Notes: It’s that time of year again!!! Bonfires, hiking trails, tailgating (maybe from your driveway). This is basically a german lager spin on Big Red— crisp, malt forward, with a thirst quenching finish.

A: The beer is clear but is dark coppery amber in color and has a light to moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that left a narrow collar around the edge and some delicate wisps of bubbles on the surface.
S: Moderate aromas of toasted malts are present in the nose with notes of caramel.
T: The taste follows the smell and has additional hints of brown sugar and caramel sweetness in the finish.
M: It feels medium-bodied, very clean and a bit smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I found the taste of this beer to be somewhat complex and sweetness was contributed by the toasted malts, caramel and brown sugar.

Single can from Siciliano’s Market in Grand Rapids, Mi. Suspect nearing the end of Octoberfest beer season but this one is amazing.
Pours a deep clear copper colour with creamy light beige head.
Aroma is bready, hints of molasses, and caramel malt, almost a touch smoky, nutty.
Tastes of smooth sweet caramel malt, brown sugar, again a hint of smokiness, some floral, earthy hops, with perfect balance of malty sweetness and a touch of hop bitterness.
Full malty sweet mouthfeel with active carbonation and a wonderful creaminess.
Absolutely great.

16 ounce can into dimpled mug, canned on 10/1/2019. Pours slightly hazy deep orange/copper color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and fluffy light khaki head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice dense spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of big brown sugar, brown bread dough/crust, and toasted biscuit; with lighter notes of caramel, nuttiness, wood, pepper, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of dark/bready malts and light earthy hop notes; with great strength. Taste of big brown sugar, brown bread dough/crust, and toasted biscuit; with lighter notes of caramel, nuttiness, wood, pepper, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness. Mild herbal, floral, woody, grassy, peppery bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of brown sugar, brown bread dough/crust, toasted biscuit, caramel, nuttiness, wood, pepper, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready malts and light earthy hop flavors; with an awesome malt/bitterness balance, and no cloying sweetness after the finish. Very clean on lager flavors, with minimal fruity/yeasty notes. Lightly increasing dryness from lingering bitterness. Medium carbonation and medium-plus body; with a very smooth, creamy/bready/grainy, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol for 6%. Overall this is an awesome Marzen. All around awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready malts and light earthy hop flavors; very smooth and easy to drink with the mildly bitter/drying finish; great soft feel for the style. Awesomely clean/rich dark/Munich malts; with solid noble hop presence/balance. Light residual sweetness with lingering dryness. A really enjoyable offering, impressively spot on style example as expected.
