3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Serving: Draft. Pours a cloudy brown with a small, light tan head. The nose is lighter in the smoke than an Aecht marzen with a little meatiness to it. The flavor has some smoked meat, a little earth, and light malt notes. Finishes fairly clean, but not as crisp or as clean as I hoped. Good, not great.
