look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Serving: On tap, shaker pint
Served: 11 April 2014

Appearance: Brownish red with a cream colored white head. Head seemed pretty intense, but the bartender poured it off the beer when he was pouring it. Left some lacing.

Smell: Soft assertion of chewy caramel.

Taste: Some caramel maltiness with a slightly bitter finish. No hop presence other than the hint of bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Light with lively carbonation. A very refreshing brew.

Overall: An unimposing beer than is sure to be a crowd pleaser. Tastes like a toned-back Maerzen, which is itself not an imposing style. I would have liked to see a fuller assertion of the malts, with slightly more caramel/molasses notes. Not a bad beer, but probably not one I would buy for personal consumption at home.
