3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
50cl bottle, label as pictured.
Pours a deep, clear orange golden with a small, light beige head. Minimal retention, very little lacing.
Aroma is malty, with a slight floral note of hops. Wee hint of citrus.
Medium-bodied märzen with moderate carbonation; ok, thicker-than-usual mouth feel.
Taste, again, is dominated by slightly sweet malt. Ample bitterness in the middle and finish, with dry, hoppy after taste. Wee heavy stuff for a beer with just 5.1 % abv. Still, rather refreshing, characterful (though not fruity) and sessionable. A good "kellerbier".

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
pine tar pitch cask at spuyten. Pours a hazy deep woody amber with no head. Aroma is almost entirely diacetyl- butter with a sour funk and slight copper metallic going on. Slick diacetyl flavor, oily buttered popcorn, tart cherry pit astringency and more metallic in the end. Way off.
