A very nice orange/amber color and tan head start this one. Nose is malty, delicious, and superb! The flavor is nice as well, with a very nice malt character, but can't quite live up to the nose. However, this is a great Oktober...very well crafted!

(bottled) Rich malt aroma and brilliantly clear dark amber color. Wonderful toasty caramel malt presence with a plum fruit note and a lightly bitter hoppiness. Lingering sweet raisin finish. Superb!

Fresh caramelmalt and bitterhop nose. Amber/cherrytree looks, lowish creamy head. Carame and malt flavors prevail - also some sharper edges like in the Hubertus bock - though much lighter and easier to drink. This beer is more like a Vienna than any of the other Marzen I have tasted so far.

clvand0 (350) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - JUL 19, 2003
This beer pours a nice amber color with a large creamy head that leaves a lot of lacing on the glass. The aroma is of roasted malts and sweet also. The taste is fairly smooth and I has hints of caramel with sweetness and some light spices as well. Solid taste. Very well representative of the style. Not a bad beer.

beermatrix (1497) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - JUL 15, 2003
Color is a clear amberish brown, with a nice head of light tannish colored foam with good clingy lacing. Smells quite good, nice roasty malt with some spices and herbs hinting in the back and a oily fresh hoppiness. Taste is roasted, malty sweet with a little toffee and dry spice notes. Its soft in the hops with a well rounded balance thats very smooth and slighty silky/buttery. Feel is solid, full, medium body, nice and smooth and rich, super nice silky malt feel and flavor and has a good dry, spiced hop kick in the finish, with no overwhelming characters anywhere to be found. This is one very nice Oktoberfest beer.

On tap. One of my favorite German breweries. This is how an Oktoberfest beer should taste. If you like them sort of thick and caramelly, you'll like this one. If you don't, then...

DerBiermeister (586) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JUN 12, 2003
This beer had a sort of blood or metallic like hint of a taste I couldn't quite taste and seemed to disappeared as I drank more. This is an OK beer, and good to try once, but there is not distinguishing or special about it and I would not get it again.

I got this stuff at an Italian resturant, which was kind of strange. But anyway, I couldn't really tell how it looked because they served it to me in a ceramic mug. This might have affected the taste too. It was nice tasiting up until the finish. There was a distinct metallic taste in it. Otherwise, I really enjoyed it, but didnt really go with the pizza I had.

johndoughty (3994) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 19, 2003
Amber coloured with a sweet but not sickly taste.The head dissapeared quickly and there was little aftertaste. Not so much body as some other Marzens but overall not a bad drink.

Nicemalty, yeasty aroma - with a bit of an unidentified vegetable odor thrown in for good measure. Light head - little to no lacing. Appealing orange appearance - could be a tad darker though. Very malty flavor - sticks to your ribs. Goes down smooth with a strong finish. Overall a great representation of the style.
