COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Amber in color. This medium bodied beer has achieved its impeccable taste by balancing the roasted malt flavor with the perfect amount of hops. Having a rich textured palate with an underlying sweetness true to tradition.

Draft at Bier garden in Boca Raton. Dimpled mug. Pours a hazy golden amber with a one finger white head. Good lacing. Malty aroma with caramel and leather. Well balanced creamy marzen with great malt presence.

Love the rich brown color, but not the skunky smell. Favorite beer of the style by far, which isn’t saying much.

Poured a light brown color. Not a very pleasant smell. Skunky smell. Tastes good though. One of the better tasting Oktoberfest beers I’ve had.

Bronze pour, caramel metallic aroma. Malty caramel with bready goodness is FUCKING RUINED by the skunkiness caused by the GODDAMNED GREEN BOTTLE!!! Good beer gone bad due to the bottle not the beer itself. I’m so pissed at idiot "we know everything" brewers and their insistence of using green or clear bottles! JERKS!

Pours amber-brown bronze with a tan-white that settles to a nice coating. Just a bit of lacing. Aroma is bread, corn, malt. Taste is lager all the way with semi-sweet bready malt (a bit roasted) balanced with noble hop bitterness. This balance gives a very slight smoky quality. The mild bitterness lingers but gives way to a sweet malty aftertaste. Crisp, with moderate carbonation and not the smoothest sip - makes sense for the style. A classic that is the ne plus ultra of the Oktoberfest Marzen style and one of my fall favorites. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Une bière riche avec une mousse qui tient très longtemps et surtout une couleur magnifique, un must

kramer (4892) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 10, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear light copper body with a one finger frothy off-white head. The nose is The nose is nice toasty and sweet vienna malts with minimal hoppiness. The flavor is a bit husky below the sweet vienna maltiness, well lagered, a little lacking in smoothness though because of that huskiness. Finishes with a light bitterness followed by a lingering sweetness. Lighter bodied with a fizzy carbonation level. Not bad, but I could do with a little heftier malt backbone.

Light yellowish orange pour with white head.Aroma is full of roasted malt and grain. Flavor is medium sweet with a bitter average lasting duration. Medium body and overall a great fall beer.

On tap in Munchen. Bella testa di schiuma alta e fine di media persistenza, colore giallo oro, aroma erbaceo e maltato, al palato corpo leggero e buona carbonazione, estremamente beverina, note erbacee, luppolate e dolcezza dei malti in un grande equilibrio, viene da berne una dopo l’altra, fantastica Marzen!!

Blindprovas. Burkmajs i doften. Tveklöst. Klar och fin. Gissar på en hoffbräu eller liknande.
