2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
When ordering this I guess I expected a Marzen style but it poured a lot lighter, and the server that day didn’ tknow the style (Fredonia location) but it was floverful and went well with what I had for lunch.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Crisp copper coloured body with a very thin off-white head that fades immediately and almost no movement at all - okay looking. Aroma of metal, a touch of malt and a few minor sugars - not much going on at all. Light-bodied; Metallic and slightly chewy malt note and a touch of citrus and some cleanser and just about nothing else. Aftertaste is pretty mild with some malt and a touch of alcohol. Overall, a pretty bland and uninspired beer with not much going on and not a great example of the style. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Oliver’s Beverage in Albany, New York on 18-November-2011 for US$2.55 sampled at home in Washington on 12-February-2012.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Paul. Clear amber with a generous off white head that quickly fades to thin ring around the outside of the glass. Bit sweet and marzipan, bready, fresh and lightly roasted malt, some slight hops and stale caramel. Moderate carbonation, decent body, sweet but not overdone, becomes very dry and sweet at the end with fresh dough.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 oz bottle from Cranbury BuyRite. Meh, this is lousy. Poured a flat orange/amber with hardly any head. Aroma of wet bread and slight nutts. Flavor of wet bread crusts, hint of citrus, and acorns. Watery mouthfeel with stronger carbonation. Skip this.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear, golden in color with a white head, this has a somewhat pleasant, lager aroma with light caramel. It’s a little too light and watery, sightly sweet with a little bitterness that ends awkward and thin. Weird finish. I don’t like this. It’s downright skunky.
