COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Martian Marzen Lager falls under the Octoberfest/Marzen style. A wonderful caramel sweetness and aroma best describes this smooth, full-bodied beer. Hallertau hops are used for bittering and flavor. Pilsner, Munich, crystal and chocolate malts are mashed at 154°F. The Martian is fermented with Bavarian lager yeast at 50°F for approximately 21 days.

NeroFiddled (105) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 3, 2002
Hazy. Deep amber color with orange highlights and a fluffy off-white head that diminishes quickly but holds fairly well. The aroma is of sweetish malt, and a touch of fruitiness - not much hop. The body is medium with a moderate carbonation, leading to a full mouthfeel. The flavor presents sweetish caramel malt with an OK balance. The finish is a little bit sticky, almost candyish, but gives a burst of hops on the way out.

22 oz bottle notes from a year ago (not sure how old the bottle was). Pours a clear golden amber color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have mildly sweet malts, hints of a hard to place fruity character, slightly bitter, toasted bread a hint of earth. This is not a big beer at all, nothing memorable and I wouldn’t drink this again.

cheap (4054) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 9, 2013
From a bomber. Slightly sweet aroma and perhaps some perfumy hints of citrus. Yellow and sortah brown maybe orange inthere to. Wew, quite a impact at first, seemed a little bitter for a fest but after the session continued, it got a little better. Decent co2, yes, cleans up after you drink it for a while. Some sweet cloying attributes but never rude. A little better than most fest beers.

DrSilverworm (6370) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 29, 2013
On tap during Ohio Brew Week 2013, taster from Tony’s. Clear golden color. Little white head. Couple bits and ropes of lace. Light to medium body. Smooth, lighter, kind of soft carbonation, more dry texture. Good peppery breadiness, light hay. Moderate bitter taste, minimal sweet. Solid lager. Nothing special for me. Decent marzen, though.

Nephilium (1356) - Ohio, USA - MAY 20, 2013
Light biscuit aroma, pours a clear light amber with a half glass of white head. Slight bitter taste, then a touch of tartness, finishing with the biscuit notes. Not a Buckeye beer I’ll be getting again, their other offerings have been much better.

SkiGhost (1) - Garfield Heights, Ohio, USA - NOV 20, 2012 does not count
Probably not the best critic on this one. I believe the style deserves the high rating but overall this wouldn’t be a go to beer or even an occasional beer for me. Appearance & color was nice. It looked appealing. Liquid is hazy Head is solid in retention, just off white.

JaBier (4887) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - SEP 26, 2012
Sample at Buckeye Beer Engine on 9/11/12. Clear amber to copper pour with a medium beige head. Malty and caramelly nose with some roast and crisp fruit notes. Malty and fruity flavor with some caramel and a mild, light toasted finish.

Pours a translucent gold with a thick, frothy head. Perhaps over carbonated Sweet, lightly malty aroma appropriate to the style. Sour, overly effervescent taste suggesting some infection in this batch. Numerical scoring here represents what i hope is an anomaly. Will rescore when I can try another bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JStax (2980) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JUN 25, 2012
Poured on draft. Orangy amber color with a white head of foam. Nice retention. Aroma is sweet, carrot cake, slightly bitter, roasty, bready. Taste is sweet at first with the munich and crystal malts and then just slightly bitter in the finish. Nice Marzen, but it feels a bit heavy.

22 ounce bottle. This just showed up at a local beer store recently for $1.99 a bomber, and I have no idea how old this bottle is. However, the label on the bottle is different than the one shown on BA for this brew, and the label lettering/design does look more like what Buckeye has been using on some of their other bottles lately so hopefully it’s a new batch of this beer. Served in a mug, the beer pours a slightly hazy orange/amber color with about an inch off-white head. Head retention and lacing are both good. Aroma is nice, it smells like bready and caramel malt, grassy and herbal hops, and a bit of apple. Taste is similar to the aroma, with it tasting like bready and caramel malt, along with some grassy and herbal hops. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s a bit slick and sticky with good carbonation. I think this is a solid overall brew, and for just $1.99 I’d buy this again in the future. Definitely worth a try at that price.

BVery (6222) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - FEB 29, 2012
Bottle. Clear light amber/orange pour with a small white soapy head. Aroma is sweet caramel. Medium to lighter palate with nice carbonation. Taste is caramel, light malts, and a nice hop zing. Very nice marzen.
