Aroma is strongly malty. Pours a goldish brown with just a bit of head from tap into a pint glass. Mouthfeel is medium/thick with a bit of carbonation bite. Beer is very malty and sweet with just a bit of a spice bite. Some caramel and oaty tastes in there as well.

Pours a very nice coppery color with white head. Caramel malts, some light hops, and some roasty character on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with more malt. Really great example of the style.

12oz bottle 12/9/10 (Whole Foods-Lamar)-Pours a hazy amber with a decent off white head. Aroma of malt and corn. Taste of malt, caramel, and sweetness. This medium bodied brew is not my favorite style but this one was rather tasty.

Best by: 29OCT11
A: pours a orange hued brown ale with near excellent clarity and a transient light beige head. A speckled mirror sheen remains outlined by foam. No lace.
S: smells like grain and some alcohol surprisingly. A hint of floral tones.
T: sweet, nutty, oxidized. Not too impressive. Should have some sweetness here.
M: medium bodied with light carb.
O: not privy to this one. I like marzen, but this was over oxidized.
Serving type: bottle

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Good piney aroma. Golden copper color with a white head. Crisp and clean palate. Not too heavy. Flavors were hoppy with a strong bitterness that lasted. Decent malt backbone but not much sweetness. Easy to drink and surprisingly good. Goes well with food.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Location: Draft at Ginger Man, Houston, 10/8/13
Aroma: It has a clean, grainy malt nose, with some caramel, and light hop notes
Appearance: This one pours a clear caramel color with a small head and some spotty lace
Flavor: It also has a clean, malty flavor, it is light-mid sweet, and has a mild bitterness
Palate: This is an easy drinking beer, with a clean feel, average carbonation, and an okay finish
Overall, clean seems to be the underlying theme of this beer. I thought this was a decent example of the style. I really wanted to score this higher, but I just couldn’t find a good reason to do so.
