3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at a local. Pours a thin short lived, off white head, over a clear, amber (SRM 8) body.....nose is cereal, light malt, touch of toffee/caramel....taste is slight sweet with cereal, malts, light toffee/caramel, finish slightly tart...mouth feel medium, carbonation adds a light spritz. This meets the style quite well with a nice interplay of the malts, with a light hop addition. BJCP 7/3/13/4/6

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Tasted on tap at the Black Sheep in Colorado Springs, CO. Red-amber appearance with medium size head. Nutty, amber malty aroma. Bitter amber malty flavor, a lot like many "red" ales and true at all to Märzen style.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Ruddy orange as described by the label this had some very nice aromas of chocolate, plums, and malts. The taste is very bread-like which starts out good but then takes a weird turn in the aftertaste which I don’t like. Drinkability is just ok. I will still be checking for new Edge City releases from Bristol.

Thanks to Mike for this one. Dark gold body, no head formation. Aroma is sweet and malty. Grainy malt flavor, somewhat sweet, and there’s a vegetable quality in there somewhat.

Bomber from Kevin. Golden honey colored body, mostly clear. Sweet, sticky honey malt, medium thickness for a marzen, it’s oily and hoppy but not overhoppy, just a bit more than usual for the style... overall clean and simple, tastes of corn, wheat, fish (?). Not bad.
