L: light Amber, no head
S: roasted grain
T: Very Balanced roasted grain with slight malt sweetness that is barely there. Hops balance it but don't stand out in any way. Lingering roasted grain flavor that fades quickly
F: Tiny bubbles that soft carbonation that reminds me of their Hefe. Very Smooth. Drys my palate just enough to want another sip
O: This would be easy to have several. A very good example of the style even if it is not my favorite one. This is neck and neck with the Paulaner marzen. Honestly couldn't go wrong with this one.

From cervezasespeciales. In Bavaria glass. Watching Los Soprano 4x02. Deliciously malty, sweet with a good bite of hops to compensate and a superb drinkability. My new prefered marzen

Look: It pours clear with a copper color and an off white moderate head.

Smell: It has caramel aromas with low fruit and some sweetness to it.

Taste: There are sweet flavors, but not overly. There is a slight plum-like flavoring to it with the caramel and a hint of cherry.

Feel: It has a moderate body with low bitterness and a clean finish.

Overall, this is one of the better Marzen’s that I have had with a clear flavor with a malt forward flavor and well done hop compliments.

Clear golden amber with active carbonation. 3/4 inch bubbly, creamy-white head, receding somewhat slowly leaving thick lacing that slides down the glass just behind the receding head. Fairly strong aroma of bread, herbal and floral. Good feel, decent carbonation on the tongue, not at all thin. Initial taste follows the aroma with a bit of bittering to start. A mild middle with lots of complexity in the flavor. Finish is moderately clean with just enough bittering to balance the malts.
