Nice full malt aroma. Caramel. Clear deep orange with sustained, but small, head. Full chewy mouthfeel. Nice, but could be more interesting. Bitter spike on back palate lingers a little too long and makes it a little disjointed.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap. Pours with a lightly hazed orange body with a lasting off-white head that leaves good lace. Aromas are grainy, lightly citrus (lemon), lightly herbal hops. No real melanoidin character. A bit hop driven, light bready notes from the malt. Flavors are malty, a bit of caramel and sticky malt notes. I wish it was a bit more vibrant, lively and crisp in character (water chemistry changes maybe?), Medium to lively bubbles, oddly heavy/fuller mouthfeel.

Tap @ the Dray... Pored rusty red with a thin head. Clean lager yeast that lent towards, minerally, woodsy, incense characters. Low bitterness.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Craft. Pours turbid deep copper with 1-finger frothy off-white head. Nose is caramel malt, resiny hops. Tastes rich, caramel malty at the forefront, with hops, mild tannins and brown sugary notes, and more late caramel maltiness that makes this one come off like a vienna lager mixed with a marzen.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep amber pour with minimal head. Aroma of sweet malt, brown sugar and a hint of spicy hop. Flavor is similar, but a bit dull. Nothing to see here.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
GABF 2010. Pours a deep woody copper with a thin lasting white head. Aroma is nutty, biscuit, doughy pils malt with vienna, bread, grassy leafy hops with slight solvent. Flavor is slight earth, leather, cereal malts, bread, toast, nuts, a touch gritty with some slight funk and grassy green floral hops. Ok.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Capone’s.
Pours a medium brown with some rusty int. Nice off white head and moderate lacing. Smell is a bit plain with some doughy malts and hints of herbal hops. Taste is better as the malt becomes pronounced and picks up some slight caramel flavors and lots of bread. Hops are of the earthy, herbal variety. Mouthfeel is nice--light to medium body with good carbonation. Good drinkability and one of the better Marzens I’ve had, which seems to be happening more lately.
Serving type: on-tap
