Clear amber pour with minimal white skim. Aroma is bready malt, as is the flavor with a light sweentess. Very smooth, and quite a nice example of the style. Not my favorite, but it’s up there.

500ml Swing top bottle poured into a Strassburg glass. Use by March 2016.
This beer reminded me that how a beer tastes can be greatly influenced by what you are eating. This beer was sweet caramel malty goodness when drunk whilst eating a lightly salty rosti. When drunk on it’s own, not nearly as sweet and had a bittersweet aftertaste. Went back to eating rosti in between mouthfuls of marzen and fantastic tasting beer again. So enjoy, but enjoy more with pretzels or crisps etc...
