Ungstrup (29208) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 6, 2006
A dark amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet with nice hoppy notes. The flavor is sweet malty with strong notes of caramel, as well as lighter notes of hops. OK, but hoppier than Your usual Märzen.

fiulijn (14380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 6, 2006
Amber color. Some malt and cereals aroma. Medium mouthfeel, little residual sweetness along with malt and cereals, ordinary bitterness. Boring for me.

hopscotch (9042) - 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

Sammy (8524) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 14, 2006
brandyish initially, molasses, then dark malts with some dark malts. Some of these sweeter ingrediants comprise the aroma. Dark color. Above average carbonation. Comes together like a malty ovaltine tasting. Smooth beverage and drink. Bit of bitterness on aftertaste.

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.
