3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle from grownfool- thanks again, Brian! Pours a clear orange-amber color with a huge, rocky, foamy off-white head that leaves some spots of lacing. Aroma of caramel, Munich, and toasted malts, rye, orange peel, and grass. Flavor of the same variety of malts, toasted sugar, rye, and a mineral note that washes it out on the end. However, another toasty malt note shows up in the aftertaste for a nice lingering finish. Decent marzen.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear deep copper colored body that sits beneath a tall, mostly white head.
Big candy malt aroma. Nutty.
Light malt sweetness in the flavor with little or no hop flavor or aroma.
A bit thin.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy brown copper in color. Weak malty aroma. Some smoke is detectable. Slight toasty malt flavor with a medicinal hops aftertaste... like aspirin. Overall, it’s OK. Some complexity but it’s a bit watered down. Not sure I dig the medicinal aftertaste but at least it’s drinkable.

Thanks to jcwattsrugger for the share. Pours opaque caramel brown with a white head. Nose is biscuit, malt, caramel, and a mild toffee-like sweetness. Flavor is similar with vague sweetness finishing with mild bitterness. Enjoyable, sessionable beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Growler pour courtesy of jcwattsrugger. It pours amber with off white head. The aroma is mildly spicy and earthy with crystal malts in the background. The taste is pretty crisp and fresh and offering up modest notes of spicy hops, earthy hops and a sense of floral hops as well as some sweet malts and sweet crystal like malts.

12 oz bottle. Pours bright copper with a thick white head. Nose is fairly standard lager (although it’s an ale) with some small hints of spiciness. Taste is very bitter, with a nice malt profile. Not my favorite style but nice to try one.
