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.

On tap, Camp Hill location. Pours a clear dark copper, kinda unusually dark really. Small fizzy off-white head that retained as a thin film. The nose is all husky and toasted malt, with a grainy quality to it. Flavor is sweet malt up front with that slight huskiness. Light biterness and a touch of alcohol apparency on the finish. I don’t really get a whole lot of munich malt. Medium bodied with moderate fizzy carbonation. Overall, not something that stands out among the O-fest crowd.

Had a little warm. That said, this was okay. Aroma is balanced malts. Taste is decent enough, pretty much just your average marzen. Better than most lagers, but still just okay.

Aurelius (3910) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 27, 2013
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.

cheap (3806) - Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 22, 2008
Smells good. Taste is strong. Seems higher in alky than 5%. Looks like clear ice tea. Filtered. Good, about average carbonation. Other fests I’ve had have more refined manners. $3.50 a bottle. Comparitivily, a little expensive around here. I’m being generous on the flavor rating.

Butters (3686) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 10, 2009
Tasted at woody’s. Pours a dark amber with reddish highlights. Nice and malty nose and body. A little on the sweet side. Caramel flavors pervade. Decent for style I suppose.

DiarmaidBHK (3170) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 7, 2011
Pours brown from tap with a head that vanishes as soon as it hits the glass. Nice maltiness on the nose. Taste is a bit bland. Not a lot of flavor on the tongue. Carbonation is medium. Clean finisher. Starts strong but ends in a whimper.

BelgianBeerGal (3023) - Dayton Area, Ohio, USA - APR 10, 2009
Bottle in Nashville. Cloudy brown pour with a thin off-white head. Big aroma of caramel malt and sulphury molassas. Slightly tart flavour with the malt notes. Touch of bitterness in the finish. Nice overall.

alobar (2623) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 9, 2011
Dark copper color with an off-white head. Aroma of nuts, toasted malt, and caramel. Flavor has lots of toasted malt, with nuts and a touch of caramel sweetness. Decent lacing. Good beer!

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 23, 2008
Bottle from Frugal McDugal in Nashville, TN. Pours deep amber with a light beige head. Aroma of sweet malts, bread, and roasted malts. Medium bodied and slightly thin texture wise. Flavor of caramel, toasted grains, berries, and some slight brown sugar. Bitterness is a bit muted on this one, but there is enough to keep it from getting off balance. Finish is sweet and slightly spicy, a slight lingering stickiness. Not too bad. I would prefer a bit more hops if I had it my way.
