Pours a deep aged copper with a short-lasting hear. Ever so slight lacing. The aroma is mild but moderately complex, with nice caramel malt, a little fruit, and a bit of earth. Unfortunately once the head burns away, so does the aroma, leaving almost nothing. The taste is adequate, but not terribly interesting. It lacks both the robust malt or the counter-balancing hops. There's a decent weight to the body but a bit too much carbonation. Somewhere between OK and good.

Ok brew. Definitely my least favorite of all of the Flying Dog brews. Maybe I am not the biggest Marzen fan, but here goes....Pours dark gold, beautifully clear. Head is good and lacing is nice. Aroma is malty and so is the taste, malt sweetness and slightly crisp with only a slight aftertaste

Solid marzen. Coppery in color and in taste even. No odd notes. Medium body. Not quite session-y, but I'd have a few if you're buying.

01/02/13 On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Good solid beer. Balanced. Thirst quenching. A tad heavy for a session, but works well into a mix.

12 oz. bottle poured into a Flying Dog goblet

A: Pours a one finger head that goes away pretty rapidly. It is a muddled and hazy burnished copper.

S: Great light smell of ripening bananas with some nice esters and earthiness.

T: Nice even flavor, with a bit of sweetness. Tastes like it smells with some good ester and banana flavors in there.

M: Just a bit of carbonation.

O: Lots of Belgian flavors here, from the esters to the ripe bananas, but on all on a nice light even scale.
