Light copper color with minimal head. Mildly nutty aroma backed up with bread dough and caramel. Heavier bodied than their lager, which it obviously should be. Not bad.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
DATE TASTED: September 7, 2014... GLASSWARE: Saranac willibecker...OCCASION: PSU-Akron--too close for comfort... APPEARANCE: beautiful copper brown body; teeming with miniature bubbles; creamy off-white head--looks great before it label... AROMA: lush, creamy malts--hazelnut, fresh bread and sweet mats make for a welcome invitation... PALATE: medium-bodied and meaningful, substantial as it vacates the mouth; properly scaled with a nicely timed aftertaste...TASTE: intense caramel ad sweet malts overwhelm with flavor; hops are subtle; as fall as it gets!...OVERALL: true to form, Lancaster delivers on a sweet, crisp football pairing--as per the style, reasonably big and malty but sessionable...alcohol is balanced and patient...distinguishable from other marzens? not so sure...

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A beautifully bright clear copper colored beer with a big white head when poured vigorously. Fades vigorously too, to just a thin wispy veil.
Very low carbonation.
I can pick up hop presence but of no distinct flavor and sweet malt pulling up the rear.
Nice malt flavor, sweet tasting from Vienna and Munich malts. Barely any hops to speak of, but it isn’t suppost to be a big player.
Smooth and clean, a nice lager style.
Myself, I think it could use a bit more carbo’s and be a little more aggressive in the hop area.
Drink well my friends
