COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This seasonal ale is our interpretation of the classic German Marzen style. It features Carolina harvested and malted artisan barley. Magnum and Palisade highlight a creative hop blend. The result is a clear amber color and a hearty flavor that salutes the old world taste of the season.

DiarmaidBHK (3386) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 21, 2013
Draft at Thirsty Monk South. Pours brownish with a white head. Leaves trace lacing in the glass. Not much in the nose. A slight caramel malt note on the tongue. Finishes clean. Kind of boring even given the style.

nearbeer (3677) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 14, 2013
12 oz. Clear amber with a lasting spit of cream and bubbles. Nose is semi-scorched earthy grain and popcorn with maybe a hint of cookie. Taste is nearly over-roasted grain, pithy dried grass, earthy toffee, biscuit, and touches of tart apple and cardboard. Near-medium body is slightly more to the dry side than the typical Marzen/fest bier and has smooth, average carbonation. This is a strange beer. The aroma and initial taste have some off-putting burnt popcorn notes that fade into a pretty nice flavor. The lingering finish is actually really nice and makes me want to sip more, but then there’s the scorched grain again...

Bottle. Amber color. Tan head. Clearish. Meh. Would be my first impression. Funky taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

emacgee (4010) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - OCT 11, 2013
Pours a soft autumn leaf amber with one finger of dirty white head. Nose is malty with some grainy notes and herbal hop character. Earthy malt. Flavor leans grainy/toasty at the front with a touch of sweetness. There is a persistent bitterness in the flavor that I cannot account for and does not benefit the beer. The mouthfeel needs some work too. Feels like it bottoms out at the end and has a slightly watery character with a grainy bitterness.

Drake (8503) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - SEP 11, 2013
Draft at the brewery. Pours a hazy amber color with a thin frothy head. Good head retention. Aroma of caramel malts and floral, earthy hops. The taste is toasted caramel malts, bitter hops, stone fruits. Medium bodied.

Suttree (5132) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 7, 2012
Sampled at 2012 Knoxville Brewer’s Jam. Copper, loose white head. Smells like caramel and a little bit of cinnamon. Taste also has caramel and cinnamon, with a dryish finish.
