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

UPDATED: OCT 26, 2009 Thinly bodied and poorly extracted malt. Not the most refined Märzen out there, sadly.

Pours with a substantial head. Glowing orange/amber color (rather eerie), light in body and flavor. Good malt presence, hint of caramel, but mostly an average concoction.

BBB63 (6474) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - OCT 30, 2003
Thanks Pabobcat for the brew. Copper hue with a frothy tan head and good lace. Aroma is malty with hints of caramel, nuts, dark bread, slighty piney hops, earthy yeast and minor spice. Smooth and balanced taste with a of toasted malt and aromatic hop tone. Some fruitiness and spice also detected. Thin to medium-bodied with a soft mouthfeel. A good fest beer but nothing outstanding.

a minimal head, nice brown color, not much interesting going on here other than the color. It is the best fest beer I’ve had but I’ve only had two.

DialSquare (3523) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 22, 2010
12oz bottle from Liquor Loft. Clear amber-brown pour with a thin white head that leaves a ring. Aroma is light malt, hay and honey. Sweat caramel malt taste with toasty grain and some apricot. Texture is medium and a little flat. Finishes a sticky sweet but smooth enough. Not my thing.

This was alright, copper orange colors. Malt all the way through, very little hops in aroma or taste. light bodies. it was smooth but just tasted of german malts and was one dimensional.

Tripplebrew (778) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - SEP 14, 2011
Pours a golden copper with very very little head - just a light white froth that promptly dissipates. Aroma is earthy - dry leaves, bread, and some caramel/cereal mix. Flavor is toasted malts, very earthy bread and a minor hint of nutty sweetness. Body is light with active carbonation.

rugbydude05 (478) - Bridgewater, NJ, New Jersey, USA - OCT 2, 2011
12 oz bottle, pours a dark golden color, no real head. Aroma when poured cold is very non-appealing and almost metallic-smelling. When warm, definitely a sweet maltiness is present with some vegetable charater. Taste is very subtle and light, just mildly sweet. Very little bitterness. Body is light with quickly fading carbonation, very mild sweet finish. Very objectionable when consumed cold but not bad at room temperature.

Draft at ncbc. Pours a clear dark amber with a loose creamy tan head. Mild artichokey nose, mixed with old wet leaves and stale tobacco. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Artichoke and old wet leaves on the mid palate. Neutral finish.
