4.05/5  rDev +11.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Beautiful sunny Autumn day here in St. Paul had me thinking Oktoberfest. Poured into Sleeping Giant Brewing Co. pint glass.

Nice amber orange color with a solid white head. Retention is not great. Smell is sweet caramel malt with a little lager yeast and cooked vegetable. Not much hop presence in the nose. Flavor is quite sweet and malty. Lots of caramel and breadyness along with some alcohol spicyness. Just enough hop to give a slight bitterness to the finish. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied and a little sticky with light carbonation.

While there are plenty of other marzens around that are more authentic versions of the style, I love the heavy malt and sweetness in this one. A fall favorite for me and one of Summit's best.

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.
