Nice taste. Good and malty but a little lacking in the aroma. Looks good and would drink again.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma: Toasty, bready malts with caramel glaze. Fairly spicy hop presence; sweet potatoes? Appearance: Dark copper pour with a foamy tan head that settles into a patchy ring, nice; natural looking carbonation. Flavor: Very malty as you’d expect, but almost something here reminiscent of a pumpkin beer. Not bad, but unexpected. Quite spicy, almost like some rye addition (surely not!) but that’s what keeps coming to mind; pumpernickel like. Palate: Medium body, creamy texture, lively carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: Hmm. It’s a tasty beer, but something seems odd to me. Strange.

Good for what it is. Would be easy to drink in a stein, but then again I’ve had better marzens. Tasted this at a Giant and didn’t opt for a growler.
