Appearance: dark copper color with little head. Drinking from flight. Smell: toasted caramel notes with a hint of earthy tone. Taste: very malt forward wil hints of caramel in the middle and ends with some floral tones. Overall: I'm impressed. This is a decent beer

A standard dark orange pour with a good amount of cream colored head. Surprising amount of lacing. Malt, grass aromas with some slight citrus and pine. Very nice malt flavors, caramel/toffee. A little bit of red fruit and hops through the finish. Almost medium bodied and fairly lively in the mouth. I would have to agree with the previous review that this is not exactly standard for the style in that it has stronger malt and carmelly sweetness. I think that is what makes this better than your typical Octoberfest.

A: A vigorous pour from a growler into an imperial pint glass yielded a good inch of head. The plastic seal around the cap did a good job keeping the carbonation in! The beer has the classic deep copper color of the style.

S: Rich malty aroma up front with strong caramel notes. Bold aromas of toasted grains are also evident.

T: A hefty dose of caramel malt gives this lager some ale-like characteristics... some residual sweetness and a hint of ester-y flavors.

M: Feels more like an ale fermented at low temperatures than a lager. Nice rich feel on the tongue with none of the dryness normally found in lagers.

D: this is a somewhat atypical marzen, but I'm thoroughly enjoying it.
