COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A full rich bodied, hoppy, seasonal lager. Especially brewed for the Festbier season. This beer truly represents the Bavarian way of celebrating. Deep gold color, great mouthfeel and lots of flavor. Prost!

much lighter than i expected in body and taste. grass hops and grain in the aroma. very similar to a pils in some ways. taste is some good caramel and bread to match the light but defined hops in the finish.

Bigsilky (327) - Charleston, USA - OCT 21, 2008
A touch lighter than I’m used too. Probably the lightest, goldenrod, marzen I’ve ever seen. Malt nose is laced with a hop spice that seems to find a tone that hums smoke. A delicate smokiness/sensation, very clean. Hop oils are present on the palate and play well into the soft and refreshing finish. Not what I would have expected but well made and balanced. Blindly I would dub thee a Czech Pils.

hombrepalo (1936) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 21, 2008
12 oz bottle. The aroma is sweet corn malt with grassy hops. The appearance is pale gold with a medium head. The flavor is like the aroma but with a touch of citrus and a hint of soapy bitterness. The palate is thin but not to the point of being watery.

Radek Kliber (6675) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - OCT 19, 2008
Bottle 330 ml
Appearance: perfect show, clean classic gold with snow white large white cap. Great lace placed on glass. 4+
Nose: Light meadow like hop aroma, fresh and clean, light golden malt as base.7+
Flavor/Palate : Soft full bodied Marzen. Soft well prepared malt base frequently found in Helles and Czech Pilsners. Light alcohol burn with slight refreshing, balancing hop profile. Higher Plato helles. Very nice sample.

WISEGUY572 (1374) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 19, 2008
This is the "new" fest tyle, more of a lager than a Maarzen. Pale gold, drinks like a Pils. You know the beer without tasting it ... slightly floral, slightly metallic, and, at least for me, slightly disappointing.

joeymacaroni (309) - Wagontown, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 12, 2008
drinks like a pilsner. really good. pours deep straw-gold with a thick white head. aroma is a little metallic, a little funky...mostly though, it’s a spicy, floral and bready aroma. light honeysuckle. taste is awesome; great balance between the maltiness and the spicy hop character. clean, spicy, malty finish. light carbonation, medium oiliness.

SeanMacGC (334) - Dublin, IRELAND - OCT 12, 2008
Draught. Archetypal lager. Pours clear brass, and very, very hoppy on the nose and palate, with little or no head on the pour.

DrDavid (957) - Johnson, Vermont, USA - OCT 9, 2008
(Bottle). Sweet bready aroma. Yellow body, white head. Clean semi-sweet malty flavor, some hay and herbal notes. Clean finish.

JohnnyJ (4911) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 7, 2008
Pour is a clear gold/copper color with white head. Roasted malt, caramel, biscuits, hops, and a hint of peach.

Gurst (338) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - OCT 2, 2008
Very light, orange color. Weak fizziness with the sweet malts go well together. Alcohol apparent in end. Some light peach and coriander flavor in the end too.
