COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Award-Winning Marzen/Oktoberfest style lager uses only the highest quality imported German malts, hops and our own Hoepfner yeast strain to produce a well-balanced malty and toasty flavored beer. It has a fine body characteristic of a German-style decoction mash.

Deep amber beer with a thick white head. Aroma is quite malty and sweet. Clean profile with a light floral/noble hoppiness. Sweet and bready tasting with a nice clean finish. Soft caramel and toasted malt with a nice nutty maltiness. Nice brew.

Had it on tap at Black Forest as part of their sampler. It was a deep copper color, and had a malty aroma. Very enjoyable, but average.

This pours a very nice copper color. It has a toasted malt kind of flavor and aroma. The finish is somewhat hopped, which is enjoyable, but I can’t help but think that it is hopped to cover up a mistake. Very interesting as I didn’t know Marzens to have much of a hop character.

Beautiful appearance. Just a delightful caramel color with a pleasant head on it. Really, a pretty beer. No aroma. Taste was good but too smokey.

Tap at Black Forest. Deep amber in color with a nice fluffy off white head. Caramel and light roasty aroma. Grainy and malty flavor. Light hop taste. Finish is malty. Thin bodied. Decent beer.

sampled at the brewpub. Amber in color, obviously. Aroma is light roast and caramel. Taste is malty and toasty, doesn’t seem to be much in the way of hop presence though. A bit thin bodied and not very exciting.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - APR 24, 2007
Tap @ Black Forest: Poured a clear dark amber color with a thin off-white head. The aroma was fairly malty. Malty flavor had some acidity to it.. Semi-dry with a mildly hopped finish. There was a light tartness. Light to medium body.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - JAN 27, 2007
Nice appearance. Pours a bronzish amber with a creamy thick tan head and tons of dense lacing. Slightly roasty sweet malt aroma, caramel. Flavor also has evident roasty caramel malts. Mild peppery spiceyness and a mild flowery finish. A decent Oktoberfest/Marzen.

Served in a tall mug at the brewpub. Color is brown with amber tints. Medium fothy head. Can see through it if you try hard and some visible carbonation. Aroma is present - mainly nutty and sweet malt dominant. Has an earthy aspect. Much sweeter thanan marzen I have come across. Taste is also nutty and malty but a bit more watered down than the aroma implies. Leaves a sweet woodsy aftertaste. Average mouthfeel with low bitterness.
