$ 2.50 (Including tax)/500 mL can ($0.148/oz) from Costco, Schertz, TX. Part of the Costco 2019 Advent Calendar. Reviewed 11/02/19.
Can dated “EXP 05/2021”. Stored on the shelf at the store, stored at home at 42 degrees and served at 42 degrees in a hand washed and dried 0.5L stein.
Appearance – 4.
First pour – Gold, clear.
Body – Gold, clear.
Head – Large (Maximum 9 cm, aggressive center pour), off-white, high density, average retention, diminishing to a fifteen mm crown and a dense complete cap.
Lacing – Good. Wide three-dimensional bands of extremely tiny bubbles with short stalactites.
Aroma – 3.5 – Toasted malt.
Flavor – 3.5 – Begins slightly sweet with very light malt flavor. Very weak hops. Ends with a slight metallic taste, only noticeable on the first swallow; otherwise it ends a bit malty. No alcohol (5.3 % ABV as marked on the can) flavor or aroma, no diacetyl.
Palate – 3.5 – Medium, almost creamy, lively carbonation.
Final impression and summation: 3.5. A decent marzen, good looking and not bad in the taste or aroma departments either. I’ve had worse at a higher price point.

CAN:

Metallic, bready, thick. Pale malts. Finishes oversweet.

A lousy attempt at a Märzen. Attenuation is way off the mark.

Drinkable but unlikable. A rather bad German attempt at the style.

D+ / NOT RECOMMENDED

Appearance: Moderate light golden orange body, crowned by a small, dense, and persistent snow-white head. Thick, Belgian-style lacing adorns the glass walls. There are numerous streams of minute, fast-rising bubbles.

Aroma: Pronounced aroma of white bread, light caramel, and a slight spiciness. Modest floral hops present, as well.

Taste: Opens with moderately sweet notes of light caramel, and a mild herbal bitterness. As the taste progresses, the white bread and light caramel notes ascend, with a backdrop of mild bitterness. Finishes with a very mild, lingering herbal bitterness. There is a faint metallic note in the undercurrent of the taste, which lingers on, past its end.

Mouth feel: Full, and pleasant.

Drinkability/notes: A decent and drinkable example, worth a try.

Presentation: Packaged in a 500 ml, 16.9 ounce steel can, served in a standard Pilsener glass. Expiration date on the bottom of the can is 03/2019. Beer number seven (December 7th) from the 2017 Costco Advent Beer Calendar.

Day 7 Advent. 500mL can poured into a pint glass. Clear gold with active carbonation with a two finger fluffy white head. The aroma is not very present, Spaten light I think covers it. Pale malts and mild grains dominate the taste. Pretty straight ahead, not much depth or complexity. Carbonation is medium to medium low, with a slightly creamy then drying feel. Goes down fast.

Pours a slightly foggy straw with 2 fingers of head. Fair head retention with no lacing left behind. Aroma is wheat, yeast, and pale malts. Flavor profile is pale and biscuit malts, with wheat and yeast in the background. Mouth feel is medium, with a nondescript texture. Overall, a fine Marzen. It isn't overly constructed, just a simplistic brew.

Served in a 12oz shifter from a 16oz can.

From Costco. In Teku glass. Browsing Boxbeers. Nice and clean maltyness, with a great feel. crushable. Improves as warms up, dissapearing the odd notes im finding in this brewery's beers

Exp date 3/2019, out of the Costco Advent box. A crystal-clear golden color with a frothy and large bright white head. Great foam retention. Bready smell with some floral hops. Decent bready taste with some faint caramel. moderate bitterness with some floral tones but a bit muddled. Also a slightly metallic aftertaste. Overall a nice beer but not in the league of other well-known Marzens.
