3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap during Octoberfest at the Normal, IL. location. Considering all of the other beers consumed, a final, 4oz. fluted sampler was sufficient. Displayed a cloudy, orangy amber color, with a modest, cream & bubbles head, and some ribbony swirls to the lacing. The nose was light grain, toastiness, a touch of caramel, and a fleeting wisp of yeast generated banana? The flavor presented light malt sweetness and low hop bitterness in a medium body. The finish was moderately dry. A decent Marzen.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at GABF. Deep copper color with a sticky head. Nose is round and toasty, like fruit notes from the Munich malt. Soft noble hop notes as well. On tasting, lots of bread crust and clean malt notes. Pretty full flavored and refreshing overall. Solid beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft on tap at the brewpub (Bloomington, IL). Pours a robust glowing orange amber, nice light haze, frothy white head sits atop, films thicker and full, good lacing. Aromas are a nice lightly malted beer, toasty bread, a touch of biscuits, faint sweeter caramel with a touch of spice. Initial is lighter bodied, goes down smooth with sweeter bready malts and toast, a touch of toffee, floral and grassy bitter hops with a touch of spiciness. Lighter, dry finish with sweeter and toasty bready malts in the middle. A nice sessionable lager here, dry finish, with less spice and a lighter feel to it overall, perfect for sessioning without too much sweet heavy malt to hold it down. Nice
