nice orange tinted light amber with a good two inches or more of head strewn across the top. A nice slow fade left behind more then an adequate layer of lace across the top and some very nice side glass lace when it was done. Smell was very nice, quite light and refreshing with a good amount of grain backing and a nice light earthy sort of hop tone. Definitely some spices mixed in as there was just that little extra kick to it. The flavor was pretty much on point with the aroma. A tight mix of grain and earthy flavors mixed in with a good amount of spice, maybe cinnamon or nutmeg, something fairly nice and had a good overall fall feel to it. Very nice light body with a huge amount of carbonation made it go down super smooth and kept it from feeling too filling. Overall this was definitely a quality selection and I am glad I picked it up. Superb drinkability and just a great overall profile. I really enjoyed this

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.

22 oz. Dark gold, oranged hued pour. Half finger of white head.
Aroma, Bready malt. Light caramel. Lighter yet herbal German style hops.
Taste, Much more toasted malt. Well done peanut brittle. Peat and leather are heavy. Almost a pumpernickel bready-ness. Some of the herbal hops linger along with the leather and bread.
Nearly medium body, good carbonation. Drinks easily for a stronger tasting marzen. Would recommend this for the style.
This years batch seems well done to me. Guessing this doesn't age well, which should be no surprise for the style.
