Tap @ Chloe’s Bar at Young and Jackson, Melbourne. Pours clear deep red amber with a huge creamy off white head leaving plenty of lace. Aroma is metallic, fruity, slightly malty and hoppy. Flavor is well malty, toasted, a bit caramel, fruity and bitter. Finishes malty and bitter.

330ml bottle. One of the better marzens I have had. Deep red hue, bordering on copper, with a good sized creamy head. Musk lollies in the aroma while the flavour has some caramel and a bit of butterscotch in it. Good texture in the mouth with a bitter sweetness on the palate.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly reddish brown with small light tan coloured head. Falls away very quickly. Initial aromas are dominated by yeast, but this is soon replaced by nutty malt and dark fruits. Nice. Flavours are very sweet with lots of vegemite like malt coming through. Carbonation is a little excessive. Thin to medium mouthfeel.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours light copper wtih a quickly fading head.
Nose shows lovely nutty malt in abundance! Very potent! Not much else though...
Nutty malt continues as a flavours alongside a little caramel. Pretty light on after that though. Need more malt, the nutty malt alone gets a bit boring.
Soft carbonation could be higher.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Almost still clear amber beneath a cm of off-white head. Aroma is toffee and grass. Taste is rich caramel, some nuts with just a hint of grass struggling at the end that limits the sweetness. Pretty good in style that rarely appeals to me.

Tap. Very enjoyable beer. Aromas of cola, liquorice, and caramel. Taste is sweet, but has some bitterness in the background; good length. Palate is velvety, and medium-bodied. Brown colour, with a thin white head that disappears.

...on tap at the brewery. Well, I have to say that it is very malty, which hides the alcohol well. Nice deep amber color, but of course with the signature "no head" of all thier beers, oh well. Seems to be lacking some body for that true "Marzen" experience, but hey, it’s brewed in Australia. Finishes dry and malty. Decent, but I don’t have it often, not enough complexity or flavor.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
High malty profile, little hop presence and very smooth and crisp on the palate. Easy to drink. Worth a try.
