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

bottle from whole foods. medium amber, very little head. aroma is very bready. medium/light bodied, flavor is smooth and caramel malt-y. finish is sweet, but i guess that’s the style. still, nothing that great.

Sweet aroma with distinct cola nose accenting cereal malt base flavors and robust German hop flavor charge. Bitter enough to counterbalance slight sweetness, though still very clean flavor. I also get touches of cherry and smoke (not muddled as from yeast, but flavor notes from specialty grain I’d guess). It is large and festive, pushing the style. Hard to rate appearance, since I drank from bottle during World Series Game 1.

12 oz. bottle from Tyler’s Bottle Shop, Carrboro Ar: Aroma is bready along with some caramel notes. Light grassy hops. Ap: Pours a clear copper with a small, white head that diminishes quickly, leaving spotty lace. T: Very nice caramel and breadiness up front. Obviously malt-centric, but this one isn’t overly sweet and the finish is well balanced with some mild hop bitterness and a bit of grass/hay. P: Medium body, maybe a tad overcarbonated for my liking. O: I think this is a very enjoyable Fest. Clean, simple flavors but enjoyable on a cool fall night nonetheless.

Copper. Good malt bready/caramel aroma with some hops. Taste is moreso malt. Well balanced.

The aroma was malty with a nutty caramel presence of Munich and Vienna malts. Spicy hop notes were present and strong caramel. The beer poured into the glass clear golden amber with a white barely there head. The flavor was malty with a metallic note which was quite strong. The flavor was very one-dimensional and had caramel and a bit of low spicy hop, but not much more. The finish was dry with just a metallic note into the aftertaste. The body was medium and the carbonation was low. Not a well crafted beer, skip it. 12 ounce bottle. Enjoy by Feb 24, 08.

draft. pours clear brown orange, minimal head. aroma reminded me of honey. light, clean honey. nice malt and grain flavors in the taste. dry, light bitter finish. a solid lager. nothing too complex, but they did well on the malts. my wife liked this one a lot.

PWalk (337) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 13, 2004
Bottle: A deep amber when poured with a quickly dissipating off white head. Very spicy at the nose and malty on the palate. Finishes well with a nice sweet aftertaste that I couldn’t quite figure out. Looking forward to it on tap.

Had it on tap. Good to have Märzens back again. It’s a sweet, malty example. Very tasty, great fall beer.

From Growler. Bought @ Victory Brewing. Pours nice golden copper color. Nice thick foamy white head, that nicely laced the glass half way down. Aroma is malty and sweet. Flavor is malty, with some caramel hints for sweetness, with a touch of grassy hop flavor comes through in the back. Slight spice taste. Nice balance. Could easily have a couple of these. Full bodied. Thick mouthfeel. Carbonation just right.
