Bottle: drinkable , a bit watery though the malts were full and sweet. I would like to try this on tap.

Amber clear pour with a ever so slight off white head that is quick to disappear. It is clear with slight carbonation. There is a grainy malt smoke flavor on nose for this light bodied marzen. There is a slight crisp bitterness on mouth along with a soft malt taste.

Bonster (180) - Jersey Shore, New Jersey, USA - DEC 3, 2009
Bottle with friends. Pours a burnt copper in color with a medium size off white head. Aroma is bready and malty. Flavors of toasted malt, honey, and a hint of fruit back up the minor hop presence in the finish.

Pours amber yellow. Smell of lemon drops, menthol, hay. It is like a lager but more intense flavour. More lemon and a kind of medicinal taste. Is quite refreshing and smooth. Not a boring lager. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

2007 - Version (Per bottle made 6/07) What a beauty... pours a reddish amber with golden highlights and a lasting ivory head One of the classics - malt complexity ranging from sweet base malt to some caramel notes to a toasty note. Taste outdoes the malt complexity in the nose: has a lot of bread and base (munich/vienna) malt with a lovely honeyed note balanced with a nicely restrained hop bitterness and mild flavor. For all the malt richness manages to finish clean and slightly dry without being cloying. The soft creaminess makes it a treat.... Overall: Absolutely delicious... wish to taste it at the source on tap

nice orange/amber color. The smell is typical Oktoberfest with Malt and Spices. Flavors were not quite as distinct and rich as I had hoped for, yet the malt does come through. Overall a good and very drinkable beer, it is clean and smooth on the palate, with a clean after taste.

duffman462 (175) - Gainesville, Florida, USA - JAN 24, 2007
Light amber color, sweet aroma with hints of caramel and toasty malt. Body is malty, with caramel, mild bitterness, and a hint of herbs. Not bad.

Got Stout? (173) - Wisconsin, USA - MAY 13, 2001
There is a yeasty taste that does not appeal to me in this Marzen that I have never tasted before...but otherwise an enjoyable brew for eating a good meal of steak

This beer is brewed with Bavarian barley that has been slow roasted and caramelized to a rich, red amber color. Therefore, the beer itself pours with an amber/copper color and a thick, foamy head. The water used in the beer production is from the purest spring waters from the Alps. The yeast used is a centuries old, exclusive product of the brewery. Only the finest Bohemian Hallertau hops are used to give the beer it gentle bitter finish. This beer has fruity malt accents with a hint of spice. The beer has a moderate amount of carbonation that make for a lively mouthfeel. The finish, as I said, is gently bitter. This beer is very similar in taste to it cousin, also from München: Spaten Oktoberfest Ur Märzen.

red-amber color with a thin tan head; the taste is somewhat acidic, but with barely any bitterness; not as spicy as other Oktoberfests
