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.

onceblind (5217) - 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 (4046) - 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 (119) - 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 (3682) - Lewisburg, 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.
