bavarian81 (42) - Massachusetts, USA - OCT 29, 2013
Deep gold in color. Smells of biscuit malt, grains, cereal etc. Body is a little thicker than expected. Flavor mostly matches the aroma with the exception of some indistinct spices and notes of caramel. Pretty good..

Travlr (9999) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 14, 2010
Draught at Churchkey. Very bitter and very watery, an unpleasant experience overall. We couldn’t finish this one.

Berley31 (230) - New Brunswick, CANADA - NOV 30, 2009
A: On-tap at Novare Res Bier Cafe. Poured with an average-sized, off-white head that had pretty good life to it. Body is completely clear and a dark, amber color. S: Aroma of moderate malt, with a slight sweetness to it. T: Nice, sweet flavor, without being cloying. The malt comes through to a point, but it’s mostly a sweet, almost fruity flavor. Very smooth and refreshing. M: Medium-bodied, slightly creamy, with average carbonation. D: Definitely drinkable... not sure how available this beer is, but I’d get it again if I had the chance. May not be an overly special marzen, but still a good beer nonetheless.

patrickfannon (1230) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 11, 2009
Draft. Sampled this brew at the Tap Room in the Fishtown area of Philadelphia. Pours clear orange with a thin, white head. Aroma of hay, sugar, spice, and citrus. Weak body with a clean finish. Average.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - SEP 25, 2009
On tap at the 2009 Huber Haus Oktoberfest. This is touted to be the first time that this beer is served at the Huber Haus according to the Owner of the bar. I was at the festival last year and did not see this beer (attention theisti). Dark golden color with a medium frothy white head. This has a biot more graininess to the aroma, and a slight biscuit scent. Malt sweetness is present, but lighter than many of the fest beers of this ilk. Again, the finishing palate of the Monchshof beers is just slightly on the harsh side for me. Good beer, though.

Oakes (11770) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 2, 2009
Deep gold. Bright. Big diacetyl bomb nose. Sweet palate, some caramelly note and earthy hops. Diacetyl in the background, though.
