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.

Clear honey colored brew with a creamy off-white head. Aroma is somewhat slight with notes of caramel and malt. The sweetness is there in the beginning as you drink, then it tapers off to a slight tart fruit. Finishes clean. A decent Octoberfest.

Tastes like a watered down Oktoberfest. Not the most flavorable or enjoyable one out there.

Grain and bread malts, caramel. Clear gold, small, frothy, white head. Light bitter and sweet. Sweet grain malts continue, caramel, lively carbonation, light, sickly bittersweet flavours in the finish. Below-average Märzen, palate not terribly great. Can at random hotel, Madison, WI.

Pours a clear golden yellow color. Aromas of grass, cheerios, and a touch of flowers. Flavor is kinda sweet to start, citrusy finish with some hop notes.

Not very good, fairly mild for the style, not bad per se but tasted more like a normal amber

Poured a copper/ amber hue with very little head. Smelled of malt and a bit of hops. Tasted slightly malty and a hint of grain with a mild hop presence. Overall decent but there are better Oktoberfests out there. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can. Pours clear reddish gold, small beige head, some lacing. Aroma is kinda gross, malty but also some urine and fecal notes, cardboard. Flavor is better than it smells for sure, medium sweet, minimal bitterness. Light body.

Color is amber when poured. Thin white head that dissipates quickly. Slightly sweet malty caramel aroma. Bread flavor appears then quickly goes away with each sip.

I had it from the bottle. The taste is caramel malt and bread. It’s pretty smooth. It’s a decent interpretation. It’s not anything super special though.

Light on the flavor and a bit watery, which seems to be consistent among the majority of Leinenkiugel's regular selections. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DATE TASTED: November 25, 2015 ... GLASSWARE: Weihenstephaner pilsner... OCCASION: Thanksgiving executed well and without issue... APPEARANCE: the typical dark orange body with limited effervescence but mostly clear...head diminishes quickly to a foamy eighth-inch off-white ring; lacing is sporadic webbings... AROMA: faint caramel to start; malts are understated; little traces of hops--too simple?.... PALATE: light, slick, soft body that finishes with some fizziness but a blunt, short aftertaste...definitely a drinkable, sessionable beer suited for a warm Thanksgiving such as this... TASTE: burnt toast mixes with caramel to forward a malty experience, though the taste itself is subdued and retreating...little in the way of hops, as suggested by the aroma--sweet without a hint of bitterness...OVERALL: not much to distinguish this from, say, most other fests during the season...not an insult, but notable nonetheless for not being notable... does pair with salty hor d’oeurves and is unobtrusive in its presence...
