12oz. Bottle: Aroma of malt, wet grain, and slight spice. Poured amber in color with a small, loose, fizzy, off-white head that disappeared except for around the edges. Clear. Sparkling. Flavor is slightly sweet and lightly bitter. Tastes of malt, slight spice, light bread, light vegetables, and light hops. Light to medium body. Average, then lightly sticky and dry texture. Average carbonation. Malt, hop, bread, and vegetable finish is slightly sweet and lightly bitter.

Sampled on draft at CAH innsbrook. Thanks Shelly? Clear light amber pour with ring of offwhite head. Slightly apple nose with some caramel malts, which becomes more pronounced in the flavor, along with an astringent, old light bitter noble hop note. Medium watery body. A metallic twinge. Not that great. Nice label art though.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - SEP 15, 2010
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Total Wine Sterling.
Aroma: The nose is light and a bit pukey. There are some light grain and toast notes, but not much else.
Appearance: It pours a hazy amber color with a small, frothy, off-white head. The head doesn’t hang around long.
Taste: The pukey taste greets me up front and thankfully quickly passes. On the downside, there is an odd acridic bittterness paired with a slight toastiness. There is a touch of caramel in the background. This one almost seems more alt in style.
Palate: Light to medium body with average carbonation with a medium to longer, lightly bitter finish.
Overall: This one seems a bit out of balance and overall isn’t that great. I don’t recommend picking this one up off the shelf.

dmac (4212) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - SEP 15, 2010
22 oz bomber from Jonathan Ron. Poured a clear deep amber/orange body with an average to large frothy bright white head. Aroma of nutts, hint of smoke, uncooked brown bread and slight phenol notes. The body is full with a cramy full mouthfeel and medium carbonation with a slight lingering sweet aftertaste. Flavors of nutts, old bread, slight spice and soap. Despite the awesome price, under $3 for a bomber, this one was just meh.

This isn’t an Marzen? Hmmm... interesting. PoursOrange copper in appearance. Floral perfume fragrance; clean citrus as well. I’m tasting strong bread flavors. Very dry on the palate with some bitter hops trailing on the tongue. Overall, it’s easy drinking but I’m disappointed that it’s not a Marzen. This is bordering on false advertisement!

Pours a nice light brown. Light aroma of nicely toasted malt and hops. Taste is light to medium bodied with a nice balance of malt and hops. Surprisingly good.
