COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The beer is a classic Maerzen - malty yet well balanced. A touch stronger and just a hint darker in color compared to what is being served at Oktoberfest in Munich. Our fest bier has a tale and tail of its own. The name for this traditional Oktoberfest beer is Bavarian in origin and translates as "tail of a squirrel".

Cloudy, copper pour with a soapy, white head. The aroma has some light bread. It has a light, watery texture with average carbonation. The taste is mildly sweet with a slightly dry finish. I was a little disappointed with this beer because everything else from UCBC is great.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours orangish with a white head. Taste sweet, carmel. I thought this was pretty good. I would definitely drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Part of the sampler pack. It poured a brownish color with a white head. The aroma was of leather and toasted malts. It had a medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. The taste was of sweet notes with a nice sweet finish of moderate duration. Not bad.

On tap : Pour is fairly clear golden copper with an average white head into this glass - I admit I was expecting something traditional but much more than this offering. The nose was butternut, caramel, minerals, and a mild hop presence. The flavor profile yielded a moderate mouthfeel, caramel and a traditional grain presence, but the center is lacking in character and flavor really - it finishes with mild hop flowers and some more grain presence, with a lingering sweetness near the finish.

Rich toasty malt nose. Moderate hop bitterness. Lingering drying sensation. Malty but not rich. Decent. ---Rated via intercellular device

Pour is a clear copper with a small tan head. Aroma is some cereal grain with a dry cracker. Not really much aroma. Flavor is some caramel malts and a bit of sweetness toward the end. Even though I’m not fond of the style this was still just ok. Light body and light flavor.

seymour (1323) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - OCT 12, 2012
Tasted on tap at the brewpub. It poured a nice orange color with a little chill haze, long-lasting white head and lace. Grainy, caramelly, nice marshmallowy and vanilla pils malt, noble hops, freshly-baked French bread, light fruitiness, bubble-gum, faint banana and clove. Malty with a nice tangy hops balance and drier than expected finish. Medium body and carbonation, lingering candy sweetness. True-to-style, only more so, and overwhelmingly German in character. Tasty and comforting.

One liter stein at their Oktoberfest. Had the pleasure of meeting Florian while having it. This was clear and orange hued with a nice frothy head. This brought out flavors of grain, soft fruit, gentle fruity hops, and equally soft hops. A bot of ceteal. No spices were noted and hops tended to flourish with warmer temperatures. Nice.

Pours orangish amber with a clear white head. the aroma has smooth marzen traits with lightly toasted caramel and it’s a bit grainy. Medium body and it is more crisp and husky than most in the style and has mild semi-sharp carbonation. The flavor starts out very dry and grainy and is not as smooth as most marzens. There is some spice and mild toffee. The finish is husky and spicy. Decent beer, but not what I expected.
