Munich-style Lager brewed for Farmhaus. Farmhaus chef Kevin Willmann selected this lighter style for its ability to pair well with dishes on his menu.

vyvvy (5857) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - OCT 28, 2012
Sampled at Augusta Bottoms Beer Fest - Pours clear copper / orange with an off-white head. The aroma has smooth caramel lager maltiness, good amount of toast, light spice and smooth hazelnut. Medium smooth body with a minor amount of carbonation. The flavor start with slick lager malt, dry caramel, spice, toffee and a nice balance to everything. The finish adds some crusty bread. Really nicely done.

Bottle. From perennial. Tropical fruity but based on caramel malt. Glowing red amber with beige head. Good lacing. Balanced. With malt slightly winning overt in the taste expression, with a nutty biscuity ness. This has a slick drink ability and hop expression that is unique to the style.

seymour (1895) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - DEC 29, 2012
Tasted from bottle into a snifter. It poured a mostly clear orangish-amber color with persistent creamy off-white foam and a little lace. Aromas and flavors of bread, sweet malts, caramel, faint noble hops, faint black pepper. Smooth and balanced, it tasted a bit like an Oktoberfest but fruitier with a mellow spiciness. Mild, balanced and unassuming. Good stuff.

Strykzone (6719) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - APR 5, 2013
Pint from a bottle at Perennial. A darker honey gold pour with a kind of funky head. Light lacing remained. This beer was grainy, malty, and nicely hopped. Fruit was nice and it had a moderate bitterness. Some toastiness and a bit of caramel. Nice beer.

Bif (2041) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 20, 2016
On tap at the brewery. Pours hazy coppery color with a small head. Aroma of some malt sweetness, grain and citrus in the background. Taste of malt sweetness, trace of fruit and grain. Nice bitterness and a clean finish. Moderate body, crisp and flavorful. Enjoyable beer that goes down easy.

phaleslu (9376) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 18, 2012
Draft at Perennial. Pours a bit darker than a typical Dortmunder/helles; rather than a clear gold, this one is more of an orange color with a small off-white head. Notes of pale and cereal malts, grassy hops, straw, crackers, and toasted sugar. Light-bodied, with medium-high carbonation and a crisp, dry mouthfeel. I split a small one with my wife, so I need to try this one again and re-rate when I get a better handle on it.

wxman (1744) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - OCT 20, 2012
Pours a clear pale amber with a nice white head. Slight bready aroma. Sweet toasted malt, buttery, bready and light hop taste. A really good Munich/Marzen! BTW, this beer is identified as a Munich style lager by the brewmaster. There is nothing Dort or Helles about it. Don’t know who entered that into the description here, but it goes against the brewer’s description and the taste, overall appearance and mouth feel.
