3.75/5  rDev +1.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

First brew I've had from this brewery. Easily managed pour produces plenty of head that is supported by medium carbonation. Lacing is ring like and admirable. Gold color as you'd guess has a slightly unfiltered haze to it.

Pretty light in all departments but it did hold my interest, mainly because I thought the snappy dry hoppy finish was welcomed. Malts are sweet but on the mild side of things. Metal creeps into the aftertaste but is short lived and hardly annoying at all.

Its on the high end of the ABV for a fest beer. Not as malted as most marzen's I've had, this beer just works. I have two other brews from these guys so this needless to say has me excited for whats to come. Above average.

3.06/5  rDev -17.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Presentation: Ubiquitous 500ml [1 Pt 0.9 fl.oz.] Teutonic brown glass bottle from the Fatherland with a silver rimmed colored crown cap which has a green logo set against a white background. The neck and main labels both have a metallic gold appearance and a very colorful heraldic Coat of Arms on them emblazoned with the phrase ‘Seit 1780’.

‘Schönramer Gold’ is listed as a ‘Fest Beer’ on the front and ‘Pale in color, yet strong and very drinkable, brewed for all festive occasions’ on the back label. Clocks in at 6,0% Alc./Vol. with a Best Before 28.07.06. My bottle has the Brewery title formerly stated as ‘Private Landbrauerei Schönram’.

Appearance: A resilient three finger deep white head expands ever upwards to form a nice looking cap. Settles down to a 1” thick covering that has great staying power. Ring type lacing with a light screen of head as I work down this one. Archetypal German lager presentation.

Nose: Grassy aromas with some sweet malts. Light sulfur in the nose and a soft hop presence.

Taste: Malts are softly toasted with a gentle sweetness. Hoppy middle with a grassy tone. Dry but sweet finish. Clean profile yet this has a delicate sticky feel as it warms.

Mouthfeel: A small handful of streamers rise slowly. Middling conditioning is soft on the tongue. Slight hoppy acidity to the sweet malt texture. OK but nothing special.

Drinkability: A clean brew that gulps easy on a warm Sunday afternoon whilst watching the TV but not something I would seek out.

Overall: Just another boring German brew that runs straight down the middle of the AutoBahn and never wavers from the white line. Technically OK, but it lacks heart. So-so.
