tap

Pours an amber brown with an off-white lacing for a head.

Smells of caramel and sweet biscuity malts with a notable sugary element.

Flavor is of sugary malt, biscuit, hints of coppery malt, and a light dry bitter finish.

Medium body with a tingle of carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

A solid drinkable sessionable marzen that hits the spot. Doesn't wow, but gets the job done and is actually quite enjoyable if a little forgettable. Worth a try.

First had: on tap at the Collegeville brewpub

Reddish-copper color, dark but still clear, with a small white ringlet for a head; no retention or lacing to speak of. Aroma is sweet and malt-driven. As expected, very malty taste, sweet, toasty, caramel and a touch of brown sugar; hops are mildly earthy and almost non-existent. Smooth and easily drinkable, medium-bodied. Pretty good. One of the better selections I had from Appalachian.
