One of the better marzens I've tried. Pours a darker orange brown. Spicy hops and a slightly sweet maltiness dominate. A good beer that perfectly rides the line between being an easy drinking oktoberfest and actually having good flavor and depth. A+ would buy again.

Deep golden color with mediocre head and lacing. Aromas of sweet malt. Taste is light with some hop bitterness and bready, sweet malts. Balance is decent, but overall, beer is a little on the light side

A- Deep Amber with orange hues, light tan head that dissipates quickly
S- Sweet malts & caramel, bready, touch of earthy hops
T- follows the nose, malty with light caramel upfront with touch of bitterness from the hops that linger for a bit
M- light/medium body with moderate carbonation
O- Pretty nice for the style and balanced, enjoyed and would get again over other Oktoberfest.
