3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This lager poured a deep amber colour with a fast living, off white, rocky head. No lacing. To the nose there are scents of cooked veggies, caramel and dough. First sip was smooth with a flavour all its own. Flavours of rye grain, resin hops and an almost leather flavour are most prodominant. Finish is bitter with strong hop finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
355 ml bottle. Cloudy orange-brown body with a thin but lasting white head. Raisins, candied fruit, orange and spice on the nose. Sweet malt at first before orange zest and pith, peppery spice and dried fruit flavours come through. Slightly zesty finish with a lingering spicy aftertaste. Would definitely have again.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured from a 12 oz bottle with a bottling date of 15 Sept. 2015 into a lager glass.
Appearance – the body has an orange-amber color and is topped by a modest size, bone-colored head. The head has decent retention and leaves some foamy lace on the side of the glass.
Aroma – weak and seems to have some off notes (from the rye?) in addition to notes of caramel and sweet malts.
Flavor – nearly as spicy and hoppy as malty. Much better than the aroma suggests. Improved with some warming.
Mouthfeel –Alcohol seems a little lower than the actual 6.2 % ABV. Medium body with a carbonation level that is medium level, lightly crisp, and appropriate for style.
Overall: a good rye spiced marzen.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft sample at the brewery. Deep gold pour. Aroma of spice and grass. Taste is sweet malt. Kinda grassy. Maybe even a little skunked.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Burnt orange color. Thin, bubbley that receeds to thin ring around the glass. Some sourness in the aroma. Hint of pineapple. Weedy aroma. Dandilion. Watery texture. Minimal carbonation. Burnt toast. Leaves a long off aftertaste. Do not have a lot of experience with Ryes so am giving the benefit of the doubt.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Drank alone, poured from 12 oz bottle. thin white frothy head sticks to glass but disappears on beer. There is a blend of sourness, rye, burnt prune, cereal but overall watery finale. Light brown-orange color. Moderate carbonation. Nothing exciting. 4.4 BD

12 ounce bottle. Pours a hazy Amber color with a small creamy beige head. Faint toasted malt nose. Sweet toasted malt flavor. Subtle Notes of cherry and earthy funk. The rye adds a spicy character and the hops complement this nicely.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Smooth drinking flavorful beer. Bottle to mug. I think the may match better with an ale, but this is tasty enough. Rye and notes of other grains present, some vegetable, baking soda aftertaste.
