COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This smooth brew ushers in Autumn with an invitingly tawny color complemented by an assertive maltiness. A noble crispness from German and Czech hops completes this very traditional lager-style beer.

This ones a little off, slightly on the foul side. Not even quite fit for drinking by the stein. Some kind of astringent off taste in finish here. Pours orange without much head or lacing. Bottle at Crios.

Darkmagus82 (1731) - - OCT 5, 2014
Served on tap in a pint glass Appearance – The beer is served a light copper color with a one finger head of billowy white foam. The head fades super-fast leaving just a tiny bit of foamy lace on the surface of the brew. Smell – The aroma of the beer is strongest of a caramel and bready smell with some notes of toasted malt and a bit of a grainy smell. Along with these aromas comes some lighter smells of a grainy and light earthy floral and nutty smell. Taste – The taste begins with a roasted malt taste as well as a decent bready taste. Along with these flavors are a rather decent showing of a caramel and toffee sweetness with a decent showing of spice flavors of a more nutmeg and coriander nature. The sweeter caramel and toffee grow stronger to the end with a little bit of a fruity flavor of an apple nature also joining the profile. The roasted flavors fade a bit all while a more grainy and light floral flavor comes to the tongue, and with an increase in the spice flavors of the brew, one is left with a rather sweet, almost cloyingly so, and moderately spiced flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average to slightly thicker side with a carbonation level that is on the slightly higher side overall. The thicker body really accentuated the quite sweet flavors of the brew and while traditionally good for the style was a bit much for the mix of cloying and spice flavors. Overall – Not really an all that fantastic Oktoberfest. Too cloyingly sweet and just not balanced at all.

Dacrza (525) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - SEP 20, 2014
DATE TASTED: September 7, 2014... GLASSWARE: Saranac willibecker...OCCASION: PSU-Akron--too close for comfort... APPEARANCE: beautiful copper brown body; teeming with miniature bubbles; creamy off-white head--looks great before it label... AROMA: lush, creamy malts--hazelnut, fresh bread and sweet mats make for a welcome invitation... PALATE: medium-bodied and meaningful, substantial as it vacates the mouth; properly scaled with a nicely timed aftertaste...TASTE: intense caramel ad sweet malts overwhelm with flavor; hops are subtle; as fall as it gets!...OVERALL: true to form, Lancaster delivers on a sweet, crisp football pairing--as per the style, reasonably big and malty but sessionable...alcohol is balanced and patient...distinguishable from other marzens? not so sure...

Dark orange-amber body, thin off-white head, spotty lacing. Sweet caramel and bready malts. Faint florals and generic fruitiness. Medium to full bodied, mellow carbonation, sweet, rounded finish.

micronaut129 (241) - chalfontborotowntonbergville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 15, 2014
A beautifully bright clear copper colored beer with a big white head when poured vigorously. Fades vigorously too, to just a thin wispy veil. Very low carbonation. I can pick up hop presence but of no distinct flavor and sweet malt pulling up the rear. Nice malt flavor, sweet tasting from Vienna and Munich malts. Barely any hops to speak of, but it isn’t suppost to be a big player. Smooth and clean, a nice lager style. Myself, I think it could use a bit more carbo’s and be a little more aggressive in the hop area. Drink well my friends
