12oz bottle poured into snifter. Didn’t really find anything super special about this one. Up front malt presence with a slightly sweet flavor. Didn’t knock my socks off but it was easily drinkable and not super sweet.

ROGUE (2086) - Newark, Delaware, USA - JUN 22, 2012
12oz bottle. Pours a dark copper color with a light biege foamy head that leaves spotty lacing. Nose is sweet and fruity. Flavor is sweet malt, with hints of apricot and honey. A lingering mild hop bitter creeps in as the aftertaste. Medium bodied, slightly slick with mild carbonation.

Fratto (2524) - Arlington, Texas, USA - APR 18, 2012
Bottle from Cavie. Orange pour with a white head. Aroma is caramel, sweet spices, and grain. Taste is bready, oranges, spices, and a little metallic.

Braudog (5489) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - FEB 23, 2012
Bottle. Classic fest appeal -- amber, bubbly and well-topped. There’s a stark appley aroma, like cider’s brewing on the stove. It drinks with the same similar appeal -- sweet, orchard-fruity, and light bodied. (#4482, 2/23/2012)

Poured cleared amber with a decent head. Bready aroma followed by sweet malts and slight bitterness. Nothing special, but not bad.

nick76 (4144) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JAN 1, 2012
The aroma is mind and slightly acidic with malt and grassy hops. The appearance is orange gold with a small head. The taste is like the aroma and bread like. The palate is average. Overall a decent beer.

Palidor19 (2881) - Brandon, Florida, USA - NOV 30, 2011
Very solid all the way,has a nice rich caramel malt with a nice sharp mouth body. good carbonation which makes it not to fizzy to drink. very little on the hops but it brings out what is good for an marzen style.

Elwood (2960) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - NOV 16, 2011
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from State Line Liquors. it pours a very nice amber color with a large off white head. The nose is pleasantly malty with some toast and white bread crust notes. There is a hint of oxidation as well. A touch sweet with caramel and bread notes dominating. I get a hint of what may have been grassy hops but now taste stale. Medium bodied with softer than average carbonation leading to a medium, slightly dry finish. Decent.

Aurelius (3906) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 5, 2011
Toasted, but somehow green (perhaps pistachios), marzen aroma. Absolutely terrible label - looks like a clown got thrown into a blender and the remains were sprayed on the entry sign to some German berg. Clear copper beer, tannish head. Clean, toasty, nutty-sweet and well-hopped flavor profile - very true to style. Drinkable and good. This would be a good pairing with any red meat or Italian pasta. Finishes out with a light sweetness and a woody bitterness. A strange but decent ride. ABC Liquors, Betton.

Jow (1862) - New York, USA - OCT 16, 2011
Sixes for Sunday NFL games. Pours brought copper with nice head. Tastes malty, of caramel, earth, with nice combination. Slight stickiness on palate but a decent Oktoberfest.
