Pours the expected color for the style but that's where it ends.

Smells like wet, rotten grain.

Taste is over-hopped. All I can taste is hop oil and wet, rotten grain.

This was a drain-pour.

This is the worst beer I have had in a long time. Very disappointing.

Unfortunate as I do like Beau's lagered ale (kolsh)

craft beer does not always mean good beer.

good thing I had some banquet beer in the fridge.

I don't just drink macros, so don't go there. Had Grand River Pumpkin (very good for the style) and a Worthington's White Shield IPA (A+ for the style) earlier today.

Don't waste your money.

Purchased at the LCBO for $4.85 for a 600ml bottle. Served at 4deg C in a draught glass

A- 3.5- Opens well decent head. Clear and fairly dark golden color

S- 3.5- Ok at best. Malt is there but that's about it

T- 3.75- Very light considering the style. Soft malt, not a lot of hops but some are there. Very mellow all around

M- 3.75- Light for this style of beer. Malt shows through later on. Tongue coating at times

O- 3.75- Pretty good. Will not buy again though. Pretty expensive for the flavor

Food Pairing

This pretty good beer went well with...... Roasted chicken with potato

Enjoy

From a 600 ml bottle to a pint glass.

Night Märzen pours an orange/amber with a two to three finger head, which is foamy or soapy in appearance and breaks down leaving a thin layer of bubbles. The smell is mild and has hints of hops and malts, it is remarkably unremarkable. The traste brings out the hops a bit more but that is on the tail end. That is where most of the flavor is in this beer, on the tail end...malts and toffee also come through mid range to tail end as well. There is little up front but a subtle grassy taste. The mouth feel is light to medium and the carbonation is mild.

Overall, I found this to be an average beer. It is not something in would revisit. Interestingly enough several of my friends swear by this beer. Personal preference being what it is, I guess that is why we all review separately and not collectively.

600ml brown bottle with a freshness date.

Brassy hue, clear with a sufficient amount of head. Aromas of rich toasted malt, bread crust, hay, and faint sweet herbal hop ... very clean. Love the smoothness, good crisp bite. Full malt jacket, clean and I can taste everything from light grassiness to bread to a hint of chicory. Hoppiness is just enough to balance with a kiss of herbal flavor. Finishes dry with lots of toasted grain.

Solid, perhaps not the most epic of the style but it leaves me wanting a lot more.

3.88/5  rDev +5.4%

Appearance: It has a nice deep golden/orange color to it. It has a nice
off-white head that dies down moderately and leaves little lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of caramel, bready malts, grains, grassy hops and light spices.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has some grains, bready malts, with grassy hops balancing it out, some caramel and some toffee.

Mouthfeel: It has a light carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with good flavors and aromas. Very refreshing!

3.83/5  rDev +4.1%

Appearance: A rusty copper body boasts high amounts of thin carbonation. The head produced a solid finger and a half, but did not lace nor retain very well.

Smell: Overwhelming caramel malt with a grassy hop background and a couple orange and peach notes. Nothing fancy, nothing overtly special. Warming brings out the fruitier notes.

Taste: Ample caramel malt floods the tastebuds and is slowly supplanted by fruitier orange, peach and apricot elements as a flash of pine and grassy hops finishes off the beer.

Mouthfeel: The carbonation here very finely walks the balance between creamy and bubbly and smooth transistioning helps out the case as well. There is a nice mixed taste aftertaste to the beer which if stronger and more complex would have won the perfect score.

Drinkability: Medium bodied that while remarkably easy to drink, I don't know if I would want more then two. This beer walks a strange line to me, like it should be heavier then it is, but it still serves it well.

Final Thoughts: Certainly a beer worth trying and as a seasonal, yeah I'd say it's appropriate. I wouldn't want it in the the summer, but certainly any other time.
