nuplastikk (5785) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 27, 2011
12oz bottle. Filtered bronzed amber color with a soapy, off-white head. Mild, mellow sweet aroma, some lager tones and a faint hop spiciness. Medium bodied, malt forward, this is a pretty decent example of the style. Some orange tones that seem a little awkward, but a clean, toasty malt bill keeps it sailing smooth. Very subtle and enjoyable, but not quite a World Class example.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 20, 2014
12oz bottle, purchased from Brennan’s in Madison during GTMW. Clear red orange color. Thin khaki head, that leaves nice thicker lace. Medium body. Good smooth kind of crisp lighter carbonation. Nice full creamy mouthfeel. Light slick finish. Caramel, spicy malt. Some spicy peppery earthy hop to it, more malt driven flavor, though. Moderate bitter taste, light spicy edge to it. Light to moderate sweet. Pretty solid, enjoyable oktoberfest. Better than expected. Great with my dinner of course, but good to enjoy on it’s own, too.

esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 5, 2012
Hazed amber with a pillowy taupe head that fades slowly. Aroma of caramel, toffee, light fruit, pale malt and some noble hops. Taste in line with aroma with caramel and toffee and light hops. Ok.

madvike (3202) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 11, 2012
Bottle - Lightly hazy caramel color with a thin foamy white head. Real pleasant smell--light toffee and toasted malt. Faint herbal hops. Taste is a bit buttery malt, lightly toasted with some mild nuttiness. Real faint hopping through the finish. A bit of biting carbonation, and fairly watery. Not bad for the style, but the taste doesn’t quite live up to the smell.

jebert (500) - Watertown, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 17, 2013
Pours a nice shade of amber with a huge tan head. Nose is hoppy with a hint of malt. Fairly creamy on the palate, the taste is a nice blend of caramelized malt with a light hop aftertaste. Some bread/yeast notes as well. A straight forward marzen that pairs well with grilled brats at any fall fest.

dekester1 (355) - Neenah, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 18, 2011
Poured a nice reddish amber with a light foamy head and nice lacing. Aroma is of malts with a slight hoppy character. Flavor is of malts upfront with a nice Marzen hoppy finish which was light to moderate. Palate was decent. Overall, a nice Marzen from the folks at Sand Creek. I am guessing they use the same formulation for their Pioneer Red River Marzen style brew.

theisti (3882) - Kansas, USA - JUL 17, 2015
12 oz bottle that was left behind at my parents house at some point. The pour is a clear copper brown with a one inch off white head. The aroma is sweet nut, earth malt and a bit of grass. The taste is the sweet malt, cereal grain, a bit of cardboard and grass towards the back. The palate is medium bodied with lower carbonation and the oldish finish. Bit dull, though I am sure this is pretty aged.

Atom (2156) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 12, 2015
12oz bottle pours a clear copper/orange with a huge khaki head. Sweet caramel and tootsie roll aroma. Sweet malt taste with some drying nuttiness and yeast. Not a bad Marzen, drinkable.
