bottle. Amber with small head. Pretty straightforward marzen. Not going to blow anyone away with flavor, but solidly average.

Caramel aroma, taste is caramel, toffee, malty, bready, aftertaste is short. Crisp and refreshing for a football game!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance was a dark amber colored body with a white head that fizzles out extremely quick with no lacing.
The smell was malts, grains, and bread, but gives the essence of fall.
The taste had some caramel, malts, and a decently low hop balance finishes really crisp and clean.
The palate was about light/medium bodied with moderate carbonation smooth and refreshing.
Overall, this is good for what it is.

The first time I Tasted it was great, but the second time wasn't. You can smell the sweetness and spices. Dark amber color. An ok beer.

Bottle, pours amber with a small head. Nothing real fancy here for taste, just an average beer.

It pours a light amber orange with a pillowy off white head. Light toasted malt notes in the nose. More toast on the tongue with light floral from the hops. Definitely on the drier side (that’s a plus!). Not heavy or sweet. Solid

Sam Adams is starting to baffle me with the similarities in their beers. Not much flavor here. Pretty much all I want to say.

12 oz bottle. The pour is a dark amber with hints of orange. There is a decent off white head that fades down to a nice film, leaving a minimal lace at best. The aroma is pretty heavy in malt. There are some nice bready characteristics to is and a soft subtle hoppiness to it. The flavor is similar. There is a good caramely maltiness, and it's not overly drawn out. The flavor has a nice lingering slightly bitter aftertaste, and the mouth feel is light, but decent

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Orange-amber in color, clear with a pleasant head and tight bubbled sticky lace.
Aroma features a largely caramel smell. The malt is crisp with creamy milk sugars coming forward. Surprisingly, the alcohol warmth comes through, too.
Very round, rich mouthfeel. The flavor comes late, but strongly. Hop is strictly a balancing act to the full crystal malt flavors. The hop is more present after the swallow, but the aftertaste is still more malt; it’s also long lasting.
