Pours amber with little head. Smell is slightly yeasty, some sweet notes are present. Taste is quite pleasant. One of more enjoyable beers in my opinion. Light, almost no body, with a sweet afterntaste that is not long lasting. A very good kirtabier!

Golden tan color, thin head. Smell is fresh, fruity, a little nutty, oily, clean fruit and hops. Taste is spicy, pumpkin, a little sweet, crisp, refreshing, savory in a vegetabley way. Long sparkling finish. Excellent for any occasion or any reason.

sweet nose that is not too strong. light brown pour with a nice foamy off white head. Taste of caramel and i agree with the taste of sweet hay or straw. lingers nicely on the palate. very smooth mouth feel.

Slightly ruby redish color, very good carbonation. Very malty, and lightly sweet aroma. Dry, mildly bready flavor, good mild bitterness. I agree with the herbal notes others have mentioned as well.

on tap. Great tasting beer for the month of October. Wonderful, though I liked the Paulaner better.

What a great lager. The fresh, live, citrusy flavor is exquisitely judged. And quite the kick on this baby! Terrific brewing.

A classic done right, I will enjoy this very good German beer a couple times a year from now on, makes Oktoberfest wannabes taste different

500 mL bottle. Thought I loved Sam’s Octoberfest, but it doesn’t compare as far as flavor profile. The depth of flavors in this Marzen is incredible. I’m ready to go to Germany now for the real deal. Can’t even describe in words. Wish it was easier to find around here. I had to order it through my bar and make it the beer of the month, but they ran out after I got my first and only case. Will start earlier next year.

Thick White head on top of a golden body. Smells yeasty, of grape juice, spicy, and floral. Very smooth and mellow flavors, hints of caramel, and hops with a slightly fruity finish. I think I like the Paulaner Maerzen better. Very good beer, great for long bouts of drinking, due to the smoothness and not too aggressive flavors.
