look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Fairly clear dark amber colour with a small, shortlasted, light tan head.

Big, bready malt aroma with lots of melanoidin. Plenty of toffee as well. Slightly herbal. A touch too sweet.

Bready, malty and smooth but ultimately quite sweet. A touch too sugary for my likes in the style. Otherwise decent.

Medium to medium-full body with moderate carbonation. Fine.

A fair but uninspiring beer with a touch too much sweetness to be great.

Pours light copper wtih a quickly fading head.
Nose shows lovely nutty malt in abundance! Very potent! Not much else though...
Nutty malt continues as a flavours alongside a little caramel. Pretty light on after that though. Need more malt, the nutty malt alone gets a bit boring.
Soft carbonation could be higher.

Grabbed this at the brewery. Believe it was to be a limited offering but seems like they are keeping it on due to its popularity.

Pours nice with a nice head to drink through. Could not smell much from it but thats usual for me. The taste is good, nice and malty. Nice and creamy and like all 2 Brothers Beers, very drinkable. Possibly dangerous at 6.3%.

pours a pleasing pale copper colour with a thick creamy head that leave plenty of lacing.

grassy hops and sweet honey malt, some cornflakey ness creeping in

similar to the aroma, some grassy hops, then sweet honey malts, and the the slight cornflake think happens again. slight alcahol long after.

full bodied

fairly drinkable, abv is pretty well hidden. But not grainy, effervescent or delicately hopped enough to be a great marzen for me. Still, a pretty resonable effort from a brewery i have plenty of time for.
