look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3
On tap at Beer Run in Charlottesville, VA. Served in a 10 oz. glass.
Appearance: A clear orange amber beer, very appropriate to the style. A nice fine, quarter-finger tan bubbly head with average retention. Carbonation is sparse, and lacing is actually very full and attractive. Not a terrible start at all.
Aroma: See taste below.
Taste: Bleh. Very grainy and husky, with some light touches of roasted grainy bread and a mellow hop spiciness. It's all very artificial tasting, though.
Mouthfeel: Uneven, fairly thin, spritzy and bubbly.
Drinkability: A bit of a disappointment from Starr Hill. It's not that this is an undrinkable beer, it's just really, really average beer, and definitely won't be a go-to Marzen for me, despite my overwhelming obsession w/ local drinking. Shame.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured from 12oz brown bottle into a clear pint glass. Freshness date notched on label.
A: Amber lager appearance with reasonable but quickly dissapating off white head with a few spittles of lace.
S: Sour leather smell with lots of grain.
T: Grain is the dominant flavor with a slightly sour, tart flavor that is not wholly unpleasant but is a bit strange for this style. It seems like an overly sharp marzen hops flavor with more grain than usual.
M: Medium and solid for a lager -- there is clearly a lot of malt in this brew. Carbonation is spicy. The aftertaste is very pleasant with sweet and tart aspects.
D: Not Starr Hill's best offering, but not a terrible take on a marzen-style lager.
Serving type: bottle
