Typical Marzen dark copper but it was so clean that it looked artificial. The head was thick mounted stiffly and collared slowly.

The scent was simply too weak to rate particularly high. A sweet malt and grain tone was evident but it was not profound.

The flavors, too, were weak but what I did catch was a nice grain, bran and caramel malt. Some low-like sweetness there was a dry bready texture.

I feel like Bells products are typically more solid than this was. What I did get was awfully good but it simply did not assert itself as it should.
