COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This marzen is made in the traditional German style but is smooth across the palate and very much on the lighter side. Nice malt aroma with a semi-sweet lingering flavor.

phaleslu (6551) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 16, 2013
Draft pint at Moerlein Lager House. Pours a clear orange-hued gold with a small off-white head that leaves some lace streaks and spots. The aroma is very light, with toast, sugar, banana chips, and paper. Flavor of toast, grass, wet hay, sugar, banana, and wet leaves. Light-bodied, with low to moderate carbonation and a sweet mouthfeel with minor balancing bitterness and a finish that dries out. Not a very strong Oktoberfest offering.

DrSilverworm (6455) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 4, 2014
12oz bottle. Bottle labeled 6.0%. Pours a clear red orange color. Thin khaki head. Few short ropes of lace. Up front, sweet darker kind of caramely toasty malts, some nuttiness, light spice. Some mild earthy hop.Dark fruit. Moderate sweet taste, light bitter. Medium body. Smooth, kind slick, light crisp lighter carbonation. Solid, straight-forward oktoberfest. Nice to enjoy with my leftover pizza / tabouli lunch.

Strykzone (4965) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - SEP 12, 2014
Bottle received in a trade with awlcordell. A clear amber pour that has just a little foam. A sweet toffee and gentle fruit aroma. Caramel malts and that fruit are tasted first. It is a little like drinking candy. Some grain, earth, and soft hop notes. Caramel grows. This is a sweet drinking beer and is definitely on the pleasant side.

12oz bottle drank out of a plastic glass in a hotel in South Dayton. Orange-brown...not much head in this vessel. Malty, smooth, clean, very drinkable for 6%. Straightforward, classic, well done. I could drink a lot of this.

Beerman6686 (4358) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 2, 2013
This one poured a darker orange with an off white head. Aroma was of caramel nuts and dried fruits. Flavor was similar, overly sweet and not toasted. Caramel bomb.

cheap (4069) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 30, 2013
From a bottle, stronger first taste. Sweeter beer with a tad of cloying. Foamy head about 1/8th in thick. Yes, probably close to 6%. Mild sweetwater smell. Stronger okto festy flavors, without being nasty. Has a tad of a kick on the cerebellum. Some co2. Finish is almost medicinal in nature.
