A- copper colored with maybe one finger of head. what head there is, though stays for quite a while

S- vienna malt, grains and a hint of all-spice

T- copious amounts of malt, vienna malt in particular. just a tiny bit of hops which add a little spice towards the middle. toasted malts make a late appearance, but mingle for a while

O- a great marzen. could have been close to perfection had there been a tad more hops to break up the malt a little

Reviewed from session notes.

A. Reddish coppery-amber in color, clear, with a two finger off-white head that lasts for about a minute, minimal lacing left behind.

S. Breaded sweet morning buns. Lots of lightly toasted malt and brown sugar going on at once. Perhaps even a light touch of creamy nougat aroma.

T. Very similar to how the nose presents. The only main difference is that the mid-palate contains some nuttiness on the toasted elements.

M. Lands on the heavier side of medium body, lightly carbonated.

I bought a single bottle of this from Woodman's in Janesville, WI for $1.79 in Fall 2011.

Pours a medium brown color with slight head. Scent is malty with some spices in the mix. Taste has a lot of spices like cinnamon, clove, and other roasted spices. The texture is fantastic with a clean finish that leaves the tasty spices lingering. A great brew!
