COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
AUTUMN - Traditionally brewed to celebrate the harvest season, this reddish-brown lager has a rich caramel character and a long flavorful finish. Its delicious malty sweetness is nicely accented by a slightly fruity bouquet and a mild hop flavor.

Pours reddish, hazy brown with a foamy tan head. Scent is peppery caramel. Taste is malty, caramel...pepper in flavour as well. Some Bread. Nice, straightforward Marzen......the spice gives it just the right edge.

A nice caramel color body with hints of red to it. A nice tan head that had nice retention but no lace. Caramel malts dominated the aroma, but there was a slight spiciness to it in the back. Flavor had a good malt profile, nice sweet caramel malts which had a nice almost pepper finish in the end. A nice smooth finish, light bodied and great session beer. Although it was mostly one-dimensional the beer was pretty good.

12 ounce bottle pours an amber color, aromas of bread, caramel, light hops, some honey, and light earth. Flavors follow suit, not the best to this style, but ok overall.

Originally reviewed: 10/23/09. Poured into my conical pint glass. Pours a clear rusty orange with a very fizzy ivory head on top. Fizzles to nothing quickly; leaves little-to-no lace. Smells of toasted bread, caramel, and light fruity esters. Big full body on this one. Still retains a nice crisp quality to it though. Carbonation level is moderate-to-high. I really like the flavor profile of this one. There some nice bittering hops in there, but it mostly consists of a full bready mouth, with touches of honey and caramel. Light grainy aftertaste that is pleasant. I really dig this. I wish I could get it around here.

Pours DEEP copper color. Dark for an OKT. Aroma is that of being on a brewery tour...pure malty heaven. Taste is malty and bready. Hops are very subtle. Creamy and fizzy. Drink it cold.

TheAlum (5909) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAR 10, 2012
Pour on tap at the Reserve Tasting at the brewery (Glendale, WI). Pours a rich copper hue, a light glow with a rich orange copper glow, a decent frothy beige head atop cakes and laces ok. Sticks around pretty well, cakey. Striking hue. Aromas are sweeter biscuits, toast, and a distinct nuttiness. Mellow spice, yeast, and earthy hops. Touches of caramel, bready malts. Initial is lighter end of medium bodied offering mellow sweetness, biscuits, toffee. Gentle nuts, toast, and toffee. Touches of spice, earthy hops. Backend is crisp and mellow toast, touches of toffee, spice, earthy hops. Mellow spice. Just a touch sweet, but a lighter body than I expected for that sweetness. Solid, but a bit odd. Could use a touch more hops, but the body is pretty nice. Mellow earthy, toast and nut. Solid.

Bottle pours burnt orange-amber with an off-white head. Aroma is somewhat sweet with notes of caramel covered nuts, spiced apple, dates, and a touch of earth. Flavor shows the same with a nice balance between toasted malt and dried fruit sweetness that leads into a lightly earthy finish.

Lemke10 (824) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 29, 2012
I bought a single bottle of this from Woodman’s in Janesville, WI for $1.79 in Fall 2011. Pours a medium brown color with slight head. Scent is malty with some spices in the mix. Taste has a lot of spices like cinnamon, clove, and other roasted spices. The texture is fantastic with a clean finish that leaves the tasty spices lingering. A great brew!

vikingguy (836) - Chaska, Minnesota, USA - DEC 30, 2011
Hazy amber-red color with foamy white head. Spicy sweet malt aroma. Typical Oktoberfest flavor profile...spicy, malty...notes of caramel and bread dough. Also a tad woody and maybe a hint of vanilla. Medium body. A quality Marzen.

Bottle from Jeffs. Pours a somewhat amber color, aroma and taste of sweet malts. This is ok.
