This may be last year's brew. Yeah, Nov 2013. Hope the formula hasnt changed so this is accurate.

I love spending time with my friend Tony. He's always got some good brews each time I come to his house, not to mention his kegerator.

Serving style : 12 oz bottle poured into pilsner glass

Appearance (3.5) : Nice four finger carbonated off-white head that recedes quickly. Bubbles line the glass and the body is a transparent festive orange-copper glow. Licks of lacing here and there line the glass.

Smell (4) : Pumpkin spice, nutmeg, honey, hint of ginger, cinnamon, clean water. Pumpkin flesh. A very fresh smelling Marzen. I like it.

Taste (3.25) : some maple syrup, pumpkin, ginger, orange peel, festive spice. What follows is a malt liquor taste that's hard to get rid of. Very distracting. The flavors are right though, and it's easy drinking despite the malt liquor finish.

Mouthfeel (3) : Slippery, wet, flat. A little carbonation but hits the palate like a day old soda. Ends slightly crispy.

Overall (3.17) : it's a toss up if I'd ever buy a six pack of this beer. I don't think it's bad, but it's not very good. There are better Marzens out there, friends, but this is still worth a try.
