look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Served in a bottle at Mozelle's Fresh Southern Bistro in Winston-Salem, NC

A: Pours a crystal clear medium copper in color with light to moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass with some faint burnt orange and amber highlights. The beer has a half finger tall sudsy foamy off-white head that reduces to a large patch of very thin film and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of caramel and toasted malts with a lighter aroma of floral and earthy hops.

T: Upfront there are moderate flavors of bready, caramel, and toasted malts that have some very light hints of spice. There is a light to moderate flavor of earthy and floral hops which contribute a light amount of bitterness which fades pretty quickly.

M: Just shy of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation.

O: I found this one to be a pretty enjoyable beer and one that paired nicely with my lunch (pimento cheese burger and fries). Enough flavor to stand up to the food but not overpowering. Easy to drink with pretty well hidden alcohol.

Had this one at the source on a past ticking trip to Asheville! Served from tap into a Green Man sampler shaker. Poured yellow-orange with a half finger white head that subsided to a minimal amount quickly. Maintained nice lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, earth, wheat, grain, and subtle spice. The flavor was of sweet malt, wheat, grain, earth, and subtle earth hop. It had a light feel on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall this was a pretty decent brew. Upon first inspection it was quite easy to pick up on the style of this brew which was really nice. It had a nice earthy character going on with some nice hints of grain and spices. This really made me look forward to taking a sip to see if this carried on to the flavor. While it did, it just didn't have a huge bit of complexity going on and seemed somewhat one-dimensional. Granted for the style it was definitely above average. Definitely worth your time if you are a Marzen fan to stop by Dirty Jack's and have a pint of this one if it is in season. You won't regret your decision. Tick.

Thanks to Wil for sharing this one!

Very dark reddish copper, slightly hazy, with creamy foam on top that leaves behind a velvety collar and halo of delicate lacing in the glass.

Vague bready malt and lager yeast aromas that are indistinct.

Toasted grains, husks, walnuts, a fair amount of bittering hops. Light aftertaste of grape from the yeast, nutshells. More bitter than most Oktoberfests, it's got a bit of a bite to it, and a medium body. Smooth feel with mellow carbonaion. Overall a good beer, just not the most traditional, more like an ESB or something.

A: Pours a clear copper with a finger of off-white head that fades into a thin ring with little lacing.

S: Caramel, crystal, and Munich malt aromas on the nose with some burnt toffee and sweet floral hop notes.

T: Similar malt profile here with a hearty bread flavor dominating. There are also notes of burnt sugar, caramel, and piney hops. The finish is a little more bitter than usual for the style, but not overwhelming.

M: Medium-light body with medium carbonation, this beer isn't quite as crisp as I'd like, but avoids being watery.

O: A unique and solid interpretation of the style. It's definitely a lot hoppier than most Marzens, but it works well.

12oz bottle into a snifter. The brew appears a clear copper color with an off-white creamy topping. Some stringy lace sticks to the glass as the cap fades.

The smell includes notes of caramel and toffee malt with minerals and almost a perfume sort of alcohol inclusion.

The taste too includes minerals and is carbonic with a bit of perfume alcohol. Some herbal hops, slightly citrus feel overtop toffee, caramel and buttery diacetyl into the finish.

This is medium to light bodied with a modest amount of carbonation. It is crisp but overall just ok.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: a dark copper amber colored beer with almost no head on the pour. This is pretty standard for a marzen, but this looks appetizing.

Smell: I don't smell anything in particular other than the alcohol. Hops are a little bit obvious after trying to smell it again. It smells like your standard hopy beer.

Taste: A very mild hoppy taste. The alcohol is nicely balanced with this flavor. I really enjoy drinking this beer, and i would recommend it to others.

Mouthfeel: Medium carbonation, with a light to medium thickness. This is a perfect balance.

Overall: i really liked this beer, it looks the part. It doesn't smell as strong as it should which is only mild but it tastes really good. Not too bitter but not sweet at all. The mouthfeel makes it enjoyable.
