2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Caramel and toffee nose, with a metallic tinge. Cloudy orange, thick yellow head, poor retention. Lightly sweet unmalted grain initially, tinny at midpalate. Finishes more bitter with rotten cherries. Not the greatest maerzen or vienna, but drinkable and still better than macro swill.

12oz bottle. Poured a clear dark amber color with a two finger whitish head. Aroma brown sugar and mild spice. Taste was more sweet than bitter, with sweet caramel malts and some hop balancing. A strange bitter flavor throughout. Somewhat thin, very carbonated.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Appearance: Nice copper color with a small white head.
Aroma: Malty nose with hints of cardboard. Not very inspiring.
Flavor: Malt, alcohol, notes of grain, cardboard and a strong acridic bitterness. Sounds great, don’t it!
Palate: Medium carbonation with a medium mouthfeel and a medium-long, acridic finish.
Overall: I am getting less and less impressed with this brewery by the beer. Skip this one too.
