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.

I thought this was pretty good as most of Leinenkugels beers are. I saw it at a gas station and had to have it. Can’t seem to find many more Leinie beers around here.

Nothing special here as it is a typical big brewmakers version of a special brew. Wouldn’t go to far out of the way to get this one.

Only the label identified this as a Marzen for me. Nice orange color with almost no trace of a head. Sweetish aroma, but I couldn’t tell where it was coming from. Nice full body. Not a lot of flavor - some sweet maltiness and trace amounts of hop bitterness. Non-offensive.

JoeM500 (1902) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - NOV 1, 2004
Leines fest: Orange dark red. Nose is malty, but faint. First sip is watery. Not much a representative of the style. Still crafted better than most American Standards, no adjunctness or graininess. Light and refreshing, but not something I’ll pick up again. I do like the new packaging and attitude from these guys. Most stuff is pretty much light, thin examples of the styles that they claim to be.

The aroma has a pasta-like smell that is not too wonderful. It has a decent amber color but not much of a head. The palate is respectful for a lager, it has a reasonable bite, but nothing that makes this beer standout. The flavor is about as lackluster.

Reddish brown color with a solid, creamy head. Musty aroma. Dusty malt flavor. A good example, but nothing terribly special.

A typical malty aroma of the style, not exciting, but I did get some carmel in there. Reddish orange color with a decent sized white head and some lacing. Sweet malty taste that did not do much for me. Considering the source of the beer, I got exactly what I expected, which wasnt much at all.

Meh... Sour malt, sour hops. My first of the style and it doesn’t make me want to try more. One of the not so good Leinies.

UPDATED: SEP 4, 2011 I am not a huge fan of this brewer. This was my first try of this particular brew and I doubt that I will try it again.+++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a bronze color with a medium tan head. There was a strong sour malt aroma. The flavor was light sour malt. It was drier than it smelled. It generally tasted like a typical macro with just a slightly stronger malt body. Disappointing.
