COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Oktoberfest style Marzen is a favorite at the famous Bavarian fall beer festivals. The distinct toasted malt flavor of this amber lager finishes quite crisp due to the extensive lagering of this beer. One sip and you’ll swear you’re in Munich.

I know it’s far from fall but I couldn’t help grab this. Bomber into snifter glass, clear deep rusty-amber with light tan head. Aroma of toast, brown sugar and faint earthy hops. Taste adds roast malt sweetness, caramel, nuttiness, light cocoa and fruity hop bitterness. Light-medium body, low-moderate carbonation, soft with roasty sweet finish. Pretty straight forward marzen.

Darkish brown. Bomber. Toasty, brown ale aroma. Dry, toasty, light coffee, nutty. No fruit whatsoever. Faint creosote in the finish. Thanks to LuckyDog for hauling this back from Pennsylvania.

Draft at abc. Hazy amber brown color, cream colored head with good retention and solid lacing. Aroma of caramel biscuit and light cocoa. Taste is similar. Not bad.

Drake (8214) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - OCT 17, 2012
12 ounce bottle from State Line. Pours a clear copper color with a thin frothy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of toasted caramel malts and very faint hops. The taste is toasted malts, earthy notes and a mild hoppy finish. Medium bodied.

Beerathon (1131) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 17, 2012
This is honestly my favorite Oktoberfest beer. I’m not a marzen fan, but this was is good. Great toasty malt feel on the tongue, with a satisfying finish.
