Enjoyed several cans fresh from the brewery. Comes across as a typical seasonal marzen with no unusually strong or weak points. Very drinkable for summer or fall. Purchased a 4-pack based on my initial tasting,

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
16 oz. can. Dimpled mug shows a cloudy amber color with spotty lace/ Nose is dough and large amounts of sweet malts. Flavor is all sweet, bready malts. A very weak bittering unit is there when it’s real warm but you can not taste it even when it’s just chilled. The body is thin. It’s relatively easy to drink because it does not have much going on. Not bad, just real simple.
