3.53/5  rDev -3.8%
look: 2 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: pours a clear copper with two fingers of beige head that almost completely vanishes with no lacing.

S: Munich and pilsner malt aromas up front with sweet biscuit, caramel, and citrus notes following.

T: Munich malt flavors here as well with bread, caramel, and slight citrus. The finish is clean and bready.

M: medium-light body with medium carbonation, this beer is light and dry, though could use a bit more carbonation.

O: a solid Marzen overall. I'd like a bit more carbonation and depth of flavor, but it's still tasty and clean.
