(bottle) clear orange amber colour with a medium tall white head; aroma of stewed fruit, then honey; somewhat unusual, intense flavour- bit chemical, with a long medium bitter finish

Caytinator (943) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAR 29, 2014
Pint on tap. Dark gold color, clear, light head. Aroma is disappointing, not what I was expecting for the style, kind of flat. Taste is confused, I think this beer has an identity crisis--it’s simultaneously a not good example of the style and not good in general. I don’t know what it is, frankly. Hoppy but not fresh really. Get a Paulaner Oktoberfest Märzen instead.

deyholla (6633) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - SEP 27, 2013
On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has bread through out that grows in sweetness with a bit of cereal. Flavor is a combination of bread and cereal that are slightly sweet.

Lubiere (9999) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 22, 2013
A lightly hazed golden marzen with a thick white head. In aroma, crisp grassy malt with light fruity notes, OK. In mouth, a nice crisp biscuit malt with fruity esters, good Saaz hopping, light solvent notes, decent. On tap at brewery.

TheAlum (5701) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - SEP 5, 2013
Sampler flight on tap at the brewery (Las Vegas, NV). Pours a nice crisp orange gold hue, near transparent with some gentle frothy offwhite head. Dies to a ring, laces ok. Aromas are gentle sweetness, vienna malts meet a gentle toastiness, touches of carmelization, and gentle earthy hop, spice. Odd cereal raisin play I get sometimes. Initial is lighter end of the fold, cereal and straw, gentle carmelization. Earthy hops, gentle spiciness. Gets more dry. Middle is a bit toasty, carmelized and bready. A bit plain and predictable, but quite drinkable. Backend is a bit dry and faint metallic and grassy twang. Not bad.

Fantomasus (204) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - AUG 29, 2013
Pours a cloudy amber with an off white head that dissipates. Aroma is nice, probably the beers best characteristic... Very fresh. Notes of: caramel malt, spruce and hop resin, earthy yeast, some alcohol, and hints of butterscotch, clove, and vanilla. Taste is fine and fairly balanced, mostly sour/bitter with a nod towards sweetness. Lingering bitter finish. One of Teneya’s better offerings.

Bomber from Hayduke. We had it together via facebook chat. This is lightly hazed deep honey gold. It has a big rocky beige head that settles very slowly and leaves a little lacing. The aroma is fruity and spiced. The first sip shows a subtle beer but a complex and tasty one. Fruits are tropical and some citrus. Bread is tasted with cinnamon and noble hops. Later a little hot pepper slips in. At the finish it becomes like an English Bitter. The hops move in more with the spices and malts stepping back. Noble hops and the spice they bring are in the finish. I like this. Subtle and complex. On a 95 F degree mid summer day this Oktoberfest worked well.

hayduke (3365) - Eureka, California, USA - JUL 16, 2013
This was shared with Strykzone on Facebook Chat. Pours a clear ice tea color with a good sized white head and decent lacing. Nose is bready malts, with some light hops and spice. Medium body. Smooth creamy mouth feel. The flavor is of roasted malts, spices, and some floral hops Noble hops. Light bitterness in finish. Easy drinking on a hot summer day here in Idaho.

The nose toasty & herbal. The taste starts with vanilla sweet malts, that balance well with cracker dry grains. The end is full of spicy, peppery & resinous hops. The finish is bready and dry. A much dryer & hoppier interpretation on the style.
