Pours copper with a small lasting head.
Nose shows rye bready, sultanas, caramel, bready malt and hints of spicy cedar.
Creamy, nutty flavours with some bready malt too. Quite sweet.

What an unusual twist on a Marzen. I didn't know how much I'd like this, even though Marzens are one of my favorite styles. But man, I really dug this one. It's sweet, but the rye flavor makes it just a little different than most biscuity or malty Oktoberfests. This one, despite being in my comfort zone stylistically, definitely opened my eyes to a new flavor. I'll definitely get this again.
