Bottle. Red color, pinkish red head. Rather hoppy tasting for a marzen beer. But still good. Aroma is hay, bread, grass.

It poured an awesome reddish/pinkish color with an off-white head. The aroma was of hops and some fruit. The taste was between the fruit and wheat and lived up to its name. Very different, and not bad.

SamP01 (560) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 19, 2012
Pours a reddish amber with a pinkish hued slowly fading medium head. Aroma and Taste of toasted barley, some caramel malt, yeast bready notes with some fruity esters, some mild bitterness. Palate is a medium body, crisp with good carbonation. Finishes with some toasted barley, malt, yeast a bit of fruity flavor and light bitterness. Overall not withstanding the pink head an ok drinking brew.

Reddish brown with a small pink head. Lots of fruit comes through on the nose including raspberries. Not expected. Medium mouthfeel. Fruitiness comes though with a touch of bitter hops.

cheap (4016) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 17, 2012
first let me say this is not an octoberfest nor marzen, forget about that. This is some kind of rouge colored beer that may think its approaching fest intaste but never gets there. Yes, it is purplish red on the pour. BTW had this on tap at bocktown monaca. Smells like any other clean beer. Thin creamy head. Nice lacing. Weird flavors of bitter sensations. Finish is medicinal. Yes, you can be sure this is not an october fest - I’d say it is a veggie spice beer.

maley1 (780) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 6, 2012
Reddish orange cloudy pour with light pink head. Aroma of malts, barley mash, wet hay and caramel. Taste of of caramel, malts, hops and corn syrup. Medium carbonation. This beer is kind of a mess.

AirForceHops (3118) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 5, 2012
12 oz. bottle@ Table and Vine. Lager glass shows an interesting red ruby color with a full pink head. It kind of looks like Mountain Dew Code Red. Low carbonation. Nose has some grain and substantial hop notes. The flavor starts with light caramel and light fruit notes. The finish has lots of hop bite. Lingering hop bitterness. The funny thing is, it kind of works as an IPA... the only problem is I was wanting a Marzen; Which this CLEARLY isn’t. Don’t expect an Octoberfest.

GT2 (8380) - San Diego County, California, USA - NOV 3, 2012
Tap at Jack Rose. Pours a clear pink (?) with pink foam. Pink lacing. Nose is stale cheesy hops, small strawberry. Taste is vegetal, bitter root vegetables, dust, paper, sharp chemical. No good. Astringent, chemical. Can't drink. Switching to Octomore 5. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
