Chipalsa (1307) - Florida, USA - APR 12, 2012
A great take on a classic style of beer. The aroma was fresh of dried orange fruit and a gentle, floral hop scent. Flavors were mild at first, but as it warmed up there was light toffee and again, dried citrus. With a hint of hops in the finish, this beer was incredibly drinkable - cheers!

jjuf1853 (1238) - Land O Lakes, Florida, USA - APR 7, 2012
Draft at Cigar City. Pours a slightly hazy amber with a very thin off white head. Minimal lacing. Aroma has lots of toffee malt notes. Flavor has a nice mix of hop bitterness aka malt sweetness with spice notes in the finish. Very easy drinking.

Jesterdeal (1842) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - MAR 24, 2012
Aroma of toffee, malts and a nice hickory. Pours bronze with almost no head. Taste is nice and hearty. Great notes of toffee and yeast. Sweeter than your average marzen.

dchmela (2636) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 24, 2012
From the growler. Pours a clear copper with a thin white head. Spicy earthy noble hop aroma. Big malty body, touch of breadiness and noble hop bitterness. Excellent marzen.

PorterPounder (5489) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 23, 2012
Tampa, Fl - on tap at the CCB Tasting Room. Medium copper pour, off-white head, nice lace. Earthy aroma, some sweet toffee. Flavor has some caramel, a hint of raisins, some ripening vegetables. Thickish mouthfeel. Pretty solid.

OmegaX (1251) - Florida, USA - MAR 18, 2012
On tap at CCB. Nose is lots of caramel and brady notes with a honey-like sweetness attached to it. The pour produced a nice amber colored body with a sloppy white head. Taste is bready caramel malt with some light honey and fruity esters in the background. I liked the drinkability on this one. A nice brew for sure.

drowland (5998) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - MAR 13, 2012
3/13/12. On tap at the brewery. Clear copper pour with a small khaki head that sticks and laces in small bits. Sweet caramel aroma with touches of breadiness. Sweet, malty flavor with bits of sweet caramel, some fruitiness, and a touch of roast and marzipan in there as well. Not bad!

9/24/11. On tap. Clear burnt orange pour with a small, creamy white head. Malty aroma, a touc tart, with caramel and a bit of fruitiness. Big malty flavor as well - grainy, creamy, and caramel, with a touch of fruitiness. Very nice!

otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 22, 2012
Appearance: light copper and orange. Soft white head and a solid white collar of foam. Collar branches out along sides of glass rim.
Nose: tangerines, peaches, apricots, and mango. Sweet, chewy, and meaty. Melba crust and spice in the back – cinnamon sticks. Orange rind. Brisk.
Palate: sweet spiced tropical fruits – spice is in the back. Apricots and peach skins – pits for bitterness. Essence of cinnamon and nutmeg weave in and out. Piles of fall leaves in the yard.
Final Thoughts: a nice Floridian take on the Oktoberfest style from Germany. Not too much complexity but the flavors were clean, precise, and blended together nicely.

hopscotch (9120) - Indian River County, Florida, USA - OCT 25, 2011
Draft…Clear amber lager with a small, creamy, white head. The bouquet presents a marriage of wildflower and clover honeys, peppery Euro-hops and a suggestion of caramel. Medium-bodied with a buttery mouthfeel and modest carbonation. Well-balanced for the style. Honey and caramel flavor with relatively low sweetness. Finishes hearty, malty and satisfying… yet somehow, refreshing as well.

Travlr (11291) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 3, 2011
Draft. Dark amber color, off white head that settles quickly. Very malty taste. Not bad.
