Fairly good example of the style but fails to stand-up to its German counterparts. The body is a little light for a Marzen but the head was a nice not-too-thin cap. Aroma is primarily biscuit-like malt with a nominal caramel character and ever-so-slight spice/earthy quality given from the hops. Flavors here are pretty standard for a Marzen with an emphasis on the malt; however, the mouthfeel is a bit too thin lacking the lingering bread notes a Marzen usually carries. The added rye probably lends to this as this one finishes noticeably dry. A very refreshing beer with enough hop character to balance out the malt focus, which makes for a solid summer brew.
Serving type: on-tap
