The Beer

Golden Export - Skunky taste like a stronger, flat American beer. Bitter, but not seemingly so much the hops, the Export had a malt liquor taste. As one person put it, "the last half of an Old English."
Reviewer's Rating: n/a

Marzen - I must use the word diacetyl, because it did have a butterscotch taste. Called a "full bodied auburn," the Marzen was medium bodied at best. It was less malty than a Bock, but more fruity, with a banana-like aftertaste. It's their best seller.
Reviewer's Rating: n/a

Oktoberfest - Similar body to the Marzen, but spicier with a dryer finish. Golden to copper colored, this seasonal had an overall stronger, more blatant taste.
Reviewer's Rating: n/a

Hefeweizen - This was the only non-lager. A typical dishwater/wheat smell was followed by a strong mouth taste, with that banana flavor coming through again. A pretty straight HW.
Reviewer's Rating: n/a

Dunkel - Hands down, best one. Dark brown in color, malt and cereal in aroma. Slightly sweet and malty with tiny hints of chocolate. A good, smooth dark. Great with steak.
Reviewer's Rating: n/a

Discussion with Mark Loveland

Brewmaster: Mark Loveland; GM: Freddie. They use all German hops.

The Atmosphere

Great architecture in what used to be a bank. Beautiful two-foot-wide pillars and turn of the century ceilings. A nice restaurant and menu are the features of this establishment. I actually ate there twice. The food is worth the trip. The Hanger Steak and Garlic Mash Potatoes was the first visit, and Filet Medallions the second. The Dunkel is perfect with steak. I would revisit for this reason alone.

Afterthoughts

Dunkel's the best. Otherwise, Oktoberfest in season. The Pilsner was three days from completion. Do yourself a favor and eat there, at least.
