4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
A really great version of this style, sorta in the midpoint between the Americanized really sweet versions and the more biscuity German versions I’ve had. Kinda reminds me of honey nut cheerios with less sweetness. Clean on the palate and easy drinking. Really very good stuff, one of the best Marzens I’ve ever tried.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a soft and clean orange-ish amber with one or two fingers of fizzy sandy tan head. Nose has a light caramel sweetness on the edges, works well with the herbal hop note and biscuity/bready grain. Flavor is nice, earthy and lightly toasted grain. A touch of malt sweetness makes its way through. Very soft and mellow/mild with full malt flavors and a clean finish. Very very low bitterness and soft finish. Nice

Pours a clear bronze with escaping bubbles and a fair khaki head that settles to a thick film, leaving some soapy lace. Nose involves toasted malt, noble hop spice, crusty bread dough, and light lemon. Pretty sweet, fairly bitter. Medium bodied, oily, soft carb, finishing toasty and dry. Nice oktoberfest.
