It’s our way of honoring our ancestors and the beer they loved to celebrate with. So raise your stein to tradition and enjoy this utterly classic brew.

argo0 (11635) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 6, 2006
(12oz bottle) Medium off-white head atop a clear amber body. Aroma is medium sweet, caramel, cookie. Taste is medium sweet, caramel, some cookie, light metallic. Light-medium body, light acidity. Not bad, but lacks the characteristics of what I think of as a marzen.

bhensonb (11489) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 4, 2010
Bottle from Total Wine in Roseville, CA. Pours light amber with a foamy off-white head. Sort of a burnt caramel aroma. Medium body with frothy carbonation. Flavor is pretty much scorched caramel with a little grassy hop. It’s drinkable, but it’s not to die for.

BeerandBlues2 (10039) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - DEC 13, 2005
12-oz. bottle. Pours brass with loads of tiny fast-rising bubbles and a small diminishing off-white head; some falling lined lacing. Light caramel malt (meal, cereal) and cardboard yeast (horse blanket) aroma and faint fruit (apple) hops. Light roasted caramel malt sweet yeast flavor with apple hops and a sour to bitter finish. Light to medium bodied and smooth, very drinkable palate.

hopscotch (9489) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 28, 2005
Bottle... Clear, golden lager with a small, creamy, off-white head. Excellent retention. The malty nose is full of butter and caramel. Well-balanced flavor is mostly bland with just a hint of caramel carrying over from the aroma. Medium-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Crisp, lightly bitter finish.

adnielsen (9449) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 23, 2012
Bottle @ home picked up at Wilbur’s Foco. Clear dark orange appearance with an off white head. Sweet caramel apple, floral, light grassy, fruity aroma. Fairly sickly sweet, light veggie, tangy, grassy flavor. Fairly off and a waste of time.

Drake (8981) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - OCT 26, 2010
12 ounce bottle opened 9/16/10. Pours a clear copper color with a medium white head that dissipates fairly quickly. Aroma of toasted malts, faint fruity notes and grassy hops. The taste is toasted malts, caramel, faint berry-like fruits and a nutty, grassy finish. Medium bodied. Decent.
