3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A beautiful clear red/orange color with a finger and a half of soapy off white head that dissipates to a film rather quickly. Decent lacing down the sides of the snifter. Picking up toasted malt and cherry on the nose with a bit of rye spiciness. Toasted malt flavor with a hint of cherry skin bitterness and spicy rye pepperiness. Mouthfeel is a little watery but not bad for a lager. Carbonation is moderate, finishes dry. Nothing too overpowering here, just a good blend of flavors that make for a clean rye lager.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber color with a moderate light cream to canvas colored head. Scents of raw grain, mild molasses and snap dragon flowers. An intriguing aroma, but not one I easily embrace. Full feel and just a hint of slipperiness. Light sweetness. A bit grainy in flavor. Light floral hops. Seems a bit simple, but quite drinkable. Has some rye qualities that make me think about distilling. 2/10

Bottle from Aaron--thanks! A dark lager. Small white head. Generally a sweet, malty beer, with a bit of Octoberfest to it. Creamy body. Second one tastes better than the first one (two different nights).

Cherry and Eason sweetness come from this clear copper lager. The taste is malty and cherryish through out the taste with a slight bitter aftertaste in this medium bodied brew. Marzen style is pretty close to this

12 oz pour from bottle, warmed to probably 50 degrees. Decent head, but quickly dissipates. Red hue, mild carbonation. Clear. Very pretty. Nose is strong cherry. Fruity. Taste is woody, cherry, biscuit, and a faint spice. Nice aftertaste. A little bitter.

Poured a pale gold to amber colour with a fluffy white head. Aroma is yeast and mixture of grain and biscuit. Flavor is dark fruits, grain, and caramel with the rye not being too overpowering. Light medium bodied with light carbonation and a dry malty finish. Very smooth and easy to drink.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A pleasant rye-accented but not rye-dominated Marzen variation, very well crafted. Pours an orange/rusty amber color, good head and lacing. Aroma of caramel malt, dank cherries, doppelbock-ish with more sweet caramel. Very malty, some grain, various caramel notes, earthy dark fruit all in the flavor. The rye spiciness is there but it's not front and center, mostly a classic marzen just with a more amplified flavor profile. Some subtle juicy hops and earthy bitterness in the aftertaste, and yet more caramel malt. This brew is well executed and can stand up to a well seasoned meal, recommended.
