2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from ketchepillar- 12 oz bottle- poured transparent darken amber, slightly heavy carbonation, white head quickly bubbled away. Aroma of roasted malt and a touch of sweetness. Hits the mouth with a medium body, the malt tastes a little old, some hops on the finish. Had great potential, but the malt is off to me.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a transparent copper amber with a thin ring of white head. Sweet grainy caramely German malty nose has a touch of noble hoppiness. Body starts lightly sweet with some hay and earthy notes and some caramel toward a thinner finish. Pretty true to style and drinkable.

12 oz bottle coutsey of pepsican. Aroma had some spicey bitter and toasted grains. Amber body with decent head. Flavor was sweet bitter to start with. Flavor got more of a malted caramel from middle to finish with a sweet mild bitterness aftertaste. Decent brew and first from Iowa rated.

Beautiful red pour with a medium head and lacing. Nice malt and grain aroma. Very sweet malt flavor with a hearty body that ends a little bitter sweet.

12 oz bottle-Trade w/pepsican. Pours a clear amber color w/a slight head & good lacing. Roasted malt aroma. Flavors of roasted malt, toffee, caramel, & bread dough. Solid, easy drinking brew, more of an everyday drinking Amber Lager (they call it a Lager), not one of those special, one off, Oktoberfests. Very Yuenglingish! Definite session brew, slight bitter finish. Thanks for this one Andy!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is a good lager. Amber color. Dry, medium bodied malt flavor with some caramel. I thought it was more of a Vienna than a marzen.
