COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A lighter version of the classic Marzen style, both in alcohol an color. Made with Pilsner, German Munich and Vienna malt, crisp, refreshing and light with a distinct biscuity malt character that’s balanced with Saaz and German Magnum Hops which keeps the beer nice and dry.

It has a little if that bite that a typical marzen would have but is a bit more smooth and crisp. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Grower shared by Eric at Capitol Beer. Pours light copper with a white head. Aroma seems bready and citrus. Flavor is darkish bready with a hint of vanilla and something like citrus. Could be very light toffee. Light grassy-herb hop. Tasty marzen.

On draft at Tap 25 in Livermore and enjoyed in the company of Livermore spokesman, ratebeer’s own, joeneugs. It pours with a deep gold body and slight haze supporting a snappy off white head of foam and some sheet lacing. The aroma offers up apples and apricots and sugary malt sweetness as well as some grainy cereal notes too. The taste is rich and crisp with wheat and apples and dried apricot and moving into sweet apple esters. Behind those notes I get some bitter floral hops to help even this out and create further crispness and refreshment. Tasty.

Clear golden amber pour with a white head. Sweet bread, toast, and biscuit malt aromas. A nice bit of floral hops, tons of yeast, and a hint of grass on the finish. Tastes a bit grassy up front, but there’s an excellent malt profile to it. Sweet bread and toasted malt with a bit of biscuit. A hint of fruit esters on the finish.

I believe this is mis-categorized as an APA. It’s definitely a lager. Probably an Oktoberfest/Marzen. It pours golden with a small white head. The aroma is grainy with a hint of caramel and noble hops. Subtle and pleasant. The flavor is very dry and floral. Super hoppy with a nice grainy malt background. A little heavier on the hop profile than traditional examples, and not enough malt character, but still enjoyable and drinkable.

Draft. Amber beer with a cream colored head. caramel and earth aroma. Earth and caramel flavor with sweet malt. Medium bodied. Earth and caramel lingers with sweet malt and some hops.

On tap at The Trappist. Pours clear yellow with a large off-white head and a floral aroma. There is a nice pale malt flavor, sort of sweet , with a subtly bitter finish.
