COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Noble Chaos is an Oktoberfest/Marzen (German-style amber lager) with a subtle hop bouquet and toasted caramel malt flavors. It is a well-balanced beer that finishes fresh and clean. With a pleasant nose and medium body, this brew is a taste of the fall season.

Hazy amber color pour with a small foamy head. Aroma is sweet caramel malt, toasted nuts, a hint of spicy hops and vanilla. Flavor is slightly sweet and caramely with a bit of hops on the finish. Highly drinkable.

Bottle thanks to Styles; shared with jcwattsrugger. Pours brown. Nose and taste of caramel malts and herbal hops. Light pine finish. On the darker side of the style.

12 oz bottle; thanks to deyholla for the trade; clear dark amber with thick creamy tan head lingering; orange peel, stale malt, almost metallic aroma; sweet malt, dried fruit, honey; nose definitely seems off to me with obvious metallic notes; not as bad as the stout infections, but heading that way IMO; some sour is there in the flavors too; not sure what Short’s deal is lately

Pours a dark brown into my pilsner glass. Good lacing as it makes its way down. Nose has a toffee, caramel, roasted malt, touches of sweetness, and some Noble hops, but it’s all a bit soft and doesn’t fit that well. Strange that I normally really enjoy Short’s beers, but some of the more "everyday" ones aren’t up my alley. The taste is similar to the nose in that the flavors just don’t work all that well and the beer isn’t very integrated. Mouthfeel is moderate with okay carbonation. Drinkability is lower as there’s nothing I truly like about this beer, unfortunately. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 09-24-2010

Bottle pours deep amber with an off-white head. Aroma is packed full of malty notes, showing sweet caramel, toasted malt, and a slight hint of vanilla finished off by a light earthy hop. Flavor shows basically the same. Overall body is moderate, soft, and chewy. Not a whole lot about this one to keep interest other than it’s easy drinkability.

Clear brown. Aroma of light cocoa, caramel, some citrus hops. Flavor is malty and lightly hoppy. Nothing amazing going on.

FlacoAlto (3810) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - OCT 16, 2010
A solid pour into into my 25cl tulip glass produces a three finger thick, pale amber tinged, light tan colored head. The beer is a deep amber color that shows a lightly hazed, dark copper / amber hue when held up to the light. The aroma smells amply of caramelized malt, toasted grain and even some ample, for the color, roast character towards the finish. A touch of lightly spicy and herbal hop notes lie underneath the more dominant malt character and at times gets completely lost within it.

Lightly sweet tasting with a soft herbal hop character up front, but this quickly disappears underneath a soft, but distinctive roasted malt in the finish that tastes a bit like burnt toast, but with out the burnt bitterness. This is very lightly roasty, but it does have quite a bit more roast character than one would guess by the color of this beer. The middle has a caramelized malt character that evokes thoughts of berries, this also is ultimately out muscled by the roast character in the finish, but unlike the hops it never quite disappears. The texture of this beer is nicely appropriate for a beer for the Autumn, it is a touch chewy and has some a character that leaves it lightly clinging viscously to the palate.

What a weird beer; it is interesting and tasty, but the roast character keeps throwing me off for some reason, it doesn’t really seem to mesh with the rest of the beer. Still, I am definitely enjoying this beer, it just might have a bit too much roast character.

Bottle via a trade. Pours with a hazy copper body with a fading tan head. Aroma is sweet, toast, corn, bread, berries, light buckwheat, honey, a touch grassy, some biscuit. A standard but good Marzen aroma. Flavors of sweet, earthy, nutty, caramel, corn, biscuit, quite bitter for the style. Earthy and floral as well. Quite dry. Nicely crisp. Seems like a well made beer to me, quite enjoyable for the style, although not exactly traditional. Lively bubbles, a bit thin, dry and brisk. Lingering bitterness. A tasty beer.

Not as good or drinkable as some of the other Oktoberfest beers I’ve had, even those that are made by larger breweries.

Bottle. Pours a hazy amber, CO2 bubbles cling to the side of the glass, minimal head. Aromas of light malt and hay from the hops. The hay/grass flavor comes through to the taste, not unpleasant. A little taste of alcohol in the background. Abundant carbonation tickles the tongue.
