Its appearance was a dark orange/ amber. 2 finger creamy, pillowy head. Clear, carbonated.

Aroma: Bready yeast, malt, maybe pilsner hops or German hops. Nice "beer" smell.

Taste: Crisp & clean. Malts are present. Some hops are present as well, although very subtle.

Mouth feel: light, crisp, bubbly, a little twang from the hops but not enough to disrupt the Marzen style. Aftertaste is of bread.

Overall, this beer is light & crisp. Not as full bodied as Sam Adams or Ayinger Octoberfest beer but it'll suffice. It's a nice "drinking" beer in that you can easily knock back 3 bottles while with friends.
My recommendation; pick it up if you come across it but don't expect to be knocked off your socks with this one. As stated earlier, it's just a nice beer for drinking with the fellas not one to be enjoyed as a session beer.
