5000 (6299) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - DEC 26, 2013
Bottle:   Ruby in color, thin to moderate foamy tannish head, little lacing.   Soft biscuit and bready nose.   Heavy biscuit on the tongue, bready, slight cough syrup like qualities.   A bit too sweet and bready at times.   Moderate to full body and mouthfeel.   Hard to even finish a 12oz bottle of this.   Too bready, biscuity, sweet, and with too much cough syrup.

Would be okay for a summer brew, but as a Marzen and posing as a winter beer, way too thin, way too simple. There is a well cooked bitterness note that lingers, adds some interest.

Gooney (389) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 21, 2013
12 oz bottle - Pours a dark brown with a very thin head that sticks to the glass. Cereal and caramel aromas. Strong malt flavor. Good winter brew if you want something a little lighter but with some good fire side qualities.

jake65 (2730) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 14, 2013
Bottle. Dark leathery brown pour with a thin creamy khaki head. Nose is sweet; malty, candied fruit, and light chocolate. Crisp mouthful slowly turns to a bready and chocolate malt finish. Yeast, light fruit presence, and some earthiness. Refreshing.

riversideAK (5626) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - FEB 27, 2013
Green apple like all of their beers on the nose caramel and some bread. Pours hazy golden amber. Thin head. Flavora of caramel and green apple. Tangy crisp hops. Unremarkable.

DuffMan (7032) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 19, 2013
Bottle. Nice deep copper orange, frothy beige head. Low aroma of grainy caramel. Same flavours on the palate, grainy caramel, a little bready perhaps. Just okay.

mbgrayson (560) - Anaconda, Montana, USA - FEB 8, 2013
Pours very dark with a tan head. Aroma of malt, a little nutty. Taste of malt, not particurally sweet. Kind of a cross between ’regular’ marzens, and a nut brown ale. I can’t really say I like it that much, despite wanting to. It is smooth and drinkable... I can’t really recommend it.

after4ever (6265) - Brier, Washington, USA - FEB 5, 2013
Draft at NCBC. Pours a murky and very dark mahogany. Impressive coloration. Loose filmy tan head. Light sheety lace. Virtually no nose, good or bad. Creamy medium body with subdued carb. Light toasty caramel on the mid palate but not a lot of other flavors showing. Mild finish.

CheersMate (1312) - Fremont (Seattle), Washington, USA - JAN 14, 2013
Fluffy head. Dark brown appearance. Nutty aroma. A little caramel malt poking through. Very subtle nut flavor, with some caramel sweetness, and a tinge of bitterness. As others have said - it’s straight-forward, without much to it. Very "clean" texture. Decent stuff.

On tap. Hazy dark copper with an off white top. Scent is cereal and caramel. Taste is caramel and earthy.
