This one was good - a good malty marzen that was a bit light on flavor, but still carried enough malt taste that it went great with my meal.

Sampled on draft at the Short Pump location. Poured medium towards dark amber, nice white head. Aroma focused on caramel malts. Flavor matched, caramel and a bit toasty, a touch sweeter than expected. Hint of teutonic floral hops, but faint. Not bad, wish it had been drier.

12FL OZ ($ ???) had this with my meal, was pretty good but I did switch to the IPA when it was done. Good beer but not very close to the real deal.
