2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap, Seattle. Pours a clear orangish copper body with a small fizzy off-white head that faded to a thin film. The nose is slightly sweet vienna malt and a little huskiness, no perceptible hops. The flavor is a mix of husky and sweet malts with minimal to a nonexistent hop profile. Seriously lacking in body, it’s very watery and thin. Fizzy soft carbonation. A bit of a chemical like note emerges the more I have of this. Not exactly a stellar example of the style.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Serving: Draft from Rock Bottom Charlotte. It pours a decent amber color with a small white head. A touch of malt sweetness, caramel, and toast in the nose. The flavor follows suit with the mouthfeel being a bit lifeless. A touch less sweetness wouldn’t hurt this brew.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft - pours pale amber with white head and decent lacing. Nose is floral and grain. Light citrus to the mouth. Harsh first sip, but it gets better. Sweet for the style. A nice consolation drink for not going to the hofbrauhaus. A tad hoppy.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Has some very light malt and caramel notes, has a nice lasting head. Taste is like a typical Oktoberfest, rather light with a roast finish.

On tap Colorado Springs. Clear orange copper hue with a rich white head, mostly lasting & good lacing. Brew has a light aroma of biscuits. Flavor of biscuit, caramel and toffee. Not as bold as some Marzens and bit on the dry side, but overall this was a very enjoyable beer & one you would be happy to fill your stein with.
