This beer has the aroma of straw/hay with a tiny hint of honey pours a translucent brown and goes down very smooth.

Harris Teeter, DC sixer ($9): Pours an orange color with minimal head action. Aroma of sugar, caramel, and malts. Taste is slightly bitter, but as you keep drinking it the sweetness it really what is most pronounced. Good mouth feel and easily chuggable, but by no means one of the best marzens I’ve had; better ones exist on both sides of the pond.

Tap at C&B Cinci, well they were right with the malty part, unfortunately its a harsh malty taste, i can’t place it, but its the combination of too much crystal i think that’s off putting to me.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Appearance: medium amber with a bit of orange, light tan head quickly fading. Aroma: light toasted brown bread, hint of brown sugar and toffee. Taste: roasty, light nuts, some earthy mellow hops . Finish: a bit light, nearly watery, with some lingering toasty, nutty malt sweetness. Notes:Hmm…was there a recipe change when the name was changed from Marzhon (a far better appellation IMHO)? I’m guessing there was a tweak, because the abv is lower, the palate is lighter, and the overall flavors are just off from what I recall. Pretty disappointing, actually.

Appearance: medium amber with a bit of orange. Aroma: malts, light caramel, maybe some honey. Taste: crispy, slightly sweet malts, hint of hops to balance. NICE. Finish: clean and crisply malty; lingering dry, slightly sweet crackers. Notes: Wow. A really drinkable beer. Right up there for the lagers.

Draft at Cock n Bull. Pours amber orange in color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have doughy, biscuity malt, caramel, some earthy notes and light fruit. Nothing outstanding, just a typical amber.

UPDATED: SEP 16, 2013 On tap @ Tir Na Nog
This beer is absolutely fantastic.
Nice frothy head, smell was sweet and like fresh bread.Excellent brown/caramel color. Very malty and nicely sweet with an almost creamy mouth feel. A++ in my book.
Re-Rate after a 6 pack. Quite a letdown compared to on draft. Tasted like a maltier Yuengling.

12oz bottle, best before December 2012. Thin off-white head, some bubbles on the side of the glass. Head fades to minimal. Clear orange color. Good soft carbonation, pretty refreshing clean finish. Nice toasty malts, good light crisp hops. Lightly sweet taste, light bitter. Really enjoyable marzen. Hits the spot.
