Scuba's Marzen ~ Northampton Brewery

Appearance: clean clear coppers – polished and pretty. Bready copper-hued head leaves a bubbly collar with a broken puddle in the middle.

Nose: crunchy caramelized apples and melba toast. Mandarin orange peel and candied orange wedges. Hint of herbal hops in the back.

Palate: clean. Apples, lemon, and melba crunch. Caramel is there but faint. Lemon and hop bitterness lingers atop tongue. Dry then sweet along the edges. A bit more caramelization with some melba for crunch and good measure.

Final Thoughts: beer number two in a flight of four, an average Märzen but nothing really to write home about.
