Draft at Sippin by the River ’05. Lots of brewers sporting their fest beers. Sierra with an honest example of the style. Great malt, easy on the hops, clean fermentation.

tekstr1der (345) - New Hampshire, USA - DEC 27, 2015
Thin, light yellow color - looks unimpressive. Aroma has a dankness from a hop style of which I’m not a huge fan. Same comes through in the flavor, which while uninteresting, is fairly smooth. Pretty disappointing overall.

Beerandhockey8 (342) - Three Forks, Montana, USA - OCT 10, 2015
From 12oz bottle to dimpled mug. Pour is a copper color, thin sparkling white head. Nose is roasted malt, barley, caramel. Kind of light however. Taste is light bodied, mostly sweet. Finishes sparkly and crisp.

Looks like a wheat beer. Smells like an amber. Not bad for an Oktoberfest but still a little bland ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

YigSvartka (274) - Manitoba, CANADA - APR 16, 2015
Translucent mahogany with a minimally sized white head. Very nice aromatic notes consisting of malt, caramel, toffee, nuts, and a wee bit of roast. Light bodied and quite smooth. Absolutely delectable flavour. Malt, caramel, toffee, nuts, vanilla, and nutmeg combine to create an extremely satisfyingly smooth marzen with some hop present during the finish.

bottle. Poured clear auburn with a thin off-white head. Sugar and spice in the aroma. Medium body, average carbonation with a slight tart finish. Caramel malt flavour, a bit smokey with some spicey hops.

Bottle. Deep amber body, off-white head. Aroma is mostly malty with bread and caramel. Light overripe fruit notes. Smells sweet and tastes sweet. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter.

tomer (2850) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - JAN 18, 2015
At a tasting, thanks, smallish bubbly head, quite clear deep red color, aroma of caramel and honey cake, flavor of dark brown sugar with some dried fruits and a hint of licorice, quite sweet, light bitterness. Fair.

Bottle shared with rayaron at a tasting. Clear orange-amber with a off-white head. Aroma of caramel, honey, fruity notes. Sweetish with taste of honey, fruits, caramel, biscuits, mild bitterness. Light-medium bodied, feels too old.
