3.85/5  rDev +4.9%

Appearance: Pours a dark translucent copper with about a finger of creamy tannish foam that reduces to a thin froth.

Aroma: You get a lot of malty aroma and a light floral fragrance.

Taste: Malty and lightly bitter with a semi-dry finish.

Mouth Feel: medium light to medium bodied with a creamy feel.

Overall: Marzen is not my favorite style as I prefer a bigger hop character but as a seasonal this is pretty good.
