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.

I find myself trying every Oktoberfest and pumpkin flavored beer I can get me hands on, this one was pretty good! I am a easy going critic as I enjoy just about every beer I've had so... saying that, I still feel there was something missing here. I wish I could place it with words but don't yet have the beer vocabulary to do so. Overall very drinkable though!
