On tap at Oak Bottoms today.

The beer pours the prototypical marzen orange amber color with good head retetion and lacing. The beer has the expected roasty sweet malt aroma, but with some underlying citrus and earth. Flavors generally replicate the nose, though I confess this is one of the richer domestic marzens I've tried. The wet hop addition adds to the complexity, but really doesn't add much more then a hint of additional complexity. This beer is quite drinkable, and I'm assuming the abv. is in the 6% range.

A very nice beer, and I think it a good idea to add some fresh hops to this prototypical Oktoberfest marzen. It's nothing out of this world, but it's still a very solid beer.
