Nice Oktoberfest-like beer. Faint aroma of Pilsner malt. Nice earthy color. Full body without being too heavy with appropriate carbonation. Malty up front with grassy notes than combined with a mild spicy hop flavor. Good.

Aroma is caramel, malts, fruit and mild sweetness. The flavor is caramel, fruit, slight sweetness, bread/malts and a mildly tart/sour finish.

Good to be back. Thanks to the wife for getting this one. Release#17 in a 750mL bottle. Nose isn’t that great, but the taste is decent. Copper brown with almost no carbonation. Taste is nut-toffee. Sweet and lingers. Hopped just right. A welcome treat after a long, arduous day at work.

At the Epic tap room, GABF week, 2014. Good malt flavor, some caramel,with a light sweetness and grain. Good palate. There is nothing particularly creative about this but it is a fine Marzen.

A really good marzen. Pours a dark honey color. Great dried apple and apricot aromas with nice bread and honey notes. Flavors are sweet and malty. Dried fruit and bread. Full bodied and well crafted. Nice!

Draft. Pours a medium, off white, well retained head over a clear, dark amber (SRM 14) body.....nose is moderate toasted malts, cereal, toast, no esters, slight herbal hops.....taste is slightly sweet to start, cereal, toast, soft throughout, no esters, minimal hop bitterness on the finish, balance to the malts.....mouth feel, medium body, medium carbonation, malt softness throughout. This is quite malt forward as befits the style, but the complexity in both aroma and flavor, is on the low side. A re-do of the malt bill would be helpful. BJCP 7/3/14/4/7

On draught at BeerMongers. Caramel color. Aroma is biscuit, caramel, and plum. Taste is intense caramel, biscuit, grass, and plum. Quite sweet, with a touch of pleasing bitterness. Great märzen.

Bomber from Pace High. Orange brown pour. Aroma of toasty malt, herbal, sweet caramel, smoke. Tastes are sweet, stale bready, toffee, honey, malty. Syrupy. Yeah, not my style - so tough to place it.

A very good lager, smooth, biscuity, and slightly sweet. Orangish brown appearance, thick head and a rich mouthfeel.
