Well, it is what it is. I imagine a brewer had a bar owner friend who got sick of having free pretzels on the bar, so this was a favor. It was a free 4 oz taster. It was okay. Don't know if I could drink a full one.

Well, it certainly delivers on the whole pretzel thing. Very bready, with aroma and flavor of a pretzel. Interesting, but not very good.

Right from the aroma you get Pretzel and thatís all you get. Then the first few ounces it is a pretzel beer you want. Then it is too much and then you pour out.

Pour is a dark brown with a small white head. Aroma is kinda like a pretzel. Flavor is exactly like a hot soft pretzel. Doughy, with that brown outside taste down to the salt on the outside. Like many have said there is no way you would drink a six pack of this let alone a 12 oz bottle. A small sample is plenty. Itís a gimmick sure but I canít knock it too bad since itís exactly as advertised.

Tasted at St. Louis Brewerís Guild Heritage Fest 2014 in a cool nonic sampler glass. Gimmicky and not something youíd want a whole pint of (much less a 6-pack, which is obviously why it isnít sold in stores), but to me this is a perfect special-release festival beer. It really did taste exactly like a Bavarian Soft Pretzel. Bready with some white-flour sweetness, slightly buttery and salty. I know what youíre thinking, that doesnít sound like a very good beer. Thatís true strictly speaking, but such as it is, one of my favourite brews sampled all night. If nothing else, it saved me a trip to Grantís Farm for my annual Amber Bock and pretzel fix.

Sampled at Heritage Fest. Amber and a little gaze in it. A white layer. Sure enough this smells like a pretzel. Tastes a little like it too. But it is almost doughy. Some wheat notes. Unique and certainly jot horrible.

Yes it tastes like a pretzel in my wheat. Novelty, but not a pintís worth. On tap at MacGregor.

I give this a better grade because it damn well tastes like pretzel. Some light crisp papery salt finish. Lots of pretzel. Bread yeast. Scored this by sneaking into the VIP section by acting like Omar from the Wire and watching and waiting. Some salt. On tap at DC Summerfest.

Sample at Hopfest 2014. Comes amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of pretzel and malt. Taste is pretzel, malt, and grain. Why?

Pretzel in a glass. Are you serious? Really good. Not much in the way of wheat, but I canít complain. Really tasty.
