From a 16.9 oz can to a nonic glass. Code on can bottom says 24435.

A-The beer is deep golden in color with just a slight chill haze clouding things up. The head is tall and barely off-white. Retention is good and the foam clings to the glass as I drink.

S-The aroma is a somewhat underwhelming mixture of honey sweetness, cooked carrots, lightly floral hops, and light yeast notes. Kinda muddled.

T-The taste is similar, but with more biscuit and bread crust. Honey sweetness blends with hints of dry grass and floral hop flavors.

M-The body is robust and creamy. The beer drinks easily but fills you up.

O-This is a good looking beer and the can was nice to look at too, but the smell and taste were a little off the mark. Not offensive, just nothing worth writing home about.

Pours a clear medium yellow.
Smell is sweet apple and a bit of citrus.
Taste comes across sweet apple and maybe some pear.

While reviewed on the "1001 Beers To Taste Before You Die", I will review it when I taste again... hopefully this Fall.

Nothing awesome, but a good pint for a European brew. I ended up with it on a sampler platter. Nothing I would go buy, but if I was given a case I would still really enjoy it. Solid pint.

Had this on draft at Laschet's Inn (half litre mug). I thought this was a lovely offering! Clean, crisp, refreshing and slightly, sweet, floral on the finish. Could drink it all day as it's hanging around 5%ABV, too.

Mystery dating on this & no decoder ring handy, bummer

Pours a very effervescent gold with 3 fingers of gorgeous fluffy eggshell colored head. Nice lacing & head retention

S: Pears and a little grassyness

T: Slight breadyness, a little bit of pear & grassiness, plus a touch of cloying apple juice up front. Some herbal & grassy hops, but kind overwhelmed by apple juice sweetness. Finishes too sweet, with a little grassyness

MF: Light body, fairly firm carbonation, skews sweet

Barely drinkable, close to a drain pour, disappointing

From Alcampo. In Bavaria glass. Reading CPPHTP Ch13. Not memorable but drinks well

Draft offering at Wurst in Calgary.
Pours slightly hazy, golden yellow with a tall, foamy head. Foam settles to a thin film on top of the beer, small streaky lace.
Smell is basically all of grain and malt, some wet grass.
Taste is same, grain, malt, and some mild grassy hop flavors.
This beer has a good level of carbonation, crisp mouth feel, easy enough to drink.
Overall, this is a pretty average beer, nothing special, there are better examples of the style.

Disappointing, coming from the heart of beer country. Bland, musty lager, clear golden with thin white head. Aroma is day old bread dough, slightly sour, taste is funky grain, no hops what so ever. Blech!

A - Pours clear straw colored with a hint of amber. One finger of head that quickly dissipates to a light cap and minimal lacing.

S - Sweet bread and apple, possibly a hint of citrus.

T - Starts out sweet with a bit of apple, getting breadier on the swallow. Just a small hint of hops.

M - Light body and carbonation.

O - Not bad for a session beer, but not really following Marzen style. Too light in body and flavor.
