3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
July 2008: Mad Brewer Blackberry Pils is honey-colored and hazy with a thin beige-colored head. It smells malty and has a really subtle berry quality. There is a good maltiness (slightly caramel) in the flavor along with some grassy/floral hops. The blackberry is there too, but is is definitely not in the forefront and it tastes real. This beer has a medium-light to medium body and average mouthfeel. Overall this beer is well-done and feels bigger than a Pils.
Draught sample (5.5% ABV) at The Brew Keeper brewpub in North Ridgeville, Ohio. Rating #4 for this beer.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Enjoyed on-tap at the brewpub.Infusion of flavour, it tastes like a lager with flavour albeit a bold strong dark fruity one, infused. Cheesy pilsner aroma. On the sweeter side. Drinkable. Saaz hops.

Draft sample at BK/MB. Poured amber color with an average white head that mostly lasted and produced fair lacing. Medium fruity aroma. Medium body with soft carbonation. Moderate sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of short duration. Ok brew, not my style.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slight fruity aroma from the berries but it’s buried in the flavor by the malt and some hops. Clean. Easy drinking.
