Can from LCBO. Decent Marzen. Deep toasted bread malts: fresh pumpernickel, honey sweetness, a slight hop bitterness. Better than the other Marzen I sampled tonight.

Can from the LCBO. Clear pale amber with a small quickly fading white head. Nose is light toffee and grain with a hint of floral hops. Light sweet caramel with only the slightest bitterness along with an odd mineral tang. Medium light thin mouth with soft carbonation. Just OK.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
473ml can. Pours a small foamy white head that doesn’t stay very long and has a pale golden appearance. Leaves a bit of dirty lacing. Aromas of light citrus, sweet and grainy malts, hints of wheats. Flavours are actually quite fruity, not overly abundant but quite noticeable. Still has that grainy malt taste though, some grassy hops as well. Average carbonation. It’s a pretty refreshing brew.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours clear very pale yellow amber. Short-lived white head. Sweet apple, toasted malt, caramel nose. Lots of carbonation. Mouthfeel is medium/low. Very very sweet. Lots of cereal malts, there is a little earth, and mild medicinal and fruity hops in there... but it is buried under all that sugar. It’s a bit bready, if we’re talking sweet bran muffin. For a style where you should find it appetizing, and a willingness to have several... even one of these is proving difficult.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: SEP 14, 2015 2015/09/13 - Pours a clear orange-gold colour with a thin, fizzy, off white head that quickly vanishes. Aroma is cereal, vegetal notes, slight caramel and a hint of apple. Taste is cereal grain, slight caramel, roast, mild vegetal hops and light apple. Slightly watery and rather metallic. Mouthfeel is thin with average carbonation and a long, drying finish. Ok, nothing special. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can from brewery. Pours clear gold with very little white head. Doesn’t look like much, but there’s plenty of aroma/flavour here. Aroma has spice, noble hops, and caramel; nice. Caramalt and bready taste, with a nice hoppy bitter bite. Slightly metallic. Medium-bodied, smooth mouthfeel. Enjoyable!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This one poured a medium clear yellow colour with a beautiful, creamy, off white head. Scents include fresh bread, over-ripe fruit, vanilla and mild hops. First swig was smooth with a small amount of carbonation but not to the point of being almost flat. Flavours of caramel, butter, raisens and light vanilla are most predominant. Finish is lightly bitter with a thick mouth feel. Light hop and thick malt flavours linger.
