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.

VA Homebrewer (525) - Portsmouth, Virginia, USA - SEP 19, 2005
Light copper color with minimal head. Mildly nutty aroma backed up with bread dough and caramel. Heavier bodied than their lager, which it obviously should be. Not bad.

Dacrza (519) - 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

snoworsummer (2149) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - NOV 15, 2013
Draft. Pours clear copper/medium brown with a thin white head and lots of lacing. Tastes hoppy, slightly bitter, and malty, with light grapefruit. Medium body and carbonation. Mild aroma of hops, citrus, and nuts.

Tap at WOB. Pours clear copper with creamy off-white head; good retention. Aroma is cereal and caramel malts, floral notes, and light spice. Flavor is dry malts, light caramel sweetness, light hop bitterness, and some woody notes; dry finish. Medium body and low carbonation.

QuezXLV (398) - Virginia, USA - DEC 27, 2012
This one looks like an apple cider. A bit of apricot and dates in the aroma. Light and thin on the palate. Wheaty flavor malty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TheHopster (794) - Netcong, New Jersey, USA - NOV 11, 2012
(bottle) Deep amber-tawny complexion with traditional white head. Thin aroma of malt. Smooth and mildly malty. Nice palate that is easy to session. One of the better domestic Oktoberfest beers.
