2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Supermarket Liquors in Fort Collins, CO. Pours dark amber with a foamy 3 finger beige head. Smells like roast malt, but kind of like schwarzbier - but sweetish. Medium minus body with foamy carbonation. It’s sweet malt, lightly roasted, and not much like a schwarzbier. Maybe a bit like bock. ???? I give up. Ok drink, but not one I’d repeat deliberately.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Six pack from Tiffanies. Medium dark amber pour with a thin head. Aroma has hints of tasted malt and a slight vegetal funk that combine to create a sour, teaberry-ish aroma that reminds me of the old old Frankenmuth beer from the 70’s. Flavor is a mixture of roasted malts, sweet corn, and teaberry. Grassy hops that create a dry finish with a bit of misplaced bitterness. This really does remind me of the old Frankenmuth brew - something I haven’t thought about for decades. Thanks for the memories.

Bottle. Poured clear brown color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate toasted sweet malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Light to medium sweet flavor with light to medium sweet finish of short to moderate duration. Above average beer worth trying agian.
