Bottle poured into a mug
A- Frothy head? Check.
Nice lacing? Check.
Rich amber color? Ugh. This one poured a golden yellow with medium-high carbonation. It was a lot lighter than I expected to see.
S- Mostly bready aroma with some hops in the background. Missing were the malty scents I associate with a Marzen.
T- More bread/cracker flavor with some hop components. More of a pilsner taste than Oktoberfestbier.
M- Some tingle from the carbonation and a soft head.
D- Very drinkable.
Overall- IMHO this makes for a great pilsner, but it seems a bit mislabled as a Marzen. This seems close to the style of beer that tends to be served in the Oktoberfest tents, but I was expecting a more traditional Marzen when I bought it.

Another beer I'm shocked I haven't gotten around to reviewing.
On tap at The Seehund. Pours a translucent light amber color with an inch of head. Lots of lacing. The aroma is malty with some honey, sweet bread, caramel and floral hop notes. The taste is floral hops followed by the malts. Caramel and honey towards the end with a bit of floral hops. Medium bodied. Overall, great representation of the style.
