Tap at Back Road Fall Fest. Light caramel malt , bready yeast, and vegetal aroma. Light amber with a small off-white head. Bready yeast, vegetal-fruity flavor with a spicy finish. Medium body and carbonation. Very easy drinker.

clear amber color, moderate white head, some lace. nose was mildly musty malt with a hint of hops. flavor was leathery, malty, with a hint of hops. medium bodied, clean finish. i think shoreline was very close to the style, which i must admit does not appeal to me. a curtsy to flossmoor station mugclubber george for providing the sample.

tap at the brewery - Pours clear amber and smells of caramel malt. It tastes of sweet, toasted caramel malt and some mild hops along with just a touch of dark fruit. It’s medium bodied and tasty.

Tmoney99 (10468) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 8, 2007
Draft sample at Back Road Fall Fest 2007. Poured clear amber color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with fair. Moderate toasted sweet malty aroma. Medium body with soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of short duration. My expectations where met with this brew.

From the tap this pours a clear golden amber with a modest off-white head with minimal lacing. The aroma is mildly sweet, toasted grains with a touch of caramel and a very slight hop bitterness. Some alcohol enteres into the flavor, the caramel is more pronounced, and the hops take on an earthy quality. Not bad.

MoDog (927) - Griffith, Indiana, USA - SEP 30, 2007
On tap at the Backroad Fall Fest, and served in a shaker. This beer poured a clear, bright orange color with a small, frothy, off-white head that slightly lasted. Some faint lace was left behind. The aroma was made up of mild caramel, bread, and some light citrus. The flavor was caramel, bready yeast, and a touch of citrus hoppiness. The mouthfeel was light to medium-bodied with a decent dose of carbonation. A solid beer that is true to style.

TheEnemy (562) - Chicago, USA - JAN 13, 2007
On tap.
(Notes from October 2006.) Pours a deep fiery caramel-aburun. Thin head disssipates quickly. Fairly faint but pleasant malty caramel aroma with a bare hint of hop bitterness. Flaor is a big burst of caramel and misplaced fruity esters. Some diacetyl as well. Somewhat lacking in malt sweetness -- definitely pushes the dry end of the fest style. Thick, slightly sticky palate fits the style. Right idea that misses its mark.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - DEC 17, 2006
Draft at the brew pub. Clear copper color with thin white head. Smelled of plum, sprucy hops, and biscuity malt. Seemed to be kind of a strange combination for a marzen. Noble hop and biscuity malt flavors. Not bad.
