redlight (2318) - Orlando, Florida, USA - SEP 23, 2011
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

HonusWagner (2093) - Florida, USA - JUL 22, 2013
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.

Jesterdeal (1985) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - MAR 24, 2012
Aroma of toffee, malts and a nice hickory. Pours bronze with almost no head. Taste is nice and hearty. Great notes of toffee and yeast. Sweeter than your average marzen.

Prufrockstar (1980) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 15, 2014
Can, thanks to newcigarz. Clear orange-amber, small frothy head. Aroma: caramel, toast, molasses/brown sugar, overripe fruit, decay. Tastes pretty sweet at first, but that gets reined in. Medium body, average carbonation. Overall: okay -- better than most marzens I’ve had, but still sweeter than my favorites.

zgaier (1889) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - AUG 29, 2013
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.

tastybeer (1853) - Indiana, USA - MAY 14, 2012
Draft. Pours hazy light amber with a nice off-white head, some retention/no lace. Aroma of toffee, light grassy hops, citrus, earth. Taste is toffee, light grassy bitterness, earth, caramel. Palate is soft, creamy, somewhat thin, grassy finish. OK.

BMMillsy (1788) - Florida, USA - AUG 10, 2013
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.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 14/20
otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 22, 2012
Appearance: light copper and orange. Soft white head and a solid white collar of foam. Collar branches out along sides of glass rim.
Nose: tangerines, peaches, apricots, and mango. Sweet, chewy, and meaty. Melba crust and spice in the back – cinnamon sticks. Orange rind. Brisk.
Palate: sweet spiced tropical fruits – spice is in the back. Apricots and peach skins – pits for bitterness. Essence of cinnamon and nutmeg weave in and out. Piles of fall leaves in the yard.
Final Thoughts: a nice Floridian take on the Oktoberfest style from Germany. Not too much complexity but the flavors were clean, precise, and blended together nicely.

gkost (1709) - Tampa, Florida, USA - SEP 10, 2011
Pours a brilliant clear amber thin white head. Nose is semi sweet malts, floral hops and clean crisp grain. Flavor is super clean, perfect malt hop balance. Can drink this forever. One of my favorite beers cigar city has made so far.
