Geiger says this is CCBs best beer, and while I don’t quite agree it’s certainly a good one. Very nice caramel malt crispness, semisweet, but a good lightly bitter finish. Excellent stuff, extremely drinkable.

what i really like about this one, unlike most oktoberfests, is that it has a nice balance of hoppiness to even out the malty graininess and darker sugars. its refreshing, bright, clean without being too cloying like other Octs. very nice indeed.

On tap at World of Beer UCF. Pours a copper orange with a white head and aroma of caramel and malt. Taste is of toasted malt, caramel, bread, hops and honey with a crisp, light sweet finish. For the style, very drinkable. Great Oktoberfest brew from CCB.

At the brewpub. Pours orange with a small creamy white head. Smell is sweet honey, lagery, standard Marzen smell with some extra sweetness. La or is sweet and light, with some hints of spice and a slightly dirty Marzen finish. Low carbonation and a lingering honey wheaty taste on the palate. Right on style and at the top of the style, just not my favorite style. Had to try though.

on tap at the brewery taproom. I enjoyed being able to have a Marzen in the summer... it’s been a long time since last year’s Oktoberfest! Mostly sweet but with a roasty note that you would usually find in porters and I’ve never experienced in an Oktoberfest. Nice touch.

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.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Review from notes at Cigar City’s taproom on 9/9/11 for Firkin Friday.
Draft poured into a Cigar City pint glass.
Appearance: Poured a medium golden-caramel color. Nice lacing.
Smell: Sweet lager aroma with a touch of fruitiness and spices.
Taste: Grassy lager notes up front followed by sweet malt and a touch of spices in the middle before ending with light hops. Nice bittersweet aftertaste.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied with a decent amount of carbonation.
Drinkability: Excellent drinkability. You could knock back several of these without any trouble. Goes down very smooth.
Overall: Very good beer overall. Easily one of the best Oktoberfest beers I’ve had. Give it a shot.

Pours amber with a thick white head. Aroma is malts and cane syrup. Taste is malts with a minute hop bite and a easy malt finish. A little unusual to have a hoppy flavor in a Marzen, but not bad.
