Pint can poured into a tankard.

Appearance: Pours a bright orange with a big, thick head (about two inches) that recedes to film over about seven minutes. Carbonation fairly heavy and lacing moderate.

Aroma: Smells like caramel, toasted, buttery bread and sweet malts. Also some piny hops in there, and a floral character.

Taste: Very tasty marzen. The taste follows the nose, but is bolder. A sweet caramel character dominates, but toast and malts are also very present. Definitely a solid German-style lager. Finishes strong, too.

Mouthfeel: The body is just right. Just dense enough.

Overall: This is definitely worth seeking out among the parade of marzens that hits the market every fall. It stands out because of it's malt-forward character and because it's a pretty solid buy (six tallboys for around $9-$10). The sweetness is there but it's far from overpowering. I paired this with pupusas, plantains and rice & beans and it was perfect; I love pairing Latin American food with German-style lagers. I'd have this again for sure - next time probably in season (found it on sale among fall remainders).
