A- Deep orangish amber, typical Marzen color. Clear but weak head.
S- Mildly hoppy with some spice and fruit sweetness.
T&M- Very chewy with caramel and toasty malts. Alcohol is present as well as some fruit sweetness. Pretty balanced as the hops bite in when the malt gets to be too much and both fade together to give it smooth finsh with only a slight aftertaste of caramel malt. Good body
D- Not bad but not ground breaking either. I have had better versions locally than this and I still would prefer some of the Munich versions as well. They keep tweeking this and they are gradually removing the over-sweet character every try but haven't gotten it just right yet. It also seems to get more avergae every year too. Give it a shot but I didn't have more than two before I switched to something else.
Serving type: on-tap
