3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Konrad Eso Marzen has a thick, creamy, cream-colored head, a semi-clear, amber, bubbly appearance, and fairly heavy lacing left behind. The aroma is of sweet, bready, crusty, malt, and the flavor is of all that with a zingy, spicy, yet mellow, hop bitterness rounding it out. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Konrad Eso Marzen finishes crisp and highly refreshing. RJT

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance: clear coppery amber, with half a finger of creamy light tan head. Aroma: light nuts, toasted brown bread, light caramel, and a surprising dose of stone fruit. Taste: as the aroma indicated. Finish: toasty and crisp, with a light grassy hop note. Notes: First exposure to the style, and I must say I’m a fan. Really enjoyable. Draft at Birch and Barley.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Churchkey - Washington, DC. Quiet toast points, wet sand, and vague sugar aroma. The toasted sugars start out nicely strong and as a counterpoint to the two Czech-style pilsners I just sampled, but fades into the background pretty quickly, to produce a generic, brown sugar and heavy mineral feel. Clean, dry, plain, but uneventful. Also, I think the filtration, which it appears to have undergone, really detracts.
