bhensonb (14316) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 4, 2010
Bottle from Total Wine in Roseville, CA. Pours light amber with a foamy off-white head. Sort of a burnt caramel aroma. Medium body with frothy carbonation. Flavor is pretty much scorched caramel with a little grassy hop. It’s drinkable, but it’s not to die for.

argo0 (13424) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 6, 2006
(12oz bottle) Medium off-white head atop a clear amber body. Aroma is medium sweet, caramel, cookie. Taste is medium sweet, caramel, some cookie, light metallic. Light-medium body, light acidity. Not bad, but lacks the characteristics of what I think of as a marzen.

12-oz. bottle. Pours brass with loads of tiny fast-rising bubbles and a small diminishing off-white head; some falling lined lacing. Light caramel malt (meal, cereal) and cardboard yeast (horse blanket) aroma and faint fruit (apple) hops. Light roasted caramel malt sweet yeast flavor with apple hops and a sour to bitter finish.
