Pours a pale golden color with a small fully diminishing head.

Smells totally like a pilsner not so much like the other octoberfest beers I've had this season like the Hacker Pshor or the Sam Adams...

Taste is pretty nice with the dry hoppiness of a pilsner. There's a bit of citrus and sweetness.

Thin bodied with moderate carbonation and good clarity.

Serving type - Bottle

A - Pours a slightly deeper than pilsner gold hue, with a white single-finger head that persists briefly, then fades to minimal lacing.

S - Smells like a maltier pilsner - Light, toasted caramel malts, slightly floral/grassy hop notes, and a slightly lemon character.

T - Taste is a bit unusual compared other Marzens I've had. This one is more like a German or Czech Pilsner, but a bit maltier. Good degree of balance between light, toasty, caramel malts, and a slightly citric, floral hop character. Pretty refreshing!

M - Light/Medium mouthfeel, moderate carbonation. Crisp, refreshing.

D - Between a lighter body, and a not too heavy flavor or alcohol profile, this one isn't taking me too long to drink. I could have several of these, no problem.

Overall - Not quite what I think of when I think of Marzen, but a pretty good, sessionable lager nonetheless.
