Schlenkerla Eiche

The maerzen is not paler. Sometimes I've thought so in summer, as they don't malt in summer (as I understand) and it could be they're spreading the smoked malt a little, but not in winter. 

The Eiche has been good, but it changes based on how full the barrel is and how long it's been there. Later on in the evening it can take on more fruity notes. To be honest though I only drink it 2-3 times per year, so I'm hardly an expert.
