look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12 oz. bottle poured into a Sam Adams glass.

Pouring a burnished copper color, Moerlein's marzen is topped by a thin eggshell head that fades quickly and leaves no lacing. Lively carbonation from the bottom of the glass. Standard appearance for the style

Fairly mild aroma, though typical of style – toffee, big caramel sweetness, baked bread, and a dash of earthy/floral hops. Not outstanding, but solid.

Moerlein's take on the style is interesting. It's definitely on the sweeter side – lots of caramel and toffee with a nearly syrupy sweetness from the malt, but not cloying or artificial. There is more hop presence than one might predict; the sweetness is held in check by a supporting bill of floral and tea-like hops.

Smooth mouthfeel that is refreshing on the palate. The finish is sweet with a bit of hop flavor for balance.

Absolutely drinkable and sessionable. As far as “textbook” examples of the style go, you can't go wrong with this. Another solid lager from Moerlein.
