3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours with a fairly thick body and a medium, slightly tan head. Aroma is fantastic, a very rich Octoberfest aroma that is malty and with notes of caramel. As with all duck-rabbit offerings, has a very rich taste. Not the very best of marzen I’ve ever had but very solid and a great example of the style.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
EBD 11/15. Clear amber pour. Normal head volume, lacing and retention.
Typical marzen nose of bready malt - caramel and biscuit. Underneath is a light fruity ester - apple or apricot.
Light medium body that is quite smooth in texture. Slightly below normal carbonation with a hint of effervescence in the middle and a noticeable amount in the finish.
The flavor profile is quite outstanding. It begins with a rich wave of malt - toasted biscuit and caramel. Sweetness is perfectly balanced and never becomes cloying. The middle has a very subtle bitterness and an equally subtle noble hop earthy flavor. As the finish approaches, the fruit notes are evident as it becomes more grainy with a subtle nut aspect. The finish is a slow fade of slightly sweet noble hop flavor.

On tap (TCT) at the 2015 Albino Skunk Music Festival.
As might be expected from the"dark beer specialist", this looks darker and has a darker roasted malt flavor than usual for style.
Otherwise, and overall, this is on style. This includes the aroma which features caramel(?) malts and hops in about equal measure.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. Clear copper color with a small white head that lasts. Big caramel aroma, sticky syrup from Aunt Jemima, nuts. Slightly sweet start to the flavor, medium bitterness. A little thick on the feel as DR tends to be, with average carbonation. Above average for the style. Märzens, amirite!

9/23/15. 12oz bottle from a sixer, Five Points. Amber pour with a nice khaki head, good lacing. Nice aroma, lightly malty, hints at caramel, seltzer water, touch of acidity and nuttiness. Good flavor, subtle, nice maltiness, caramel, toasted bread, light nutty aspect, a hint of acidity, doughy. Tasty stuff!

Great Americanized version. Soft and sweet malt upfront carries through the hole beer. Slight hops to just balance at the end and lower carbonated to allow malt to shine. Slight caramel, nutty, roasted sweetness hold this deep colored copper brew. Very good for the season.

The Duck-Rabbit Märzen is the lightest of their beers. The specialize in darker beers but this in isnt bad. It is more subtle and not a bad choice.
