The beer pours a dark golden to copper in color. There is an inch of thick, foamy white head. The aroma is malty, sweet potato, with a bright tanginess. The taste follows the aromas, malty, sweet, but then with a cut of bitterness that is metallic. The metallic flavor kills the beer. It has a refreshing, smooth carbonation. This is not your best example of a marzen, tastes cheap.
