COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a true German style Marzen lager, fermented with Bavarian lager yeast. We used hops different than any other beers we've brewed to date, imparting a continental authenticity. A crisp beer, yet the use of Victory malt gives this beer a roasty, toastiness that is associated with the style.

Tmoney99 (10660) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 4, 2007
Draft at Smokehouse. Poured clear dark amber hue with an average fizzy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate aroma of toasted woody malt. Medium body. Well balanced woody bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. This is better then my expectations.

Dogbrick (8133) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 16, 2007
Sample at the Smokehouse. The beer is a clear pale copper color with a medium thin and creamy off-white head that has fair retention. Spotty lacing. Sweet malty aroma with a fair amount of hops. Medium-bodied with a solid caramel malt character that props up a moderate amount of hops. The finish is sweet caramel and malt at first with a lingering hoppiness left behind. Pretty good.

Rastacouere (6128) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 29, 2008
Draft @ number 2. A good take on an oktoberfest, aiming at cleanliness and accuracy and doing it well. Clean and bready palate with growing toasted notes. Firm medium body. Obvious, tasty lager character. Soft herbal bitterness closes wraps everything up. Not particularly inspiring, yet what pretty much what I expect when ordering an oktoberfest.

JaBier (4887) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - SEP 27, 2009
On tap at the Smokehouse. Clear amber pour with a thin beige head. Malty aroma with some subtle soft fruit influence (apple, peach) and light hops. Sweet and caramel malts hit the palate first followed by fruit and a bitter hop finish. Nicely balanced o-fest.

OhioDad (2493) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - OCT 3, 2007
On tap at the smokehouse - Pours a dark amber almost copper with a nice white creamy head. Aromas of big caramel, and toffee, munich malts show through most. Behind that there is a touch of spice from the authentic german hops. Flavor is all malt. Good caramel and toffee notes. Lots of sweetness and just a touch of spicey german hops at the back. Good and very true to the style

Panzuriel (1308) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - NOV 30, 2010
Out of my take home growler: Pours a rich copper brown, mildly hazy nice head of foam. Nose is Roasty malt with some woody hints. Taste is a nice tangy hop front with a solid malt body and a touch of sweetness. refreshing, medium body with good but not aggressive carbination. Finish is light good bitters.

502Che (999) - @, CAMBODIA - SEP 12, 2008
On tap at Columbus Microbrew Festival. Nice nut brown pour, but thats about it. A bit of roasted malt on the flavor; funky and out of balance to me, but not terrible.

Medium to dark brown body followed by a small creamy off white head. Some lacing. Rauchmalt aroma. Rich malty body which is very flavorful – spicy, caramel, with a bit of nut (and smoke).

Tap. Pours a copper color with a medium sized off-white head. Aroma is caramel, grain, and some floral hops. Flavor is caramel, toast, again some floral hops. Palate is medium bodied, medium carbonation, finishes crisp and semi-sweet. Decent.
