4.7/5 rDev +27.4%
Pours out a lightly chill hazed gold with a bone white head. Aroma is all bready malt. Such a clean nose. Flavor is fresh baguette with honey with a finish of floral, grassy hops. A little sweet, but drying in the finish. Mouthfeel is right on: smooth and moderate to full. Awesome Ofest.

3.73/5 rDev +1.1%
500mL bottle into a pint glass
A: Pours a crystal clear light yellow with 3 fingers width of bright white head, which has good retention before dissipating down and leaves a few patches of thick lacing. 3.5
S: Doughy, biscuity, sweet malts, subtle hop spice. 3.75
T: Spice, noble-type floral hops, subtle bitterness, sweet malts to balance. 3.75
M/D: Lighter side of medium body, carbonation on the heavier end, drinkability is good. 3.75
O: Pretty tasty, but not a lot of the typical characteristics that I expect in the style. I enjoyed it quite a bit though. 3.75

4.25/5 rDev +15.2%
Poured from a 330 mL bottle into a Becker glass. Moderate hand. Label is stamped 0214.
A: 4.0 Golden yellow body with excellent clarity. 1.5 fingers of clean, white head. Good retention. Some lacing.
S: 4.25 Grassy noble hops with floral notes. Pale malts bring cracker, lightly toasted bread. Touches of fruit: apple, lemon.
T: 4.25 A flash of noble hops before a swell of lightly sweet maltiness. A flourish of peppery spice midway. The hops rebuild to a mildly bitter, mostly dry finish. The essence of hops and pale malts intermingle in a very clean aftertaste. Minimal alcohol presence.
M: 4.25 Moderate carbonation with a light body, but maintains a certain creaminess.
O: 4.25 True, this one is relatively light for a Marzen, but damn if it isn't a fine brew. Superbly drinkable and really suitable for just about any occasion.
