On tap at Summits Wayside Tavern-Poured a redish color with a nice thick head...Some nice caramel tones accompanied by some maltiness that was overall very nicely balanced. A good Marzen.

Pleasent malty and bread aroma. Appearance is a reddish orange with little head. Flavor is well rounded with a slight bitterness to accompany the sweet flavor. There is some caramel and citrus in there. A little less flavor than some Marzens Ive had but a good example of the style.

this marzen-- tasted, prodded and lovingly scrutenized beside a penn oktoberfest and a lakefront riverwest stein vienna-- was a chestnut-copper hued sample and it scored a quick aromatic sound-byte with it's earthy composting leaf-liter malts. i dutifully noted it's ample endowment of sesame colored foam, ebbing downward like a sudsy aurora borealis, but it clamored to be recognised not for it's skin-deep appearance, but for it's richly baked oven-pan malts and unique hallertau hoppiness. i've tasted enough beers to appreciate the fundamental "german-ness" of the aroma, but i'm no engineer of zymurgy-- so i can't say exactly why that's so: it's caramel and orange, sweet, with more hops in the aroma than the finish, light to medium bodied--somehow it's very german. and for a lager, that's a very good place to be.

A very nice and easy to drink Oktoberfest style beer. A dark amber color, with a bit of residual lacing and a tiny head. Very medium-bodied and true to the style, rich with lots of caramel notes and a bitter hoppiness in the finish.

UPDATED: MAY 28, 2004 My favorite of this style. Even dig the labeling. I get tired of this style after a while though--starts to taste like beer just to drink to get drunk on, that is, loses its complexity after a few bottles. Okay for a seasonal change, though, and this is truly representational of the style. If I'm after Oktoberfest bier, I'll choose this. The big difference, I think, is in the palate--definitely a bigger, chewier mouthful than the rest.

Nice amber with tan head. Lovely malt aromas. Sweetish malt flavors with almost no hops. An excellent O-fest.

My third favorite Oktoberfest of the year. Warm, round malty flavor. A little lacking in the hops department, but so is pretty much all beer. It made me want more, which I suppose is the true test of any beer.
