Pours a clear orange light golden with a thin white head. Aromas of biscuit, toast, cellar, some mild grassy notes, and slight caramel sweetness. Flavors are clean and simple with some toastiness and a bit of sweet caramel malt and basically no hop profile. Mouthfeel is med- and slightly watery.

Drank from the bottle. Not much of an aroma, but I don’t know if the bottle affected that. Flavor is sweet caramel malt. Really tasty.

From 2 11.2 oz bottles, poured into a dimpled mug; o, my goodness gracious, a most drinkable beer, this.
Forgot to mention the nifty label on the bottle. A great pic of beautiful bier garden maidens, marching (no doubt towards the thirsty hordes) with steins, money bags and smiles. Again,

12 oz bottle into a mug. Pours a dark clear amber, with a moderate head which quickly fades into a disc on the surface. Nose is dark malt and caramel, with bread notes. Taste follows the nose, and is predominantly of medium roast malt with a touch of sweetness. the finish is short, with a hint of hop astringency. A very enjoyable session Oktoberfest.

Dark gold to copper pour with a thin off white head. Aroma is is loaded with toast, cereal and bread, along with some floral and light spicy hops. Flavor is very cereal heavy up front, then some biscuit, a little caramel, and floral and planty hops. Light to medium body, medium carbonation and neutral to slightly chewy feel.

2006: copied from BA. These modern Marzens, well, they are not the same as the old ones, are they?
20 Brown .5 litre bottles, best before mid 07.
No real aroma from my bottles.
A good pilsner maybe, a good marzen, no.
A pleaseant enough beer, but why are all the main Munich brewers numbing down their Marzen beers? It couldn’t be anything to do with cost and time could it? Surely not!
