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!

This hardly resembles a marzen and isn’t really something I would come back to. It’s gold, it’s much more bitter than it should be, very grassy and astringent.

Popped a bottle. Delicious, refreshing, slightly spicy and peppery. A little on the lagery flavor side, but very nice.

bubblehouse (541) - louisville, Kentucky, USA - OCT 3, 2014
Good and malty. Weak aroma and a little light on tastr but still a descent flavor. Good not great.

Bottle: Not a bad little beer. Very drinkable on a hot summer day, but nothing too special.

smcolw (530) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 23, 2009
Huge white head. Leaves ample lace. Crystal clear. Straw color--perhaps light for the style. Surprising earthiness to the smell. Also, slightly skunky (despite the brown bottle)--no date on the bottle. Slightly sweet. Partially dry, but with sweet undertone; is that possible? Round mouthfeel with a neutral amount of carbonation. The flavor has some sour elements that peak at the swallow. The aftertaste has some definitive peppery hop. This is a superior Marzen in many ways.

GKillian (525) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - SEP 25, 2010
Pours straw with thick white head and foamy lacing. Notes of straw and hay. Balanced taste with a slightly bitter finish. Crisp.

chmurarz (518) - Legnica POLAND, POLAND - JUN 4, 2007
looks like pee, but the head is very nice, creamy almost, aroma is sweet, mild and maybe yolk, flavour is bitter and hoppy, acidic, good quality, lacks malt

gearbike (512) - West Bloomfield, Michigan, USA - SEP 23, 2008
Light yellow from tap. Was severed in a big old mug which suits this beer well. It is light with just a bit of sweetness. Not much more or less make it ejoyable and very drinkable.

UPDATED: FEB 29, 2008 This beer did not meet the level I had hoped from this brewery and while I kind of like it, it does little for me. It is golden with a medium off-white head that lingers a bit before thinning to a ring and wisps. The aroma is grain, grass, and pine. The taste is similar, with some decent body and definite maltiness, plus a strong, persistent, if moderate pine-grassy hop bitterness. It is somewhat enjoyable and does not lack flavour while it has a somewhat intriguing & lively palate, but the bitterness is too piney and a little unpleasantly sharp and tends to overpower the malt too much. The end is very dry and a little too sharp, although I really enjoy the basic character and flavour. I’ll drink it and like it but would prefer others. To me this seemed a lot like a very dry, bitter, stronger pilsner and it is not really what I expected.
