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.

12oz bottle, thanks to umich03jm. Mostly clear amber color. Good thin off-white head. Good rows of lace. Medium body. Smooth, crisp lighter carbonation, lightly slick finish. Good caramel, toasty malt, some earthy hop, hint of chocolate, very nice. Moderate bitter taste, lighter sweet. Great oktoberfest. Good to enjoy with my sub, but also very drinkable on it’s own.

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.

Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a slight maple hue and a tan head that dissipated completely. Aroma has a relatively strong caramel note with a bit of roast and bread. Flavor begins sweet with caramel but mellows a roasted malts grow with a bread note.

Sampled with Moreau and Andrew at GABF 2012. Had this towards the end of the night, after nearly 75 beers and my thoughts were "it’s good for an oktoberfest/Marzen!" Will need to seek this one out for more defined notes but my general thought was that it was good, not great.

Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate chocolate, caramel, and some spicy hops. It pours a slightly hazy brownish-orange with an off-white head that has okay retention. The flavor starts with lots of chocolate and caramel. The finish has light-moderate earthy and spicy hops along with some light roastiness. Medium bodied with soft carbonation and mouthfeel. This comes across more like a malty Brown Ale.

Strykzone (5386) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - OCT 22, 2011
12 oz. bottle bought in Michigan. A big fluffy off white head slowly falls in on itself leaving nice lacing. The beer is cloudy and tea colored. This smells very nutty and has lots of nutmeg with softer spices and fruit. Delightful. The flavor is also nutmeg with more spice and a decent hop bite. There is also some earth and very light fruit. Was sorry to see the bottom of the glass with this beer. The finish was hoppy and fruity. A different but very nice version.

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

Mahogany with a slowly fading medium tan topper and some flare lacing. Aroma is noble with toasted malt, light skunk and some notes of bready malt and toffee. Taste of toffee, toasted malt, ripe fruit and mild tannins and finishes up with a hint of bitterness. A touch sticky and not that sweet.
