4.13/5 rDev +11.6%
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a 12 oz mug- pours a clear dark orange with one finger of light beige head, decent retention, minimal lacing.
Smell is pretty grainy- munich barley, a hint of caramel. Good, but a little faint.
Taste is very nice and certainly a rousing oktoberfest. Lots of good solid barley flavor, some caramel, a little toffee, BARELY noticeable hops that just sort of tend the edges of the malt sweetness.
Mouthfeel is good as well- medium bodied, light carbonation on the tip of the tongue. Very drinkable. I love this style but haven't had the opportunity to try too many- this one is good but perhaps in a month I might say differently.

Enjoyed at the brewpub in Downingtown, PA
A: thin head which may be related to the pour on a clear golden with copper hues body. Nice lacing.
S: toasted and sweet caramel malts. Light herbal and earthy hop notes. Fairly simple and a light aroma.
T: toasted and caramel malts throughout. Oak and nuts. This one isn't very spicy and is very simple as so many breweries do with this style. Light citrus bitterness up front as well.
M: medium body and moderate carbonation.
Overall: typical large craft brewery marzen. Doesn't have the spiciness or malt profile to stand out or be memorable. Very drinkable and clean overall.

Review from 11/2010 notes. Poured into a Nostradamus flute glass. Pours a medium orange amber. Slight head dissipated slowly leaving light lacing. Grainy, light malt aroma. Caramel, malt, slightly sweet. A pleasant light malty ale. A straightforward, but unremarkable Marzen.
