More orange, less sweet, more spicy, longer lasting head than most Märzens I've had lately. Poured into smooth-sided 15 oz stein, a transparent, but lucid burnt orange. Not very aromatic, faint caramel in with the malt. Pleasant carbonation. Thirst-quenching. Comparatively clean finish.

3/7/15 (Bottle) - Caramel colour pour with minimal white head. Negligible carbonation. Smelled of sugar, caramel and hops. Sweet tasting beer, with a trace of caramel. Thin texture, light body.
