Bronzish color, with a decent off-white head that didn't stick around long. Bit of a toasted and floral aroma, guessing from the malts and hops respectively.
Taste brings out the toasted malts and the hop characteristics as well, but weakly. The taste just doesn't seem to be very much into this beer. It's a bit thin and watery, too.
I liked this one last year, but I'm not too impressed this year. After ImBev's buyout, I'm not looking forward to what's gonna happen to this brew next year.
Serving type: on-tap

3.5/5 rDev -2.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Clear golden color with a thick two finger head with decent retention and leaving some laces.
Floral aroma with notes of Munich malt sweetness and lager yeast.
Flavor is more present with notes of biscuit malt with controlled sweetness balanced by herbal and floral hops. Just a hint of caramel, spices and citrusy acidity. Mildly dry aftertaste with a light to medium bitterness.
Light bordering medium body with appropriate carbonation.
A pleasant Märzen, although quite malty it is not cloying, showing that hops are doing their work behind the curtains. Faithful to style.
