First had: ? (have had on tap and in bottles)

A nice crack at a märzen by SA. Pours a golden orange color, very carbonated, with a delicate layer of bubbles for a head that doesn't linger long. Basic grainy, malty aroma, with a touch of sweetness. Mild, toasted bread taste, a bit nutty, caramel sweetness, but not too much, with some floral notes coming through. A bit of apples and oranges, finishing with a crisp hop bite. Light-meduim mouthfeel, pretty dry, and quite drinkable.
