look: 2.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

This is from some old beer notes I found while getting ready for a move.

Appearance: It has a light copper colored body. The head and lace were thin, white and disappeared quickly.

Smell: The aroma was the closest thing to a German Marzen this beer had. Caramel malt and bread like yeast tones that were pleasant to the nose.

Taste: It tasted alright but not true to the style. There were small Marzen qualities like biscuit qualities but that was really it.

Mouthfeel: Medium with hardly any bite.

Overall: My issue once again lies with the fact that it is not true to the style. It was an alright beer that I would drink again under a different name.
