I should probably start off this review buly apologizing that this bottle is from last year and has unintentionally spent a year in my fridge. It pours clear copper with a white head composed of big bubbly froth. Some patchy lace sticks to the glass.

The smell is sweet of toffee and caramel malt that is a little bready towards the back. Overall a clean nose on this and still smells fresh and malty.

The tastes opens with l bready grain and light citrus fruit and a touch of minerals. A hint of buttery diacetly is noted across the finish.

This is light bodied, crisp and modestly carbonated. A crushable brew by marzen standards, I could/would drink a bunch of this if it was accessible to me in season.

Brilliant amber color, with a frothy cream head that slowly dissipates. Aroma is dominated by floral and earthy noble hops, which fade to a toasted, bready malt character. Flavor reveals specialty malt fruitiness initially, which is countered by bready, nutty malt in the lightly dry finish. Very sessionable beer. The fruitiness is a bit more than I'd prefer in the style.
