If I see a left hand beer I need it in both my right hand and left hand.

Best By 12/26/14. Bought about two months ago in a mixed six.

Eye-catching label graphic of an open-mouthed jungle cat.

Poured from the 12 oz. bottle into a Samuel Adams nonick.

a: Clear copper with a finger plus thick offwhite head which receded to thin surface foam and spotty lacing.

s: Bread crust.

t; Bready to caramel up front with some hop bite following. Finish is mostly dry. Light fruit notes develop later.

m: Medium with good body and some carbonation tingle.

o: A solid Marzen which I'm drinking a bit late for the season but which still works as a good dinner brew with fried scallops and baked potato.

BBD 12/4/14. Clear amber pour with a beautiful dark ruby cast. Normal head and retention, excellent lacing. Light nose of biscuit with caramel hints over a faint pear like citric note. Almost medium body with a distinct creamy texture. Heavier than most Oktoberfests, which is a plus. Above average carbonation with a nice effervescence throughout. The wonderful flavor profile is intense, complex and well balanced. It begins with a burst of biscuit against a caramel backbone that effervesces into a mild bitterness in the middle. The bitterness is herbal in nature (with a bit of rind), gives the tongue a nice tart pucker, then releases into pear notes. The finish is clean and leaves you with a mild bitterness over a faint biscuit sweetness that is somewhat dry. One of best!

This is a decent Marzen.....sweet balanced by maize malt base. The beer was a rich clear amber with thin head....that did not lace. Body was medium with decent carbonation. Overall...it was good.
