3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft sample at Cincy Beerfest 2014 on Fountain Square. Pours a deep clear orange color with a small off-white head. Notes of caramel, toast, nuts, straw, spice, and dried leaves. Light-medium bodied, with medium carbonation and a toasty mouthfeel. Really solid. The flavors and aromas really come through in this one, whereas other marzens can be a bit bland. Best of the style I’ve had in quite some time, probably the best American one. Ignore the Swede two spots before me on this one.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
"you can taste the orange peel more than the coriander, the smoky black patent malt almost taking over the flavor and aroma...like a slightly funky good black lager more than a wit. points for uniqueness. this beer was stout dark but light-medium bodied, and had a lot going on, but was still drinkable. the mix of flavors didn’t quite come together as much as i’d hoped as some of the wit character was a bit overpowered, but it tasted good. dry finish and feel. aroma a bit weak and unassuming, otherwise a good beer."
