12oz bottle in improper glassware - nose is floral and caramel with toast. Easy to drink. A little too sweet. Go Big Blue!!!! Makes me think of a mild doppelbock.

Clear medium amber pour with a red hue. Very nice head and lacing that lingers. Very slight nose of sweet caramel malt. Light medium body and well carbonated. The flavor profile is laid back, as a marzen should be. It has a very nice balance of caramel malt sweetness and flavor with just a hint of hop bitterness. The carbonation yields a crisp finish identical to the flavor profile. Thirsty Dog is becoming one of my favorite breweries. Another outstanding offering that is true to style.

Light biscuity aroma. Clear, medium brown pour. Flavor is stale, malty, and earthy. Filling mouthfeel. The malt flavor is not pleasant.

alobar (2615) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 4, 2013
Clear copper pour with a creamy off-white head. Aroma of bread and some caramel. Rather tasty with caramel, molasses, and grain balancing the sweetness. Creamy mouth feel. Very nice beer!

12 oz. bottle thanks to queenholly. Part of a side-by-side-by- side tasting. Clear copper pour without any lace in a lager glass. Roasted grains, fall leaves and German yeast in the aroma, nice. Flavor is toasted caramel malt, yeast, and light herbal hops. The caramel malt sweetness lingers a bit in the finish. A little thin in the body. Pretty ok and really is what the style should be.

Bottle to half-pint glass (shared with the Mrs.). Looks good for the style; a transparent caramel with fluffy off-white head. Smells sweet, malty, and doughy. Tastes like it smells with a good mouthfeel. A solid example of the style.

The pour is surprisingly cloudy. Roasted malt and a hint of orange in the aroma. Very tasty! Full body, a lot of butterscotch followed by a touch of citrus sweetness. Hops provide a dry and slightly bitter finish. Really yummy. Immediately one of my favorite Oktoberfests

12 ounce bottle. Aroma us a sweet caramel with a hint of molasses. Deep malt character that is well balanced with a tiny hint of spice in the back end. Palate is fairly thick, a really good American oktoberfest.

Pours a clear copper with a thin white head. It has a slight spicy aroma with hints of earth and hay. It tastes medium sweet with a hint of bitter. The body is thin with crisp texture. I’m not a fan of Oktoberfest beers and this one doesn’t really help. It isn’t a beer that I’ll remember or even try to recall.

Trying to get in some marzens before the season is over and had never tried this one before. Pours a clear amber with no head. Faint aromas of spice and malts. Flavor is par for the course for marzens. Lots of malts and a bit watery but tasty.
