3.4/5  rDev -6.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Reviewed from notes.

Pours out a coppery amber color with good clarity and two fingers of off-white foamy head that lasts for about three minutes, leaving some light amounts of lacing behind on the glass. Medium-light body and carbonation levels.

Unusually light nose, faint blend of nuts and caramel. The flavor is also relatively restrained (as is the ABV content) with some medium-light caramel sweetness combined with nuttiness and the typical marzen light herbal-earth-spice hopping combo. This is pretty much just a by-the-books marzen that is noteworthy for hiding a slightly higher than typical ABV content, and an unfortunately somewhat muted nose.

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.
