2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. The pour was a light clear amber with a huge (3-4 finger) white foamy head that had good retention and fairly good lacing.
The aroma was very light and mild of a toasted biscuit malt, a mild floral hop and a light doughy yeast with a hint of caramel.
The taste had an extremely light sweet malty presence from the start and finished about the same with a nice note of caramel at the end. The flavor was left hanging around for a nice long while after the swallow.
Mouthfeel was surprisingly light in body and watery in texture with a fizzy carbonation.
Overall an Oktoberfest that is super light in body and flavor. Although a tasty brew it could have used a little more of both.

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.

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.
