Half-liter had at Krug Park, Omaha, NE
Arrived with a fairly fluffy off-white head, which decreased to a thin film over the top after a few minutes. Moderately dark brown-amber body, transparent, some carbonation. Modest, spotty lacing occurs with each sip.
Smell is primarily of deep, layered malts and floral hops.
Taste similar to smell, with fairly velvety malt sweetness accompanied by floral and grassy hops flavors in the background. Aftertaste is malty, not cloying, and pleasant.
Mouthfeel is, as suggested above, very smooth. Body is moderate, not heavy or light. Drinks very easily, consistently, and reliably.
From what I know of Marzen styles, this is fairly true to the standards and doesn't show many obvious flaws. If some find it too plain, they are simply stating the obvious and decrying the beer's intended focus on a specific style and method of brewing.
Serving type: on-tap

Pours translucent amber with 1/2 inch of off-white head that fades to a thin cap on top and leaves nice spotty lace.
Smell is somewhat muted and consists of grainy malt, Autumn spices and faint citrus.
Taste is of grains and malt with accents of cinnamon, clove and nutmeg with faint tart citrus on the finish.
Texture is medium bodied with high carbonation.
A decent, if not remarkable, effort. Easy drinking and sessionable.
