3.36/5 rDev +1.2%
In a pint glass:
A: clear brown body with a slight red hue, thick cream colored head that fades fairly slowly with a fair amount of lacing
S: malty, nutty, sweet, caramel, toffee
T: overly sweet nutty caramel, malty, hmmm, I used to like this a lot more, something's different
M: light to medium bodied, very sessionable, no aftertaste and finish
O: I used to really love this one, but something has changed, and I seem to be drawn away from this, just decent for its style and decent to me

3/5 rDev -9.6%
Poured into an Irish pint glass. The beer is a nice crisp amber color, with hints of ruby red. The head is a light cream color, that dissipates to a small film, with decent sticky lacing. Smells of caramel malts and toffee, and metallic. The beer tastes really well. Toffee and caramel dominate the taste profile, with a malty overtone. But metallic. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and easily drinkable.
Overall, this was better than I expected. I chose to purchase a sixer of cans, and poured into a pint glass. It tasted fresh, clean, and very much in the vein of a marzen with malty and caramel overtones. Very pleasant.

Poured in a pint glass, 12/2
A- Nice finger and a half off-white head. Domed head, it looked tasty. Dark brown, well carbonated. Medium spotty lacing.
S- Medium bodied malts, nut smells.
T- Light flavor, nut and malts rise out though. Sweeter flavor.
M- Thicker bodied for a low ABV beer. Nice lingering finish as well. Well carbonated.
O- For such a mass-produced beer, this really is a nice change of pace. I've had it before and I'm sure I'll have it again.

Review from notes.
A: Pours a amber/brown with ruby highlights. A small off-white head on top, reduces rather quickly to a thin layer on top, sporadic lacing.
S: Lots of caramel and a good bit of nuts. Slight floral hop presence, but the caramel and nuts dominate.
T: Very similar to the aroma, lots of smooth caramel, a little honey, and some nuts. Very light grassy/floral hop presence.
M: Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Drinks pretty easy.
O: Not bad, not great. Can get it pretty cheap at my local pub, but usually don't.
