A- Classic amber copper color. Clear as day. Small head on a vigorous pour.

S- Smells decent. The mild aroma just kind of speaks to the lager though really. A sweet spicy aroma.

T- Taste is very different for an o-fest. It has a bit of a smoke flavor to it. I find it to be interesting for this brew.

M- A little chewy. But pretty nice.

O- It's just a big beer. I enjoyed it well enough. Pretty good beer

I poured this one into a perfect pint, it has a nice golden brown body with not a lot of head that quicky lays down to a thin lace. The smell is inviting of carmel and malt and some hops with a hint of clove. The taste is well balanced, taste of sweet malt up front then the spicy bitter hops comes through in the finish. The mouth feel is great, smooth and creamy and well carbonated. Overall this is a great beer, defintly the best marzen i have had so far.
