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!

Very gold. Grassy and slightly skunky hops. Very thin, and not tasty. Not much of a good thing.

Pours a brassy gold with just the slighest hint of red and orange. White frothy head, thin, but long lasting. Aroma is wet grass, clay, vegetable hops, and hydro peroxide. Not all that enticing, but hell, its German. Taste is almost like water, but with a bit of acid and malt near the ending, with a hint of smoke. After another drink, seems watery with a hop dry ending. Tastes almost like somebody boiled hot dogs in water, added a little hops and alcohol, and bottled it. For a brewery with this kind of history, I’m disappointed they couldn’t make a better festbier.

12oz. Probably the lightest Maerzen I’ve ever had, but still delightful. Fluffy white head on the poor with very light copper body. Great carbonation that makes this very refreshing and easy to drink liters of. Fairly simple but good cereal grains and some decent hop on the finish that helps the lighter body. Could easily be fooled into thinking it is a pilsener.

grainy malt aroma and flavor. light floral spiciness to it. crisp and easy drinking, a bit too light

I’m surprised at the low percentile. This seems to have a decent mix of cereal grains with its caramel malt character. Obviously, this one is geared towards mass drinkability for this time of year. That crispy dry malt flavor reminds me of the more mainstream beers but there is some hoppy assertiveness underneath.

Tap at Toronado. Typical Oktoberfest beer. Fairly light in color, with a lot of grains and hops. Some malt component. Easy drinking , session beer, the proper beer for the Fest.

This Marzen pours an orange gold color from a 50cl bottle. Medium sized white foamy head, good retention with nice lacing. Aroma is grassy and citrusy. Light bodied Marzen. Malts are grassy and sweet. Hops are earthy and floral. This is a VERY light tasting Marzen, it is much more a Bohemian pilsners than a Marzen. It has very little toasted malt flavors and more hops than I would expect. Still it has a nice balance and a very full and round mouthfeel. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet

Pours golden with a little white head. A little lighter in color than expected. Aroma is very malty and slightly toasted. Flavor is malty with some backend bitterness to satisfy. Very satisfying. This would be a great session beer as it is easy to drink.

Light hay aroma with a touch of citrus. Pale golden color with white head. Flavor is sweet initially with a bitter duration. Duration is fairly long and enjoyable. Touches of lemon, caramel, and hay. Light creaminess on the palate. Well balanced and fairly enjoyable.
