goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - APR 21, 2007
Poured a clear amber color with a small off-white head. Sweet and malty ith caramel and toasty notes. Light fruit. The flavor was full of malt and moderately sweet. Medium bodied.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - FEB 27, 2006
Pours a transparent copper orange with a thin-lacing off-white head. Sweet sugary aroma has a floral noble hoppiness and touch of German lager yeast. First sip is of a sweet, somewhat thin, dark sugary body with a hint of smoke toward a more bitter earthy finish. Could use more of a grainy Munich or Vienna malt presence rather than the watery sugary one it has. Otherwise pretty close to style.

bfeldmann (1048) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JAN 23, 2006
"Poured a cloudy amber color with nice fluffy head. Smelled of malts and more hops then i am use to in this style. Rich malty flavor. Well balanced flavor and alcohol. Very well done."

Er...there seem to have been some bad experiences by raters who tried bottles of this stuff. For the record, I had it on tap at Ludwig’s in Philly (with a monstrous serving of strudel, but that’s a story for another day.) Anyways, I think this beer is a tad underrated. It’s terribly subtle, almost too light, and manages a sweetness so tiptoed you nearly miss it. Malt through and through, totally one-dimensional with honey-toffee-muffin-caramel sweetness, light carbonation, and a perfect mouthfeel. Maybe the slightest hint of herbs in the finish. Nice.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 19, 2005
Compliments of Slob. Fairly hoppy aroma for a fest, but there is ample malt in there. Cloudy amber with a nice thick white head. Flavor is on the mark though somewhat grainy. Rich lasting malt flavor that runs the length of the palate. Just the right feel too and no noticeable alcohol. Touch of honey flavor as well. Very extremely well done fest beer that is WAY underrated. Apparently subtle is bad on ratebeer.com

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 15, 2005
On tap. Bright copper orange color, some head. Hoppier than some other marzens, decent amount of malts, caramel sweetness is prominent. Fairly well balanced. A decent marzen.

Sammy (8397) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 13, 2005
some smoke flavor. Grainy, some malt, not the best of the style. Dry finish, with a bit of hop leaf acidic bitterness. medium mouthfeel. Darker colour

This aber colored lager poured out as nothing special. There is a rule amongst wine drinkers never buy the twist cap apparently that works with beer as well.
