This bottled brew poured a large sized head of fine to medium sized mostly lasting white colored bubbles that left behind a fair lacing. The body was transparent softly carbonated and orange brown colored. The aroma was mold with malty bitter and fruity notes. The mouth feel was smooth malty and a mildly bitter biting finish. The flavors contained notes of malt hops caramel dough and other bitter notes.

cbkschubert (2900) - BFE, Arizona, USA - SEP 18, 2008
12 oz. bottle from Plaza Liquors - Pours a clear amber color with a one and a half finger thick off white head. Nice lacing. Aroma is toasted malt, herbal hops, and a touch of biscuit malt. Flavor is a lightly sweetened toasted malt with light esters. Light to medium body. This beer isn’t half bad.

marksahara (79) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 7, 2008
On draught in NOLA. Pours an orangish copper with moderate white crown. Aroma is completely replete with malt, caramel malt, biscuit, and a slight hint of roasted malt. The flavour is full of sweet malt that is carried through to the finish with mild hop bitterness. This beer finishes very cleanly with a moderate carbonation and medium-bodied mouthfeel. Very easy drinking and amazingly balanced. One of the best American-brewed Märzens I’ve had. I’d love to try this in the bottle some time soon.

Fall Fest pours a light golden brown, with a medium white head. The aroma is of sweet malt, with a bit of citrus coming through. The body is light and so is the finish. This is a refreshing beer that would seem to be more suitable for summer. I dig it.

A clear, golden pour with a small white head. It has a very light aroma with some faint caramel. The medium body has lively carbonation. The taste is malty and earthy with a slightly dry finish.

Thisis12ptfont (836) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - OCT 23, 2012
Weak aromas of maple and dark fruits. See-through amber with a quick dissipating foam. Slightly watery with flavors of caramel, brown sugar, and amber malts. Overall, very simple brew with no complexity. A little watered down. I’d give this a C- rating.
