Served into a mug.

A - A crystal-like rubyhue with a thin ivory head. Below average retention and lacing.

S - Strong toasted malts, light spices and grain. Nothing here to love.

T - Malts, sugar, light spices and a bit of juiciness. The taste is acceptable, but nothing makes me want to rush out and grab another.

M - Well carbonation with a nice medium body. Best part of the beer.

O - It is far from awful, yet there are just too many Marzen's that are way better. I remember loving this beer in my under-aged youth. Time has elapsed and my palette now says otherwise.
