This is what you want from a fest beer.

L: Pours a nice crisp amber color with a good amount of head to it. Some notable carbonation and a murky unfiltered look.

S: Toasted Malts and grains with a slight hit of a vague sweetness. Almost citrusy but not quite. Has the same sort of aroma as a belgian.

T: Great sweetness up front without too much carbonation or hoppiness to it. Really nice buttery, fruity, sweet taste to it. Could definitely see this as a sessionable brew due to that. Tastes much like a belgian tripel without the high alcohol content.

F: Moderate carbonation, nice and light.

O: A really solid Märzen. No question. If you are undecided on a fest beer and are looking for an authentic feeling and tasting beer then this is a definite one to check out.

A fine example of a fest beer. Pours a hazy/murky amber with thick beaded bubbles that dies down quickly to a big bubbled light foam with light clinging to the glass. Bready aromas and caramel malt on the nose. Light low carbonated mouthfeel with caramel malts and fresh bread up front and very VERY light bittering hops in the background. True to the style and VERY nice indeed. Cheers.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance:
Pours a surprisingly dark brown color with a slight orange tint with a thin, off-white head. Very murky body with fine sediment and light carbonation.

Aroma:
Clean but thick malty caramel. Fresh bread with light toffee notes and even lighter citrus notes.

Taste:
The phrase "liquid bread" has never rung truer than it does with this beer. Rich caramel and a heavy nuttiness dominate the sweet flavor profile but with an unfinished quality... It reminds me of a sample of wort, fresh off the stove and ready for fermentation to begin. Malt seems a bit burnt. An earthy bitterness hits at the end.

Mouthfeel:
The thick body will slow your sipping as this is one heavy beer. It's very filling! Carbonation is nearly impossible to detect. Sweet, sweet finish.

Overall:
A fantastic example of the style. This is a meal in a glass, so prepare to sip it slow. I highly recommend this one to anyone who likes their beer malty and a bit on the sweet side.

On tap at Kickbacks in Jax. Poured into a snifter. White head, moderate retention, soapy lacing, light, clear copper body. Aroma includes a caramel malt sweetness, light bitterness and a nice classic German marzen crispness. Taste follows suit, with a nice nutty, chestnut flavor. Very easy to drink, quite flavorful.
