Draft. Can’t have a maerzen be an ale. It is a typical less roasty malty amber ale. firstsip (752) - Michigan, USA - JUL 12, 2015
Tap. Dark semi-opaque amber brown. Nice lacing. Mild yeasty nose. Full body. Nicely mild malty taste -- more like a mellow red than an Oktoberfest. Ratman197 (15628) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - APR 28, 2015

12 ounce can into pint glass, canned on 10/28/2014. Pours slightly hazy deep orange/copper color with a 2 finger dense and rocky off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas caramel, toast, toffee, biscuit, brown sugar, light nuttiness, light orange zest, herbal, grass, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready malts and earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of caramel, toast, toffee, biscuit, brown sugar, light nuttiness, light orange zest, herbal, grass, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Slight earthy herbal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toast, toffee, biscuit, brown sugar, light nuttiness, light orange zest, and herbal/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Good robustness and complexity of dark/bready malts and earthy hop flavor; with a solid malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth and moderately creamy/bready mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish as expected of 5.1%. Overall this is a nice malty amber ale style. All around good robustness, complexity, and balance of dark/bready malts and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Tap. Amber with small head. Sweet caramel with light hop bitterness. Clean and pleasant, but rather bland.
