3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very nice fest-style beer. The style lists this a dortmunder/helles, but it’s probably more accurate to list it as a marzen. The flavors are definitely on the malt side, with a nice balancing of hops. This is a fairly classic version of the style, but maybe just a little light in the body.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear golden color with good head retention. Sweet bready malts in the smell. Taste is also on the sweeter side for a lager. Hops are present only a bit in the aftertaste. Not bad for a style I don’t really enjoy that much.
