Company: Appalachian Brewing Company
[Main] Location: 50 N. Cameron St., Harrisburg, Pennsylvania
Style: Marzen Lager
Served: 22oz. bomber purchased at ABC of Collegeville, PA
Drank out of a 16oz. British dimpled pub glass
Beer poured deep coppery brown with a thin, off-white head that dissipates quickly, leaving a "spotty" lace.
Beer starts with a decent buzz, full body and very slight hop bitter. Middle is smooth, with creamy caramel malt, full-body and a good malty mouthfeel. Finishes moderately dry, with a smooth, grainy-floury flavor.
This is very similar to a traditional Oktoberfest, but with a much fuller mouthfeel. Hops were minimal, and I couldn't pick up any hop aroma at all, but there was some subtle bitter presence. The carbonation was perfect, and the malty flavor of the beer make it very drinkable and very refreshing. This beer is perfect for any beer drinker, and I'd recommend this beer, along with any other ABC beer, which is by far my personal favorite brewpub.
