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.

Falls short, this Marzen has to much of a watery finish to be one of the better beers. It’s like I take a sip of Leinie’s Oktoberfest and it’s wonderfull inside my mouth for the first couple seconds, then turns to water with a non-existent palate. This is an average try at this style. Pours golden and copper hues with a white foamy head. The malty caramelly goodness lingers for a few seconds then leaves.

Golden color with little head...no lacing. Smell is very mild but mostly malt and a sweet bread smell. At first tatste it seems to hit the style on but after the inital taste it feels thin and has a very grainy taste in the finish. Ok but nothing exciting for the style. Mediocre.

Orange with a white foamy soap like head. Aroma is very plain. Wasn’t able to pick out anything distinct. On just aroma alone I wouldn’t know its style. Decent malt, but still too thin. A slight roastedness to it. Very smooth and malty enough to make it a tolerable option.

Drank 2 of these at the company party. Boring aroma, barely an o’fest flavor. Tasted more like MGD. Blech, I wish this wasn’t SABMiller now. Quality of this is low....

Beautiful deep pumpkin color, light body, initial sweet aroma and malty taste that quickly dissipates to a slight chemical bitterness. We Midwesterners love our Leinies, and for an affordable quaffer in October, this isn’t half bad.

Clear golden amber. Nose some biscuit, bit sweet. Flavor sweet malts, toasted biscuits, and something akin to dish soap. Like pretty much anything Leinenkugel’s, it’s decent, but not exceptional in any way.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - OCT 16, 2005
12 oz bottle from Woodmans on Gammon Road in Madison, WI. Lovely, lovely scintillating golden body, fairly dense whitish head that lasts...sweet malty-molasses/maple nose with a hint of woodsmoke...sweet, sugary, simple flavor profile, quite light with some dry herbs hinted at late...somewhat fluffy mouthfeel. Not bad, certainly one of Leinies’ best these days.

Almost spilled some when the carbonation caught up with my pouring -- luckily no drop wasted. Had a nice slightly yellowish head. Smelled like herbed hops and sweet malts, tasted more like the malts rounded out with honey and caramel. Decent stuff.

Ok, so this isn’t the end-all, be-all of Oktoberfest beers, but it is tasty amd a nice sipping beer. Good flavor and price means I have a new beer to stock my fridge with during the fall.

light golden color. aroma is of orange and citrus flavors. not an exiting beer at all. Its better than say a miller lite but thats not saying much
