Golden amber in color. Poured in to a snfter and served with Taco Bell, of all things. It worked. Malty, wet bread, toffee in the nose and taste. Nice smooth mouthfeel. Overall a decent marzen.

Pours a soapy, off-white head that has nice persistence. Sweet malt and spicy hops aroma. Clear, copper color. Starts with a robust flavor; sweet malt and spicy hops. Builds into a medium grainy hoppiness. Finish is sweet malt and lingering hops.

Overall, not bad. It's a bit on the sweeter side than many, but it has a robust enough hoppiness to counteract that.
