Bought from Central Market in a fall sampler.
Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a laser-etched Sam Adams glass.
(Review from notes)

A - Clear amber, small and steady head.

S - Malty and sweet. Brown sugar.

T - Nice and malty, something a bit bitter or sour finishes.

M - Very light and drinkable. Somewhat syrupy aftertaste, however. Nice carbonation.

Summary - Nice. Not my favorite Marzen, but drinkable.
