TAR (2671) - Marshall (Asheville area), North Carolina, USA - MAY 26, 2014
Draught @ Nürnberger Alm, May. 2013: Orangish gold. Big-bubbled dirty-white head. Decent nose of cookie and chocolate-glazed toffee with hints of pecan, orange candy, melanoidins and licorice. Soft prickles of loose carbonation. Initially soft with a bouncy pecan sweetness and underlying plummy esters. Discreet breadcrust and fleeting melanoidins are overcome by the overly estery body. Some sugary residue renders the flavor a tad overly sweet, which further obscures the malty nuances. Malt does exhibit some pleasant starchiness which helps combat the incessant fruitiness, but not a whole lot of depth or vibrancy is discernible. Some metallic notes faintly exude alongside an agreeable hay dust and candyish yeast accent. Finishes slightly worty and underattenuated with a spent-grain fuzziness, though a surge of rich wood-root-spice bitterness and sturdy breadcrust and creamed coffee flavors help salvage things. Really want to like this, but I’m left with a feeling of ambivalence. It does have its rustic upsides and moments of charm, such as the melanoidins and semi-characterful yet clean yeast, but ultimately it’s overly sweet and the malt too muddled for me to get very excited about. Not bad.

3fourths (9137) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 24, 2013
draft at Nurnberger Alm. served cold, so the early character was quiet raw cereal grains, but as it reached proper serving temperature there’s a LOT of manadarin orange juiciness that shows up. marmalade and jelly beans come to mind. at times I get the faintest whiff of diacetyl, but it may just be my nose and not the beer. lightly surlfuric / eggy yeast notes, mild lemon and spice character. a lot of caramel and sweet orange malt flavors, and just a touch of some wet pet hair / gamey notes. medium body, medium to high sweetness, low acid, medium carbonation, so the mouth presence is a tad limp.
