Bottled 4/26/18; drank 8/22/18 @ the Yarchives.

See-through amber appearance.

An even pour yielded a small off-white head; minimal tree-rung lace.

Caramel & wheat notes in the nose.

Medium thick, sticky mouthfeel.

Carmel & wheat flavors up front; mild clove notes & a faint hop bite on the finish.

A bit sweet for me, but a flavorful treat. One is more than enough for me though...

Poured from 500ml bottle into glass. Date stamp on label is 'L8108'.
Clear, pale amber colored body. Lots of fluffy white head, which settles to thick cap. Leaves behind some scattered spots and strings of lacing.
Malty aroma, with spicy hops.
Heavy malts in the taste, along with hops. A balance of bread and spices.
Medium to full mouth feel. Good carbonation.
A beer with total German character. Open for big gulps of flavor and texture. Rich and expressive for the fall festival, made for celebration, song, and food made to soak up the flavors of the beer.

12 oz bottle. Pours anamber with a small tan colored head. Malty aroma with caramel notes. Sweet flavor with cereal and biscuit notes. Medium bodied and pretty well balanced.

Very impressive marzen beer here folks. This is one of the best German lagers around. This is one of those beers that I often look forward to drinking when the fall season comes around. its malty sweet, bready, a little honey, a little molasses. Cheers! A-

Hands down my favorite marzen. Hops are on point, malts are bold yet refined. Toast, spicy noble hops, I can picture myself in Germany consuming these by the litre.
