Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tall New Glarus Signature Pilsner Glass.
Appearance: Pours a clear copper golden orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. Solid two fingers of off white head which slowly fad into a thin patchy layer. Leaves a decent amount of lacing.
Smell: A toasty malt driven aroma with hints of caramel and subtle fruit. Upfront toasted barley malts with hints of caramel, biscuit, grains, toast, toffee, cracker, straw, and German yeast. Subtle fruity hints of apples. Light honey like sweet scent. Some earthy hop hints with some grass. A very nicely bready and clean aroma.
Taste: Like the aroma, a nice clean, bready, and biscuity malt driven taste with notes of fruit and hops. Bready toasted malts throughout with notes of biscuit, caramel, grains, straw, cracker, toffee, toast, and German yeast. Fruity undertones of apple. Slight honey like sweetness. Background notes of earthy and grassy hops. A pretty solid Marzen taste.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a medium to high level of carbonation. Very crisp, clean, and smooth.
Overall: A pretty solid take on a Marzen. Good biscuity malt notes with some nice undertones.
Serving type: bottle
