COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A traditional Marzen brewed with 2-Row Pale, Caramel, and Munich malts. The malts give it a hearty character and deep amber color. Tettnanger and Perle hops provide a well-balanced, drinkable finish prefect for Fall celebrations.

Bottle . Pours a light bronze watery color. Interesting having a non wheat fruit beer from this company but nothing great ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear orange color with a foamy head that sticks around for a few minutes and very mild carbonation and decent lacing. The aroma is light caramel, cooked corn, grain adjuncts and some mild grassiness and maltiness. The flavor is light caramel, rust (AKA munich malts), grassiness, and some corn. Body is light but the carbonation intensity is strong compared to what I saw in the glass. It smells like Budweiser but the taste says otherwise; There are better Oktoberfest beers out there.

5oz taster on tap during Cincinnati Beer Fest 2013. Clear orange color. Little white head. Maybe 2 dots of lace. Lighter to medium body. Lighter carbonation, more dry finish. A little sharp in the texture. Metallic aroma, some caramel malt. Light spiciness. Moderate bitter taste, no discernible sweetness. Way subpar for an oktoberfest.

Lucky me, this bottle will mark the 600th rating for this beer, marked DEC1613, screw cap. Nose crackery and spicy malt, not utterly spring-fresh but still inviting. Pours a beautiful amber with a sudsy beige head. Very crisp and carbonated medium body, light touches of citrus behind the fat Munich malt, has some cracker and pretzel, spicy and high quality noble hops. Like it, definitely do, but wouldn’t want to have more than one, just very filling in flavor and heavy in body.

Burnt orange pour, crystal clear, fleeting head. Not a lot in the nose. Taste is just a bit watered down, but not bad. Good malts in there...more Munich would be nice. Great hop character and balance. Just a touch if minerality. Drinkable beer.

kdm1984 (624) - Missouri, USA - SEP 13, 2013
Decent nose of toast and nutty malts, if a little faint. Small head; amber color; almost no lacing. Palate is watery, and taste is a little metallic. Drinkable, but not one of the best Oktoberfests.

From a twister-off cap, 12 oz. bottle, tipped and poured into a dimpled mug. I am in the mood for a Marzen flavored Oktoberfest to smooth away the day’s ending edge and ga-lory-b; an unobtrusive glass of smooth. German-STYLE Marzen, Leinenkugel’s style.

12 oz Bottle. Appearance is orangish-yellow color with medium, off-white head. Aroma is malt with some pine. Taste is sweet malts, some caramel, lots of bitterness. Palate is medium bodied, thin texture, average carbonation and a dry finish. No where near a Märzen.

RONCOD (213) - Uledi, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 8, 2013
Pours a clear amber color with a creamy off white head. The flavor was a little sweet with some caramel in the background. The finish was kind of dry and a little bitter. OK for a starter Oktoberfest beer, but there are better ones available.

Draft copper golden. Nose malt and slight pepper spice. Taste malt, mid palate sweet malt, slight spice finish.
