3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at the brewpub in Atlanta (from notes). Pours golden/amber with a small off-white head. Aroma is moderately sweet caramel and pale malts, with some biscuits, yeast, and a hint of hops. Flavor is the same but a little weaker. Pretty good, for what it is.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft @ Broomfield, CO location: Yellow orange. Fine, dense white foam. Toasted malts produce straw and toffee aromas. Carbonation is soft and creamy but also fairly acidic. Quite grainy, initially, but beautifully rounded with a toasted biscuit sweetness. Malt is quite chewy and also hints at fresh hay which supports the staunch toastiness. Deep candied malt sweetness alleviates the slightly mushy body. Persistently sweetly malty but well-attenuated finish remains layered with toffee, toast, and straw. Despite the acidic carbonation, high level of filtration, and slightly flimsy body, this is a delightfully clean and bready example. Rather pleased with this.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Sample Broomfield, CO location. Beer was medium hazy, oxidized-looking copper with a small, mostly and quickly diminishing head. The aroma was malty with moderate notes of husky toasted grain; Hoppy with a moderate note of green grass. The flavor was moderately sweet, lightly bitter, lightly acidic with an average-length, lightly sweet finish. The body was light, the texture was watery and the carbonation was lively.

On tap at the San Francisco brewpub. Rich gold color with a white head. Sweet caramel aroma. Very similar to the GB Märzen, but with a little more heat. Maybe a bit of lingonberry to the aroma?

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at GB San Diego: Dark amber color, a nice sized head and good lacing. The nose is malty with light toasty caramel and some light fruitiness. The flavor is balanced, good body and full toasty biscuity flavor. The finish is creamy. Decent vienna, especially considering the source.
