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.

This beer pours a bold, clear copper with a thin head but no lace. The aroma is caramel with bread crust and sweet malt. The flavor is heavy on the caramel with a hint of nuts and wood in the finish. It's mouthfeel is medium. Sudwerk Marzen is a good beer, works well on a cool night. Recommended.

nice color, easy to drink, slight bitterness but overall mostly satisfying and enjoyable. sudwerk doesnt seem to be a very large brew capacity, and its beer and menu selection will not load off the their website. extremely average beer....more like a 'session beer' and not indicative of the original scope of a real marzen....

3.03/5  rDev -13.9%

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Look – dark amber color, clear, with about half a finger’s worth of foam that dissipates quickly.

Smell – more malty than hoppy, but past that, I can’t discern any other aroma.

Taste – still more malty than hoppy, but within in the taste lies a spiciness that’s not in the aroma. It’s not strong, but it’s there. Aftertaste is pretty bland.

Mouthfeel – well balanced, but still leans heavily toward the watery side.

Overall – not a bad tasting brew at all, but not at all interesting or intriguing.

3.08/5  rDev -12.5%

Poured from a bottle with initially a good thick head which thinned out quickly, Amber colored lager, brewed with five speciality malts though they're not listed on the label.

A bland taste, slightly nutty, an easy drink that leaves no lasting impression.

A pleasant enough drink but not a standout.
