The beer when i poured it into a pint glass, it has a nice amber color body with not a lot of head that thins down to a thin lace. The smell is of carmel and malty. The malt hits you up front, first thing i taste. Then some earthy hops comes along, but not strong. The mouth feel is nice and crisp. Overall this is a average marzen.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

appearance is a nice copper and head is small and light.
Odor is light. Doesn't really have much. A little malty, but still pretty light.
Mouth feel is pretty good. It is a nice beer that is in the middle ground(not too heavy, not too light).
Taste is good. It is the best thing about this beer. It is very malty and low on hops. Taste is pretty balanced and has a hint of sweet or nutty. Finish is a little plain.
