A very light golden orange. Aroma is a little malty and metalic. Taste is malty with a metalic eruo flavor. I am surprised an Octoberfest from Germany is so thin in taste. Not much stands out.
However this one is a very easy drinker. Its very smooth and thirst quenching. Just not a great example.

Poured a copper like, reddish orange with a decent head that quickly dissipated, then simply disappeared to a ring around the glass. Nose is sweet caramel malt with just a little resiny hoppiness
lingering about.

Flavor comes sweet right away, caramel, malty hits at the front, with a fair amount of hoppy astringency, that hangs around on the back of the tongue.

This isn't the best Marzen I've ever had, but it is the first one I buy every year, then measure the rest against it. Would love to try it before it made the trip over.
