2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Opaque amber color with a thin head.
Getting some wet hay and grapefruit smell.
Moderately malty first, then some bitterness to round it out. Simple, but hits the notes for the style. Has an interesting bitter/pine aftertaste.
Medium body with moderate carbonation, though it has a fizziness to it like seltzer water.
Fairly average beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle... Pours clear and amber with flashes of copper and a small, creamy, white head. The aroma is an eclectic assortment of maltiness, toastiness, nuttiness and fruitiness Ė fruitcake drizzled with warm liquid toffee. Full-bodied with modest carbonation. The flavor is fairly rich and malty, but not sweet - excellent balance. In fact, this actually trends slightly bitter in the finish. Whatís not to like? Bottle courtesy of BVery!

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a copper gold color. Two finger head, okay lacing. Itís not clear, itís a little cloudy, and a little sediment floating around in there.
Aroma is amazing. Itís quite malty, and a little hoppy. Quite bready. It is quite sweet smelling. It smells like a Caramello bar. Such a high caramel aroma, I want to take a bath in it..
With a nose like that you would expect the taste to follow suit. But not so fast. Iím a little disappointed in the taste. Itís very malty in taste, itís also a little hoppy. Itís bready. Itís sweet, but Iím not so much tasting the caramel I was smelling. Iím really tasting the malts. Itís very bready to the taste. Itís a little sweet, but very bready.
Mouthfeel is excellent. Itís easy drinking. Itís sweet, and dry. Thereís barely any bitterness. Itís highly drinkable, and 6.1% ABV, is barely noticeable. Itís medium body at best. Maybe just a tiny bit of bitterness on the finish.
Overall, this is really good. Absolutely try this one if you can find it. I wish that caramel on the nose could make it into the taste. But otherwise, itís still a fine Marzen!

Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle, BVery with the hookup, poured into an English pint glass. Slightly hazy copper with small off-white head. Aroma is light herbal hops, medium body, medium carbonation, and little small lacing. Taste is caramel malt, some slightly oxidized bread, some herbal hops, hints of dark chocolate, and slightly bitter finish. Slightly past its prime.

"Light roast and a pleasant caramel sweetness in the nose. Pretty light all-around, though. Flavor has similar attributes plus a hint of butterscotch and crisp hops in the finish. OK, but nothin special
