2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2012 Looks murky, tastes like NewCastle (not a good malty), Has a nicer palate than the aroma would indicate, but still disappointing. Very surprisingly, my lowest rated beer as of 09/26/2011
11/12/2012: upped the ratings slightly on this as it’s better than I remember, but not much.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a clear amber color with decent head, but dissipates quickly. No lacing. Aroma is lager yeast, cereal grains, bitter sweetness. Flavor is burned toast, scorched malt, artificial sweetener, yeast. Overall this beer is reminiscent of all Sam Adams beers. Overly malty, yeasty, and artificial. This will be the last one of the brand for me.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
nose: uninspiring but correct i guess...bit of roasted nuts, malts, pound cake
palate: dense and sweet. raisin bread. it’s quite tasty, actually. yeasty. finish is baking spice but rather subdued. the problem with this beer is everything feels done halfway. wallpaper beer

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Poured a nice dark brown. Well balanced sweet/malty flavor. There’s so many marzens out there these days. this is one of the more solid, drinkable ones.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Clean burnt amber with large khaki head. Intermittent lacing. Mild aroma of roasted malt and their corresponding caramel notes. Faint earthy/tea notes. Medium body. Semi-sweet marzen notes. No distinguishing qualities. A fairly safe take on the style. Ok.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
One of my favorite beers. I look forward to its release every year. Poured deep red into a pint glass. Rich caramel notes and taste. Should have a higher rating. My favorite marzen
