Pours a dark rich amber with a lovely fluffy white head. Toasty malt aroma; I like the previous rater’s description of "honeysuckle."
This one shines in flavor. Toasty malt, honey-roasted nuts, some nice summer field-grass, just a nice mellow hop twist on the close like a hint of orange peel, a hint of spice. Maybe just a touch too much brown sugar, but still splendidly drinkable, I’m really really impressed. Right on!
Bottle from riversideAK. Thanks Alex! Pours a clear orange amber with a thin white head and lace. Nose of rich malts, honeysuckle, caramelized sugar. Very easy drinker. Light body with lots of flavor. This is one of the better marzens I have ever had. after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - MAR 31, 2008
12-oz. Crystal clear medium goldened amber. Thickish fizzy white head that falls quickly, leaving lots of scattered lace. Nice room-filling wheaty, brown sugar, dry leaves, and wet hay nose. Lightish body, very clean and drinkable. Light carb. Leaves, brown sugar, caramel, nuts, and toast on the mid-palate. Long peppery nutty finish. Great stuff. riversideAK (6265) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAR 28, 2008
Golden amber color with a lasting thin velvet head. A little hazy. Aroma of lighter fruits and sweet biscuit like bready malts. A little floral hops in the finish. The flavor is sweet and bready. Somewhat fruity. A little floral. Very clean finish. A great take on the style. I would drink this anytime.
