UPDATED: FEB 22, 2003 creepy october orange with a thick 3/4 inch frothy top..the aroma was yeasty with hints of orange peel and other dried fruits..but it wasnt strong enough..this had a nice full body, it had hints of citrus fruits, chewy dried apricots..shit, i just remembered this was a lager..all lagers should be this fruity and drinkable...this is a very solid, well made, very enjoyable marzen..the best ive had by far, though i havent had many

Beautifully adorned bottle gets an extra appearance point. Dense, creamy, and rocky foam atop a crystal-clear amber liquid. Extremely ripe and soft aroma of white grape, honey, hay, candied malt, and a touch of wintergreen. Wonderful palate is just begging you to take another sip. Classy flavors offer a hint of barnyard, honey, including a long malty and satisfyingly spicy hop finish. More Hallertauers on the nose would have made this aroma perfect. Overall, this is a super-clean, elegant lager. Easily the best Marzen I have had. Note: I enjoyed the draft better, as expected, but the bottle was a delight as well. Thanks for the bottle, good buddy, ecrvich!

No / not a good one. A real weak nose. Orange color with, flat carbonation, nearlz no head. Some vanilla and yeast taste but forgetable.

Rerate: I underestimated this one. I had a second sample and am very very impressed. Hoppy, only slightly sweet...not as delicate as originall thought. In fact, I have to add some palate points. Delicious! Original: 11/27/2002: Man! Deliciously light and airy. The most beautiful Hallertau earthy softness aroma (I want to dunk my pillowcase in the aroma and sleep on it!). Not exactly toasty or caramelly in the same way I’ve had, or even that ’out in the country’ maltiness -- just a bit sweet. Nicely made, and quite subtle. A hair too sweet for my taste...but just a hair! The first in a delightfully varied package from urbnhaut!

Deep clear copper. Nose yeasty, caramel, tart apple. Flavor similar, unusually tart and sharp, crisply fruity. Bit of toffee. Rather mineraly, bit gritty. Mildly syrupy. Not that much going on.

Orangey amber, cloudy, quite beautiful with a thin white head. Rich malty mouthfull, nice German hops at the end, very high quality stuff, I enjoy this brewery's beers!

Had a pleasant chilled, hazy orange look. Mostly malt and rye flavors. Ends quite dry and clean.

This beer was dissapointing at best. Looking at the ratings and I expected something that tops Ayinger. This beer was undercarbonated. It did not have much in the way of aroma. It was toward the yellow end of the spectrum. There was a ton (and I mean you could stand a spoon up) of body. We speculated that they used raw barley to give it that oily thickness. I kinda got tired of it about half way through. This was way hoppier than any German O'fest that I have had, and was just as hoppy as some American examples.

UPDATED: AUG 5, 2005 Hazy darker golden color, white head, nice lacing. Sweet malt nose with a fair amount of hops. Sweet malt flavor with a very hoppy and dry finish. Lots of body. I hope they drink this stuff in Germany rather than Beck’s for O-fest.
