From notes. Tasted from bomber bottle at Lush West Town. Pours clear amber orange with a thin white head that leaves a very thin collar. The nose is fairly non-deScript with a hint of malts and spices peeking through. The flavors are mostly malt with some sweetness and a hint of bitterness. The body is medium plus with light carbonation and a medium sweet and malty finish.

Draught at Small Bar Fullerton. Hazy dark amber color. Lots of sweet malt in the aroma, some herbal hops, and a light woodiness. Sweet flavor with an oaky touch and a big bready maltiness. Lightly hopped. Full and smooth in the mouth. A bit too sweet overall. some more intense hopping and I can see this going somewhere.

UPDATED: SEP 12, 2014 Bomber. Pours a somewhat murky ruby orange with a small fine white fizzy frothy head. At first I thought I really liked the aroma but now I’m picking up some things I don’t like so much, nice warming nutty caramelly gassy munich malt bit of alcohol, the negative is this acidic like red apple vinegary thing. First taste is hot, boozy, soft dull sweetness, bit of tartness, stale caramel, musty woodiness, quite a bit of bitterness in the finish, chalky astringent, leaves a candied taste lingering but definitely isn’t overly sweet. Medium bodied, soft fine fizzy carbonation, feels fairly flabby and flat. 3.1 [rerate 2014 bottle, really enjoying this now, great marzen!]
