2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sweet, fruity caramel aroma, hint of cherry. Dark orange color, minor lacing. Sweet taste, almost wine like with mild bitter contrast. Not getting any nutty notes. Sugar heavy amber beer, below the brewer’s usually impeccable standards.

Bottle. Floral apricot, tea-like malt aroma. Hazy amber with a large tan head, decent lacing. Nutty, slightly sweet malt flavor. Light body, moderate carbonation. Both aroma and flavor were a bit on the light side.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle. Another winner from Boulevard. Kind of similar to the pale ale, I think. Little lacing on this one, tan head with deep copper coloration, translucent, almost clear. I agree with the "nutty" taste and sweet finish, great aftertaste, in fact. Top notch for the style.

A nice marzen style ale. The few I have had tasted a little bland from what I expected but may have been due to beer age
