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.

Pours an amber color with white head which quickly disappears with some lacing. Tastes of caramels, malt, and light hops. This beer is very well balanced and light bodied with a crisp finish, making it a very drinkable one. I enjoy this beer but for an octoberfest it is really sub par.

I was quite impressed with this beer actually. It had a great flavor to it, slightly sweet but not too much. the only thing that it lacked was a little bit of body. JUST not thick enough for an octoberfest beer.

12 oz bottle. Pours a clear golden/copper color with a slightly off white head that disappears rather fast. Aroma is of grain and something else I can’t quite make out. Flavor is a little low. I was hoping for a more robust, full, rich flavor so I would say this is a bit of a let down but not terrible by any means. It is a good shot at a middle of the road Oktoberfest. I could see this being a transition beer for people wanting to get into Marzens.

Pours an orangeish body with a thin whtie head. Moderate malts, leaves, and raisins in the aroma. Well carbonated mouthfeel with a mildly bitter finish.

Maybe I’m crazy, and maybe it was different because I always got this beer on tap, but I always thought it was very good.

Oktoberfest are expected to have a fuller slightly more thick flavor than does the Leinie. Very just okay.

UPDATED: OCT 12, 2008 had this beer again my first rating was not so flattering was far better than the first rating pours was amber with off white head aromas of malts and and hops taste was of crisp malts and hops easy drinking smooth by far not the best of this style but a decent session beer

See, I really like Leinies because they show that they can make some great beers. This one however isn’t one of their better brews. Taste is bland with some light bitterness with a crisp clean finish. Just doesn’t have enough flavor. Come on Leinies, you only need one or two beers to get the bud light drinkers on your side. Wouldn’t buy again.
