3.53/5  rDev -1.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Deep, clear dark gold color. The head is large and foamy and leaves behind lots of lacing.

S - Toasty, yeasty aroma with a bit of brown sugar sweetness in the background. A nice floral hops aroma is present as well

T - Tastes like biscuits with some sweetness, but the hops take over quickly leading to a bitter finish. I love hops in the right beer, but it seems out of place in this marzen.

M - Fairly light with lots of carbonation.

D - The flavor is nice, but it lacks sweetness and it's too crisp and hoppy compared to my favorite Octoberfest beers. Not bad, but nothing that I'd seek out again.
