COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A traditional Munich-Style Oktoberfest, this malty amber lager provides a full-bodied and smooth taste. German Noble hops take a backseat in this “celebration for your mouth.”

Can@ trailer. Clear amber color with ivory head. Toasted caramel, herbal, marshmallow, grassy aromas. Medium body with average co2. Toasted caramel, herbal, grassy, peppercorn flavors with a lightly bitter finish___not too bad.

Steverus0 (181) - Shreveport, Louisiana, USA - SEP 20, 2014
A little bitter on the nose with a bit of stainless steel and a bit of yeast and caramel. Clear herbal hops are just vaguely present in the background. Pours a medium mahogany with a very light and tight head. Tightly carbonated with a bit of yeast and lots of the expected caramel malts with a clean finish touched with a bit of clove.

Red amber with a small, firm head, Sweet sugar and molasses malt aroma. Sweet caramel and roasted malt with a yeast astringency. A malty, slightly vegetal finish. It’s an OK Marzen but just seems to not quite put it all together.

12 ounce bottle. Pours amber with a decent off-white head. Aroma of malt, grain, and caramel. Taste is the same. Not very good. Something strange going on here.

Aroma is bread and very light citrus/fruit notes. The flavor is bread, slight fruit notes, mild spice notes and a tangy/tart finish.

Fredis23 (481) - Hickory Hills, Illinois, USA - OCT 27, 2013
Slightly Hazy Copper Color, Medium Head Dissipated Quickly, Spotty Lacing. Funky Aroma, Can’t Quite Put My Finger On it, What Exactly Reminds Me... Cooked Vegetables? Taste of Malt, Once again Cooked Vegetables, slightly Sour Notes with faintly toasted bitter finish. Slightly Over carbonated, medium body that is a bit buttery... Not a great Example of style... Drinkable but not really enjoyable. Pass it... Thanks to my sister for this gift from Milwaukee, WI...

jgb9348 (4751) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 14, 2013
Slightly hazy, mostly clear amber coloured body with a copper glow and a rich, three centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of malt, alcohol, metal, light toffee and caramel and a hint of spices. Medium-bodied; Assertive malts up front with a lot of earthy and vegetal spices, some bitterness from some cardboardie malt and a big dose of funk and unpleasant sweetness right afterwards. Aftertaste shows some metal, caramel sweetness, maltiness, earthiness and bitterness, all showing relatively strong and not in a good way. Overall, not a great marzen and one that should be avoided, or at the bare minimum - not be puchased and flown back home with. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Binny’s in Chicago (South Loop location), Illinois on 21-August-2013 for US$1.67 sampled at home in Washington on 14-October-2013.

Metallic, grainy, with an unfortunate buttery quality that the sweet caramel flavors can’t disguise.
