On tap at Gourmet Haus Staudt. Clear and golden with a slight amber tint, this is pale for a marzen. Head retention is weak, but it looks solid otherwise. The nose is mild and malty, reminiscent of amber honey, apricots and fresh bread. There's the slightest hint of sulfur beneath. Pleasantly malty and clean on the tongue, honey and lightly toasted bread with a touch of stonefruit sweetness. Light bodied, dry and crisp finish with a mild grassy hop bitterness. Good, but not particularly special for the style.

Little white head, yellow color. Like a a yellow cloud.

Smells very bready, malty goodness. Like the pilsbury doughgirl in heat...

tastes of sugary malty goodness, like sugar smacks with hops and alcohol.

Smack, smack, sugar smacks, give me a smack and i'll smack you back.

Good beer ya.
