Enjoyed from a Sam Adams glass.
Appearance: Clear, dark amber. Very seasonal. A thick foam head sinks to a creamy haze over the top.
Smell: Mild and malty.
Taste: The malt really drives the flavor of this beer. Faint hints of toasted nuts (I do mean faint). Takes a slight turn towards the sweet side after it goes down the throat. Nothing overwhelming, pleasant aftertaste.
Mouthfeel: Medium body. They got the carbonation right on this one. Smooth, yet a bubbly texture is defined.
Overall: I am a huge fan of Marzen beers. Sam Adams really gets this right. Comparing this to its competitors... Sam Adams takes the gold in my opinion. There are more complex and, well, I guess you could call them better beers in this style but when all else fails, this one is great.
Serving type: bottle
