3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy dark amber with a nice 1/4’’ head and full lace. Taste is sweet caramel malt with a nice natural bittering. Not a lot going on, but well-balanced and easy to drink. A keeper.

Orange-ish amber, off-white head. Nose is malts, caramel, bread and grass. Taste has lots of caramel sweetness, some bready notes and a slight sweetness. Some hoppiness in the finish.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a beautiful reddish tint with a typical lager head that dissipates about as expected. Aroma is of funky cheese with a bit of malty sweetness on the end. Taste is of malts, can’t pick out specific notes of the malt though, might need to try again. However, a very good beer, pleasant taste and mouthfeel. Not a bad beer at all

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle:   Cloudy, orangish caramel, small to moderate off-white head, sparce lacing.   Semi-sweet malty
nose, pale breadiness, touch of nuts.   Pale maltiness on the tongue, also soft breadiness.   Clean, a bit
heavier than many other German examples.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finishes quick, not as flavorful
as it was up front.   Perhaps its not heavier than other German examples.   All up front, but nothing in the
back.   Tiz clean tho.   Somewhat of a snoozer...

Just about clear orange amber pour thin off white head and light lacing .... aroma of burnt and toasted caramel malts .... taste is sweet and of burnt and toasted caramel malts little sweet fruityness with a dry and malty finish a very simple marzen with a little bready element in the body ... a simple easy drinking brew

On tap at CK for the gravity keg event. Gorgeous walnut colored pour with a stunning head. Aroma holds huge diacetyl with butter, toffee, and caramel. Flavor salvages things somewhat with some more nuttiness and almond. Good combination of creamy and crisp on the palate. Some good and some bad about this one.

Hazy orange amber with a great white head. Pure popcorn butter- burnt popcorn butter. Gross. Medium body with medium effervescence and a creamy slippery finish. Ugh.

Bottle (flip top like on the pic) courtesy of ogivlado (thanks!)
Poured a lovely copper-brown body with a big slightly off white head. Light soft nose, a bit grainy and chocolatey. Light grainy taste, again weak notes of chocolate, maybe caramel too. This is a grainy MF (and I don’t mean mouthfeel here), very nice in its own way but sorely missing hops in my opinion.
