4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Situation: Friday before Thanksgiving week...perfect time for a final look at a Fest!
Glassware: Ayinger willibecker...
Appearance: light amber, orange-brownn body that colors the season well; off-white head that leaves tracings et remains whole...
Aroma: piercing malts and spices that punch with honey and candied sugars--a rather bold presence....
Palate: rounded, slightly carbonic presence with a zesty finish; enjoyable as a stand-alone or with pub fare...
Taste: malt profile is clear, crisp and round while delivering an aftertaste worth revisiting; nuanced enough not to be monolithic in maltiness...
Overall: sugars assert themselves in a way that mkes me want to seek out leftover candy corn! A solid/just short of exceptional offering in the fall sampler....

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

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

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a beautiful harvest amber color with a decent head which dissipates quickly. Aroma is pleasant, lots of malty sweetness, some bread and caramel and maybe cereal as well. Taste isn’t huge but is very to the style, notes of caramel, malt, and bread. Good beer, one of my first favorites from all those years ago
