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.

Average marzen-style beer, amber in color with nice bubbly white head, pretty light on the hops & the body, thin

Red color. Thin head. Some spice in the aroma. Nice malt with a little spice n the flavor. Nothing stand-out.

Bottled Jun 08. Poured a hazy brown with a tan head that settles and left light lace. Aromas of honey, caramel and some fruits. The flavor had roasted malts, chocolate, honey and a hint of spice. Medium body and a roast malt aftertaste.

This was a good Oktoberfest. Good malting and mouthfeel. Best beer that I had all night at the brewery. It was also the freshest batch brewed.

nqualls (1452) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 11, 2008
Bottle. Poured a clear amber color with a two finger off white head. Aroma of malt. Flavor was pretty much all malt. Decent beer, but I’ve had better within the style.

Probably not fair to call this a marzen or a fest, but I did enjoy it. Beautiful clear dark copper pour with a large frothy off white head that leaves great lacing. Nose is sweet malts and a surprising amount of spice ... not marzen but appealing. Mouthfeel is good and full, better, again, than a marzen. Taste is sweet malts and caramel, a little spice, more bitterness than appropriate, but I liked it, and a bitter and nutty finish. I’m probably the high rater on this one, and probably because I’m ignoring the poor match between the beer and its stated type.

roder60 (1280) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 3, 2009
Had on tap at the Gettysburg location. Pours a clear dark brown amber color with minimal offwhite bubbly head. Aroma is sweet caramel and slight dark fruits. Flavor is very sweet and malty with some fruit presence and slightly dry bitter finish, but not much. Overall, decent but not great.

Barrios (1243) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 14, 2009
12oz bottle. Pours a fading, lacing light tan head with a murky amber brown body. Smells of apples, caramel, honey, toffee. Tastes like a caramel apple. A little bready on the finish.
