COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 (7122) - 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!

Quite nice but little in complexity. Still a solid unfiltered lager, caramelly malt and smooth. Serving: Bottle

EithCubes (4818) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 9, 2014
500mL bottle, nose is wonderfully sunny citrus with slight grain, good malt character, lighter toasty and grassy notes, medium hay. Lightly hazy golden leaning toward orange, strong carbonation yields only a short white head. Crisp medium body, semi-dry with strong sunny malt character up the middle, slightly spicy and grassy hops with a bready and lightly earthy finish. Light bitterness and a touch of warmth, grainy and fizzy, very slight candyish note. Some slightly unclean/impure character in the aftertaste but it’s minimal; sweetness really accumulates on the palate with volume. Feels much larger than it actually is, but remains rather drinkable.

Nickls (1824) - SE DC, Washington DC, USA - JUN 7, 2014
Tap. One of my favorite bands, hope the beer is as good! Sour hay and citrus notes in the aroma with some slight biscuit presence. Wheaty sour, some earthy zesty hops, refreshing and crackery. Light slick body. Not bad but not great.

Pours a caramel color with a white head. Grain, malt, caramel and toffee aroma. Sweet malt, caramel, toffee, toast, apple, grain and light hop flavors. Medium light body and average carbonation. Sweet taste and a sweet malt and earthy hop finish.

I can certainly taste the butter in this beer. Pours amber with good head and lacing. Grainy and buttery with some sour finish. A good session beer. Tap at Churchkey.

popery (1392) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 21, 2014
Pours a deep amber-orange color. It’s somewhat hazy, maybe medium hazy, not that "medium hazy" really means anything to anyone besides me. The head is a touch yellow. It puffs up big and pretty thick but fades away after a minute, a bit like a hefe. The aroma is malty and pleasant. Nice doughy malt flavor with a touch of caramel. Reminds me of the Cismontane single malt beers that I’ve been working through. The taste has a good dose of malt sweetness, though it still finishes fairly clean with a very light grassy note. It’s a relatively rich German lager. Less hoppy than expected. Smooth feel, full for the strength. Solid beer. Easy to drink and satisfying. Not terribly dramatic but the malt flavor is very nice.

translucent gold with a thick white head and a fair amount of particulates. clingy medium body with medium carbonation.

aroma: pilsner malt, wet stone minerality, floral herbal hops.

taste: bready nitty yeast, pilsner malt, stoney minerality, floral hops. there’s a bitting sulphur note that is somewhat unpleasant.
