hopscotch (8549) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 11, 2004
This beer rocks! Sparkling clear, copper/amber lager with a small, creamy, white head. Poor retention, but leaves thick, creamy lacing with lots of holes... like swiss cheese. Caramel and milk chocolate in the nose. Very malty flavor. Sweet, but almost balanced-out by a very light hop bite. Medium-bodied with an astringent mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Lengthy, bitter-sweet finish. Great, world class Oktoberfest!

Aromas of bread, toasted malts and light toffee. Tastes of toasted malts, grains, bread, and very light toffee. Thinner body.

NielsenRatings (8275) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 30, 2010
UPDATED: MAY 6, 2012 Tasted on tap at the Flying Saucer in Kansas City, Missouri. Pretty light orange and translucent body for a Marzen. Sweet, deep caramel, toasty malt yaroma. Quite light, crisp, sweet, malty taste. Fairly grassy. Not bad.

Drake (7948) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - SEP 7, 2011
12 ounce bottle from Beer Run in Charlottesville, VA. Pours a clear amber color with a medium frothy white head. Decent head retention and nice lacing. Aroma of toasted malts, caramel and some fruity notes. The taste is toasted malts, stone fruits, pineapple and caramel. Medium bodied. A little oddly fruity for a marzen, but I’m digging it.
