The beer when i poured it into a pint glass, it has a nice amber color body with not a lot of head that thins down to a thin lace. The smell is of carmel and malty. The malt hits you up front, first thing i taste. Then some earthy hops comes along, but not strong. The mouth feel is nice and crisp. Overall this is a average marzen.

L: Clear dark amber, minimal lace, and sufficient carbonation
S: Sweet plum and raisin
T: The best Marzen yet for me. Sweet malts, light plum and raisin again. Aftertaste is slightly over powered.
F: The only Marzen i've had that's totally smooth and has no sharp bite finish or overly sugared

Overall: I prefer Wiesn over Marzen but this has the soft and smooth mouthfeel of a good Wiesn.
