2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at brewery. Pours a deep amber with an aroma of fine malt. Flavor is weak roasted malt followed by a tangy sweetness. Palate is watery. Needs to be more assertive; finishes too watery.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Oktoberfest with ale yeast? Could be interesting, but after tasting, you’d as soon think it’s a gimmick to brew faster. Clear copper-red, diminishing off-white head. Husky, cerealic toasted malts dominate the leafy and herbal hops. Slightly fruity in mouth, soda pop like mouthfeel that manages to develop a minor creaminess, but can’t hide the extreme carbonation. Simply not very tasty.

Draught. Pours mahagony with a rocky tan film. Sweet brown sugar caramel nutty malt (grain, meal) aroma. Sweet caramel malt flavor with a lightly bitter finish with some fruit notes (peach). Thin and medium bodied watery palate.

Had this at the brewery. I liked the amber color of this. Nice and smooth and well-balanced between the malts and the hops.

tap at brewpub-pours a cloudy ambe hue with a decent white head. some lacing going on. smells like a scotish ale-really malty. a decent body with mostly carmel malt flavors going on. A marzen? far from that!

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
After two crappy Wynkoop draws (IPA and ESB) this one tasted like the best beer in the world. Of course that is because the first two were terrible. A cup of coffee would have tasted like the best beer ever after the first two. This one was decent, but not great. It made my burrito taste better than the first two I had and actually made an unenjoyable experience ok. The service was pretty poor, but the food was good, the beer was warm and the evening was, well, it was an evening.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tasted in Colorado (Denver). Tasted at Wynkoop Brewing Company. For me, no flagship here. Slight malty aroma, grassy grainy taste with a slight but muted bitter finish.
