sfontain (850) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 9, 2013
12 oz bottle. Amber pour, foamy white head. Grain and toast, nutty, biscuit, herbal, light caramel. Medium-full, quite sticky. One of the less impressive offerings I’ve had from Thirsty Dog.

Draft. Strong caramel with bread crust notes. Moderately rich malt character. Taste is similarly sweet but without being cloying. Overall ok. The taste doesn’t live up to the aroma and overall I prefer them drier.

Fritz123 (1477) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - OCT 7, 2015
Draft all over Akron. Pint at Larry’s. Pours a typical Marzen golden amber with very small head. Toffee, cramel, doughnut on the nose and taste is about the same. Nothing special but a decent, clean marzen which I like. Mdeium body and mild carb.

Aurelius (4773) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 30, 2015
Hyper-clear, bright orange. Somewhat standard longneck, strikes me as kinda English looking. Toffee, nutty malt aroma. Straw, dark syrup, low bittering, toasted, leans sweet. Medium weight. Toasted, almost cocoa finish. To style. ABC Liquors, Betton.

PorterPounder (6535) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 27, 2015
Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - Betton - 12 oz bottle. Dark orange sparkling pour, slight white head. Neutral aroma. Flavor has some nice mellow bitterness to it, some ripening vegetables and a hint of caramel in the finish. Clean, even mouthfeel. Overall, not bad - just plain and pedestrian.

JDBaker11058 (1647) - Maryland, USA - SEP 26, 2015
appearance: clear dark gold-to-brown, creamy near-white head. aroma: toasty, grainy, slightly nutty, a bit of caramel too. taste: sweetish and full of grainy, caramel malts, light brown sugar, toasted nuts. finish: lingering, slightly flabby, sweet and malty. notes: Tastes a little overly-rich for a true marzen, which I like to have a bit of zip in the finish. Not bad, though. Bottle at YMF courtesy of Rob.

On tap at Melt Bar Cleveland Heights. Pours a clear golden orange with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has lots of sweet grains with some bread and cookie notes. Flavor has sweet grain and cookie notes with a hint of butterscotch underlying.

Bottled. Poured into pint glass. This is a really nice refreshing lager but with a bigger and heavier body. A little darker than your average lager, this caramel colored brew is a real treat. Full of flavor but with the simple clean crispness that I want from a lager. Good stuff. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A nice, robust ale. Lingering palate and lots of maltiness. A dark copper with tons of flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rangerred (989) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - DEC 14, 2014
12oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours a nearly clear, dark brown with a one finger off-white head. Lacing is really lacking but head retention is better than average. Aroma is full of sticky sweet caramel, almost candy-like, with some hints of wet grass. Touches of plum in there as well. The flavor provides the same caramel candy notes but there is more of a roasty character. The hops are pretty muted but provided a bit of bitterness towards the finish. More dark fruit notes and light milk chocolate. Mouthfeel is a little stickier than I like but it works well here. Overall, a very nice American take on the style and one of the better ones out there.
