3.13/5  rDev -5.2%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 3

A: Pours a deep, clear amber-orange color. The medium-sized off-white head has a slight caramel tint and a foamy texture. Retention is fair, and a bit of soapy lacing sticks to the glass in irregular rings.

S: Firmly malty in the nose, with some robust caramel notes. Some moderate breadiness as well. Lightly toasty and nutty, with some mildly sour yeastiness in the background. Faint herbal hop notes.

T: Sweet caramel and firm grainy/bready flavors up front. Mild toasty and nutty flavors. There is a bit of adjunct flavor at play, and the typical Yuengling yeast tanginess. Hop bitterness is appropriately low, adding some faint balance to an otherwise malty and somewhat sweet beer.

M: Thin-bodied and a bit astringent. Carbonation is withering. A bit of stickiness initially fades pretty quickly and becomes quite dry.

D: This is not a particularly enjoyable Marzen. In terms of flavor, it's solid, but I wasn't a fan of the mouthfeel or lack of complexity. This also shows some unusually prominent yeast character that seems out of place.
