Looks and smells like the type of O'fests I DIG! Nose highlights the classic Munich malt profile giving off toffee/caramel sweetness with a touch of herbal hop pop. Flavor is dead on in my book. Munich malts flavors really shine. Toasted malts with caramel sweetness, nice herbal/grassy hop bitterness...the combo makes it very tea-like, nothing over the top....and ends with a nutty finish. Great balance. Clean. Great offering of the style.

DATE TASTED: September 7, 2014... GLASSWARE: Saranac willibecker...OCCASION: PSU-Akron--too close for comfort... APPEARANCE: beautiful copper brown body; teeming with miniature bubbles; creamy off-white head--looks great before it label... AROMA: lush, creamy malts--hazelnut, fresh bread and sweet mats make for a welcome invitation... PALATE: medium-bodied and meaningful, substantial as it vacates the mouth; properly scaled with a nicely timed aftertaste...TASTE: intense caramel ad sweet malts overwhelm with flavor; hops are subtle; as fall as it gets!...OVERALL: true to form, Lancaster delivers on a sweet, crisp football pairing--as per the style, reasonably big and malty but sessionable...alcohol is balanced and patient...distinguishable from other marzens? not so sure...
