3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft on tap at DLD 2012 (Munster, IN). Pours a rich glowing copper hue. Healthy fiery reddish glow and no real haze. A frothy offwhite head dies to a film, laces small. Aromas are crisp toffee, toast, biscuits. Mellow sweetness, touches of spice, and some dry floral and earthy hops. Touch of yeast, spice. Mellow sweetness leaves it a bit bigger than expected. Initial is lighter end of medium, offering crisp toast and biscuits, gentle sweetness, some crisp carmelization, dry florals and spice. Earthy hops offer spice, decent dryness. Middle is just a touch sticky, toffee, toast. Backend is a touch sticky and toasty, growing dryness, toast, and dry Europe hops, touches of spice. Quite drinkable if getting a touch girthy at times. Solid Marzen.
