Growler filled at Growlers in Hilton Head, SC. Poured into a Westbrook Pint Glass.

A - Pours a Clear, dark copper with a thin white head that dissipated to a slight haze.
S - Crisp, clean aromas of toasted malt, caramel, roasted nuts, and herbal German hops. Quite nice, there's a lovely spicy/cinnamon quality to this brew.
T - Similar to the nose, nice malty flavors of caramel, baked bread, and roasted nuts with a clean Lager yeast and more German hops (Perle). Very drinkable.
M - Smooth and moderately crisp, with a medium mouthfeel and good carbonation. This would be a nice session beer if it wasn't 6% ABV.
O - Really solid Marzen from a great brewery, glad I got to try this here in mid-October, it fits the season well!

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

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.

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.

A: Poured from a bottle to a mug. Had an amber color and a hazy texture. There was a small amount of foamy head that quickly dissipated. Not much lacing.

S: A somewhat muted aroma of malt, hops, and caramel.

T: Tasted of light hops, caramel malt, and a small amount of spices. This is another one of those flavors that grew on me as it went along. It's pretty vibrant and very much in keeping with the style.

M: A good amount of carbonation with a sharp, smooth finish. Medium-bodied.

O: Even though this beer has some rough spots, it's still very enjoyable and definitely drinkable.
