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.

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

This bottle was courtesy of Strykzone. Poured an amber color with a big off white head and lots of good lacing as it settled. Nose of roasted malts with nuts and spices. Medium in body. Smooth mouthfeel. Flavor is again some nuts and ripe fruit. Nice lightly bitter finish. Quite a nice beer.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled 8/24/2012. Pours lightly hazy orange copper color with a 1 finger fairly dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of pear, apple, biscuit, caramel, toast, molasses, nuttiness, earth, and herbal spiciness. Very nice aromas with good strength and balance. Spot on to what I expected. Taste of big caramel, toast, biscuit, nuttiness, pear, apple, light chocolate, toffee, molasses, earth, and herbal spiciness. Lingering notes of light fruit, caramel, toast, biscuit, toffee, nuttiness, light chocolate, earth, and herbal spiciness on the finish for a good bit. Nice balance and robustness of flavors; with minimal cloying sweetness on the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a creamy and fairly slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a slight warming after the finish noticed. Overall this is a great Oktoberfest! Nice robust flavors with good balance; very smooth and easy to drink. Highly enjoyable stuff; this was a lot better than I expected.

bottle thanks to senseimike. Aroma is full of toast and bread crust. small off white head, good lacing. slightly hazy deep red color. Flavor is initially very bitter with a sweet malt backbone that turns to a chocolate and roast in the finish. moderate carbonation. man, the finish is just too roasty and chocolate for me, almost astringent. very drying.

FlacoAlto (4147) - 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.

Tasted blind: This is a cloudy dark amber brew. It’s got a big earthy nose w/ some toasty malt as well. This is grassy and herbal, fairly dry and slightly nuttey. Its creamy carbonation is complimented by mild bitterness in the finish. This is a tasty Oktoberfest.

esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 1, 2013
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.

UPDATED: SEP 1, 2013 Bottle. Pours a dark amber color with a small foamy head that fades to a ring. Aromas are caramel, grain, grass, and some light chocolate too. Taste has a nice light grainy sweetness and light bitterness. More malty and flavorful than most marzens. Nice caramel, light toffee and fruit, and some grassy hops. Medium body, goes down smooth. Awesome Oktoberfest.
