The pint has a truly inviting,warm, subdued orange color. I'm not just being non-descript, its truly orange, like a lollypop. It is crystal clear and has about three fingers of fluffy bright white head that dissapates to thin film with dissapointing efficency.
I caught a slight whiff of sweet malt in the nose, with just a hint of cinnamon.
The taste is a light, mellow, malt sweetness with some nut characteristics that are quickly washed away by very citrusy hop bitterness. The aftertaste is bready and pleasing. Though this is not the most complex beer, I feel it is probably the most balanced example of the Marzen style I've had. The color is right-on and it avoids the sickly-sweetness that can often plague a Marzen.
