look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured into a sam adams custom glass, color is amber, transparent; head is light tan, frothy, dense, presenting 1/2" thick followed by some lacing and lingering.

Smell is somewhat subdued, which is not out of place, pleasant malt and some light caramel or chocolate sweet scents are noted but very subtle.

Taste is very good, solid malt profile, light clean vienna or munich malts with hints of chocolate and caramel, light toast and some biscuit; hop flavors are not strong, maybe some light earth and grass; lightly acidic in its finish.

mouthfeel is clean, hitting the tongue mainly, acidic finish lingers, malt sweetness is nice, carbonation is not overdone.

Overall, this is a very, very good american marzen, clean flavors, good mouthfeel.

A 355ml bottle with a BB of Jan 2011, so this is totally out of date. Acquired a while back from a webshop, though it would have been out of date even then. Curse them and their scaly hides! As I probably won't see this again I'll review with caveats.

Poured into a straight pint glass. Bottle conditioned. A deep coppery-amber hue with fine sediment and light carbonation. Yields a decent head of creamy off-white foam that lasts for a few minutes before subsiding. Aroma of mildly sour, earthy yeast with hints of caramel malt, grain and faint stewed leaves. A touch of cardboard and sherry in the background - this smells rather oxidised.

Tastes of stale, acidic yeast and caramel malt, with a dry finish. Notes of grain, caramel, husks, earthy yeast, mild natural yoghurt, faint stewed leaves and cardboard. Rather oxidised, accompanied by a whisper of sherry. Well-attenuated and mildly bitter upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is smooth, dry and tingly, with subtle carbonation and good body for the style. Slightly astringent, followed by an aftertaste of sour yeast, caramel and cardboard/stewed leaves.

OK - being out of date this is obviously not on top form. However, the underlying character is discernible and seems pretty good. Stripping away the mild acidity and oxidation reveals hints of a quality märzen with a rounded flavour. Looks alright and the body seems decent. If I ever have the chance to grab a fresh one then I'll revisit this review.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a reddish-mahogany color with tiny off white head. The head fades almost instantly leaving almost no lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The smell is sweet of a brown caramel smell with a good deal of roasted malt mixed within. Some aromas of dark fruit mingle with the roasted and sugar smells as well as a bit of a spice and nut aroma to produce a rather nice marzen aroma.

Taste – The taste begins very mild with a bit of a caramel and darker fruit flavors as well as a bit of a bready taste and a very light roasted taste. As the flavor advances the sweetness gains a small amount of potency with more caramel coming to the tongue. While the sweetness only gains a light level of intensity the roasted gets quite a bit stronger with some lighter spice and nut flavors developing rather late. In the end a little bit of a yeasty and more sweetness of apple and caramel come to the tongue leaving a rather pleasant roasted and sweet flavor on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the lighter side with a carbonation level that is rather average. While the body is a bit thin, it does give the beer a bit more crispness which with the lighter flavors upfront create an easy drinking brew when combined with the average carbonation.

Overall – A rather tasty brew overall that has a decent flavor profile and a rather easy drinking feel.
