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.

Poured a dark amber with little head, on draft at the brewery. Fairly malty beer with little hop presence, clean and pleasant malt character. Nice malty brew that is perfect for a fall day.

6 oz sampler on tap at their Camp Hill brew pub. 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. A regular "chicory explosion here! Medium body and a roast malt aftertaste. Rather smooth and light which belies it’s appearence.

bottle. pours dark ruby blended with mahogany. there was a head; yet it receded to a thin layer, a film with a few bubbles sitting atop the Maerzen. aromas - faint caramel (malts), slight lively notes of orange slices and brown sugar. dark, roasted vanilla bean and coffee notes on the flavor. it’s mellow, slghtly dark, and very drinkable. solid lingering finish. i dig it. no lack of flavor, and not too shabby on the finish. it’s worth a 6 pack or 2. i recommend.

Pours a dark amber color with a fast diminishing, fizzy light brown head. Fair lacing over a murky body. Aroma is of dark bread malts, with no other defining notes. Initial taste starts off with a bite, finishing with a bittersweet tang. Light on the mouth, it has a watery texture with light carbonation. Reviewed on December 14th, 2006.

lumpsowers (287) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - APR 12, 2009
Dark copper pour, big dense head, with nice lace. Sweet fruit aroma. Thin mouthfeel with low carb, and a phlegmy bready sweetness. Finishes with a raisin fruity after. A Bit of sourness and candy sweetness. Not bad, maybe a tad old.

(abbreviated review, due to short notes) Very buttery and slightly nutty on the mouth. A little vinegary.

Nice toasted malt aroma, clear amber orange color. Had a nice toasted malt flavor at first but it lingers on too long. The body was a little thin for a fest beer. A good fest that could use some more body and maybe a little less toasted malt.

tidiaguy (168) - Hawley, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 3, 2003
Mild malt aroma, nothing stands out kinda plain. Good initial malt flavor but that was about it not much in the middle or finish. I think it could use a little hop flavor or something else to set it off. Not bad but just very plain.
