Draft. Hazy amber color with a small head. Malty nose with a lot of spice. Flavor shows some clear spicing, similar to a malty version of some pumpkin ales. It’s full-bodied for the style yet still quite drinkable.

12 ounce single bottle from Total Wine in Huntersville, NC. Color is a nice reddish copper hue with an off white head. Aroma is caramel and a light bready smell. Tastes mild and clean, not very interesting. Not bad but not one of Duck-Rabbit’s better efforts.

Bottle (355ml) from Vinmonopolet (Vika), Oslo. Good-looking, clear, dark amber colour. Inch-thick offwhite head with good retention, leaves some lacing. Nose of dusty hops, malt; the complexity increases as the beer warms up, and includes fruit, cookies, caramel, licorice - fascinatingly multilayered. Malty taste, fairly dry, well-balanced. Medium body, soft carbonation (feels a bit flat). Finish includes some sourness, but still pleasant. Very good drinkability.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a dark amber with a thin head. Aroma is malt, caramel, fruit, and some slight hops. I thought this was one of the better Oktoberfest brews so far that I have tried this season. It had a nice malty taste with hops and fruit on the tongue as well - just enough spice to remind you that it is there.

Bottle. Pours a beautiful red brown with a quick white head. Really nice brown sugar nose. Taste is slick, grainy, sweet, and really goes down smooth. Really great marzen.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from bottle into shaker. Pours a reddish gold color with a 1 finger head which rapidly reduces to a skim. Aroma - lots of malt on the nose, some spiciness from the hops. Taste - lots of caramel initially, then some biscuit notes, a touch spicy, goes back to a nice caramelly finish. Nicely carbonated, with good finish and really pretty clean. This is a really nice marzen.
