I continually find this Märzen to be drinkable year-in and year-out despite the surprisingly high 7.1% ABV (as per Summit's website).

It pours a gorgeous and clear pumpkin orange with a creme colored head.
The smell is a little weak, but not many Oktoberfest beers come out swinging in the olfactory department.
The taste carries a bit more staying power than the smell, but I may have once again drank this a touch too chilly. As the beer warms, the caramel malt comes out of hiding, and is a truly enjoyable taste as a hint of fall begins to be felt in the air.
With the high ABV comes a decided mouthfeel. It doesn't wimp out, and it almost gives the beer more character -- just being a bit thicker.

I really like this beer. After landing in MN. This was in the fridge at the hotel. Great taste, no linger, easy to drink. Marzen style drinkers will like this beer. A little on the front end that I don't care for, but that fades pretty rapidly. Label could use an upgrade, looks like a production beer.
