3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Beer on the Wall, which has become a favorite of mine due to the rapidly rotating inventory, fair shipping rates, and sturdy, reshippable cardboard boxes that they ship with. This one pours chill hazy deep copper with minimal head. Aroma is caramel malt, slight brown sugar, toffee, and red wine grapes. Tastes caramel malty for the most part, with notes of berry, brown sugar, almond, walnut, and cabernet.

Bottle. Pours amber with thin lacing. Dark pitted fruits are sensed via olfactory and tastes of maltiness and nutiness. A nice lager.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub. .3L sample size. Slightly toasted malty sweet aroma with some metallic notes present as well. Do I detect some chocolate malts as well? Aroma is a touch faint. Transparent amber color with a small, off-yellowish head that is rather quickly dissipating. Slightly sweet, doughy, toasty maltiness present to start. Light hoppiness to finish. Rich, chewy, drinkable. Tasty, with a lightly drop hoppiness in the end.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rich malty aroma. Amber color with a fine white head. Starts with smooth malt. Followed by carbonation and a hint of roasty malt, finishing with carbonation on the tongue and more malt. Struggling to find the hops, if any. Better than Bud. Much better.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
THis is quite tasty for the style. Rich smooth and malty, with just a hint of honey sweetness. Pours a deep amber coloring with a brilliant tan head, that fades into some bubbly fizz. Easy to drink.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Auburn ruby, thin head, light lacing. Nose of light sweet caramel and grassy hops. Very faint. The flavor is moist like wet dog and underhopped malt; light sweetness. The finish is tinny and watery, needs either more body or more sweetness, but I think that’s synonymous with this one.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark amber color and nice lacing. That’s about all I can say that’s good. Taste is bland, mouthfeel is a little weak, aroma is non-existent. Not very impressive. Aftertaste is on the malty side, which is good too. I’ve had better marzen’s.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I enjoyed this! Aroma is very malty and nutty. So far so good. The color is an orangish/amber color with a off-white head with tons of little bubbles. Taste is malty, slightly nutty and overall very pleasing. Very nice beer!

2.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub. Dark amber in color with a white head. Complete lack of an aroma. Medium malt sweetness. This lager seems much lighter in flavor than the coor would suggest. Tongue tingly finish without very much aftertaste.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
I went to the restaurant last night and while I’m not much of a fan of German lagers this one was actually pretty good. I never expected to find a German ber this aromatic, dark and flavorful. Pretty good.
