3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not quite fall, but just purchased, i can pretend. Pour: nice copper brown, off white copper head. Nose: caramel malts, very malty sweet with a light spicy hop aroma at the end. Taste: to agree with smell sweet light caramel malts, with a light spice hop profile. not a ground breaker, but has a subtle calm taste.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft to taster. Looks good for the style; a transparent light copper with foamy off-white head. Smells and tastes sweet, malty, and doughy with a solid mouthfeel. A solid example of the style.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
DATE TASTED: November 27, 2013... GLASSWARE: Schneider Weisen Edel-weisse pokal... OCCASION: Cavs/Heat Thanksgiving eve treat... APPEARANCE: thick, off-white three-finger head; excellent, almost decorative lacing; smoldering effervescence; cloudy, dense autumnal amber body... AROMA: caramel, toffee and generous pale malts; secondary pine hops balance the experience... PALATE: medium to full-bodied--teeth-chattering; surprisingly active early and late...TASTE: redundant to the aroma, caramel and toffee dominate the flavor; a zesty lemon hop spice intercedes for balance; a nuttiness reminiscent of a brown ale seeps in...complex and befitting of a waning Autumn night--a bit alcoholic late...OVERALL: the second beer I’ve had from Epic provides a similar experience to the first--rich, complex, almost challenging to evaluate or categorize, as the bottle suggests--a Marzen, yes, but much fuller of body and substantial of flavor...

Draft at Dutch’s. Pours a clear golden/amber color with a small off white hea. The aroma and flavor have a clean malty base with mild fruit and spices notes, bready, light toasted, very mild bitterness to the finish. Decent, worth trying once.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sweet malty aroma; a little bread crust and fruitiness. Sweet, biscuit/toast, light caramel flavor. Spicy/herbal hops, and fruity yeast. The sweetness dominates the other malt flavors--but otherwise, good beer. (Release #15)

Bottle, batch #11. Pours a clear deep orange. Very rich, sweet caramel, nutty flavor. There are some fruity undertones. A bit heavier than most traditional Marzens. It’s good but on the verge on being too sweet.
