Bottle-nice toasty aroma of barley. Copper color with a medium, foamy head. Taste is malt that is crispy and not overwhelming. Some nutty flavoring on the finish. A nice understated Oktoberfest. Total wine.

12oz bottle at Bleu Cafe awhile back. Amber pour with a small khaki head. Sweetish aroma, enough hints at roasted malt to balance it out, mild chocolate even, lots of biscuit. Nice flavor - surprisingly nice. Slightly sweet, biscuity, bread, caramel, touches of chocolate. Surprisingly nice.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Light grass and hop spice, mild lemon citrus, pleasant caramel/bread malt nose, hint of pump at the back. Brilliant light amber-copper body with a frothy off-white head. Crisp malty medium body with light hop prickle and a little veggie, has workable caramel malt and a hint at the darker side of Maillard. Sweet but not too much, with low bitterness, just enough to keep you coming back for more.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2013 Undated 12 oz bottle served in Peroni glass. Poured clear copper color with a creamy tan head. Quite lovely but the head is short-lived. There is a lasting ring that leaves decent lacing.
Very attractive aroma with a matching flavor. Fine sweet malt flavor with enough hops to balance sweet and bitter. Excellent Marzen!
