12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.
A - Rich red-orange with a thin, light tan head that quickly dissipates into a creamy lace.
S - Bready, dough-like malt with floral and spicy hop aromas.
T - Well-rounded on the palate, with bready, toasty malt making a strong initial showing. Rich malt character shines through and through, but around the middle it's joined by lemon zest, grass, and leafy noble hop flavors and a refreshing hop bite. Bitterness never steals the spotlight from the malt, but does offer a nice counterpoint and maintains a good balance.
M - Light to medium body, on the lighter end for the style - with crisp, perky carbonation.
D - A tad light and hoppy, but over all a good, thirst-quenching Marzen. A great choice for novices and seasoned beer-lovers alike, and among the best I've had from Sam Adams.
