3.54/5  rDev -1.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Appearance--dark copper, surprisingly so for a lager.
Smell--good balance of roast malt, with a sharp sourness to balance.
Taste--Nice, richer than expected for a lager with dry finish.
MF--full, crisp at the end.
Overall--Not bad for a lager, but a little heavier than what I'd expect.

Pours an effervescent copper/auburn with a thumb of cream colored head. Stellar head retention & lacing, good looking brew!

S: Breadyness & toastyness, but in modest amounts

T: Biscuitty malt, faint leafy & herbal hops, much toastyness up front. Dryness, herbal hoppyness, pear & apricot notes as this warms. Finishes dry, toasty with leafy hops, & pears

MF: Medium bodied, slightly sharp carbonation, nicely balanced. Carbonation mellows out over time

So easy to drink, a nice Marzen, I would love see this on draft

Pours out to a generous head that lasts and a hazy deep copper color. Aroma is strange, smells of toasted malt and sauerkraut (???). Flavor is toasty, dry for the style and has a nice soft, easy noble hop bitterness to balance it all out...but it has a sour twang that sort of confirms what I detected in the nose. Mouthfeel is light-medium and just about right. in summary this is a beer that hits many of the style points, is drinkable, but I suspect there is a bacterial infection causing the off characteristics.

I will re-review this beer on tap or in a later bottled batch as soon as I have a chance. I bet this bottle is not representative of the product at large.

Stay tuned.

February 15, 2015

12 oz can, nonic pint

A – Medium amber and leaning toward copper, and very clear. An inch-plus of frothy, off-white foam, with medium-low retention.

S – Very malty up front, with biscuit, very light caramel, and a touch of toast. Hops are herbal, a little bit spicy, moderate in strength.

T – Again, very malt forward, biscuit and graham cracker, some grainy sweetness. Hops are mostly herbal, slightly woodsy, medium presence. Pretty clean, maybe a touch of fruitiness but very minor.

M – Moderate to slightly high carbonation, and medium-bodied. Sweet with a touch of biter, juicy all the way through.

O – Really a very solid, flavorful lager, finds a place between the Americanized and traditional versions of Marzen/Oktoberest. A good go-to beer in place of a mass-market lager.

Another $5 six pack! Yeehaw.

Appearance : Very nice off white head, super fluffy, yielding great flecks of lacing on the sides of the pilsner glass. The head stands about 1 finger tall. The body is a burnt orange color, very festive and fall-like. Mostly transparent.

Aroma : Wet earth mixed with dead fall leaves, some slightly burnt malts and toasted grains, and a faint spiced hop clarity. I don't know what these guys do with their hop but it always seems to smell clean and fresh.

Taste : Yeah, it's good...it's just hard to describe. Fairly two dimensional at first, with some earthy amber malts, then a rush of water, some clove, and finally ending with a quick snap of spicy hop and twig. The finish is the best however, it lingers around on a roasted note. Something's sorely lacking here yet I can't point it out.

Mouthfeel : Buzzing carbonation, a creamy feel, light bodied all the way down. Ends watery and faintly crisp.

Overall : I was hoping this one lived up to their Behemoth. Not so. I think I'll skip this sixer next time.

Pours a clear, copper color. 2/3 inch head of an off-tan color. Good retention and good lacing. Smells of pale malt, sweet malt, slight citrus hops, hint of nuts, and a hint of alcohol. Fits the style of a Marzen / Oktoberfest. Mouth feel is sharp and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of sweet malt, hint of yeast, slight pale malt, slight citrus hops, and a hint of alcohol. Overall, decent appearance, aroma, body, and blend.
