Poured oragne/amber, like leaves of fall. Light head. Pleasant dry flavor. Good hop finish. I loved this beer.

DewBrewer (295) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 24, 2004
Light copper in color, with moderate white head that disappears quickly. Malty sweet aroma. Medium bodied, with good malt background and a decent hop bitterness that keeps it from being cloying.

DrunkDad (12) - Minnesota, USA - SEP 24, 2004
A benchmark for Oktoberfest beers. Sweet malty aroma and taste that is the trademark of Oktoberfest beers. Goes down smooth. Easy to drink in responsible celebratory quantities.

Smooth medium body lager. Great fall marzen for watching football! One of your better Hacker brews.

egajdzis (6007) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 23, 2004
Poured a copper color with a small off white head and light lacing on the glass. Toasted dough, dry grains, and very light sweet caramel malts in the aroma. I would have liked the aroma a little sweeter. Flavor was also dry and lightly smokey, but the caramel and honey stood stronger here than in the aroma. A light hoppiness comes through at the end, with medium carbonation.

HopsOrDie (687) - New Lenox, Illinois, USA - SEP 23, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2005 Dark golden color with fairly high carbonation. Aroma is toasty and malty. Light and crisp flavor with a toasted, nutty malt flavor. Easy to drink. After re-rating, there is a lot of sweet malty flavor in this one that many are lacking. It is turning into a favorite.

12 oz bottle: spicy hop aromatics, with honey, caramel and floral notes. Interesting fruity flavour, with nuts, candied malts and figs. The palate is even: smooth with some nice carbonation, and finishes with enough flavour to keep me coming back. Fair and tasty.

jewedekind (450) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 22, 2004
In my opinion this is the best marzen made. It has the nicest balance of malt and hops going. The beer is incredibly drinkable. The malt aroma is straight from the brew kettle. Caramel throughout. I think this is a classic and have found no American micro that can touch it, though several Germans come close.

jimmack (1223) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - SEP 20, 2004
Copper color with a good size off white head. Sweet malt aroma with hints of yeast. Slightly sweet malt flavor with a touch of caramel. A little light on the palate, but a very drinkable beer.

Metalhead (643) - Lake Zurich, Illinois, USA - SEP 19, 2004
Poured an orangey color with a mild 1 finger head. Mild sweet malt and very subtle caramel in nose. Flavor was a somewhat watery version of aroma. Nothing outstanding but a pretty good session beer.
