12 oz beer was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: This beer poured a one finger head that reduced to a thin layer. It is a copper color with great clarity and bubbles coming up through the glass.

Smell: Bready and caramel malts. Pretty standard for a marzenbier. Nothing popping put at me.

Taste: Same as above with some mild bitterness in the end. Easy drinking.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, tingling bitterness, medium carbonation, light to medium bodied, and easy to drink.

Overall: Pretty nice take on the style. Traditional and easy to drink.

Into a globe.

A - Transparent amber hue with a 1-finger off-white head. Decent lacing with average retention.

S - Spices alongside caramel and roasted malts.

T - Toasted malts drench the palette. Caramel sweetness and spices come to light as the beer closes.

M - Thin medium body which is chewy for a Marzen. Lively carbonation lifts the malts into focus.

O - To me there is only so much one can do with this style. Heavy Seas has done a good job. It could be more robust with spices, yet it settles as an easy drinker that easily trumps the Samuel Adams I see on grocery store shelves.
