3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at John’s Restaurant & Tavern in Winfield, IL., and dispensed to a shaker displaying a clear & bright, brownish amber color, with a frothy tan layer of head foam that reduced in size some, but persisted, and light spots & strands of lacing. The aroma was toasted, with some moments of roasted scent, modest caramel, and a touch of toffee. The taste followed similarly, adding some initial, grainy astringency, low to moderate hop bitterness that showed a bit of earthiness and lingering quality, carried to the palate by decent carbonation, in a medium body, with a pleasantly dry finish. Served a bit too cold, but I had little patience to let it warm, as it only seemed to affect the lacing anyway. Solid Marzen.
