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

Malty, with the bread notes one would expect for the style. A little dried fruit as well. Not bad. Prost!

Bottle, pours a clear amber/copper body with off-white head. Lightly hopped aroma with bread and toasted malts. Taste is similar with some nuttiness and spices.

BeerRenter76 (303) - Texas, USA - JUL 13, 2015
Originally rated on 9/14/14. Usual amber body with a slight haze, thick cap that leaves some spotty lace. The aroma is of sweet, syrupy bread crust, and roasted malt. Taste is of all of those elements, and there is even a touch of spice. Overall a decent marzen, slightly above average."

Yellow straw with white head. Malt and candy sweet nose and some lemon with some mustiness.. Citrus in the profile, hops a bit cloying. Citrus hop flavor. A bit too much separate pieces not coming together here.

About what one would expect. Victory well known for their hops tackles a malty style and hops ensue. Oral this beer is a solid fest style beer plus dinner aggressive hops. I’m not sure it works overall, but it’s a decent stab at the concept.

chinchill (3117) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 22, 2015
12 oz Undated bottle served in Peroni glass (from notes). Clear copper with a creamy tan head. The head has decent retention but leaves little lacing. Good malty aroma with a matching flavor! Although I thought the flavor was better than the nose. Sweet malt flavor with enough hops to produce a balance sweet and bitter. Mouthfeel is OK, but more carbonation seemed desirable, A marzen that is a bit above average.

Poured a deep amber with moderate head and light lacing. Aroma was of slightly sweet malts with a slight fruity background. Taste was primarily malts upfront with a slight tanginess and mild/moderate hop finish. Palate was decent. Overall a nice Octoberfest/Marzen.
