Waitress is rocking socks with her sandals. Guess I really am in Germany. Holed up in the Bierstube. The märzen is the only thing on tap so I guess I'm drinking that.
The beer is a dark orange/amber that is still transparent. Lightly tanned two finger head that falls down fairly quickly leaving a film on top and lacing down the glass.
Smoky meaty aroma. Kind of weird but the way it should be. There is some slight caramel sweetness underneath.
Tastes smoky and meaty and leaves the same flavor lingering in my mouth. A little malt sweetness hides in there.
It's light-medium bodied with medium carbonation. Drinks fairly smooth and easily.
Oh yes this is a beer. No telling how many of these I had in my couple days in Bamberg.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured from a 16.9 oz bottle in to a snifter.
A- Pours a clear dark brown body with some red around the edges. Head consists of a frothy gray cap which disappears in just seconds.
S- Smokey! Smoked, salty meats. Bacon. Pancetta. Brown sugar ham. A little campfire-like smoke, but it's mostly meat-like.
T- You guessed it... smoked meat all the way. Lighter flavor than the Urbock if I remember correctly. I can easily drink the whole bottle to myself without the flavor raping my taste buds.
M- Light body and medium-light carbonation. I wish it was a little chewier.
O- Pretty tasty overall. I'll definitely be having this and the Urbock sometime in the future.
