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.

Copper colored. Less hoppy than the pils, oddly. Plus more malt, of course. Pleasant. Again, as bitter or more so than expected for the style.

I was impressed with the fullness in the flavor compared to many of the marzen’s I’ve had. The body was copper and heady. Green raisins, and highly malty. Smooth, and as notalush points out, also bready, yeasty.

notalush (4910) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 4, 2004
Big vienna malt qualities and a smooth, bready flavor are balanced by a slight hop bitterness - somewhat of a yeasty finish - pretty good, but their pilsner is better.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - APR 16, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 26, 2004 Amber color with no real head to speak of. Aroma of a light malt but nothing else. I’m not sure what award the brewery is referring to but if they had awards they give to themselves, they should decine even being nominated. I didn’t notice any of the hoppy finish of the previous two raters but more of a bland malt taste, period. I couldn’t even finish it.

VENOM (941) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 12, 2002
Clear golden amber. Modest off white head. Toasty, lightly sweet with a generous German hop charge. Clean, quenching and fresh. Touch of Munich toastiness. Long toasty sweet finish. Very nice.
Earlier Rating: 10/12/2002 Total Score: 3.8
Clear light amber. Thick white head. Rich Vienna maltiness. Touch of nutty sweetness. Medium body. Finishes a touch bitter but a very good brew.

Golden Amber color with medium head. Slightly sweet malt aroma and flavor with a hoppy finish.
