A Vienna-style lager. Red in color with a slight malt sweetness. Somewhat dry for this style due to Cleveland area hard water. A regular pub offering. A Marzen style lager, amber hued with a toasted "continental" malt base and floral hop presences. Its smooth character is nicely balanced.

Tap sample. Poured clear dark amber color with a large fizzy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate malt and floral aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Drinkable smooth brew.

20 IBU, enjoyed at the brewpub. Reddish tinge, a little head. Malty aroma. A little complexity. Very decent drinkability, and an enjoyable lager. Underrated.

Sample at the brewpub. This beer is a clear dark amber-copper color with a medium thin and creamy off-white head that dissipates steadily. Top ring of lacing with spots underneath. Aroma of caramel and toasted malt, with a touch of hops. Medium, smooth body with a sweet caramel malt character. Hints of roasted nuts and hops as well. The finish is sweet toasted malt with a lingering malty aftertaste. Above average overall.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5392) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 29, 2011
Sampled on draft at the brewpub this beer poured a dark caramel color with a medium sized foamy white head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was tangy, a bit malty and sour - very vague overall. The flavor was nutty with sour caramel and faint vague fruity and floral hops. The finish was long, sour and had some caramel and a touch of perfume. Eh.

Murky brown amber color with a short lived beige head. Sweet malty nose. Caramel sweetness with some toasted white bread. Mild hop bitterness in the finish. There is an odd yeasty taste at the end....

Pours amber with a slight note of malt on the nose. Taste is crisp with a hint of chalk on the finish. Pretty standard for style.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear, copper-brown colored body with a finger-width, frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is slightly nutty with a light sweetness. Some toffee and a touch of caramel with a hint of bread. A tad bit fruity as well. Flavor is a bit thin with a slightly toasted, grainy toffee up front. Light sweetness from a hint of caramel and a few nuts before a light earthy hopping comes in and helps finish this fairly dry with a slight graininess. Medium length aftertaste following a light, smooth body and a light-moderate carbonation. Overall, a decent Marzen. A bit thin, but it has a balanced toasted toffee, grainy and bready maltiness with a light, earthy hopping. Not bad.
