Central City Brewers + Distillers / Kichesippi Beer Co. Across the Nation Collaboration: 191 Märzen Oktoberfest / Märzen at 5.4% ABV | 25[?] IBU (C$2.47 at NLC Stavanger, 355 ml, packaged on 5-Apr-2018, acquired 13-Jul-2018, reviewed 25-Jul-2018)

Appearance: clear deep gold with one finger of loose white head diminishing gradually to a thin skim, spotty lacing. (3/5) Aroma: toasted bready malt. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, off-dry medium bitter finish. (3/5)

Not my favourite style, but a by-the-numbers analysis says this is a middle of the road interpretation. Aroma and flavour aren’t too badly out-of-spec, but the appearance is somewhat too light, and the body is lacking the slight creaminess that the benchmark calls for. Pretty pedestrian stuff. (13/20)
