The Duck-Rabbit Märzen is the lightest of our Germal-style lagers. This is a beer designed for outdoor autumn festivals! Soft malt flavors take center stage here. This one is subtle and beguiling.

Thanks Matt for bringing some of this back with you over Christmas. Clear bronze color with a moderate off-white head. Scents of lightly toasted malt and caramel. Clean flavors, with a bit of sweetness in the form of caramel and toasted malt. Mild noble hops in the background keep it clean. A very nice interpretation of a classic and still one of my favorite styles (when done well).

Kind of a wishy-washy attempt at a Marzen, with malts that come across simultaneously too sweet and too fleeting, and a mild bitter backbone that peters out much too early. Not bad, just dull. Pretty, though.

12 ounce bottle. Pours an amber / copper color with a medium-sized creamy beige head. Aroma is toasted malt with caramel and brown bread. Upfront, flavor is sweet toasted malt. Hints of caramel and toasted bread. Light bodied, yet flavorful. Floral hop finish. Overall, a bit light for an Oktoberfest beer.

snoworsummer (4802) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 9, 2016
Draft. Pours clear copper with a very thin head. Tastes like toffee malt, dried fruits, nutty, and earthy. Light body and low/medium carbonation. Smells like dried fruits, toffee malt, nutty, and earthy.

Tap. Pours clear copper. Aroma is caramel and bready malts, nuttiness, very faint floral and chocolate notes, and faint lager yeast esters. Flavor is smooth and sweet with nice caramel malt backbone and soft earthy bitterness. Medium body.

Sweeter, but less bready style of marzen. Good toffee and vanilla notes. Easy drinker.

Has a bit of a smoked malty aroma. Taste is a malt spice mix. Decent brew.....

TAR (2685) - Marshall (Asheville area), North Carolina, USA - SEP 17, 2016
Clear russet. Quick white foam holds merely a wispy collar. Defective nose of DMS, metal, medicine, grape jelly, alcohol, papery malt and candy apples. Loose and fuzzy carbonation deposits a foamy residue on the palate. A strong slickness compounds the oppressive sweetness, as notes of grape jelly collide with poorly cloaked alcohol and gummy-candylike sugars. DMS muddles things, as the incessant sugars continue to punish the tongue. Unrefined malt character brings to mind instant iced tea spiked with malt syrup, and exhibits a profound lack of definition, texture and vividness (evidence that not even a single decoction was employed). Hint of wet paper worsens things. Notes of red licorice, alcohol and Red Delicious apple elevate the sweetness to medicinal levels in the wet and syrupy finish. The usual flaws found in this style are all present here, especially in regards to attenuation and cleanliness. It’s a full-bodied, insufferably sweet sugar bomb with zero nuance and nothing remotely appealing. One sip was all I could handle before down the drain she went.

Tallahassee, Fl. - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - 12 oz bottle. Dark copper pour with a tight khaki colored head that fades after a while. Pleasantaroma of caramel and vanilla. Solidly sweet flavor of molasses, caramel and a bit of toffee. Very full bodied Oktoberfest. Mouthfeel is pleasantly thick and somewhat creamy. Pretty solid.

EBD 11/15. Clear amber pour. Normal head volume, lacing and retention. Typical marzen nose of bready malt - caramel and biscuit. Underneath is a light fruity ester - apple or apricot. Light medium body that is quite smooth in texture. Slightly below normal carbonation with a hint of effervescence in the middle and a noticeable amount in the finish. The flavor profile is quite outstanding. It begins with a rich wave of malt - toasted biscuit and caramel. Sweetness is perfectly balanced and never becomes cloying. The middle has a very subtle bitterness and an equally subtle noble hop earthy flavor. As the finish approaches, the fruit notes are evident as it becomes more grainy with a subtle nut aspect. The finish is a slow fade of slightly sweet noble hop flavor.
