4.03/5 rDev +6.9%
Beer poured from bottle into a Nonic shaped pint glass
A - Beer pours with a clear and very dark amber, almost brown, colored body; very well-carbonated; frothy one finger sized head formed after the pour; quality lacing formed on the side of the glass
S - Airy lager nose; apple and slightly fruity; rice and cool fermented yeast; smooth and crisp; touch of allspice or grains of paradise; faint hint of Noble hops
T - Toasted bread malt goodness; rice; interesting blend of spices, there has to be grains of paradise in here, leaves a very dry feel on the tongue; faint taste of hops, comes up at the end of the sip
M - Rinse and soapy; medium bodied beer; lingering lager airiness and taste turns very malty after a while, with a heavy dry aftertaste
D - Clean and pleasant taste; refreshing lager characteristics make this an enjoyable beer for anytime of the day, from dinner to summertime

22oz bottle shared with nicoco. Poured into generic tulip glasses.
A: Hazy amber/brown. Pours with about 1/4" of off-white head that quickly dissipates. Decent amount of spotty lacing.
S: Roasted malts...smells like an Oktoberfest?
T: Cloves, roasted malts...but overall, kind of watery.
M: Thin, leaves much to be desired. Light carbonation, nothing too crazy.
O: It's an Oktoberfest, what can I say? I've never had one that was interesting or complex, but that's not really the purpose of the style. That said, I'd rather have a Spaten.

Serving glass: Poured from bottle into Dimpled Mug.
Appearance: Slightly hazy reddish-amber with thin head.
Smell: Cherry, spicy noble hops and some light caramel and biscuit.
Taste: Fairly sweet caramel, cherry and biscuit. Slightly spicy hops on the finish with some lingering cherry and biscuit.
Feel: Moderate carbonation, medium lager body, slightly dry finish.
Overall: Pretty standard Marzen, and even a little on the sweet side. Expected more from Three Floyds, but nevertheless very well done.

22 oz bomber Thanks Kevin!
A- Deep copper color topped by a finger of off-white foam. A bit of lacing sticks to the glass.
S- Sweet malt. Caramel. Bread. A bit of spice.
T- Opens with big caramel presence. Sweet, bready malt characteristics dominate the flavor. Notes of lemon and honey. Some spice, nutmeg and clove perhaps.
M- Medium body leaning toward thick. Medium carbonation. The beer has a creamy feel to it.
O- All the characteristics of a traditional Marzen are here. Nothing crazy or earth shattering going on. Just a nice, classic example of the style.

On tap in a pint glass at Bodega on 10/21/11
Cloudy tobacco brown. Not much foam. No retention.
Smells... blah. Apple, pear and earthy hops with some caramel and grain. Smells plasticine. Buttery aroma, too. Dusty biscuit and yeast amid herbal, tea and leafy hops. Decent showing of bread with a spot of caramel. A hint of cocoa - huh? Finishes dry with a generic hop note. Medium body; dry feel. Nippy carbonation. Coating - almost waxy.
Not exactly terrible but pretty unremarkable. Meh.
