NielsenRatings (8273) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 16, 2013
GABF 2013. Pours an orange appearance with a cream colored head. Bready, corn, toasted malty, grassy/herbal aroma. Slightly sweet, toasted malty, a touch burnt, caramel, hay, lightly fruity flavor. Hope to try again but this one was kind of disappointing.

Jesterdeal (1655) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - OCT 11, 2013
Bottle from WillRunForBeer. Aroma is biscuit with slight tea and malt. Pours like a fresh mix of instant 4c iced tea with a nice hazy film. Taste is malty with biscuit, stale bread, and typical marzen malts. Mouthfeel is smooth and silky. Great lager as usual from Jacks Abbey.

ReggieDunlap (2926) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 7, 2013
Pours a clear light amber with a medium white head. Aroma has light toasty caramel and toffee but not too sweet. Flavor follows suit and adds some hay, wheaty and biscuity notes. Mouthfeel is full and the finish is malty hay with a faint touch of hoppy grass/spice.

A bready, malt forward marzen. Clear gold pour with 1 finger head. Bread, grains, caramel aroma. Biscuity, bready and spicy. Moderate caramel sweetness and slightly bitter. Dry finish.

pete4999 (973) - Buffalo, New York, USA - SEP 23, 2013
On tap at Blue Monk in Buffalo, NY. Poured a clear deep orange. Has a pretty standard American marzen caramel smell and sweet taste, heavy on the malt. Good, but nothing to write home about.

Scrapersnbeer (1434) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 21, 2013
Dry, grainy, caramel aroma, close to brown ales. Orange color, unfiltered look. Great hard malt flavor, sticks around for some time. Okay bitter balance, in the proportion of the style. Really smooth body, just the right crispness. Best beer of this type so far this season.

JStax (2601) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - SEP 14, 2013
Half liter bottle thanks to lukaduke. Pours a hazed copper with a somewhat thin, soapy head of beige foam. The aroma has a bit of gingerbread, spiced bread biscuit malt going on. The taste is sweet with a touch of spice coming through. Lighter on the palate. Easy drinking.

czar (3790) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 9, 2013
pours clear medium dark golden with a small off-white cap, some retention and lacing. bready and lightly toasted hay-ish malts, nice peppery caramel leaking through with its hint of maple-like-non-artificial sweetness, very fruity-lager-like, tasty and spicy - cakey and quite dry (!), bitter herbs and grass, earthy leafiness. bright to average carbonation, light body - oily but not heavy, very nice crisp herbal-grassy-peppery finish. much enjoyed!

Leighton (9838) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 5, 2013 Bottle at Sander’s in NYC. Pours clear gold with a creamy white head. Malty aroma, mild orange citrus. Light sweet flavor, moderate sweetness, bready malts. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Bready malt finish, mild yeast, faint toasted sugars. Very tasty beer.
