Poured from a .5 liter bottle into a stein- pours a somewhat hazy burnt orange color, with two fingers of bubbly light beige head. Modest retention, some nice spots and streaks of lacing.
I get a crisp barley smell from this one- some caramel, a little bit of hops. Perhaps a touch of wheat. Nice, but very subtle.
Taste is very nice- interestingly enough, there's a decent hop presence in this marzen, really distinguishing it from the german variety. The hops are there throughout, and are slightly bitter and a little earthy. Caramel malt and some wheat smooth out the flavor. Their house yeast is certainly present in this one.
Mouthfeel is very good but again different than traditional oktoberfests- medium light mouthfeel, moderate to full carbonation, moderately dry finish. It's an interesting take on the marzen/oktoberfest style. It's jack's abby, so of course I love it. If you're looking for a traditional smooth, super malty oktoberfest, look elsewhere.
Update: It's definitely better a little closer to room temperature.
