On tap at Bearden Beer Market. Coppery orange, thin but sturdy white head. Smells like caramel and white bread toast, which is also a pretty good deScription of the flavor. Finishes with a subtle hop bite.

Gold/amber pour with white head. Aroma is light toasted malt and a corn like tone. Flavor is light sweet start with a touch of bitter on the finish. Carbonation a little over the top for me. Dry finish. Not my favorite style, but for the corn flavor and aroma ok

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz bottle from Wegmans, King of Prussia, PA. A brilliant golden amber colour with a fast fading cream head; simple malty aroma - almost like a brown ale; straightforward malty flavour, slightly metallic towards the end; and a malty finish.
This reminds me of the time, many years ago, when I was training to be an Analytical Chemist and one of the exercises we were set was to identify and measure the metals contained in a sample of Newcastle Brown Ale from a metal can - we didn’t know at the time that the supervisor had spiked the sample, so were rather alarmed to discover that it contained lethal quantities of tin! Anyway this is probably how it would have tasted.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle, screw-top but thankfully brown glass. Nose of thin dark malt with earth and dark caramel and some roast, touch of candy sweetness, but dirty. Pours is a red-amber-orange gradient with a short off-white head. Thin watery body with light but effective bitterness, blink-and-you-miss it malt, touch of candyish sweetness but dries out quickly and thickly. Dirty and makes me check to see if someone dropped their cigarette butt in my glass, and aftertaste is stale.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Crisp deep copper coloured body with a light brown highlight and a very thing tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, alcohol, caramel, light nuts and a decent amount of earth - but relatively clean scents. Medium-bodied; Assertive toasted malt flavours with a little spices, some stronger alcohol and a rather pungent metallic and earthy kick at the very end. Aftertaste shows some caramelised sugars, some tannic and drying herbal notes and a bit of alcohol. Overall, a decent marzen, but not great - as expected. Nice to see Yueng try something new, but this one isn’t executed that great. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Liqour Outlet in Boonton, New Jersey on 09-September-2012 for US$1.15 sampled at home in Washington on 16-September-2012.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12oz bottle. Fitlered dull copper-orange. Thin off-white head. Sweet, tastes of corn or other adjuncts, in addition to some bland malt. Pretty shabby offering, the corn sweetness doesn’t fit the style at all. Just barely drinkable, certainly cheap and sub-par.
