Draft at Sippin by the River ’05. Lots of brewers sporting their fest beers. Sierra with an honest example of the style. Great malt, easy on the hops, clean fermentation.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: The aroma is very light and consists of light caramel, faint earthiness, and nuts. It pours a transparent dark amber/copper with a two finger creamy beige head that slowly fades to a thick film. Each sip leaves a nice soapy ring of lacing. The flavor starts with light-moderate caramel with a hint of fruit. The finish has light-moderate toasted nuts with some earthy hoppiness. It’s light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation and a somewhat soft mouthfeel.

medium clear amber, 1 finger of tan/off white head. Nose is caramel. Bittersweet. Middle is dark roasted malt mixed with molasses, oozed over dark bread. Yum. Finishes slightly drier. Nice.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Brown amber clear. Thick head and lace.
From Sierra Nevada fall multi pack.
Mildly dry, even palate.
Only a fair pairing with roasted peanuts and salty snacks.
Stands well on it own though.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours reddish amber-brown with a two finger tan head with pretty nice lacing. Aroma is of toasted malts, caramel, floral hops, apples, sweet malts, and some light grassy hops. Taste is about the same as the aroma. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a mostly sweet, medium finish. Overall, a pretty nice, above average Marzen that is both drinkable and complex for the style.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a reddish amber with a medium eggshell colored head. Decent lacing, but the head fades into a film on top of the glass. Aroma of earthy hops, caramel, toffee and caramel notes. Flavor is rich, caramel, chocolate, and nutty flavors. Full bodied, average carbonation. This is pretty nice.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Average Marzen. Wish it was darker in color. Has a nice spice, malt, hop balance. More bitterness than smooth malts. Want more malt and creaminess.

Solid marzen. Dark pour with decent head. Tastes great, touch of hops for a malt forward brew, typical SN quality. In the 2014 fall mix pack.
