Pours a deep red colour that thins at the edge. Big head that is too big from the way it was poured. Slight reddish tinge to the head, nice speckled lace. Decent Marzen look.

Rich malty aroma, lots of caramel but it dips into the diacetyl realm. Touch of some metallic, bitter hop that is earthy and organic, slightly astringent. Plenty of the expected, rich Marzen aroma but it goes overboard.

Taste is quite buttery as well, more diacetyl. Thin midway, with overly sweet malt notes, finishes quite creamy with a slightly thin caramel flavour. Again has plenty of that Marzen character but feels residually sweet and a bit thin.

Creamy mouthfeel, not bad but leaves quite fizzy and harsh. Bit thin, but a decent enough lager body.

Would have liked a bit more to this, but it is really very drinkable and does have mostly the right flavours.

Slightly cloudy biscuit brown colour. Reasonable filmy head. Good lacing. Looks good.

Slightly vinous on the nose, even a bit vinegary, but this levels out after a while to just a sweet slightly biscuity character.

Bit of sweetness on the front palate with just a suggestion of pepper, and a slight sour character which might not be meant to be there. Biscuity dry character on the back palate. It's pretty dry, but not bad at all. Mouthfeel quite good, lightens it.

This is a decent beer overall. Very pleasant. Not wowing, but solid and pleasant.
