Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 9, 2002
Deep golden amber color with a thick creamy head and a good amount of lace. Sweet, appetizing malty aroma with hints of caramel. Sweet malt flavor with a slight fruitiness.

jcalbi (378) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 4, 2002
Deep copper color with a brown sugar aroma. Brown sugar comes through in the taste as well. Decent dose of hops on the finish. Some hints of chocolate as well.

This brewery can do no wrong. A marvelous amber marzen with plenty of fantastic aromas coming out of the glass (or in my case, the plastic cup). A malty mouthfeel with hints of chocolate. A real winner! Tons o’ malty goodness here. My favorite marzen/okto, hands down!

JoeM500 (1902) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - OCT 2, 2002
Deep copper color, like the wheat penny in your piggy-bank. Short lived thin head and nose of sweet malt with hints of green grape and fig newton cookies. The flavor is quick, leaving just a hint of sweetness behind. The quick hops’ tickle breaks through the sweetness and suddenly disappears. Light and refreshing despite it’s sticky sweet start. As it warms it seems to grow in complexity. Very good.

motelpogo (6203) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 2, 2002
UPDATED: DEC 14, 2004 rum and raisin aroma. surprisingly thin and flat. some advokaat. rerate. tasted lots of different flavours this time but somehow ended up with the same score. helles-like with some tinny bitterness. dark amber. fresh at least and drinkable

TAR (2437) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - SEP 27, 2002
Nice frothy and white foam. This boasts more figs than most other Marzens. Underneathe lie your typical spicy hops alongside honey, caramel, and candied yams. Finsihes with green apple and soft tea texture with some leafiness. Medium body; soft, but sufficient carbonation. Flavors show some floral notes, more like honeysuckle, nuts, and lingering fruity malt finish. A tad light on the palate, but the flavor suffices for the style.

urbnhautebourg (997) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - SEP 23, 2002
Classy, where Paulaner is blundering. All the great caramel and roasted malt flavors brought together very nicely with a dry finish. Seems that this beer is not what it was before the merger with Paulaner.

2nd Oktoberfest of the season. Prefer it much more so over the Sam Adams version. Deep amber color with pleasant hoppy mouthfeel.

MrRomero (1974) - Nolanville, USA - SEP 20, 2002
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2006 Nice flavor. Caramel, honey. Very good. I enjoyed this one. 7-4-6-4-15 Rerate December 15, 2006: Poured light amber with a medium sized off white head. Well balanced hops and malt. Not very sweet which is a plus for me. I don’t know where the caramel/honey flavor came from in my first rating of this but it’s not present in this bottle. Slight bitter metallic finish.
