Poured from the 12 oz. brown glass bottle into my straight sided tumbler. Rich mahogany reddish brown with a small amount of dark white head which quickly dissapates. Smell is of toffee and caramel sugar. Raisiny caramel flavors are a bit more pronounced than the average German Maarzen. Hop balance is correct for the style. Body is also a touch more intense than the German counterpart. Drinkability would only be improved if there were 250 fellow drinkers singing oom pah songs and munching roasted chicken and pretzels.
just a thought,
