12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass. The aroma is earthy and malty with roasted nuts, some peanut butter, and bread toast. It pours a clear, rich caramel hue with a white, sudsy head that has a mild soapy retention and lace. The taste is a medium bittersweet, a bit more sweet than bitter.It’s slick with a zippy carbonation and a medium body that’s dominant flavor is nuts with a backing note of cooked malt. The finish has a citrus zest to it that turns malty and nutty. It’s aftertaste is light and mellow with flavors of bread, nuts, earth and a note of slightly burnt molasses.

Rusty copper pour. Nose of deep nutty toasted malt, mild orange, and faint herbal hops. Flavor is toasted and caramel malt with toasted nut, orange, and mild diacetyl. Very fall like and definitely on the toasty end of the spectrum.

Pours a slightly hazy light copper with a creamy white head and decent lacing. Aroma of toasted malt and caramel. Taste is toasted malt and biscuit with some caramel. Finishes with some malt flavor. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Straightforward and decent octoberfest but nothing special.

this one is very well put together. Definitely on the sweeter side which I look for out of a good Marzen.
