12 oz bottle, 5.8% with a indecipherable date, poured into a tulip glass, a dark ruby with orange and brown highlights and a two finger fluffy white head. Decent retention. The aroma is toasted grains, mild floral-ness and almonds. The taste mixes in some vanilla, but stays close to the nose. The feel is medium, with a medium amount of carbonation. Overall, a well done Marzen, and one that I hope I can still find in a month or so when fall rolls in .

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
