12oz bottle poured into a Seidel.
A - Medium sized cap of off-white head falls to a ring around the glass. Color is on the dark end of the guidelines; dark amber. Perfect clarity but no lacing.
S - Layered toasted malt grazes the spectrum of caramel. Robust with some sweetness. Clean fermentation.
T - Very dense/rich toasty malt right up front and well into the taste. Shows a short glimpse of sweetness. Spicy hop flavor meshes with a breath of alcohol at the finish. Bitterness is moderate and balances well.
M - Medium body, medium to medium-light carbonation, short and sweet in the middle yet dry finish.
O - Solid interpretation. Good looking beer, great fresh and rich flavor. Aroma seemed to be a little too heavy on crystal malt. The heftiness is appreciated because some Marzens undershoot for drinkability sake. Alcohol continues to creep into the aftertaste more and more as temperature rises.
Judgement - Try

12oz Bottle received in trade with cfrancis
Appearance - Clear copper colour with an average size off-white coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some decent lacing. The head lasted for around 3-4 minutes before it was gone.
Smell - Malts, hops, caramel, hay/straw/grass
Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, caramel, and light hops. There is also some tea, straw/hay and a grassiness.
Overall - Not my favourite style, but a pretty decent effort. Not something I'd seek out again, but worth a try.
