2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Amber in color with a thin head. Had a very malty presence but felt like it was a lighter beer. Not as malty and with flavor as I would expect Very light in the hops. Not bad but hard to say it was a Marzen.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the GCBF. Deep copper colour with a thick and white head. Great aroma made me do a double take. Smelled it again. Bliss. Taste was all I could want from a Marzen. I wish I brewed this beer. Malt profile had several distinct flavours rolling around my tongue, and hopping was nice, not overwhelming. A great example of the style, and for me, best of show at GCBF 2005.
