Pours a clear copper color, visible carbonation, and a moderate bubbly head that soon dissipates.
Aromas of toasted and caramelized malts, dark bread and biscuits. There is a fleeting burst of bright citrusy hops aroma and, throughout, a subdued grassy spice.
Flavors of amber malts, dark bread crusts, toasted malts and toffee. Moderate sweetness balanced by gentle hops bitterness and a grassy and peppery spice in the middle palate. The finish is dry, mostly clean and with a citrus pith linger.
Medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Smooth drinking and balanced.
A nice example of the style.

From a crowler filled at the brewery a few days ago.

Pours near clear, bronzed amber, carbonation on the low side, so just a very moderate head raised and quickly departing, next to no lacing...likely this lack of head is due to the crowler process...giving the benefit of the doubt to the brewery...

Nutty, malty nose

Pleasant enough Oktoberfest, malty sweetness, with maple and vanilla flying their flags....decent stuff...I'd like to try this at the brewery

A: Bright amber maple w/some ruby highlights, slightly hazy. Fluffy finger and half off-white head.

S: Grassy hop smell atop lots of sweet toffee.

M: Sharp, crisp, and biting, and hard for palate to recover to taste sweet malts. Cleaner as it warms. Low-mod carbonation. Not very soft, mellow, and even has a little astringency on finish.

T/O: It has significant hop flavor for a marzen. Slight bitter herbal tones and quite spicy, peppery. Musky grapefruit and dried grass, very toasty. Musky grapefruit and darker fruits did end up complimenting the toffee sweetness from malts. Samples stronger than the ABV suggests. The most complex marzen I've had w/o question.
