3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Malty aroma. Medium head leaves lacing on the glass. Medium carbonation. Malty flavor finishes with a hop bitterness. This beer had an off flavor I couldn't identify.
Pours a light brownish red color with a very thin off-white head. Smells of malty sweetness, like molasses or syrup. Tastes very sweet with a kind of dark sugar. Sweet dark malt flavors.
Thickish. Drinks like a bigger, darker beer. Could use a little more carbonation.
Not bad. I could drink a few of these. beerguy101 (5364) - Newark, California, USA - OCT 4, 2002
Medium amber color, medium head. Slightly malty, slightly hoppy. Nice aroma. Crisp with a nice malt flavor, somewhat hoppy. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is somewhat bitter, somewhat matly. Sickboy282 (1116) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 21, 2002
This is best marzen style lager I have tasted ever. I would still drink their extra pale ale if I had the choice. theslick199 (26) - California, USA - NOV 13, 2001
A little darker in color than their Extra Pale Ale but tastes similar, which is nice. I've heard that SLO Brewing has quit bottling their beers but I found some last weekend so who knows.

Only got to sample one bottle, nice and bold, malty with a nice hop sting at the finish.
