Beautiful clear dark golden color. Fine tasting marzen, on the lighter side of the style. Karl Strauss in San Diego made a similar beer, though it's an ale, for this year's Christmas Ale(2003). Nice sweet malty flavor with an interesting buttery or butterscotch flavor that I liked.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled: Clear golden coloured. Huge white head. Malts and sweetness in the aroma. Sweet and malty with a vague hopaccent in the flavour. A little boring I think. Has a nice bitterness in the end. Smooth and bland.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Grassy bitterhop notes with a bisquit background.
Orange amber with a lowish creamy head.
Nice broad hop flavors on top of a firm malt body. Hops are fresh and malt is fruity, I do not think this is a beer which ages or travels well. It is nice finally
to taste a well-done german fall/winter seasonal.

Not one of the most inspiring Marzens I have tried more like a fortified pils. Straightforward taste with a pleasant orangey appearance but for my taste it lacks body.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light gold color. Medium head. Aroma is malty. A lighter bodied Octoberfest/Marzen with some pumped up alcohol (6.2%) Malty and somewhat sweet. Mild hops. Mild flavor, with not a lot of complexity. That said, this is a tasty beer. Not very complex, but tasty. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly malty sweet.
