Poured as a taster at local bottle shop. Classic oktoberfest style and very good. Nice malty flavor and full body.

0.4 tap. Red-brown white head, disappears fast. Aroma caramel candy, mats, water. Taste caramel-water. Viewing the ratings maybe I got a bad one. But I don’t have anything to add. Probably have to try again!

Red-brown-orange color; honey colored. Not a lot of carbonation but a finer of decent head. I like the color. Aroma is corn syrup; a sugary taffy-pull in the nose. The flavor is sugary sweetness, more corn syrup. A hint of sugary molasses. Very buttery smooth feel. This one isn’t really my jam; it’s what you think of when you think of a saccharine German lager.

Bottle gifted by a buddy with too much beer. Thanks Jim. The best beer is free beer, especially if I feel like rating a couple, and it’s unrated to me. Totally drinkable. Light caramel and maybe even to a bit of toffee, it’s so smooth and drinkable. This is not the beer to tell Junior to drink so he hates beer for a few more beers. Junior will say "Thank you Sir, may I have another. Beats a Bud any day.

rangerred (954) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - NOV 9, 2014
330ml bottle into a pint glass. Pours a clear medium copper with a half finger white head. While the lacing is not really there, head retention is good. Aroma has caramel and toast along with a healthy shot of wet glass. Very true to the style. The flavor doubles down on the attributes in the aroma with a very nice biscuity malt character and awesome grassy hop flavors. Moderate bitterness balances out the malty sweetness and gives this great drinkability. Overall, one of the better German Marzens available in the U.S. One of the standards of the style.

Nice mellow Marzen. A hint of banana provides a sort of ’sheen’ to the dry malt flavor.

dlihcsnatas (339) - Texas, USA - OCT 22, 2014
Copper colored brew that started with head but within seconds it fell down to a lace. Like a soda would do. Smells of roasted malt and tastes of roasted malt. Perfectly balanced to make it very chuggable. If I had a keg of this you could bet I would pull out my great big dimpled mug and fill it full many times till I was puking or falling down or both. Have been doing some comparisons on Oktoberfest brews this month and this is my #2 pick. Nice thing that the price tag is not over the top for an import.

Cervesa ambarina i amb una bona presència d’escuma, bastant dolça i acaramelada. Cerveza ambarina y con una buena presencia de espuma, bastante dulce y acaramelada.
