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!

I was surprised to drink this Christmas Eve. My brother had a nice selection in the beer fridge. Golden Marzen with a few large bubbles floating in the foam. German O-Fest in all its average glory.

On tap at Maxs. Clear golden in color with a little white head. Hoppy and malty aroma. Caramel notes. Grainy malty and hoppy flavor. Citrusy notes. Crisp and clean tasting. Dry finish. Medium bodied. Nice beer.

12 oz. bottle, suggesting this is an “export” version. That and the very light pour. Oddly, some floaties in the bottle, unusual for a German beer, I’d think. So we have something indistinguishable from a pale lager. Smell is kind of fusel-like. Well, this was an “end of code” special. Taste shows just a little bit of extra malt to it, but mostly seems gassy and hints at adjuncts. Maybe the stuff they pour in Germany is better than this, but this sample aptly demonstrates that “Reinheitsgeböt” is now just a suggestion.

Amber yellow colored pour. Nose: corn and grass. Taste: Bit of plastic, apples. This is not good.

BMan1113VR (7914) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 12, 2008
Bottle thanks to ilovedarkbeer. Pours with White head that fades and a hazy yellow body. Not a Marzen in my mind. Aroma of grass, corn and butter...again not to style. Taste is wet dog and diacetyl. Light carbonation and buttery mouthfeel.

A light blonde with a thin white head. A very mineral lager, with light caramel. in mouth, a classy lightly sweet and fruity lager, very mineral. Medium bodied. Flour City brewfest, August 15 2008.

Hazy yellow, thick white head, nice retention. Off / iron taste in palate, dry light hoppy finish, simple and boring lager.

Banana yellow with a small white head. Aroma of malt, toasted malt, dust and skunk. Taste of malt, nuts and toasted malt. Finish is sweet and off. Pretty bad example of the style.

Crushed with Jakebra. Soft fruity nose coming out of a cloudy, pee-colored beer. Confused. This brew is pretty aight, though one would assume the "world’s oldest brewery" would know a thing or two about beer.
