Clear orange amber colored pour. Medium off-white head. Leaves some nice lace. Medium-plus body. Clean mild aroma. Crisp carbonation. Toasty, caramel malts in the taste. Moderate bitter, light sweet. Was solid. oobawa (1748) - Tennessee, USA - SEP 7, 2017
Perfectly acceptable marzen, hitting all the right notes--caramel, toffee, nuts and mild lager esters--without doing anything too remarkable with them. Noble hops add a crisp, floral bitterness to the finish, and the fade grows bready and dry. Pretty orange pour with a beige cap and slight lacing. Subdued nose gives up modest hints of caramel and yeast. Spot-on creamy yet bubbly festbier texture. Not a classic, but drinkable. Bacchus66 (952) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 24, 2017

This pores a hazy deep copper copper with a medium mocha head. It has a very swee aroma and a taste to match. The body is light to medium with a slight creamy texture. arn8897 (448) - Trenton, Ohio, USA - NOV 17, 2016
Pours amber with a white head. Nutty Aroma with some sweet herbal undertones. Taste the same with a little hop bite. To even everything out. Light palate with no lacing in the glass.

Pint on draft at Za’s Pizza Pub. Aroma: Has a pretty full spiced breadiness about it; hop character is freshly herbal and tends towards lemon. Appearance: Transparent copper body with soft carbonation holding up a sticky tan head that settles into a skin. Flavor: Slightly spiced bread up front that is quickly met by a growing herbal hop presence and a bit of lemon; the finish is mostly dry and lightly bitter. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: A well constructed example of the style that features a fresher-feeling hop presence than many others; maybe I just happened upon a fresh keg.
