A: Pours a perfectly translucent amber, capped by just shy of a finger of creamy off-white head. Retention is rather poor as it quickly dissipates to moderate lacing and a healthy ring of foam.
S: Big fresh pumpkin right up front, followed by a heavy dose of cinnamon and nutmeg. Some pie crust lurks in the background along with some green apples.
T: The pumpkin and spice characters are both very muted compared with the nose - the marzen base is solid but unremarkable. The spices become slightly stronger towards the backend and remain through the finish, but are still too weak.
M: Light to medium bodied with high carbonation. Bubbles feel just too sharp and lively for the style.
D: Easily drinkable, partly because the flavors are overall lacking in complexity or strength. Disappointing flavor after a very good aroma.
Serving type: bottle
