On tap at the GCBF. Deep copper colour with a thick and white head. Great aroma made me do a double take. Smelled it again. Bliss. Taste was all I could want from a Marzen. I wish I brewed this beer. Malt profile had several distinct flavours rolling around my tongue, and hopping was nice, not overwhelming. A great example of the style, and for me, best of show at GCBF 2005.

(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.

Oakes (15651) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 5, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 9, 2015 Draught at the brewery. Golden-amber. Sweetish with a touch of caramel. Moderate balancing bitterness. Smooth, refined among American examples.

Bradrcr (806) - Renton, Washington, USA - JUN 29, 2008
6/14/08 On draught at the Washington Brewers Festival. Aroma is sweet malt forward with a low rost note. Appearance is clear copper with a medium maintained white head. Flavor is malt forward, munich roasty, with a moderate bittering. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a low carb texture. Overall, easy drinking and refreshing for a full flavored beer.

after4ever (7579) - 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.

Copper. Malty with medium hops. Toasted Bready malts with a decent amount of sweet caramel notes. Very solid.

A nice light but full bodied take on the marzen. It is a good summer marzen- it has the caramel malt taste associated with marzen but has lightness to it. Overall it is not an authentic marzen but it is an innovative take on it that has many of the same features that the authentic marzen has.

bitbucket (2165) - 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.

On tap at Pike’s in Seattle. Amber colored pour with a decent sized head. Malty aroma with a nice sweet caramely flavor. Pretty good.

Dark amber with little head. Slight hop aroma. Very refreshing summer beer...subtle roasted malts. On tap at ? I don’t freaking remember.
