A: pours a clear copper/amber color into a DFH signature glass with a half a finger of tan head that dissipates slowly and leaves no lacing.
S: sweet, light roasted malt, bread, a bit of spice, nutmeg and some citrus.
T: sweet malt is the biggest flavor with some great yeasty notes. Brown sugar and some nice light spices push there way through the huge amount of malt. Dark fruits like figs, dates and plums shine through. Mellow citrus hangs on the back of the tongue.
MF: medium body, slightly chewy, moderate effervescence.
O: a very good marzen beer, in my top three! Beautiful flavors and aromas have mingled to make a beautifully balanced beer.
Serving type: bottle
