3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle. Clear dark brown with clingy beige foam. Nose is lagery with citrus pith and a hint of caramel. Taste about the same. Medium light with lively carb. Good for a lager with BBQ. I had a few.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance- medium to dark (root beer) brown. Nice tan head. Light to moderate dissipation with some lacing, but nothing noteworthy.
Smell- clean. Roasted coffee. Caramel and malt. Mineral quality (similar to an oyster stout).
Taste- burnt coffee, cocoa,
Mouthfeel- light body. Not too much carbonation. Bitter up front. Very crisp.
Overall- good. Would recommend and have again. A solid American version of a classic German style.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled at D’vine’s in Columbia Heights from a 12oz bottle. Watery cola brown with some thick, creamy, off white head. Nose is standard, some malt, some clove, some nuts, a little over ripened fruit. Flavors are the same, sweet, mild fruit, mild malt. Watery finish.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Decent beer. Faint dark malt aroma. A little earthy. Bread crust brown color with a decent head. Average to thin palate with good carbonation. Not a heavy beer but coated the tongue well with flavor. Some roasted and biscuit flavors with a malt bite at the end. Not much of a hops presence, which wasn’t expected. Just OK.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at SGD. Deep mahogany pour with a bubbly white head. Faint malt aroma of toast and pecans. Flavor is similar and light with a mild nutty bitterness at the end. Meh, kind of boring.
