Probably the best lager/amber I've had to date. Aroma ismalty, very much a cereal grain smell, with very slight hints of fruitiness. Pours a dark amber color, high carbonation with no floaties at all. Head starts out healthy and beige, but dissipates very quickly. Flavor is pretty much the same as the aroma, has a suprisingly nice finish. Palate is a bit thin.

Chocolaty, bready, fruity aroma. Smooth, sweet chocolate and fruitcake flavor with hazelnut and a toasty grainy dryness in the finish. Pretty tastey for an amber lager.

Nice golden/amber appearance. Definitaly inticed me a bit. Head was a nice tan color.Left a nice ring around my glass. Very tasty. Real toasty malt, caramel, very smooth. Did have a slight aftertaste. But not bad enough to change my mind overall. I enjoyed it and would enjoy drinking it again

JPDIPSO (5519) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 7, 2003
Dark copper color with a moderate light tan head. Pure malt aroma with hints of toastiness. Initial malt sweetness with caramel, toastiness, and a slight earthy quality. Smooth and enjoyable. finish has a touch of bitterness and a touch of alcohol. While mass producing their beers has not done them well, still one of my favorite fall brews.

Pleasant brown to dark blonde appearance makes it a beer you want to drink.First impressions are of sweet malts with a hint of citrus. After a while you realise that your instinctive liking for this beer was right-one to linger and love.

thedm (5548) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAR 18, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2003 Very nice aroma! It is mild and non-offensive. It pours a nice head of fine to large bubbles with a brown/amber very clear body with no yeast floating in it. As the head decreased, it left a nice lacing around the side of my glass. It has an initial taste of bubbly carbonation on the tip of my tongue. It has a slight aftertaste which is mostly mild. All in all I really enjoyed the brew. I could drink it all night. It is an extremely nice beer.

UPDATED: OCT 30, 2015 Tasted blind: This is tastes like it is not so fresh but is still prety decent. It’s lighter in color w/ a sort of pilsener-ish hop character. Some oxidation keeps it from really shining but that is imported German beer for you.

Original (4.1):Pleasant orange amber. Huge head with appetizing lacing. The bottle says "ale" but I’ll be damned if this ain’t a lager like every other Marzen on the face of God’s green earth. Fresh, malty, tutti-fruity bubblegum aroma. Rich, thick palate is perfectly matched with carmelized malt sweetness. Some apple/fruity notes as weel. A kiss of hops in the finsih rounds things out nicely. Smooth, well-balanced, and delicious.

TheTsunami (162) - Arizona, USA - MAR 14, 2003
Draft. Deep brown color with a white head. Aroma was malty, very sweet. Flavor started sweet got sweeter then relaxed back into the original sweetness. No real hops flavor noticable.

jazz88 (2655) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAR 6, 2003
Bottle. Dark golden to amber color with a tan head. An aromatic toasted malt aroma with a full malt flavor. Typical marzen but lacks a spice of oktoberfest.

Voivod (304) - Como, ITALY - MAR 4, 2003
Amber colour, the head is quite thin and creamy. Sweet maltness in the aroma, very delicate, with hints of corn. Pleasant malty flavour, light and fresh, with a moderate sweetness. Sweet even the aftertaste with just an hoppy touch. Pleasant and drinkable.
