3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
170715. I picked up this bottle from Queens Plaza Beer and Wine. The label art catches the eye and the bottle sets itself apart from others on the shelf. I can easily envision myself sitting in that hammock drinking bottle after bottle of this beer.
Deep copper almost red colour with a thin soft cushion of foam. The aroma is all toffee and caramel and is really quite sweet. The flavour is similar to the aroma with a big malt finish. While the beer is full bodied it is not overly chewy and the label is certainly right when it says that this beer will leave you wanting more.

Kinda stinky marzen malt aroma, nutty, improves as it warms/airs. Clear, tawny, dilute tea colored. OK label. Straw flavor, a little molasses /burnt sugar, twangy. Low bittering. Medium body, slippery mouthfeel. Boring. ABC Liquors, Betton.

Very enjoyable brew with heavy toasted caramel and toffee malt, crystal and molasses malts. A slight grassy and citrus hop that balances well. Nice heavy malt with good crisp finish.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 ounce bottle - $2.29 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours a crystal clear, toasted brown body with a small-sized, wispy, near white head.
Smell: Toasted malts with an instantaneous, distinct husky scent that grabs you, though not in a good way. A little wisp of herbal hops, though, there’s little to the aroma beyond the huskiness.
Taste: Bready, lightly toasty malts with a noticed husky quality to it. Lightly sweet, with a low touch of caramel. Modestly fruity. Herb tinged hoppiness, also low, with little bitterness present. Encroaching wearying wateriness as you proceed to the empty finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-light carbonation.
Overall: A lacking, humdrum lager. No Mas.
