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.

Sample at the North Market Columbus Microbrew fest on 09/26/2010. I cant believe I have never had this in all my trips to Barleys! Sweet malty taste. Bread, nuts and even some fruit. Plums and apples perhaps. Very drinkable and enjoyable!

Had this on tap at the Smokehouse with my friend Tommy while watching the Buckeyes spank the Badgers. Toasty and sweet nose of flowers and wheat. The brew is sparkling ruby copper. The thin tap head is mostly diminishing with no lace. The brew is incredibly well balanced especially for the style. Much more hops than I’m used to, a huge improvement IMO. Moderate acidity and a long floral finish round out the experience. The medium body is dry and lively, the finish feels very astringent.

Draft at the smokehouse. Pours a light amber/red iced tea like color with just the thinnest white head. Aroma is a very nice, crisp intense maltiness. Like smelling good quality fresh barley. Really nice smell. Taste is toasty, malty, sweetness up front then finishes relatively dry for the style. Body is medium/medium-thin. This is a quality Oktoberfest that is about what I’d expect from the style.

Rogueone (506) - I F&ckin’ hate those guys from, Ohio, USA - OCT 23, 2008
Draft @ Smokehouse: Pours a clear amber with bright orange highlights. Minimal ring of white receding head. Aroma is sweet caramel malt. Flavor is nutty, bready malt with a lingering sweetness. The first pours of this were relatively hoppy for the style. Almost a tea-like dryness in the finish. Not a standout, but tasty nonetheless.

Had on tap at the Columbus Microbrew Festival. This one was not my favorite, but had good flavor.
