Not a traditional Marzen but coming from Surly I'm not surprised. Less malt, more rye and a clean finish make this closer to a really good rye ale. Recommended.

22oz on-tap at fire lake

Dark amver with minimal head. Smells like sweet malt and pine. Taste is much the same: this is a very hoppy oktoberfest. Bitter finish with oak and wood flavors adding to the malt and hop flavors.

Another great extra hopped surly beer
