Poured into an Irish pint glass.

The beer is a pure golden caramel color. An off-white head dissipates rapidly but leaves a film. Light lacing sticks to the glass.

The beer smells of sweet caramel, malts, and butter.

The beer tastes just like I want my marzens to taste: loads of sticky sweet caramel and malts. There's also some faint toffee and buttery biscuits in there.

Mouthfeel is Smooth and sticky, like a melted caramel candy.

Overall, I didn't expect this, but this might be my favorite marzen this year. Just awesome in every aspect. I'm glad the Brothers agree. This is really well done.
