairly clean and the balance is nicely executed. Not quite good enough to unseat Sierra Nevada’s version as my go-to autumnal lager, but it’s not far behind. Could be better, could be worse.

Solid marzen. Pretty fall colors....reddish brown. Malty, mildly sweet, nice bitter finish. Nothing amazing, but still tasty.

On tap at Hopcat. Slightly sweet aroma. Pours a beautiful Amber. Looks like fall itself. Mostly malt with a good bitter backbone. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

It's common yet tasty marzen beer. Light on the malt and hops. I find this a distracting drinking beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

PorterPounder (7404) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 12, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2016 Tallahassee, Fl. - Market Square Liquors 12 oz bottle. Medium copper pour with a tight khaki colored head that leaves a good trail of lace. Pleasant, strong aroma of caramel and vanilla. Very sweet flavor of molasses, caramel and a bit of baked brown bread. Very full bodied Oktoberfest. Mouthfeel is pleasantly thick and somewhat creamy. I’m sure I’ll drink a god dozen or so different Oktoberfests over the next few months, but this will be the benchmark.

Bottle. Bright orange with a slight haze and a thin lacy head. Malty, fruity nose, toasty, with a bit of caramel. Malty flavor with caramel, bready, toast, touch of peaches. Ok. Not so much fun though.
