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.

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!

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

Pours a dark orange color with a lacy white head. Notes of caramel, sour mash, earth, and bread. Pretty basic but some nice maltiness.

12oz bottle from The Beer Store Wilson. Dark orange-reddish hue, murky clarity with mostly diminishing off-white fizzy head. Virtually no lacing. Sweet fruit aroma. Bland fruity taste up front with the same finish. As it wared there was more malt flavor on the finish. Lively carbonation on the palate.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear orange brown with a fast-fade-to-rim off white head. No lacing. Aroma is sweet bready malts and corn. Taste is sweet caramel and bread malts with noble hop bitterness. Thick, slightly sticky mouthfeel. Pretty representative Marzen-style. Quite decent.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a clear deep copperish-brown with a thin soapy head. No head retention at all and also no lacing. Pretty disappointing.
Aroma is an interesting mixture of caramel, vegetables, and metal. Some apple notes too.
The flavor is a little better but still an odd mixture of what seem to be off-flavors. Caramel and fruit are more pronounced with apples figuring in even more prominently. A touch of tartness with a bit of a chalky finish.
Overall, this beer just seems a bit "off". Not sure if it is a sanitation issue or a yeast issue but there are definitely off-flavors here. Really needs to be cleaned up.
