zvikar (4134) - Ramat Gan, ISRAEL - JUN 14, 2011
Beer of the month, pours magnificent orange with a peach to beige nice head, aroma of bread, butter cookies, vanilla, butterscotch and marmalade, flavor is acidic and metallic with some american hops, vegy off-flavors and dough, light to medium bodied, something wrong with this beer’s flavor

12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear copper with an average tan head. Aroma of malt and caramel. Taste is similar. Somewhat sweet, not much in the way of hops. Decent.

DSG (11600) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAY 5, 2011
Bottle. Beer of the month club. Hazy amber with a small white head. Aroma of malt, some caramel, some acidity and fruits (lots of apple). Sweetish-sourish yeasty flavor with some malt and sour fruits. Finishes with more sourness. Rather light-bodied. I think something went wrong here, but it’s still drinkable.

drowland (7887) - Georgia, USA - MAY 2, 2011
5/1/11. 12oz bottle courtesy Cavie! Clear red pour with a small khaki head that cuts in half but sticks. Plain aroma of malt with a hint of alcohol. Sweet malty flavor with caramel and a sort of medicinal off taste as well. Meh.

crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - APR 10, 2011
poured a clear copper color with a slightly beige head. Nice retention, but little lace. Aroma had a big malt note. Mainly caramel, but also had nice bread like malts. Flavor seemed to have s similar profile, but the sweetness of the malts seemed more dominate than the bready notes. Finish was smooth and i think needed to be more crisp. Kind of light on the tongue.

thegreenrooster (4001) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 30, 2011
Pour is a dark brown with a large tan head. Aroma is a nice sweet caramel malt. Flavor is the same, lots of heavy malt with some breadyness toward the end. It’s a marzan which not one of my favorite styles but this one has plenty of flavor.

cmc619 (501) - California, USA - MAR 30, 2011
Deep amber-brown. Minimal head that retains fine. Aroma of yeast, sweat, rubber, and a bit of toasted malt. Flavor is big, malty, sweet, and relatively hot. Doesn’t quite have the lager crispness you look for in a Marzen--in fact, very sticky on the tongue. A touch of syrupy alcohol heat in the finish. Drinks like it’s +1-2 ABV points. Not bad, but something a little strange in the nose, and a bit anti-style, if that matters.
