3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Pours a medium, off white, well retained head over a clear, dark amber (SRM 14) body.....nose is moderate toasted malts, cereal, toast, no esters, slight herbal hops.....taste is slightly sweet to start, cereal, toast, soft throughout, no esters, minimal hop bitterness on the finish, balance to the malts.....mouth feel, medium body, medium carbonation, malt softness throughout. This is quite malt forward as befits the style, but the complexity in both aroma and flavor, is on the low side. A re-do of the malt bill would be helpful. BJCP 7/3/14/4/7

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear copper like a new penny, under a thin tight foamy head. Nose is sweet and biscuity with some toast and caramel, with that chewy marzen grain tone...smells like the best marzen ever. Tasty flavor of sweet toasted bicuit, lots of caramel, light malts, sweetness, light bitterness, and a little sweet nuttiness. Best Marzen ever, while still coloring within the lines.
