Seasonal on tap. Nice red hue with an off white head. Smooth maltiness with a big alcohol that warms the soul. If available, a must try while there

From June 2007 tasting notes, sampled at Thirsty Bear. Clear golden with a white head. Has a light, grassy, herbal noble hop aroma. Flavor has a malty base with a touch of light caramel, noble hops, clean lager yeast, moderately bitter, moderate residual sweetness. Has some alcohol kick too. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

Ernest (7364) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 15, 2007
Draught, Thirsty Bear. Head is mostly diminishing. Body is medium to dark amber. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (herbs), with notes of peach, honey, cantaloupe, light note of alcohol. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation, lightly to moderately alcoholic. This and especially the Marzen were the highlights of the TB experience...this brew seemed like a slightly stronger version of the Marzen, in fact, and it’s mainly the extra alcohol that makes it a bit less enjoyable for me.
