This hardly resembles a marzen and isn’t really something I would come back to. It’s gold, it’s much more bitter than it should be, very grassy and astringent.

Popped a bottle. Delicious, refreshing, slightly spicy and peppery. A little on the lagery flavor side, but very nice.

Bottle: Not a bad little beer. Very drinkable on a hot summer day, but nothing too special.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Huge white head. Leaves ample lace. Crystal clear. Straw color--perhaps light for the style.
Surprising earthiness to the smell. Also, slightly skunky (despite the brown bottle)--no date on the bottle. Slightly sweet.
Partially dry, but with sweet undertone; is that possible? Round mouthfeel with a neutral amount of carbonation. The flavor has some sour elements that peak at the swallow. The aftertaste has some definitive peppery hop. This is a superior Marzen in many ways.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light yellow from tap. Was severed in a big old mug which suits this beer well. It is light with just a bit of sweetness. Not much more or less make it ejoyable and very drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: FEB 29, 2008 This beer did not meet the level I had hoped from this brewery and while I kind of like it, it does little for me. It is golden with a medium off-white head that lingers a bit before thinning to a ring and wisps. The aroma is grain, grass, and pine. The taste is similar, with some decent body and definite maltiness, plus a strong, persistent, if moderate pine-grassy hop bitterness. It is somewhat enjoyable and does not lack flavour while it has a somewhat intriguing & lively palate, but the bitterness is too piney and a little unpleasantly sharp and tends to overpower the malt too much. The end is very dry and a little too sharp, although I really enjoy the basic character and flavour. I’ll drink it and like it but would prefer others. To me this seemed a lot like a very dry, bitter, stronger pilsner and it is not really what I expected.
