3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at GABF, new State! Pours a nice looking deep copper with a fluffy head that lasts. Nose is crisp and fresh, nice bready notes and some spicy noble hops. On taste, much hoppier than anticipated, really nice bitterness that verges toward a dark pilsner. Lots of bready melanoidins and spicy hop flavors. Very decent beer.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Malty with a clean almost sterile aroma. Flavor is quite malty. A bit of sweet caramel character, but this is too grassy malty for me.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The beer pours a bright amber-brown with a rocky off-white head. The aroma is mostly caramel with an earthy yeast tone and an herbal hoppiness. The malt has a tasty German character. It’s a bit nutty. It’s mildly sweet with a drying finish and a gentle hop bite. There’s a lot of nice German flavor bouncing around. Easy to drink and fairly refreshing. Mouthfeel is pretty standard. Average carbonation. A bit slick. This is a surprisingly tasty beer, particularly for one that I was mostly looking forward for the state tick. It’s got some nice, authentic German flavor and a nicely balanced tone.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tasting at Papsø
Hazy amber color; small head. The aroma is dusty, first of all, then nutty, with some caramel and cereals. Weak body; cereals flavor, too much for a good beer, without interesting malt. Nothing special.
