Pours a hazy orange-yellow with a foamy head that reduces to a film. Smells a bit noble, grassy and Munich-y. Very rich malt flavor with a nice touch of bittering from the hops. Honey comes out as the beer warms up. I love these simple styles They're very easy to appreciate when done correctly. and this is a good example. I don't know how limited this is, but it's definitely worth trying you Germanophiles.

Poured into a tulip glass, it billows up with a voluminous head of white foam that retains some good coverage for the rest of the glass. Spotty sudsy lacing. Intentionally cloudy, it says unfiltered on the label, glowing sunset orange color.

Clean, floral, grassy aroma, simple and true to style.

Bready and crisp, simple and seamless. Medium bodied with a light crisp bitterness that dries out quickly in the finish. Fresh floral hop notes that are somewhat subdued, but complement the dry crackery malts nicely. Pricey for what it is, but worth a try from this quality brewery.

Poured on tap into a becher glass at Churchkey DC.

A real supper creamy one finger head presented, nice and solid and ultrafine. Deep uniform orange amber and apricot colored body, with some lemon lighter hues along the sides. Beer has a little bit of fine carbonation, and laces with nitro like sheets and rings all along the glass. A mighty fine looking brew.

The nose though disappoints in comparison. Very closed and subtle dough malt body slightly, but a bit hard to detect.

Palate comes with a real nice chewy body. Mid palate fills with soft baked bread, and some sweet bakery yeast like flavors. Creamy and dense body, which coats everywhere in the palate. Subtle flavors that hit nicely.

A good solid keller that just seems to be fairly basic and enjoyable. Real easy drinking to match.

Poured into a Ayinger pint glass. Pours a medium golden amber with a half finger white head with good retention and slippery lacing. Aroma of bready and biscuit malt, noble hops with an interesting light dried herb component. Flavor is nicely balanced biscuit malt and light dry grassy and woody hops typical of German lagers. Light hop bitterness in the finish. Medium bodied. A nicely made classic, mellow helles lager.

A: The beer is hazy pale yellowish amber in color and has a moderate to high amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that quickly died down but consistently left a thin head covering the surface.
S: Light to moderate aromas of bread and toast malts are present in the nose along with some hints of fruity yeast.
T: The overall taste is rather malty and has flavors of bread and toast and faint hints of sweetness; these malty flavors transition to notes of spicy hops, apples and a light amount of bitterness towards the finish.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer doesn't stand out compared to Munich Helles Lagers, but the unfiltered nature and complexity in the taste make it seem more reminiscent of a Keller Bier or a Zwickel Bier.

A- Poured into a goblet with a hazy orange amber body. Silky white head forms to about a finger and has decent retention. Small ring leaves some small patches of lace.

S- Hard to pick much up for me. I basically get reserved German yeast, raisin and some sweet biscuit caramel malts.

T- Pretty laid back for such a gargantuan creature the Mastodon is. Yeast lends a profile of spices, raisin dark fruits and very slight clove banana ester. Some nutty, caramel and almost rye spice malts. Spicy and herbal hops balance it out.

MF- A lighter overall consistency with high end foamy carbonation. Fair amount of bitterness in the finish.

Easy going but in a good way.

Not a huge fan of the band, they are decent lots of fanboys and haters just with something like DTP would have taken thier place in the grand scheme of things, but love Mahr's. The label is cool. 500ml bottle.

It pours a nice hazy amberish orange with a nice off-white head.

The smell is nicely malty. Rich caramel and bread notes, a subtle bit of noble hops. There is an almost rum-like aroma which is nice.

The flavor is malty and fruity. Decently fresh. A zippy kellerbier. Very fuckin nice.

Impressive thick, lumpy, near-white head. The liquid is golden with a mild chill haze. Only negative is the limited lace.

Grainy, raw barley aroma--similar a freshly opened bag of pale malt.

Slightly sweet, this is a malty pale brew. It has a hop spice in the swallow and the short aftertaste. The malty flavor is dominate, but there is no grainy flavor. The body is like skim milk. The carbonation is low. The total effect makes this beer seem to have dried fruit.

A: Poured from a bottle to a pilsner glass. Had a light brown color and a hazy texture. There was a big, creamy fairly long-lasting head. Good lacing.

S: As you'd expect with a German beer, this one had a very malty smell to it.

T: Like the nose, the taste was dominated by malt, but it did have light amounts of grain and hops. Not a bad flavor, but so very predictable and obvious.

M: A good amount of carbonation with a crisp, clean finish. Medium-bodied.

O: This is a well made beer, but as I said it's a predictable one. drinkable, but not much separates it from the pack.
