Bottle. Clear medium amber with golden highlights and an average off-white head. Lovely toasted caramel malt structure with just enough hops to offset the sweetness and provide a slight bitter bite to the finish. Delicious!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear reddish amber with a small off white head that leaves some lace. Aroma is nutmeg, malts and some earthiness from the halatauer & perle hops. Taste is a good mouthfull of malts up front finishing with a nice blend of spices and a hint of bitterness. Best oktoberfest I’ve had.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slightly hazy copper-amber with a medium head. Aroma is quite malty, with sweet caramel and some interesting earthy/leafy notes. Flavour starts quite sweet, develops with bready notes in the middle, and finishes fairly dry with a hint of cocoa.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - Grains, malts and spices on the nose. Actually quite sweet smelling. Dark clear amber with a thin brown head. Bread, grains and malty. Spices are subdued and almost no bitterness. Fairly rich and at 6.6% definitely not something to drink all night.

341ml bottle pours amber in color with a finger of off-white head that dissipates quite quickly leaving a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is caramel and some mild spices and grass. Taste is a big caramel malty sweetness balanced nicely with the grassy hops and spices. Light to medium body with mild carbonation. I found this a little on the sweet side, perhaps I needed some schnitzel and hot mustard to go with it.

UPDATED: DEC 9, 2012 Pours a nice amber colour with a solid off white inch of head that slowly dissipates and a fantastic lace that sticks around. The flavour is a nice malty/nutty flavour with the right amount of hops. This is my kind of lager!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Solid for sure. The pour is a dark amber with a fluffy porous beige head that simmers slowly to nothing. A bit of mild carbonation in the body. The nose is of light caramel, bready and grained malts, mild nuttiness and a bit of hop aroma. Well balaqnced and crisp with a full bodied kick and light grassy hops. Caramel and bready malts throughout with some sweetness. Overall interesting Marzen!

Pours a nice amber with off white head. Very malty yeasty aromas. Malty flavours, some caramel, sweetness and doughy flavours too. Nice beer for pairing with heavier comfort foods.
