A few bottles into my stein. Caramel pour with a tan head. Light toasted malt and sweet notes with light bitterness in the aroma and taste. Nice malt character. Smooth drinker. Quite nice.

tmoreau (2124) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - OCT 25, 2013
11.2 oz. bottle poured to a Czech-pils glass with a clear, brownish amber color, off white/light tan "bubbles & cream" head foam, and curtainy cling to the lacing. The aroma was smooth Munich scent, light grain, some toast, a touch of malt sweetness, and a hint of caramel. The flavor was similar, with a medium body, lively carbonation, moderate hop bitterness that possessed earthiness and some lingering quality, and supportive malt. Clean, balanced, and a very quaffable seasonal. After sampling many others this autumn, this was my favorite Marzen to date.

superspak (2200) - Michigan, USA - OCT 3, 2013
330 ml bottle into dimpled mug, best before 5/2014. Pours fairly crystal clear orange copper color with a 1 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of caramel, pear, apple, toast, bread, herbal, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance of malt and yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of caramel, apple, pear, toast, herbal, bread, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of caramel, light fruits, toast, bread, herbal, light pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice and clean balance of malt and yeast ester flavors; with nice robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a moderately creamy and smooth mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice Oktoberfest style. All around clean and well balanced malt and yeast flavors; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
