anders37 (16394) - Malmö, SWEDEN - SEP 21, 2008
Draught @ WABF 2008. Pours a clear amber color with a small white head. Sweetish malty grainy caramel aroma. Sweetish malty grainy and bready caramel flavor. Malty caramel finish with some bitterness in the aftertaste.

Cloudy amber. Slight toasty aroma with a hint of diacetyl. There is more than a hint of diacetyl in the final product. It’s dominant. Maybe some caramel in there as well. I’m told that the brewery has had consistency problems of late, and some batches have been riddled with diacetyl. Hopefully they get this sorted out soon, because beers like this can’t be good for business.

after4ever (6071) - Brier, Washington, USA - JUL 18, 2009
Draft at Naked City. Pours a crystal clear dark amber with bright garnet overtones and a thing disc of tan cream on top that doesn’t really hang around for very long. Not much lace. Nice caramel apple nose--doesn’t smell like acetaldehyde, smells like a nice red apple type of yeast and some doughy malts. Creamyish lightish body--a little thick, but definitely not anything to make an ice cream float with or anything. That caramel apple thing comes back for the mid-palate, not much carb, and a sweet finish. Solid, drinkable, no real flaws. A little on the polite side, a little on the sweet side, but a nice beer.

BrewDad (4844) - Olympia, Washington, USA - JUL 6, 2007
Draft
Amber in color with a thin head. Had a very malty presence but felt like it was a lighter beer. Not as malty and with flavor as I would expect Very light in the hops. Not bad but hard to say it was a Marzen.

presario (4594) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 13, 2007
GCBF sample. Good thick head. Dark amber. Fruity aroma with notes of grass and cookie. Slightly dusty body, rough, grainy and chewy.

dwyerpg (4507) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUN 17, 2011
Some malts but otherwise a plain aroma. This is a bit sweet but also malty and yet still plain. Not that great.

CapFlu (4475) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 11, 2007
(Draught) Sampled at the Great Canadian Beer Festival 2007 in Victoria on September 8th, 2007. Lively carbonation. Deep orange body with a lasting white frothy head. Decent Bazooka Joe powdered gum and mild spicy finish. Good.

BuckeyeBoy (2624) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 12, 2009
On tap at Pike Market Pours out a amber topped with a small head. Aroma of sweet malts and a lttle malt. Tast more of the sweetness maybe some caramel and a nice malt. A touch of bitterness at the end.

bitbucket (2159) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - JUN 15, 2008
On tap at WABL Fathers Day BrewFest 2008. Pours clear copper with a lacy, creamy off-white head. Medium body & moderate carbonation. A bit of toffee, fruit and hay in the aroma and taste. Crisp finish.

This was a nice Marzen but nothing that blew me away. Pretty traditional to the style and nothing surprising.
