The first two stores I tried to buy this from had sold out, was happy to find it at the third. Poured in to a stein.

A: Finger and a half of bubbly, dense head, amber/copper appearance with a decent lace throughout

S: Toasted caramel nose

T: Big doughy, malty taste, a little more than medium bodied, with warming spice in the aftertaste

O: Great beer, from start to finish, a prime example of the style.

Bright amber, strong clarity with a soft layer of creamy foam on the surface. A bit of spindly lace around the edges of the glass, rising trails of carbonation visible.

Softly nutty, bready, and slightly floral aroma.

Smooth feel, mellow and supple, toasted malts, nutty and bready as in the aroma. Apple and walnuts, a slight bitterness in the aftertaste. A light to medium bodied feel, soft carbonation, very agreeable. Easy to have a few at a time, and pair with food. Glad they finally bottled this.

12oz bottle
A 4 - copper colored beer with a creamy ivory head that holds excellent retention
S 3.75 - spicy noble hops, yeast, toasty grain, caramel, toffee
T 4 - caramel, toasted grain, toffee, yeast, nice moderately bitter spicy finish
M 4.5 - smooth, fuller body, pleasant carbonation, clean finish
O 4 - one of the best American brewed märzens I've had. Bold flavors, yet very well balanced and very easy to drink.
