look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Amber color with a fluffy thin head with short retention.
Aroma with notes of bread crust, somewhat toasted malts, grassy hops and white grapes.
Flavor with notes of toasted malts, just some caramel-biscuit, white grapes, floral and herbal hops and a bit of spice. Dry aftertaste with a moderate bitterness but making sure it finishes non-sweet.
Light to medium body with good carbonation.
Well-blended and easy to drink Marzen with a subtle but nice hop complexity that does not predominate over the style malt layers.

Artwork looks like something from the cover of a Sammy Hagar-fronted supergroup from the early 2020's, a band called Tuna Arm, or something like that, with the dude from Slipknot on drums.

Lighter-colored pour, somewhere between an American and German marzen, filtered, with a small head.

Very, very light aroma. Like smelling a bag of pale DME. Just a hint of a sweetish aroma like it's the inside of a Whopper candy. No hops whatsoever. No spice. No complexity.

Tastes like it smells: nothing offputting, but very very tame. A little bit of inorganic spice, then a malt finish that's weirdly similar to Naragannsett, which is pretty good in an American adjunct but not really acceptable for a marzen.

12oz bottled 8/9/17 poured into a.5L krug at fridge temp 5.7% ABV. The beer pours bright light honey in color with off white head. The head recedes to a thin ring and a few bubbles with no lacing. The aroma is faint sweetness, bread and yeast. The taste is semisweet caramel up front that slowly tapers off to an undry finish. Mouthfeel is thin bodied, very carbonated and finishes with a seltzer like bitterness with no signs of hops. Overall, not a fan. I detect no off flavors or flaws, but this is a very generic amber lager, not a Marzen.

12 ounce bottle, Very light amber color. Fait nose of caramel and toffee. Taste is light and subdued with caramel malts. Brown toast. Again, all subdued. Good carb, goes down easy. A very pedestrian Marzen. Wouldn't buy again.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Decanted from a 12 oz (355 ml) bottle into a conical pint; produced 16 July 17.
A: Pours a perfectly clear, light copper color with a half inch, white head with good retention, but little lacing.
S: Floral easternness, but tart with a hint of pitted fruit at the apricot end of the spectrum.
T: Smooth, light caramel with balanced light bitterness.
M: Light bodied; good effervescence.
O: Lighter bodied and less scented/flavorful than I expect from this style, but very drinkable and refreshing as a summer offering. Wouldn't think twice about trying again and would certainly serve to good friends.
