I've had a few of these recently and I quite like them. The pour reveals a deep amber color and a nice full head. The foam retains well and leaves lots of lacing around the glass. The smell is nothing special-- nothing really bad or off putting about it but nothing special. The taste is mild but really nice, it has a good balance of malt vs hops, neither being too pronounced. The carbonation level is right where it needs to be and the mouthfeel is great. This beer is very drinkable and goes well with food. I like Sudwerk because its local to me and I can get super fresh and tasty brews.

Pours a hazed copper. Off white head.
Smells of sugary malt and fruit. Possibly a light bit of toast.
Caramel and toast are big in the taste as well. A bit sweet and tangy from the yeast employed. Medium bodied, spritzy carbonated feel, perhaps a bit too aggressive. Overall this is an average Marzen.

Sudwerk Marzen Lager

A- Appearance is dark amber, very carbonated, and there is very little head.

S- Malty, piney hops.

T- Good carbonation, well rounded, very drinkable. Great session beer. I like that a local company (other than GB) is attempting this style. I will be bringing this one into the store because I've had requests for more marzens, and it seems to fit my client base.
