Lagers away! Pours a brilliant medium orange color with a white-ish head. Nose is malt, more malt, some slight citrus and floral hops, followed by a hint of lager. Flavor is amazingly balanced and refreshing. My new favorite Fall beer. Light to medium in body and crisp in the finish- lacking the usual abrasiveness of the yeast in the finish. For a style I don’t care for, this beer is outstanding. Great job!

On draft at Cigar City, poured a really nice clear amber, that made my mouth water. Aroma of some floral hops, and malt. Really nice balance of malt and hops, a hint of caramel. Really sessionable beer.

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.

dchmela (2600) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 24, 2012
From the growler. Pours a clear copper with a thin white head. Spicy earthy noble hop aroma. Big malty body, touch of breadiness and noble hop bitterness. Excellent marzen.

DialSquare (2498) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 16, 2011
Growler brought up from the brewery by wilkes and lynn (thanks!). Yeasty sweet caramel and banana aroma. Taste is grass, sweet caramel malts, vanilla and grain. Finishes grainy. Good balance. Not my favorite style, but drinkable.

dimenhetfield (2487) - , Florida, USA - AUG 13, 2012
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.

Draft @ redlight redlight. Sweet caramel malts on the nose. Pours amber gold with a solid white head. Light caramel malts upfront with some grassy hops and a crisp finish. Very light and crisp very refreshing

Aniela (2305) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 29, 2013
Draught at the Pony Bars Cigar City Event NYC sept 2012. Nice clear amber beer with a small offwhite lacy head. Malty and floral aroma. Malty, floral, hoppy and some kind of herbal grass flavour. To much floral flavour for me...

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.

jbruner (2135) - Athens, Georgia, USA - SEP 20, 2012
Pours a hazy golden brown on tap with good off-white head and decent lacing. Aroma of fresh, grainy malts and slight sweet, german malts. Taste of bready, grainy malts. Good stuff, one of the best oktoberfest beers I have ever had.
