Headbanger (3663) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 20, 2013
16oz bottle 4/20/13 (Binny’s Naperville Clearance Rack)-44° in Mug-Pours medium copper with a small off white head. Aroma of malt, caramel, and toffee, bread, and slight fruit. Taste of malt, fruit, sweetness, and hops. This medium bodied brew is well balanced and not overly malty. I’m not a fan of this style but this is darn tasty.

16 oz bottle to pint. Looks solid; a transparent copper with fluffy off-white head that dissipates into sticky lacing. Smells solid; semi-sweet, hoppy, and malty. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. A good example of the style.

Bottle sample at the Hinterland tasting at Blacklick Wine & Spirits on 9/20/12. Clear amber pour with a medium beige head. Malty nose with crisp noble hop notes. Malty flavor with a bitter hop finish.

tmongoose (1960) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - OCT 3, 2012
Pint bottle shared. Orangish brown color with off white head. Nice aroma of sweet malt. Has a good solid malt backbone. Get some hop action on the back end. Don’t feel this is overly hopped. But does have a smooth finish. Almost cloyingly sweet on the back end. Pretty decent for Oktoberfest.

UPDATED: DEC 1, 2013 I love these rather large bottles of hinterland. Big pounder bottle, quite unique in packaging. I’ll give it any extra 0.1 out of 5 for the bottle glass. Nice interesting aroma which is clean yet hint of tartness in the olfactory. Some bitter bite but it fades during the session. Decent kick without an in your face alky rudeness. Goes down with a litlle bit of a hinderance, oops, I mean hinterness, heheh. Yes, perhaps more hops than I care for ina fest. Somewhat medium dull bitter finish. Perhaps a little clying at times, maybe an old bottle, a few months.

Bottle. A medium copper colored brew with a thin light khaki head. The nose has fall leaves and peanuts. This tastes of toffee and peanuts. There is also some tasty toffee. A little bit of wood in the finish. Well made.

The aroma is toasted malts, yeast and citrus. The flavor is malts, citrus, a hint of berries and a mildly bitter finish.

shrubber85 (9626) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - SEP 25, 2012
Bottle. Light toffee malt aroma. Hazy amber color with large tan head. Slightly sweet toffee malt and lightly bitter hay flavor. Body pretty light. Not bad - straight forward.

This was poured from tap into a pint glass. Pours dark orange color with a nice and foamy head. There is very nice balance to the aromas of grains, amber notes, crackers and some bits of navel oranges as well. medium bodied with a good smooth feel though it is slightly lacking on the mid. Balanced with straightforward flavors of grains, amber notes and some navel oranges. I enjoyed this. A quality marzen that hit the spots I was looking for.
