This is my favorite beer. Malty, slight sweet, caramel taste, no hop bitterness, and very smooth finish. It is a crime that this beer is only available 2-3 months out of the year.

Poured from bottle into pint glass. Poured a nice, clear, dark caramel color with nice cream colored head. Sweet malts and caramel on the nose. Expected sweet, malty flavor in the taste. One of my favorite Marzen style brews that I finally got a wild hair to review and always a refreshing treat to start the fall. Was thrilled to find one left over in the rear of the beer fridge.

Dark copper beer with a rapidly fading head. Taste is bready, caramel malts and some sweetness. Overall a good beer but there are better beers of this style out there.

Look: Clear mahogany, creamy light brown head
Smell: weak caramel, lightly toasted malt
Taste: Follows nose. Light and unimposing. Sweet with no discernible hop presence.
Feel: Light body and carbonation. A bit watery

It's okay—not bad but nothing too impressive. It's got the basic flavors of the style but everything just seems underdeveloped.
