Bottle. Pours caramel colored with a white head that lingers. Typical Oktoberfest style beer. One of the best, if not THE best, examples of the style.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft: Poured an amber to brown color with a large tan head, Aroma is sweet malt and grain with light hops. Taste was very refreshing with nice maltiness and yet had just enough grain and hops to give it depth. By far my favorite example of this style.

Been on the Marzen train for a bit now. So good when they are well done. This one is top notch. Deep golden pour with a frothy white head. Aroma was full of caramel malts and earthy hops. Super clean nose. Flavors were grainy, earthy malts, bits of caramel and toffee. Light carbonation, slick mouthfeel. This is damn near perfect for the style. This one will keep me on the train for tad longer.

Draft at Henry’s. Pours clear golden with a medium sized white head. The aroma has roasted malt, caramel, a bit of spicy hop presence. The taste has a pretty biscuit and taste presence but is well balanced and quaffable.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Birch Hill Tavern, poured into a tulip: Pours deep amber with a foamy white head. Aroma of caramel, dry leaves, and nuts. Taste is slightly sweet, light floral notes, heavy caramel, and a little hop bitterness on the back end. Not a complete malt bomb like most marzens, but has all of the characteristic flavors, and lots of them. This is as good as it gets for a Marzenbeir, delicious.
