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.

This sure didn’t taste like a typical Oktoberfest, as it’s rather watery and not much on the side of spiciness. Not that I didn’t like it as an everyday, drinkable lager, just not what I would have expected for the style.

Found this on draught in Champaign, Illinois. Clear, dark orange pour with a nice thick, pale tan head. This one tastes quite a bit dissimilar to a standard Marzen, without the heavy maltiness that usually accompanies a regular Oktoberfest. Nevertheless, it’s drinkable if somewhat alcoholic in the finish, clean with some sweetness. Good.

bottle. This poured a very pretty amber color, not much of a head. I don’t think this beer tasted that much different from some of their other products, like honeyweiss. It was a little bit too bitter for an "Oktoberfest" beer. Slightly watery.

Sincere (145) - wichita, Kansas, USA - OCT 2, 2006
12 oz pours a very rich-colored amber with very small and slightly tanned head. Very active carbonation. Slightly sweet malty aroma, with a hint of honey or caramel. The taste is somewhat similar to a regualar American Pale Lager, which is usually very disappointing, and this time is no different. The endtaste holds a slightly smokey effect that fades fast into a bare malty finish. Too bubbly and somewhat astringent on the tongue. Not my favorite oktoberfest.

holdenn (2083) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 1, 2006
From the bottle pours a thin copper color with a small head. Aromas of carmel, malt, and some citrus. Flavor is sweet too sweet, some carmel and grainy malt. Not very Oktoberfest and not too much different from their honey weiss and standard leine’s, mostly just a new label.

OhioDad (2493) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - OCT 1, 2006
12oz botte pours amber with a short offwhite head that stays well and laces the sides of the glass.. Aromas of caramel, toasted malts, and some citrus orange hops. Flavor is alot of dough, some light caramel, and toasted malts.. Finish is sharp hops. Palate is light and airy with a pretty clean mouthfeel.

Crash (531) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - SEP 26, 2006
Poured what I believe would be a copper like color. The taste started pretty good but, it had a sour finish. Aroma was something like a wet blanket with a hint of citrus. Not too bad overall, somewhat of a summer beer, IMO.

twindadplus2 (602) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 17, 2006
Coppery brown color with a fizzy head that vanished fast. Watery aroma of bready malt and a bit of citrus. A sour yeast/hops taste up front and bready malt rounding it out. Short malty finish. A bit watery up front and pretty light bodied. A drinkable beer but doesn’t match up to other Marzens.

Bottle sampled with Beerded_one. pours orange copper with a small off-white head. Aroma of hops, citrus, bread, and sweet malts. The flavor is bitter and mostly bready. Nothing good here.
