just arrived 4 hours ago. bottled less than three weeks ago. good overall presence. nice hop-tinged aroma, nice deep brown color and orange tinted head, good flavors. tilted toward the hoppy end of marzens....not sharp, more top end lingering flavor hops, almost no aroma. malt solid, not assertive. good beer, not exactly my idea of an ideal oktoberfest.

JDBaker11058 (1935) - Maryland, USA - OCT 25, 2015
appearance: clear coppery orange, with a finger of creamy beige head that shrinks to a collar; good curtains of bubbles linger. aroma: caramel, toffee, raspberry, cherry, toasted nuts. taste: very sweet caramel and toffee up front, then the fruitiness from the aroma comes through clearly; then comes a bit of earthy, almost herbal bitterness. finish: the malty, fruity sweetness comes back at the very end, but there’s also a hint of minerality that comes out. notes: This is a good oktoberfest. It’s a little rich and fruity for my preferences in the style, but it’s undeniably good. Only thing I wasn’t wild about was the slightly astringent, herbal minerality on the back end.

hayduke (4928) - Eureka, California, USA - MAR 7, 2015
Bottle from a friend in Wisconsin. Pours pour from the 12o stuffy bottle red amber with an off-white head and decent lacing . Nose of rich roasted caramel malts. Medium body and very smooth lager mouthfeel. Flavor hows toffee and a bit of floral hoops., Finishes earth and dry, .A very nice Marzen in the German style. I liked this one a lot.

rondphoto (4059) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JAN 25, 2015
bottle @ Jungle Jim’s / Eastgate OH --- Clear amber brown color, beige head cover, streaks of lace. Taste is caramel toffee and malt that becomes more earthy and bitter on the swallow, then moves neatly to a lingering sweet finish. Nothing notable here, just as it should be: comfort beer for nippy autumn evenings.

HonusWagner (2093) - Florida, USA - NOV 11, 2014
A sweeter interpretation of the style, a bit muddy flavorwise but tending towards general caramel maltiness. Lacks the complexity of the Full Sail Marzen, but still a really good version of the style.

On tap. Very good Oktoberfest, malty, thick, and sweet. One of the better American examples of a Marzen.

popephred (266) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - OCT 17, 2014
Poured this lager cold into a Samuel Adams glass. The pour yielded a small off-white head with a red-brown,cloudy, body, with minimal lacing, Note of spice are dominant in this brew, with a metallic aftertaste which linger throughout the tasting. A medium body, though any sweetness that could be had from the malts is drowned out by the previously mentioned aftertaste.

wow, refreshing, zippy, what a night, what a beer! Here I am, living, being alive! What a treat. I’m watching Gross Point Blank and sipping this sweet nectar. Ambrosia. Oh what a joy. A long down diluted with an evening treat.
