COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Seductively smooth, this medium-bodied amber beauty is akin to the great Oktoberfest beers of Munich. All German hops make this lager true to style. Patient cold aging makes it wonderfully smooth. In bottles September through February

A little heavy on the German metallic flavor. But my objection to that faded about 1/2 way through the bottle. Great color. Really tastes like fall. I enjoyed it, but I don’t know that I really like it.

A nice copper, faded leaf color. A real fall looking beer. I can’t believe they are alreading selling it this early in the year. Well, it is the end of August, and this is Atlanta, and we have had a record breaking month as far as the heat is concerned. All tha aside, the beer is transparent, has a weak caramel, and crystal malt smell to it. The malt is definitely noticeable. A creamy and smooth beer, but boy does that malt shine through. Wow, very malty very very little hop flavor. The "kiss of hops" on the deScription must be a butterfly kiss or something, because this lacks hops. Smooth, malty, and not up to the Victory standards.

Amber pour with a small light brown head. Caramel and vegetable aroma. Medium bodied. Carbonation is about right. Malty taste. Dough/bread. Standard ofest. Finishes a bit thin and watery.

Holy crap that is a delicious Oktoberfest. No aroma (shame...this would have been in the 4s). Pour was the darkest amber I’ve seen in an Oktoberfest...no head though. Taste was huge...buttery malt and caramel on top of great carbonation and a sweet semi dry finish.

eh, nothing special. i should have read the "patient cold aging" part before i cracked a bottle open the same week it was shipped.

12 oz bottle. Very malty and fruity. Not a big fan of this one. But worthy of another taste and a re-rate in the future.

jehoey (765) - Shippensburg, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 4, 2007
on tap at Market X shippensburg: Aroma was faint but had many nice caramel malt notes. poured a rich amber in color with 2 fingers of dense head. Flavor was smooth as can be with very nice toasty notes especially as it warmed, and there was a nice balance of spiciness from the hops. palate was medium. Overall this was a very enjoyable lager and probably the best Marzen I’ve had

Bottle; poured an orange amber. Not much head. Aroma is typical for style; some caramel and fruit. Flavor was different at first; a lot of fruit and nut. Alot of sweet malt and a dry finish. Pretty standard, but probably above average for the style.
