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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

Jesterdeal (1887) - 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.

Very mild. More of a session beer than an Oktoberfest. Very drinkable. Clean.
