3.7/5 rDev +0.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
A: Clear amber color, carbonated. Off-white head that doesn't retain long, not much lacing.
S: Sweet smell, mostly caramel. Some herbal notes as well...
T: Very malty up front, mostly caramel malts and some bready malt flavors. Has a slight sour acidic finish. Not much hop flavor there, mostly malts. Getting a very baked bread/sourdough flavor from this.
M: Has the borderline-watery, crisp feel that lagers typically have. Carbonation is good.
D: Not bad, pretty drinkable marzen. I like the malt flavors from this. I could have done without the sourness I was getting from it, but overall, pretty good.
Serving type: bottle
