Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tall New Glarus Signature Pilsner Glass. Bottled on August 26, 2013.
Appearance: Pours a clear copper amber orange with a lot of rising bubbles. About two fingers of off white head that fade into a thin creamy layer. Leaves a good amount of lacing around the glass.
Smell: A toasty and bready malt driven aroma with hints of caramel and rye spice. Toasty malts with bready hints of biscuit, sweet caramel, toffee, grains, cracker, straw, yeast, and nuts. Hints of rye spicing. Subtle hints of dark fruit including fig, dates, and cherry. Subtle earthy hops in the background. A pretty solid malty Marzen style aroma.
Taste: Like the aroma, a toasty, bready, and somewhat spicy malt driven taste with good notes of caramel and rye. Upfront bready taste of toasted malts with notes of biscuit, sweet caramel, toffee, grains, toast, yeast, cracker, straw, and nut. Spicy notes of rye malt. Subtle undertones of dark fruit with notes of dark cherry, dates, and fig. Some earthy hops come through towards the finish. A pretty good malty taste.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Creamy, silky, and very smooth.
Overall: A very solid spin on the Marzen style. Good caramel malt taste and a nice twist from the rye and fruit undertones.
Serving type: bottle
