3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear brilliant amber/copper with very little white head. Aroma of toffee with a slight biscuity caramel sweetness and a touch of mineral water. Kinda smells like a märzen, actually. Taste was the same, some mineral water, toffee, spicy saaz hops, and a biscuity malty undertone, with a kiss of caramel. Very British, but refined and spicy (saaz).
On tap at Denver Beer poured a clear amber with a small lasting amber head. Aromas of carmel, earthiness and woody hopsa. Palate was medium bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of carmel, earthiness and woody hops with a crisp dry bitter lingering earthy finish.
