3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Felt like a fest beer and this is all I could find in July. Light brown color with a surprisingly thick and lasting eggshell white head. Very malty aroma. Taste is all malt of course, but not too sweet. Some caramel and floral hops as well. Creamy mouthfeel and a pleasant finish, not too sticky like many marzens. Dangerously quaffable for an oktoberfest... I’ll be drinkin this again in a few months.

On tap at the Flying Saucer in Charlotte. Clear golden coloring with a diminishing white head. Flavor was extremely malty with some mild spices. Probably the best Marzen I’ve had.

On tap. A good Marzen, better than Spaten’s. It was full of spices, though not as refresing as most lagers, but that’s mainly due to it being a Marzen.

bottle from a local german restauraunt. pours dark orange with a nice tan head. taste is sweet and refreshing. maybe a little too filling for an oktober fest, or maybe all the sausage i ate was what was filling. pretty malty tasting, but not bad. i like this, and id buy it again if i see it. good

Had this one a while back but forgot to rate it. This a sweet one for an oktoberfest style of beer. Easy to drink and very refreshing.

Nice and malty and very much in the vein I like this style. Not too syrupy sweet and very easily drinkable.

Surprisingly light orangish hue for an Ofest, with a super head. Pungent sweet caramel aroma. Alcohol-malt on the tongue, but it mellows well after the first gulp. Man, I want a bratwurst now.
