Very malty with and true to the style tastes. Not my favorite style but decent none the less

Color is a hazy cloudy brown with a slight reddish tint. Flavor is mostly driven by the malts here, but that’s too be expected for this style. Slightly sweet with a little bit of bitterness on the back end.

corby112 (2214) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 25, 2012
Growler purchased at the brewery and consumed on 3/13/12. Pours a hazy dark amber color with a half finger white head that immediately settles into a thin ring.  Minimal spots of lace left behind. Earthy aroma with lots of soil and grassy hops balanced by sweet malt notes. Hints of caramel and toffee followed by bread and biscuit. Medium bodied with soft carbonation but slightly watered down.  Decent balance of earthy, grassy hops, straw, hay, bread and sweet malts.  Hints of biscuit, caramel and toffee.  Decent but a bit watered down and too earthy/soily tasting for my liking.

Draft at rattle with Andrew and streets. Pours an amber body with thin white lacing. Aroma is strawberry and grain. Mouthfeel is thin and carbonated with notes of grain, wheat, light fruity malts. Ehhhh.

Tap at Crum’s in St. Pete. Clear amber pour. Thicker yellowish head. Sweet floral nose. Taste is salty and mildly vegetal with cloying sugar. Sweet broccoli and picked green beans. Sauerkraut. Not good.

demmbonz (503) - Erin, Wisconsin, USA - APR 29, 2012
On tap at DLD 12. That is the most memorable thing about it. It was an average Oktoberfest/Marzen, Glad I got to try something from Cigar City finally.

Tap at DLD12. Lightly sweet barley malt aroma. Amber color with moderate head. Lightly sweet toffee malt flavor. Okay - an average Maerzen.

queenholly (2861) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - APR 29, 2012
Tap at Dark Lord Day 2012. Earthy caramel malt and apple aroma. Deep amber with a small off-white head. Caramel malt, light fruit, earthy vegetal flavor with a light hop finish. Light body. Very malt forward. One of the better marzens I’ve tried.

TheAlum (5575) - Lisle, Illinois, USA - APR 29, 2012
Draft on tap at DLD 2012 (Munster, IN). Pours a rich glowing copper hue. Healthy fiery reddish glow and no real haze. A frothy offwhite head dies to a film, laces small. Aromas are crisp toffee, toast, biscuits. Mellow sweetness, touches of spice, and some dry floral and earthy hops. Touch of yeast, spice. Mellow sweetness leaves it a bit bigger than expected. Initial is lighter end of medium, offering crisp toast and biscuits, gentle sweetness, some crisp carmelization, dry florals and spice. Earthy hops offer spice, decent dryness. Middle is just a touch sticky, toffee, toast. Backend is a touch sticky and toasty, growing dryness, toast, and dry Europe hops, touches of spice. Quite drinkable if getting a touch girthy at times. Solid Marzen.
