Basically, this is a lighter marzen lager. It reminds me a lot of Paulaner's Oktoberfest Wiesn, which is a lighter and more drinkable beer than a standard marzen.
The color is golden-yellow and the head is rather large and frothy.
The aroma is quite light and mainly consists of sweet grains and earthy/herbal hops.
Flavor-wise, it's got a tinge of earthiness from the Munich malt, but mainly has a sweeter malt flavor. Hops come in to bitter midway through, but the sweetness comes back through on the finish. A very clean flavor. Not too complicated, but still enjoyable.
It's medium to light in body and extremely drinkable.
