2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
A fairly good session brew – it pours up a cloudy murky brown body sporting a nice foamy head that dissipates rather quickly and leaves very little lacing on the sides of the mug. Scents and flavors of the standards: hops, malts and some fruits of some sort. Nothing over the top but is a good brew to have during a few sessions.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a light caramel-amber color with a huge creamy-soapy orange-white head that lingers and left good lacing. The aroma was very malty, vegetal and sweet. The flavor was very sweet corn, vegetal malts and a bit of pretzel dough. Long finish with a growing vegetal presence. Moderately full bodied and very smooth. Ok.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy amber body under a one finger fizzy off-white head that left some nice lacing. The aroma is grainy and husky with a bit of an earthy and dusty yeastiness. It doesn’t smell very refined. The flavor is a bit husky and grainy as well with minimal to no hops. A little bit of a murky yeastiness on the back end along with some slight caramel sweetness. Light to medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation and a lingering grainy finish. Not exactly a star amongst the style.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Light bodied, pale orange pour with non-existent head and persistent bubbles. Aroma of unleavened bread, semi-sweet malt, light fruity esters. Lacks true depth. Zippy carbonation. Taste is floured dough, under-ripe banana, light chalk, a little metallic. Lacks the clean, crisp profile that is usually coveted from a German-style bier. Not good.

From bottle. Bit of sweet apple and diacetyl, banana and sulfur. Murky dull brown with thin off-white head. Medium body with medium carbonation. Starts sweet and malty with caramel and banana, light yeast. Smooth carbonic dry finish with light nutty sweet after.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Luscious hay and grass danking across pale/pils malt, very floral hops even pushing the sweetness a bit. Pours dark reddish golden, fizzy with a quickly-dissipating cola head. Taste is sweet and lightly grainy, hints of metal, otherwise sweet floral hops with a touch of citrus and mineral, good straightforward malt flavor. Medium body and somewhat refreshing, light booze in at the end. Not super clean, but actually held up pretty well!

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
[Bottle] Hazy amber in color. Soapy white head. Sweet malts in the aroma. Signs of oxidation (papery) in the nose. Taste is light floral hops, toffee, grass/straw and caramel corn. Didn’t see a ’best by’ date on the bottle, but seems like age and distance was not too kind to this beer. Tasting notes from 2012.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tampa, Fl - Total Wine & More - 11.2 oz bottle. Pours a slightly murky medium copper with a soft off-white head. Aroma has some brown sugar accents, a hint of molasses. Flavor is sweet and belly warming with some dates, a touch of chocolate, a bit of brown sugar sweetness. Mouthfeel has a nice thick textured feel to it. Not bad at all.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a murky brown into pint glass. Earthy and vegetable aroma. Has almost a carrot or tomato soup like aroma. It is odd but not as off putting as it might seem. Flavor is bready and earthy. Has a wheat characteristic that lingers. Very interesting beer and I enjoy trying a style that I have not had before. Will have to seek out more beer in this style to compare.
