4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Growler from the brewery in Hood River. Light golden brown pour, good sized slick of a white head. Nice strong aroma of bread, roast, nuts - very inviting. Taste - very solid as well. Tons of nutty flavour balanced by lively carbonation and hops over a light body. Nice roast/nutty/sweet linger as well. One of the best marzens I’ve had.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a soft and clean orange-ish amber with one or two fingers of fizzy sandy tan head. Nose has a light caramel sweetness on the edges, works well with the herbal hop note and biscuity/bready grain. Flavor is nice, earthy and lightly toasted grain. A touch of malt sweetness makes its way through. Very soft and mellow/mild with full malt flavors and a clean finish. Very very low bitterness and soft finish. Nice

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sweet, bread crust, and apple-ish fruit aroma. Sweet malt, with subtle toasted malt flavor. Similar fruity flavor. Not bad--but seems pretty fruity, and not that malty.

Bottle @ home picked up at Wilbur’s Foco. Pours a clear, deep red orange appearance with a light brown head. Sweet caramel malty, a bit nutty, little roasted, grassy, herbal aroma. Pretty smooth, slightly sweet toasted malty but fairly dry flavor. Light caramel, chewy herbal notes throughout. Better than I was expecting. Pretty good.
