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.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours reddish copper with a head that disappears quickly. Malty aroma is pretty mild; flavours of hay, bread and some herbs. Taste is crisp with solid clean malty flavours featuring most. Only a little herbal notes in the finish. Overall somewhat dry, light to medium bodied, slick palate. Very drinkable, clean German beer - no mistakes but no variance either.
