Poured from the can into a tall pilsner style glass.

Real nice orange to peach bronze amber body color. Quite light and bright actually with some small rising carbonation. Soapy even three finger head that settles to a small collar with some good lacing. Very attractive looking beer.

Nose is crispy smelling malts. Slight caramel, and very clean smelling. A bit of tonic water and quinine like whiffs as well. Malt action seems to be taking a back seat.

Palate is quite full and very light and extremely flavorful. Crispy action with crackling malt and good mix of caramel. Brown sugar and clove like spices, with a very light palate. Clean finish with a minor sticky quality. Good depth with a very light body.

Overall just a very solid enjoyable Marzen, really like the German styles from this brewery.

12oz can poured into a shaker pint.
Oktoberfest in January, why not?

Appearance
Very cloudy amber with 1 finger of white head. Decent retention.

Nose
Bread, toast, caramel and brown sugar.

Taste
Very mellow flavor profile. Toasted white bread and caramel, perhaps some rye bread. Notes of brown sugar and earth. Just a touch of honeydew. Some residual bitterness.

Mouthfeel
Medium bodied, crisp and clean.

Overall
This is a really nice Marzen even if it is a little out of date. I'll be sure to grab some fresh ones this year.
