3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A solid marzen, meaning that it’s not overly sweet like many seem to be these days. Bready and light, some bitterness from generic hops. The unfiltered nature of the beer smooths the edges, however, and makes the beer.

Hazed, reddish amber appearance with a small white head that faded fast and left little lacing. Aroma of toffee and caramel malts. Earthy, sweet malt flavor with a little spiciness at the end. Aftertaste was a bit mucky

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12 oz bottle into a German style mug.
Appearance: The body has a dark amber color with good clarity. From the pour I had a light tan head of foam which slowly settles to a wispy thin film layer. Lacing is minimal and slick.
Smell: The aroma has you basic sweet malty character with hints of hops.
Taste/Palate: It’s malty up front and brings nice caramel and bready sweetness to the party. Mid way through hop bitterness comes in and adds some balance and light herbal spice. The feel is right about middle of the road and nicely carbonated.
