Poured clear amber into a SA glass. Decent one finger head, dissipated a little too quickly, some lacing

Malty aroma, with a little toffee

Taste was mostly malt, with a little caramel and some pear like fruit in back

Mouthfeel was on the full side of medium, appropriate carbonation.

This is a very good fest beer, very suitable for the typical food pairings. I am usually under impressed with American Marzens, so this is a worthy choice for the season. I also like that Sam Adams BBC release it on an appropriate schedule
