Marzen beers are maltier beers, my palate has become adapted to resinous hops this summer and it will be an adjustment of the palate. I have not been a fan of Great Lakes in the past because I felt like they put too much malt in their supposedly hoppier beers. On the contrary this beer is designed to be a maltier beer. Classical Marzen in that respect. This is a very nice representation of the style. I am not sure it is worth the 100 rating that BA gives it but it is a tasty brew. I look forward to trying more of this style this fall and comparing them to this one, which apparently is seen as one of, if not the best Oktoberfest beer produced in the US.

Yet another great brew from Great Lakes. Beer pours a medium amber with thin white head
a decent clinging lacing on the glass. Nose of caramel, toffee, and medium roasted goodness.
Taste is a perfect session brew with malts up front and on the back with a nice caramel malt
profile and very subtle hop characteristic to give it a zip in balance towards a fantastic smooth
mouthfeel and buttery finish. A most excellent aftertaste with high drinkability.
