Can. Light lactic caramel malt aroma. Hazy amber with large head. Lightly sweet caramel malt flavor with a light lactic finish. Not bad - would have liked a stronger malt presence.

I really liked this marzen. Good rich mouthfeel. Just enough malty sweetness to make it a easy drinking fall beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the gastropub. Mildly hazy orange amber color. Thin off-white head. Some lace. Very interesting flavor, hint of orange to the toasty malts. Little caramel, light spicy hop. Sort of a zesty / sweet taste, light tart. Smooth, lighter carbonation, good soft dry texture. I’m impressed, much better than expected - unusual for a festbier, but I’m liking it

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Copper to brown color with excellent clarity. Aroma is much more floral and less malty than I expect from the style, and palate is much lighter as well. Prefer a heavier malt presence from this style, although certainly not a bad beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can. Sour malt aroma. Hazy amber with a small ivory head. Sour/lactic malt flavor with some light bitterness. Light body, lively spritzy carbonation. Not like any marzen I’ve ever tried, but not bad.
