22oz bomber from GBX.

Amber to orange color with streaks of red showing through. 1-finger cap of foam, with little retention. Not much in the way of lace.

Caramel and bread malts with light pine and floral hops define the nose. About right for the style.

Lots of bread malt, touches of caramel, a bit of strawberry licorice without the sweetness and a touch of pine hops in the finish. A bit hoppier than most marzens, but I like it.

Body has a touch of syrup, but otherwise very drinkable.

A solid marzen with a hoppy twist on the style.

3.66/5  rDev +2.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

22 ounce bottle - $6.48 at Sherlock's in Marietta, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a lightly hazed, amber-orange body with a finger and finger only of white foam.

Smell: Sweet accented bready, softly toasted malts with a slender waft of fruit and nuts. Very meager hop note, but I'm getting to this a bit later than I probably should. I was unfair and I apologize for my poor behavior.

Taste: Bready maltiness, lightly toasty, blended with a restrained toffee-like sweetness, a swell of fruitiness, toasted cashew, and subtle spiciness from the lightly bitter Perle hops. The sweet maltiness and almost berryish fruitiness persists after the bitter subsides on the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Just on the underside of medium carbonation.

Overall: Not perfect, but smooth, drinkable, served alongside some grilled cheddarwurst from local Heywood's Provision.
