Bierkrug (2132) - - JAN 16, 2014
500 ml botttle in Garmisch, Germany. Pours a nice golden color with a full foamy white head. Aroma is a fresh malt and hops and very fine. Taste is a smooth sweet malt and very smooth and frothy. Palate is an excellent smooth sweeter beer.

BadAprilia1000 (327) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 23, 2015
Pours a crystal clear brown color with a good white head. Aroma is caramel, sweet candy, light hops, molasses. Taste is caramel, malt, butter and toffee. Very drinkable beer, one that would be best sessioned in the fall. Very good, not a huge beer but very well done.

bottle @ Jungle Jim’s / Eastgate OH --- Clear amber brown with a 1" beige head, waves of lace. Aroma of caramel malt. Taste is malt with caramel that glides into a carbonated swallow with a minimum of growth, then very light hops assure balance. Quite simple, but one of those brews I can enjoy as a go-to (no hop) beer any day of the week.

Sugram (93) - Tartu, ESTONIA - NOV 21, 2014
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!

williamherbert (1350) - Syracuse, New York, USA - NOV 20, 2014
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 (987) - 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.
