Balanced malty marzen ale by a local brewery. I enjoyed this beer and would buy it again but something seemed missing from it

Bottle. Used to drink this stuff when I lived in RI. A good go to local brew. Not worth buying for the price out of state if you see it.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This local boy is copper colored and smells as much like a brown ale as a marzen lager. In any case, the smell is very malty. Drinking his beer is is like eating a slice of fermented white bread. The brewer’s description lists the hops used, but the low IBU figure reflects that they are lost in the mix. Medium body, soft finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle in a shaker. Pours copper with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of toasted and nutty malts with floral and slightly citrusy hops. Flavor strong on the malts. Average texture, and a little smoother than most of this style. A decent beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle, thanks to my mom for picking up the sixer. Mildly hazy amber-orange color, medium head fading to minimal, leaving a little lacing. I usually find oktoberfest beers to be boring, but I can tell from the first sip that this one is a good one. It has enough hops to give it a bit of flavor to the typical savory malt. A touch of bitterness. Pronounced carbonation, but satisfactory texture. A good pairing to my grape leave rolls.

Has a murky orange color with a citrus like aroma. Very zesty bubbles. It doesn’t taste bad but seems to lack something I can’t nail down. The citrus hops lingers on your tongue.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours pale amber into a Sam glass. Bright white head with excellent retention recedes leaving spot lacing to coat surface. Sour, rotting fruit aromas. Sour caramel upfront turning to bitter sour strawberry seeds in the lasting finish. Yuck. Drain pour...

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Crisp deep orange pour with a white film of head. Dry, clean, spicy and firm Vienna malts with a biscuity grain note. Light body- slightly oily in texture. Firm malty body- a bit worty, however, with a ton of sour dough character- almost tart. Oily and sour dough dominated. Not really dry enough with only a nondescript mild peppery finish. OK.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle sampled on 7/3/08: Pours a transparent deep golden with a thin coating of white head. Aroma of toasted grainy German malts with a touch of lemon citrus and noble hops. Body starts semi-effervescent and semi dry with some grainy flavors and a touch of smoke and tartness toward the finish.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Asgard, Cambridge MA, October 2009. Clear copper colour. Very fruity aroma and flavour. So much so that I wondered whether they had not entirely pulled through the Newport Storm Blueberry that it had only just replaced. I was assured that was not the case but you never know. It was certainly not entirely to my taste. Fairly sweet with hints of bready malt. But the fruit just kept returning. Think I’ll give this another go some time.
