3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Lightly hazed light amber color with a moderate beige colored head. Nice continual flow of bubbles. Malty/bready aromas with a bit of floral to herbal hops in the background. Some hints of citric zest as well. Sweet to toasted malt flavors. Lots of malt depth which runs through the course from start to finish. Spicy hops in the middle. Finish is also quite spicy. A full flavored lager. 5/12

Tawny gold with creamy white head. Mild grassy aroma. Malty, yeasty flavors with light bitterness. Enjoyable though not complex or unique.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml bottle from Liquor Barn (Fern Valley); shared with Boo. Aroma: Moderate honey lemon sugar cookie; lighter dough and herbal accents. Appearance: Unfiltered caramel gold colour with soft, but constant carbonation holding up a foamy white head that settles into a ring. Flavor: Honeyed, cookie-like notes up front; herbal lemon hops are more present towards the finish, which is more dry than bitter. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: A characterful lager that I’d happily buy more often if it were a bit more affordable ($4.99 for my bottle).

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
500 ml bottle into lager glass, no bottle dating. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy deep golden/amber color with a 1 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lasts. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of cracker, biscuit, bread dough, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance of bready malt and earthy hop notes; with good strength. Taste of big cracker, biscuit, bread dough, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Light-moderate herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of cracker, biscuit, bread dough, pepper, light honey, and herbal/grassy/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Great robustness and balance of bready malt and earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero astringent flavors after the finish. Very clean on lager flavors, with minimal yeast notes present. Light-moderate dryness from bitterness, increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp, and bready/grainy/creamy/sticky balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5.6%. Overall this is an awesome amber Kellerbier style! All around great robustness and balance of bready malt and earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink. Very flavorful and well balanced. Outstanding style example. A really enjoyable offering.

Translucent copper with no head. The aroma is straw and the flavor is grass and straw with a backend sweetness characteristic of lagers.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy/fizzy, white, mostly/fully diminishing. Body is dark yellow to light amber. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers), with light notes of honey and DMS. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation.
Similar to other Mahr’s lagers; sweet and rather flabby with a fast-dying head and not all that much going on in the nose.

Orange hue, off white head. Nose is malt, subtle hops. Middle is some caramel, medium mouth feel, solid malt. Finish is malt in a friendly arm wrestle with a subtle hop kiss.

Mastodon rocks and all but I’m pretty sure that’s a goat. But the beer! Deep amber, slightly hazy with two fingers of foam. Nice hop/malt balance and tasty enough.
