Pours a nice amber color. Gives a nice full flavor of hops and bread and malty sweetness. Smells of light hops and malt.

Bottle. Golden amber with an off white head. Juicy sweet malts, lightly toasted bread, and faint floral hops. Light earthy notes as well, relatively clean malty sweetness. Good stuff.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
2012 bottle to pint glass. A clear orange/amber color with a decent foamy white head and lots of carbonation. The aroma is light malt with even lighter spices, like clove, and a slight bit of hops. The malt sweetness hits first in the taste with the carbonation helping to transition to a nice hops bitterness. Basically smooth and uncomplicated. Medium to full mouthfeel with some astringency and plenty of carbonation.

Sweet bready malts, caramel malts with a faint hint hops in there as well.
Much like the nose this one has quite a strong malt presence with a nice hop character in there to balance it.
Has a very smooth body with a moderate amount of carbonation.

A - Pours a brilliant bronze. 1 finger head off-white head.
S - Lots of rich malt. Toasted toffee. Slightly metallic.
T - Buttery toffee. Toasted marshmallows. Has a green pear tartness. Toasted pecans. Spicy herbal hops adds some bite. Finishes very clean.
M - Medium creamy body.
The rich malty nose was enticing except for the dreaded metallic notes. The metal didn’t show up in the flavor though. This goes great in the fall with some grilled brats and a football game.

i picked this up in a boxed 6 pack. when I was rung up the cashier said "$3.17"...I said are you sure and he said its on clearance. I said whats wrong with it and he replied nothing. Its best by date was 12/31/12 and this is Feb 13. I figured Marzens had been kept over the summer originally so I took it home.Alas ...Not very good.

From notes. Bottle. Sweet soapy caramel. Again, just another crappy example of a Marzen.

Pours a light copper color with about one finger of head that disappears quickly. Aroma is malt, spice, honey and clove. Taste is mostly sweet caramel malts, a little bit of hops, honey, and clove.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark amber with nice fluffy two finger head that disappears rather quickly and leaves good lacing. Some malt and sweetness in aroma but not an overwhelming smell. Caramel malt up front in taste followed by some spiciness and a tad bit of hop bitterness at the end that doesn't overstay it's welcome. Moderate mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Very balanced and drinkable. Nice flavor. Would buy again. Bought at SE.
