From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #69 (October 2012):

Obvious boasts about the German Purity Law, not that it hold much weight these days being globally that is not a standard of a good beer anymore. What we have here is a well brewed but perhaps beat up version of a Märzen. Our educated guesstimate is that this beer is pasteurized and is substantially better right from the source. Decent but not something we’d be looking to fill a liter mug with.

STYLE: Märzen
ABV: 5.0%
AVAILABILITY: Fall seasonal

LOOK: Bright, pale amber, sturdy suds

SMELL: Toasted bread, walnut pith, grape skin, floral hop, mild spice, mineral

TASTE: Moderate sized body, bread crust, mild spice, dried grass, vegtal, herbal, lightly metallic, husky, faint cooked cereal, dry grainy finish

Sampling right now on 5/5/14. Comes in a nice 330ml (11.2 ounce) bottle for $1.79. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a tulip glass.

Pours a copper-amber in color with almost a finger off-white head. A good amount of lacing was seen as is typical for a good German beer. The aroma is of some yeast and grains. The taste is so much better than expected and very smooth to drink unlike many of the 'Marzen / Oktoberfest' style brews. Goes down very easy with no bitter or harsh aftertaste at all. Perfect carbonation. Overall, a great German brew!

Presentation: Really good looking foil label that is very eye-catching. Label gives a bit of brewery info, web info, States “Brewed according to the “German Purity Law””. 11.2oz. Neck label is also very decorative.

Appearance: Warmed for 10min before aggressively pouring form 11.2oz green bottle into a 16oz English pint. Pours out very clear golden copper color with a 3 finger white airy foam head. Head retention was 4min 48sec before slowly fading to a thick foam coating and ring. Excellent lacing.

Smell/Aroma: Smells of bready malts with an earthy slightly floral hop accent.

Flavor/Taste: Tastes of bready yeasty malts on the front end with a nice earthy slightly floral hop bite at the midpoint that turns bready on the finish with a slight grain aftertaste.

MouthFeel/Drinkability: On the light side of medium bodied with a fair amount of carbonation. Easy drinking.

Overall/Comments: Overall a fairly unspectacular offering that is very respectable and very drinkable. I enjoyed this. Classified as a Marzen/Oktoberfest @ 5% ABV. Consumed 4/28/2013.
