zach8270 (3424) - Henrietta, New York, USA - SEP 17, 2009
(bottle - 22 oz) Clear amber color with a frothy white head. Aroma is sweet and bready with some dry resin. Flavor is bitter and sour at the beginning with a stale and dry middle and a bitter finish. Not as sweet as I was expecting.

redlight (2316) - Orlando, Florida, USA - SEP 14, 2009
22 oz bottle. Honey malts, fresh bread, malty with grassy resiny hops. Pours a golden amber with a thin white head. Very nice marzen, caramel malts, honey, nice mouthfeel, good body for a marzen, nice grassy earthy hop flavors. Not bad at all.

KyotoLefty (6299) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 13, 2009
Draught at Rogue Ales Public House, Portland. Faint caramel and amber malt aroma, thin amber color. Very light malt flavor, close to tasteless, actually. Not impressed at all!

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - SEP 13, 2009
Ultra-fresh bomber. Pours a clear, medium-golden hue. A small, foamy, off-white head settles to a thin ring, leaving spotty lacing behind. The aroma is primarily toasty, with notes of fresh cereal grain and honey being balanced well by wildflower and grassy hops, with traces of pepper. Flavors are similarly structured, a bit bland, but well balanced. The toasty grain notes are lightly sweet, and the subtle, floral hops and light spicing provide a nice counterpoint. Light bodied and easy to drink, the palate lends sessionability, but lacks in oomph. Overall, it’s a pretty decent Märzen.

presario (4608) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 12, 2009
22oz bottle. Dark golden amber. Decent head and a lasting solid white skiff. Aroma has a nice malt but a surprising strong spice character; grainy but also an earthy cinamon/nutmeg presence. Flavour starts out with that same spiced grain note which carries through on a good palate. If you inhale with your mouth before you drink you get an essence of spice. Traces of vegetable and strong malt. Kind of intriguing with the spice edge to this style. The 4.2% ABV is interesting although the Alberta-added sticker says 5.6%.

502Che (999) - @, CAMBODIA - SEP 12, 2009
Bomber into pint glass. Rich golden body with small off-white head that doesn’t hold too well. Smells sweet, nutty and fruity. Flavor is the same with a bit of hop flavor in there too. Simple, but very balanced and smooth. Medium body with low carbonation. Overall: nothing special, but a very solid brew.

Hangover (1058) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - SEP 10, 2009
Dark golden pour with a thin white head. Aroma is typical fest with a nice vegetable tilt. Flavor is light malt, vegetable and slightly toasty. Crisp finish, lingering bisquit/bread. Nice, simple o’fest.

dchmela (2631) - Orlando, Florida, USA - SEP 8, 2009
Pours dark gold with a thick white head. Light hopped, big malt aroma. Nice complex malt taste with a light touch of noble hops.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - SEP 8, 2009
Bottle at lithy’s Septemberfest. Pours gold with offwhite head. The aroma is cornhusk, sugar, and slight chalk. The flavor is corn, chalk, and some chemical notes. Not so good.

kkearn (1165) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 7, 2009
22oz bottle. Pours translucent yellow amber, capped with a thin white head. Aroma of honey, grain, bread and some vegetal character. Flavor is too sweet, with notes of grain, honey, and malt, with light floral hops and vegetables entering towards the finish. Medium to thin bodied. This is OK, but nothing I’d purchase again.
