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.

DrSilverworm (9465) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 31, 2013
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.

BigBeer45 (1372) - Michigan, USA - DEC 2, 2015
Sampled from a bottle, the beer had a dark gold pour with red and brown mixed in, there was a little haze (some bottles had more haze than others) and gave a one to two finger very faint off-white cover (bubbles had a faint yellow tint to them) that receded to a thinner layer and ring, the nose was malty with melanoidins like notes, a little toasted malt, toasted malt, caramel and some chocolate tootsie roll like notes, some bread, it had malt and bread sweetness, the hops were light on the nose, the flavors were malty, caramel, faint chocolate that resembled tootsie roll and bready, it had light spice hops, the flavor had some sweetness but not as sweet as the nose, the finish had a light hop bitterness with toasted malt and caramel following, it felt light t light medium on the mouth and was creamy, it had soft to average carbonation, this beer was on the sweet side for an Octoberfest beer, also, and this beer appears to be different than what the Short’s Noble Chaos that was made a few years ago, a good drink but not what I was expecting.

On tap at Crunchy’s, East Lansing. Clearish red-brown body, medium buff head. Bready nose with dry caramels and herbal hops. Medium body with light bitterness, dominated by floral, herbal hops and bready malts. Not bad.

flatmatt (1347) - Northville, Michigan, USA - AUG 21, 2010
12 oz bottle. Pours amber with an off-white head. Aroma is very nutty (peanut buttery specifically) and earthy with notes of caramel and dark fruit. Peanutty and toasty malt flavors blend with earthiness and bits of dark fruit and hop hints. Alcohol is just slightly more apparent than it probably should be for the ABV, but this is a nice version of the style.

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.
