2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Clear brick red body with a short white head. Pleasantly malty aroma that gets close to the character seen in a lot of marzen and amber lager: cookie batter, toasted nuts, breads, toffee, etc., with some apple esters and minimal hop aroma. Some kool-aid powder and cosmetics and maraschino cherry flavoring show up as it opens. Thin body and fizzy with semi-sweet silty allspice and red apple candy flavor. Chalk, vitamins and calcium carbonate and candied cinnamon red hots and wax / crayons. Big Red Soda.

Bottle @ home picked up at Wilbur’s Foco. Pours a clear, deep red orange appearance with a light brown head. Sweet caramel malty, a bit nutty, little roasted, grassy, herbal aroma. Pretty smooth, slightly sweet toasted malty but fairly dry flavor. Light caramel, chewy herbal notes throughout. Better than I was expecting. Pretty good.

Bottle... Poured deep reddish a,ber with a thin head. Toasted malts and fruity notes on the aroma. Malty and fruity. Caramel and toasted malts were dominant. Some fruity tones with nuts and oats too. Sugars in the finish. Nice, medium mouthfeel.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sweet, bread crust, and apple-ish fruit aroma. Sweet malt, with subtle toasted malt flavor. Similar fruity flavor. Not bad--but seems pretty fruity, and not that malty.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at the Brew pub. Strong aromas and flavors of bread crust and toast. Semi sweet finish, Nothing overwhelming, and almost a touch cloying.

Growler from the brewery in Hood River. Light golden brown pour, good sized slick of a white head. Nice strong aroma of bread, roast, nuts - very inviting. Taste - very solid as well. Tons of nutty flavour balanced by lively carbonation and hops over a light body. Nice roast/nutty/sweet linger as well. One of the best marzens I’ve had.
