After a month of O-fests, fatigue is setting in. An average Marzen that does its job... but should try to experiment to differentiate itself.

Pours a dark amber/brown with a thin tan head. Nice aroma of toasted malt and noble hops that remind me of German Marzens. There is a bit of sweetness, but nothing like many American styles. Quite toasty with a clean caramel malt and earthy noble hops. The finish is crisp and dry with a medium feel. I'd put this just behind New Glarus Stahorn.

Big bread crust nose, brilliant orange-gold, 2” foam cap, a big dose of bread crust on the palate spreads across your mouth and then dries out. Excellent lace, no fruit, esters, etc. clean, smooth, malt driven, medium body, very drinkable, dry, linering malt finish, more bread crust than toast. Nice range of malt flavors, some spice from the hops but not a big hop presence.

Picked up a 4 pack of pounders of this bad boy at TW for a song probably because its past Oktober. Well that doesn't matter let's try Oktoberfest in March, as March is appropriate for a Marzen style, and give this brew a whirl. Popping the top I get a deep malty, like the center of malted milk ball, waft. Pours to a slightly cloudy deep yellow with a creamy head that recedes to a quarter inch. On the taste this brew has a very good malty backbone, nice biscuit flavors, not overly sweet for being mostly on the malty side. Mouthfeel is rich and smooth. Taste is consistent throughout with only a slight bitterness in the aftertaste. A great brew for the style, a sessioner without a doubt.
