3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap. Pours a clear deep orange color with a medium head that dissipates rapidly. Flavor is malt forward, notes of roast and toffee. Medium bodied. Hops are very minimal, just a hint towards the end that drys it out a bit. Well balanced, just what I’m looking for in a sessionable Marzen.
