Unfiltered Lager

Let’s be honest: You’re probably more likely to take illegal substances while you listen tothe heavy metal band Mastodon. But Mastodon and their crew had the opportunity to get shitfaced legally while they were playing the recent Sonisphere stop in Hockenheim, Germany on Saturday. Stephan Michel of Mahr’s Brau brewery created a limited edition Mastodon Premium Lager that was handed out to Mastodon and their crew at the show. They were reportedly "swallowing

Ughsmash (7503) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 29, 2013
500mL bottle. Poured light-medium golden with a short, dense white head. The aroma picked up toasted bread and honey malts with earth and lesser citrus accents.. clean and well-balanced. The flavor found similar stuff.. bready notes, honey, and a kiss of molasses at the core, with light grainy citrus and toasted earthy notes around.. somewhat tart citrus and tasty sweeter malts on the long finish. Light-medium bodied with nice, creamy carbonation on the palate.. smooth feel and flow.. nice one!

TAR (2595) - Marshall (Asheville area), North Carolina, USA - MAY 6, 2016
Draft @ Backcountry Pizza in Boulder: Clear, darker shade of gold. Creamy halo of foam. Maltcentric aromas of cookie, toasted baguette, Munich, lemony Spalter, piecrust and a hint of melanoidins. Stiff carbonation. Assertive breadcrust flavors emerge alongside sturdy poundcake and soft tobacco. Very malt-forward and rich, with a Munich-derived toffee-drizzled pecan signature throughout. Minerals and a leafy, herbal hop punch ward off the sugars adequately. A gripping toast of pils malt shows a vanilla cookie firmness with a slightly overstated raspiness, as the juicy malt continually enriches the mineral-laden core with considerable brawn. Orangey fruitiness augments the fat maltiness. Lemon hops sizzle at the sweetly malty finish, which reveals an intricate tapestry of vanilla wafer cookie, earthy pecan skin and silky toffee notes. A slammable malt bomb that’s free of flaws and brimming with Franconian character.

Pailhead (6273) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - APR 10, 2016
Bottle: The aroma consists of mild grass and cereal notes. It pours a mostly transparent golden-orange with a touch of haze from some very fine sediment. It has a one finger white head that fades to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. There is some sporadic thin webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a touch of mild honey and cereal sweetness. The finish has mild grass/straw and the tiniest hint of apple. It’s light bodied with somewhat soft carbonation and mouthfeel. Overall, it’s decent and drinkable...nothing offensive, but nothing to get excited about either. A solid summer lawn mower beer.

Marheb (4329) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 2, 2016
(Bouteille): Un nez fermier, céréalier et miellé avec une touche d’agrumes pales, même chose en bouche sur un corps moelleux, adéquatement sucré.

Tallahassee, Fl. - Beer Stop - 500 ml bottle. Hazy, light orange pour, quickly fading off-white head. Aroma is pretty much neutral, a hint of malt. Flavor has some light date fruitiness, a hint of molasses, some ripening vegetables. Mouthfeel is pleasantly thick.

runaway (76) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 31, 2015
Smells of hay, tastes of grass and toasty biscuit. Cloudy golden orange with thin off white bread. A slight bitter/funk hit at the end. Ok but I know I’ve had a better zwickel.
