I'm not a marzen specialist, just done a few in my time, but if it were me I would go with more a balance between the pilsner to the munich/vienna, drop the biscuit, and try for a cara crystal instead of an American (but, wouldn't hesitate to use domestic if it was what I had available).

Bumping this...I brewed this in August and tapped it a bit more than a week ago (a bit early). It's really, really nice. I love the slight toffee/caramel flavor from the Vienna. It's a big hit so far...
