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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
