draft at the restaurant. aroma - it was a bar; how do I know. taste was a little funky and odd; malty up front with the back end being slightly hopped but syrupy sweet with honey/caramel - odd end; not bad just different.

Appearance is a clear amber. Aroma is a sweet bready malt. Taste is a nice example of a German beer. Overall one of the best from the brewery.

Pours a copper color on tap with thin, off-white, lacy head and light lace left behind. Aroma is sweet, german malts and slight toasted back. Taste is super malty and sweet, leaves a sticky mouth. Meh.

12 oz bottle with a friend. Pours a clear brown-orange with a white head. Nose is toasted malt, caramel, and some mild lager. Flavor is similar with nice toasted malt character and lager yeast. Medium in body for the style and nice overall.

Bottle. Pours clear orangish amber with a beige head that dissipates with nice lacing. Aroma is very caramelly, plus hay/grass notes. Flavor is much the same, with medium sweetness and a grassy finish. Light to medium body. Not bad

Pours a clear amber. Light bready nose, almost shortbread. Strong, tingling carbonation on the tounge. Tastes like they use some Munich malts here. some alcohol in the finish similar to a bock. at 5.8% ABV this is one of the stronger marzens i have had.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 4, 2013 1) Pint between flights@Dulles, 01/09/12. Bright, deep coppery beer under a slim white top. Some Butterkist and herbal nose; squeeze of fig. Buttery in a good way; buttered malt loaf and fig notes, soggy glace cherry sweetness tempered with shrub and grassy hop. Balanced, not overly sweet. Very good.
2) Bottle imported by Cousin Matt. Mentalist. Bread, cherry and fig-hinting aroma. Dull, soggy, pretty non-descript taste with none of the nuances of the draught. Pity. 635310.

Tried as part of a fall beer tasting session with James, the Cunigans, and Jess. This was one of the worst. An unbalanced mess heavy in sweet caramel and honey.

Pours a caramel slight copper color with aroma of sweet raisins mixed with molasses. Taste is creamy with a sweet hint to it. A slight bitter finish after the swallow. Overall a decent beer that is refreshing with a sweet bitter finish.
