Flava and finish is the strong suit. Which is good for drinking a beer. Hint of toasty nutty in aroma but nice and powerful in the Flava. Finishes slightly sweet yet bitter and dry.

pineypower (3129) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - SEP 30, 2012
Tap at Maple Shade. Pours out an attractive orange color with a small off white head. Aroma is of caramel malts, grainy bread, mild honey and some lingering floral hops in the background. Taste is much the same, clean caramel, grains, cereal, grass, bread, some honey and a light lingering bitterness on the finish.

BiddleBrau (1172) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 23, 2012
On tap at Chestnut Hill. Clear, dark amber, no head. Toasted caramel malt nose. Malty sweet with some roastiness. Hops mix with roastiness to provide some bitterness but this is primarily a malt profile.

keepersj12 (3070) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - SEP 23, 2012
A nice version of the style. Malty with bread, caramel, some yeast. The flavor is the same, nicely balanced, and good with the Oktoberfest menu.

Pours a dark amber with a medium tan head...nice lacing. Aroma has some roastiness and nuttiness...bready as billed. Flavor follows suit and has nice earthy notes...faint spice and bitterness in the back end. Mouthfeel is lively and refreshing with a dry bitter/roasty finish.

beerbill (3605) - Laurel, New York, USA - OCT 6, 2010
Growler courtesy of my friend J, filled at the Lancaster, PA location. Pours a clear golden brown with a moderate tan head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left ample spotty lace. Pleasant aroma of malt with just a hint of roast/smokiness to it. The flavor is malt with just a bit of roast, toasted bread, with just a hint of brown sugar sweetness. Mild bitterness at the end finishes this beer off nicely. Medium bodied. I could drink this Märzen all day, very nice.
