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

Aroma caramel, bread, cereal, dough, Appearance amber, clear, tan foam, Taste medium sweetness, Palate light body, Overall almost a coffee taste to this beer. It is definitely different from the rest of the oktoberfest beers so just for that reason I would suggest this beer to a friend

Pours a copper/ amber color, with little head. The aroma is of malt, and lightly of hops. the flavor is malty, hops, and a caramel flavor too. This beer is not the best from victory in my opinion.

RedHaze (371) - Where the hell am I?, Nebraska, USA - JAN 16, 2006
Pours a clear orangey bronze color with tin 1/4 inch head that quickly disappears. The very thin ring that’s left behind leaves only minimal lacing. Smell; nice bread dough and caramel maltiness with a mild herbal almost spicy aroma. Nice, but not as good as I was expecting. Taste; pretty much follows it’s aroma. It has a solid caramel malt presence, and a little bit of the spiciness makes an appearance. There’s also a slight hop bite in the finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, with fairly low carbonation. This is not the best O-fest by any means, but it’s still a decent stab at the style.

12 oz bottle. 12/13/15 code date. Appearance: light brown with reddish hue, clear, with light off white foam cap. Aroma: Bready and caramel maltiness. Light toast. Taste: Rich bready and caramel malt sweetness, light toast, and low hop bitterness Mouthfeel: medium to high body for the style, with a light carbonation. A little syrup like. Finish: Bready caramel sweetness lingers. Overall: A very malty sweet marzen with caramel as opposed to the more traditional toasted, bready versions. Closer to Sam Adams Ofest than tradional marzens.

fatty (363) - Perkiomenville, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 9, 2005
Pours clear amber body with medium bubbly off white head. Sweet malt aroma. Light bitter malt, metallic flavor and smooth, thin, watery palate. Not real impressive.

Pretty standard marzen. Not bad by any means. Malty, sweet, delicious. Not sure if I'd buy this over a Paulaner. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.
