Poured from 12 oz bottle into lager glass.
Appearance was dark amber, almost like organic Apple juice. Carbonation bubbles were present and visible. 1 1/2 finger head that lasted for the better part of four minutes.

The aroma was of a typical Octoberfest beer; malt, German hops, bready yeast etc.

The taste however was a bit disappointing. It has a subtle metallic taste that's annoying. Roasted malts are present, so is the taste of the bready yeast. But then it's sort of flat from then on. It tasted like a flat version of Sam Adams Octoberfest beer.

Mouth feel was flat. Don't get me wrong, the carbonation bubbles were there prickling the tongue, but there was no "chew" to this beer.

There really isn't much to say about this beer other than it didn't do much for me. It had no character that made me want to buy it again. The flavor profile left a lot to be desired. There are much better Marzen style beers out there. You won't be missing much by skipping out on this one.

A: crystal clear; bronze colored; 1 finger pillowy khaki head that receded to a thin ring; a little lacing, but not much;

S: muted; a little sweet;

T: toffee, yeast, and malt; a little bitterness on the finish;

M: medium bodied - maybe a little thinner; moderate carbonation;

O: a little light on both aroma and flavor for me;

A- nice bone white head that didn't last too long. Minimal lacing. Clear, amber, copper.

S- clean, malty, bready.

T- bitter, spicy (ginger), caramel, malt.

M- medium to full body. Very crisp.

O- good, not great. Nothing offensive, but have had better Marzens. Worth a try, but wouldn't have again.
