Lot of malt in this one. I found the color to be darker than expected. Clear orange-gold with little head. Taste was adequately bitter and a touch of sweetness (floral, maybe?) . The general aroma had a skunkiness I didn’t care for but othern’ that it was pretty good stuff. I definitely liked it better than the michelob marzen.

Malty... in... your... mouth.
Duff: Now, Homer, we’ve developed this additive that makes beer super, super malty. Care to try it?
Homer: Wait a minute, will this erase my memory?
Duff: No, not at all.
[Duffman prepares a hypodermic needle, and injects Homer. He’s immediately knocked out]
Thankfully, my memory isn’t erased either. Wait, what was I writing?

Malty aroma mostly of caramel. Pours dark amber color with a small off white head. Flavors of caramel, toffee and roasted nuts. Very drinkable. Overall an average Marzen, nothing wrong with it but nothing really stands out either.

Draft at the brewpub. Pours amber with a thin head. The aroma is malty sweet. The flavor has caramel, nuts, and butterscotch. Not bad.

hopscotch (9388) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 24, 2009
Draft... Mostly clear amber lager with a small, creamy, white head. The aroma offers cool-weather notes of roasted nuts and caramel. Medium-bodied with fizzy carbonation. Nicely balanced. Caramelly with good roastiness - also, a little tangy. Short, crisp, clean finish

UPDATED: SEP 30, 2008 Poured an amber color with a white head. Aroma was pretty bland but sweet. Flavor was malty and a bit fruity but still nothingf impressive by any means

Tap at Barcade. The darkest marzen I’ve ever seen. Very dark brown, chocolate-coloured pint topped by a thick off-white head. The aroma is quite rich and sweet. Toasted malt, lightly herbal/spicy maltiness. Lots of cola/root beer like flavour with an assertive toasted rye component. It’s almost kvass-like. Warming brings up more herbal components and a touch of roasted chicory. This isn’t a marzen by any stretch of the imagination, but it’s a tasty brew nonetheless.

medium brown with nice white head. flavor is low on the malt and hop but the yeast contributes a nice fruitiness to the beer. not bad

Draft at D’s Six Pax & Dogz. Pours a medium amber, thin, off white head. Aroma is carmel and sweet. Flavor is malty with a touch of carmel notes, maybe some hops, but not much.
