On draft. Aroma of liquid caramel. Flavors of... pumpkin, but not quite sweet that way. Spice? Nutmeg? And lots and lots of caramel? Marvelous.

Everything you would expect from a great "Imperial Oktoberfest" Märzen. I’d add that this is the best one I’ve ever had, if this also wasn’t the only "Imperial Oktoberfest" I’ve ever heard of!
It’s a very spicy brown märzen that’s beautiful from pour to empty glass.
