onceblind (3673) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 28, 2014
Clear copper like a new penny, under a thin tight foamy head. Nose is sweet and biscuity with some toast and caramel, with that chewy marzen grain tone...smells like the best marzen ever. Tasty flavor of sweet toasted bicuit, lots of caramel, light malts, sweetness, light bitterness, and a little sweet nuttiness. Best Marzen ever, while still coloring within the lines.

Iphonephan (2689) - McLean, Virginia, USA - JAN 17, 2014
From a 22 Oz bottle shared at Ryan’s. Pours a clear with a thick off white head. Bready nose. Flavors of caramel with some butterscotch notes. Smooth finish.

BrewMstr (65) - Pleasant View, Utah, USA - JAN 16, 2014
Appropriately colored for "a fall celebration" - copper/red that looks like fall. Somewhat sweet, lightly carbonated and minimal hop flavor and aroma.

DiarmaidBHK (3167) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 23, 2013
Bottle from Total wine sterling. Pours brown with a khaki head. Doesn’t leave much lacing. A little bit of malt on the nose. Caramel on the tongue. Finishes clean. Eh! It’s an octoberfest.

Tmoney99 (10090) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 12, 2013
Tap. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with exceiient lacing. Moderate toasted malt and floral aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium toasted sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

b3shine (4446) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 11, 2013
Draft to taster. Looks good for the style; a transparent light copper with foamy off-white head. Smells and tastes sweet, malty, and doughy with a solid mouthfeel. A solid example of the style.

Dacrza (450) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - DEC 9, 2013
DATE TASTED: November 27, 2013... GLASSWARE: Schneider Weisen Edel-weisse pokal... OCCASION: Cavs/Heat Thanksgiving eve treat... APPEARANCE: thick, off-white three-finger head; excellent, almost decorative lacing; smoldering effervescence; cloudy, dense autumnal amber body... AROMA: caramel, toffee and generous pale malts; secondary pine hops balance the experience... PALATE: medium to full-bodied--teeth-chattering; surprisingly active early and late...TASTE: redundant to the aroma, caramel and toffee dominate the flavor; a zesty lemon hop spice intercedes for balance; a nuttiness reminiscent of a brown ale seeps in...complex and befitting of a waning Autumn night--a bit alcoholic late...OVERALL: the second beer I’ve had from Epic provides a similar experience to the first--rich, complex, almost challenging to evaluate or categorize, as the bottle suggests--a Marzen, yes, but much fuller of body and substantial of flavor...

alexsdad06 (4538) - Ohio, USA - DEC 7, 2013
Draft at Dutch’s. Pours a clear golden/amber color with a small off white hea. The aroma and flavor have a clean malty base with mild fruit and spices notes, bready, light toasted, very mild bitterness to the finish. Decent, worth trying once.

BeerandBlues2 (9097) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - NOV 16, 2013
Bottle, Release #11, at home. Pours clear amber with a medium, frothy beige head, medium to short retention with light lacing. Aroma is toast and nutty malt, dates, earthy and spicy hops with light diacetyl. Flavor is malt dominant with light hops and bitterness, dark fruits, a clean lager character and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

ASak10 (56) - Colorado, USA - NOV 13, 2013
Pours a light, clear amber with a head that quickly dissipates. Light sweet flavor with a faint aroma. Slight fruit flavor with a light bitter finish. Overall a very pleasant beer and a great marzen. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
