Musty and nutty malt aroma. Bubbly amber, seems overcarbonated. Dirty cocoa malt flavor, richer than the style is usually. Medium body, appropriate softness despite the look. Probably wont fly in Munich, enjoyable nontheless.AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20

Aroma is strongly malty. Pours a goldish brown with just a bit of head from tap into a pint glass. Mouthfeel is medium/thick with a bit of carbonation bite. Beer is very malty and sweet with just a bit of a spice bite. Some caramel and oaty tastes in there as well.AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a very nice coppery color with white head. Caramel malts, some light hops, and some roasty character on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with more malt. Really great example of the style.AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle 12/9/10 (Whole Foods-Lamar)-Pours a hazy amber with a decent off white head. Aroma of malt and corn. Taste of malt, caramel, and sweetness. This medium bodied brew is not my favorite style but this one was rather tasty.

Best by: 29OCT11 A: pours a orange hued brown ale with near excellent clarity and a transient light beige head. A speckled mirror sheen remains outlined by foam. No lace. S: smells like grain and some alcohol surprisingly. A hint of floral tones. T: sweet, nutty, oxidized. Not too impressive. Should have some sweetness here. M: medium bodied with light carb. O: not privy to this one. I like marzen, but this was over oxidized. Serving type: bottle

Good piney aroma. Golden copper color with a white head. Crisp and clean palate. Not too heavy. Flavors were hoppy with a strong bitterness that lasted. Decent malt backbone but not much sweetness. Easy to drink and surprisingly good. Goes well with food.
