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.

Good not great. Its really hard for this beer to compete in the oktoberfest category with so many great beers in that category. When drinking for first time don’t have high expectations. That way you won’t be let down. Still not a bad beer to have in the fridge.

phaleslu (6502) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 16, 2014
Draft sample at Cincy Beerfest 2014 on Fountain Square. Pours a clear orange-amber with a small beige head that doesn’t last long. Notes of toasted and caramel malts, nuts, earth, straw, grass, and some muddled fruit. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a malty but light and almost watery mouthfeel. Pretty generic American take on the style, but not bad.

Bottle at home. Pours clear dark amber with a small, tight bubbled beige head, short retention with spare lacing. Aroma is toast and nutty malt, dates and light earthy hops. Flavor is sweet caramel malt, light hops and bitterness, somewhat dirty and a sweet finish. Medium body and light carbonation.

Dark amber pour with lite tan head. Light malt aroma. Hint of roast caramel malt with dry finish lingering mild bitter. Disappointing.
