3.16/5  rDev -15.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Appearance: Copper color with one finger of head that fades quickly to a ring with little lacing.

Aroma: Pretty clean; mostly toasted malt with a little tobacco in the background.

Taste: Big malt flavor upfront, then some mildly earthy hop bitterness starts to creep in and build towards the end. The finish is lingering and somewhat metallic and with a touch of tobacco.

The Rest: A decent, medium bodied Marzen, nothing spectacular, though.
