look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A- Clear copper with a 3-4 finger, foamy head. Pretty good lacing after the head disappeared.

S- Very malty, with a hint of sweet. Not very strong, but an ok level of complexity. Some hops at the end of the nose.

T- Was kind of disappointed here. The appearance had me excited. Mostly caramel malts. Some dull bready/biscuity flavor, followed by slight hop bitterness. The hops end it nicely, but do not stand up to a lot on their own.

M- Like every Leinie's, it's kind of watery. Lots of carbonation, which actually kind of helps the weight.

Nothing special. It's your typical Leinie's middle of the road brew. I'd choose it over a lot of BMC's and other crafts that don't fit my style.

look: 2.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: A deep orange color with a few fingers of tan head and lace. The head disappeared quick but the lace stuck around.

Smell: Biscuity with some tones of caramel and hops.

Taste: The taste is very biscuit like with some caramel, sour fruit and citrus in the finish.

Mouthfeel: This would be on the medium for me. There is a bit of bite.

Overall: Not my favorite Marzen by far but it will work in a pinch.
