Third Street Brewhouse is the craft beer offshoot of the Cold Spring Brewery of Cold Spring, Minnesota. They are doing lots of cans now, and this is their seasonal 4.6% ABV marzen-style Oktoberfest beer.
The beer pours a very clear copper and
amber in color. There is about an inch of white foam. The aroma is
malty, caramel, a bit nutty, a bit of plum fruit. The taste hits all
the same notes as the aroma. There is sweetness, but not overly so,
with very light bitterness on the finish. The beer drinks
exceptionally smooth and easy. This is one very nice drinking marzen.
