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.

Very little flavor is this beer’s downfall. What I can taste I like. The wateryness is kind of refreshing which works because I’m thirsty.

Mild sweet caramel malt aroma. Clear copper body only a slim head to start. Light bitter taste with balanced caramel malt taste. Clean malt finish that is very drinkable.

Draft. Copper color, white head with ample lacing. Malty with sense of caramel, but also a slight metalic aftertaste.

12oz bottle 9/22/15 (Meijer Singles Rack)-38° in Mug-Pours copper with a small off white head. Aroma of malt, caramel, and toffee. Taste of the same with more malt. This light to medium bodied brew is not bad but just not my favorite style.

superspak (3600) - Michigan, USA - SEP 21, 2015
12 ounce bottle into dimpled mug, best before 11/2/2015. Pours crystal clear deep orange/copper color with a 1 finger fairly dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of honey, light caramel, toasted biscuit, light nuttiness, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready malt and moderate earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of honey, light caramel, toasted biscuit, light nuttiness, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of honey, toasted biscuit, light nuttiness, light pepper, and herbal/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Good robustness, complexity, and balance of dark/bready malt and moderate earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Very clean on lager flavors with minimal yeast ester notes present. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and moderately creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish as expected of 5.1%. Overall this is a nice oktoberfest style. All around good balance, robustness, and complexity of dark/bready malt and moderate earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Really not much good going on here. Not much flavor at all. Difficult to appreciate any malt flavor.

Beerdrinker79 (1772) - Idaho, USA - SEP 11, 2015
12 oz bottle- Pours clear autumn amber with a small off white head. Aroma is spicy bready rye, light hops, caramel malt. Taste is bready rye, dry bitterness that balances the sweet caramel malt. Body is a bit too thin, watery, but super easy drinking. Not bad actually.

This beer is one of the few things that get me excited about fall. Perhaps not as malty, and perhaps more hoppy than a genuine Oktoberfest marzen, this beer comes pretty close, and what’s more, it’s likely more palatable to our hops loving north American palates. This beer marries the caramel malt forwardness of a true Oktoberfest beer with one I’ll enjoy having in multiples. Great job leinies!

Pours a clear copper color with a small off white head. Mild sweet malty aroma with some hoppy notes coming through. The flavor is malt, some mild hops and a mild sweetness. OK not great.
