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.

Full amber with white head. Aroma is neutral lager. Medium bodied, lighter carbonation. Flavor is fairly sweet and pleasant for an octoberfest, clean and appetizing. Yum.

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!

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.

Nice deep copper color - light aroma. Mild smooth malty flavor with little bitterness. Reminded me of Killians. Above average, but not great.

Rich brown-amber with an overabundance of head. Malty aroma without much in the way of hops. Starts sweet and metalic, then adds a coffe like malt flavor at the end.

Dark color for a oktoberfest. Brown with yellowish foam. Smoky flavor. Tasted some bitterness. Maybe its been a while, but this does not feel like an oktoberfest. A decent beer, but not really of the style I was expecting. More like a old fashioned ale.

BelgianBeerGal (3142) - Panama City, Florida, 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.

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.

Drake (8503) - 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.

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.
