I also tried it an thought it was a very poor representation of the style, mainly because it is underattenutated and too cloyingly sweet.

Sierra Nevada has always produced the best nationally distributed domestic Marzen.

Obviously if you can find some fresh german imports like Ayinger, those pack even more flavor, with more balance and refinement.

Since beer is the only product made with hops, beer bottles are brown to protect the beer from light. Beer fans hate to walk into a store and find the beer displayed by the front window. I guess I could say that Corona has such a small hops component that it probably doesn't matter, but that's just an editorial comment.

Ok. That makes sense. Hubby buys his beers which mostly are brown bottles, or he has the growlers - also brown or a stainless steel. He may have bought an occasional beer that may have been in a green bottle. He keeps the beers in the basement before putting in the fridge. Surprised then that the stores that sell the beer in clear/green bottles don't store them in a darkened area.

Clear yes but green is okay from my understanding.

I'm looking forward to trying this one sometime (soon?)

Bruce Dickinson Introduces New Iron Maiden 'Hallowed' Beer
A real ale enthusiast, Dickinson wanted to develop a beer with a true depth of character. Crystal Rye gives Hallowed a blood red hue and a smooth dry finish. The Belgian-style yeast used in this brew along with Noble hops combine to deliver a complex palate of subtle banana and a sweet plum finish.

Tks for the link/info on Bershire beers G1. I got into the first company beer site. Read a few of their offerings. Looks good.
