Impression: This is a beer that could have disappointed. I’d wanted to go for a couple years and had been there a few weeks earlier by car only to be told there were special COVID-19 hours and though I was there at their regular opening times, I was still an hour before the new ones. This time I’d made sure they were going to be open since I was on foot! It came out looking like a classic Märzen with a rich amber hue and massive off-white head. The nose was of toasted malt and the rich palate was malty but nonetheless on the dry side. While not as lush as some Märzens, it had a lovely burnt tinge to it and it was super drinkable at 5.6%.

Next beer or back to the beer list.
