3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Town Table, Elon. GL’s rendition of this style is slightly less groan-inducing than some I’ve had but it’s hard for me to be fair to marzens since it’s just not where my taste buds generally gravitate. Handsome reddish ruddy pour, well carbonated and lively on the palate. Malts and grain everywhere, of course, but it’s straining towards the kind of hoppy brightness that makes me appreciate Foothills’ take on the style. Not quite there, but better than most.
