3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
Serving type: bottle

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.

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.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a very large sized head of foamy finely sized off-white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a softly carbonated transparent light orange brown colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The mild aroma was of Vienna malt and mild hops. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish with a mellow hoppy aftertaste. The mild flavor contained notes of Vienna malt. A decent one but not one that I would consider buying again.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear copper with with a finger of very rocky, off-white head. Settles quickly with no lacing. Very mild aroma, hay, grain, wheat. Flavor is slightly malty, nutty, caramel up front. Fading into mild, almost fruity tones, alcohol has very subtle presence in finish. Soft carbonation and very light body. Smooth mouthfeel with a mild finish that lingers. Drinkable, light, a decent oktoberfest. Could be bolder/richer. A decent beer.
