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 a somewhat dark (yet basically clear) amber color. Fairly thin head even with a vigorous pour, and dies down quickly to basically nothing, however leaves a nice white lacing on the glass. Light and grainy aroma...nothing too overwhelming but not offensive. A very bready sweetness followed by a somewhat bitter taste of hops. Pretty average. Certainly won’t blow you away. A light to moderate body, but it didn’t do much for me. You could pour a few of these down the hatch fairly effortlessly...however I’m not so sure you’d want to. Not too much to complain about, but certainly no overwhelmingly good traits. Leinenkugel’s has much better styles, but go ahead and try this one for something different.

UPDATED: DEC 21, 2006 another surprise. This was better than i expected. A little high on the carbonation but other than that, it was pretty damn good!

I like the New Glarus better for Oktoberfest, but that doesnt mean this is a bad one by no means. Sligly bitter but smooth. A little caramel in there, kinda cross of the BBD and the Creamy Dark. Tasty malts help provide this puppy with a great color....

thedm (4935) - Fort Wayne, USA - APR 24, 2006
This bottled brew from Indianapolis for $1.09 poured a large sized head of foamy finely sized mostly diminishing bubbles that left behind a transparent softly carbonated golden brown colored body. Its aroma was mild with malty doughy notes. The mouth feel was tingly from start to finish with a mild caramel malt aftertaste. The flavor contained mild malty doughy notes with a slight hint of caramel.

tried in bottle, decent taste, again the carbonation almost too much, makes it hard to take down...caramel malt a good call here, but could have been worked with to make a more pleasing brew

Bottle. Small off-white fizzy head that mostly diminished, minimal lacing, carbonated, transparent, and an orange hue. Sweet malty, caramel and hoppy nose and ditto for the flavor. Has a clean finish. Tingly palate. Light body.

JohnnyOS (646) - Golden, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 28, 2006
Pours an orangish amber color. Aroma is basically of sweet malts. Flavor follows, but introduces a mild honey aspect. Pretty thin all the way around... nothing to like or hate to much here.

Zeswaft (1370) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 24, 2006
Smells like dirt and figs. Looks like scotch with zero head. Flavor is sweet with maybe a little bit of a bitterness. This beer is kind of gross and I’m glad I only bought a single of it. Alas, I figured it out. This beer smells exactly like your dog when you give it a bath.

RooftopRogue (423) - Champaign, Illinois, USA - JAN 2, 2006
The fruity aroma of this beer must be pulled out of the glass. This is an orangish solution that is some where between rust and pumpkin pie in color that produces a fast dissolving white head. This beer is thin and a very mild sweet yet bitter nut taste with no lingering capabilities.

The head was spare and did not have a great appearance. Not a bad beer, since there was no after taste.
