From a bottle. Solid, if a little boring. Some spicy quality, but not very round or complex.

On draft hazzy darkish bronze color. Smell of wheat sweetness. Nice medium malty boddy. Suprised by the tangy hop finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a dark copper color with a frothy off-white head. Biscuit aroma with some spices. Toasted malt flavor balanced with a soft, hoppy finish. Dry texture and well carbonated. Definitely drinkable but closer to an ESB than a Marzen IMO.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours red-tinged copper, moderate head. Nose of caramel and chocolate malt, slight hoppiness. Flavor is all bitter up front, that or rancid malt flavors. Tastes spoiled, I can’t imagine a Marzen deliberately tasting like this. Not a fan.
