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.

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.

heemer77 (5104) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - OCT 9, 2004
The coloring is a nice reddish gold wth a medium sized white head. Caramel and some sweet grassy aroma. The taste is earthy with caramel and some butterscotch. A nice dry hay like finish. A decent O’fest, but not great.

obisbeer (565) - Barcelona, SPAIN - OCT 8, 2004
Dark gold with no head. Lightnose with some malt and yeast. Light mouthfeel with dry finish. Flavors of carmel, light roasted malt, and faint hops. Not bad though I’ll pass.

redmosquito (172) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - OCT 2, 2004
Crystal clear amber color with a thin white head, with some lacing. Nice malt and yeast balancing in the nose, toasted bread malt aroma, and the yeast smells somewhat spicey. Clean flavor dominated by malt, finishs dry with a little grainy astringency. Overall a very good Oktoberfest style.

PattyBoy (302) - North Liberty, Iowa, USA - SEP 29, 2004
I love the fall, the weather, the football and Oktoberfest beer. This offering is nothing special, pours amber, head disappers quickly. There is a hint of caramel and kind of sweet with a slight hop finish. Could have been better, but not offensive.

Silphium (3173) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - SEP 26, 2004
Clear amber body, persistent pillowy light cream head. Earthy, biscuity, toasted grain aroma. The body is watered-down but maintains traditional Oktoberfest flavors of grain, biscuit, toast, and a touch of caramel. No off-flavors. Light bitterness. The thin body keeps this from being offensive as many beers of this style border on.
