This beer is based on an original recipe that Adolphus Busch brought with him when he came to America. This Marzenbeir has a malty aroma and an amber-red color. Traditionally brewed for the Octoberfest

Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Medium amber, clear brew with one finger of head that immediately disappears. Aroma of light malts, maybe a hint of wet paper or cardboard. Flavor is nice but not exciting - light malts with a dry lightly hopped finish. Palate is rather thin - on par with many lagers. A competent brew and above average at that.

Drank in the morning with frostyone and I’m not really sure why or where they came from. amber pour and clear. fading head. nose bland and sulphurous light malts. Taste is bland like the nose dry, easy drinking. Not much to it.

Good taste for low end beer. Good Oktoberfest but there are better just not sure if they are as good a value.

I got this bottle as a single, but it was in a cooler. I suspect it’s from last Fall. Anyhow, It’s a good looking light amber color beer with a foamy white head and good carbonation. The flavor is malty and sweet. Mouthfeel may be on the light side, but this marzen is right up there with some of the German ones I have had. This beer is much better than the score it has gotten.

Poured into a glass mug. Pours a small thin head that disolves quickly. No lacing. Color is nice straw/dark orange. Smell is of dry malts and grain. Taste is of very sweet, dry malts. There is also a hint of floral hops. Mouthfeel is bitter, but smooth. Carbonation level is good. Overall, not one of my favorites for the style, but it was cheap so not to bad.

Nice malty aroma and taste after pouring. Then a sickly sweet aftertaste. The head actually last after the first sip. Nice lace.

12 oz. Clear copper-brown with a small ring of bubbles. Mild malt aroma of toffee, a touch of tart apple, and a hint of dry grass. Flavor is lightly sour caramel, toasted pecan, earthy leaf, and a hint of apple-raisin liqueur. Light-medium body is smoothly carbonated, a tad too watery, but has a nice little tongue tingle. Well balanced and drinkable.

Not bad for one of the majors. It was malty which you would expect from the style but, not a mass produced product. I can see it being something I would pick up from time to time.

Malty and amber colored, just as advertised! I like the carbonation in this one, it is about perfect. I’m not a big fan of malty beers, but this one is not overpowering. There is a generous amount of hops. I bought this 12-pack on sale for $4.99. Not bad for the money, though I don’t think I’d buy it at the regular price. There is a bit of sourness in the aroma, but maybe that is just a reflection of my dislike for the malty beer style.

Variety pack bottle. Aroma was mild, hoppy and slightly floral. Great pour, and the head stayed thick and present for a long time. Flavors were roasty, with cereal and grain dominant. Hopps were present in the flavor. Pleasant to the palate. I loved the quality of this beer, which for the price, is just fantastic. I am not afraid to rate this beer higher in the overall category. Its not anywhere near the most flavorful marzen I have had, but still, for the value, I will buy this again.
