3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Another great American Marzen style beer, although classified here as a Vienna. Pours out medium golden with lazy carbonation and a thin head. It gets better with a nice sweet malt aroma, and even more robust malty taste. Mouth feel is slick and slippery, lingering malt sweetness and a snap of hop bitterness at the very end. Prost!

This beer is a very clear amber color with a medium white head, and the aroma is fairly light blends lager yeast and some caramel malts. The taste is mildly sour, a touch sweet, and a touch bitter, and there is hardly an aftertaste beyond some lingering carbonation bite. The palate fuses a slick and thin texture, medium-light body, and an average carbonation.

Pint at eastbound on pint glass night. The glasses didn’t come in so I talked the girl into giving me a Blue Moon glass! Woohoo!!! I had hoped for more oak but it was mostly just another Oktoberfest. Decent but not amazing.

Lovely orange/brown color. Very rich taste. A little on the sweet side and a little sparkly. Well rounded with nice amount of warming alcohol

355 ml. bottle sampled @ Firestone Walker Tasting. Thank you! Bottled on 05/08/2014. Sparkling golden, almost no head. Light sweetish metal nose, faint citrus herbs. Lightly bitter herbal, metal, white sugar, bitter grass & hay finish beer. Light body. Not a very exciting lager. Drinks easily but nothing to get exited about.

Draft to taster. Looks solid; a transparent gold with eggshell head. Smells grainy and mildly malty with notes of lager yeast. Tastes like it smells with a touch of caramel. Average on the palate. Not bad, but forgettable.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught. Clear rich yellow with off-white spongy large head, doughy aroma, disappointing yeasty taste, low carbonation, abrupt finish. Unexpectedly ordinary for Firestone Walker !

On tap. Clear golden color with a creamy white head. Aroma is caramel, malts, sweetness. Flavor is similar. Light, crisp, refreshing. But still plenty of flavor. Sort of a spice character (cinnamon maybe) that’s subtle but there. Quite good.

Bottle. Clear yellow gold. Bland aroma and taste, very low malt for an Oktoberfest. Nothing special.
