Clear copper colored beer with a medium sized white head.

Smells of toasted grain and caramel with a herbal and grassy hop aroma.

Starts out mildly sweet with flavors of toasted grain and caramel. Herbal and grassy hops with a slight lemon taste. Slight flavor of burnt sugar. Yep it tastes like a Märzen.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall a decent Märzen. Not the best of its kind but I wouldn't refuse one.
