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 is a good octoberfest beer. It is light, crisp, wheat beer with citrus hops

FreshHawk (596) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - SEP 9, 2010
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2010 Bottle. A - Light, clear gold color with a slightly above average sized, thick, sticky, creamy, pearl white head. Good retention leaving a foamy, sticky layer of lace. S - Good amount of doughy, bready aroma with a spicy and floral hop aroma on top of that. Some grassy hops as well. Very German smelling, but not very much like a märzen. T - Similar to the nose with a nice bready, doughy taste making up the backbone. Pretty sweet flavors in the background. Good amount of spicy herbal, floral and grassy hops. Some faint citrus flavors and a hint of mineral taste. M - Lighter side of medium body with a good amount of carbonation. Crisp and slightly drying. D - Easy to drink beer with a nice mix of sweet bready/doughy malt flavors as well as spicy, hoppy flavors. Very refreshing and crisp. Notes: Not really like a Märzen, but a tasty beer. Definitely German tasting with German hops and bready/doughy malt taste. Overall another tasty beer from the brewery, but like the weizenbock (Vitus) it doesn’t really seem to fit the style too well.

12oz bottle pours a very light amber with white head. Aroma is malty alot of carmel toffees upfront. Flavor is a bit sweet balanced with that import bitterness a bit watery. Body is a bit weak as well as colour. Finish is sweet

rayg1 (584) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - SEP 16, 2007
Pours a golden yellow color with a small thin white head, more a ring than an actuall head. Aroma is sweet of hay and wheat and a touch of caramel. Taste is also fairly sweet biscuity taste to it with some sticky sweetness to it. Very refreshing beer light sweetness is balanced by a nice hop profile. Actually I liked this Marzen better than most because to me, this has a bit more hops than many others and just rounds and smooths out this beer. I think this is a bit underrated and this is a style I don’t even really like but I would certainly drink this again, tasty.

Bottle, 500mL. Home. A pale golden beer with few bubbles ; medium white head witha poor retention. Grainy aroma, herb. Medium sweet, light dry bitter refreshing. Medium body, watery texture, average carbonation, short herbal finish. Overall, average drinkable german beer.

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

dmschefke (571) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - SEP 24, 2012
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.

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.

S_Side_Smitty (567) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - OCT 12, 2011
A really strong sourdough aroma and a light golden color. The scent is intriguing. Strong hoppy flavor that mellows quickly. I keep getting a honey or mead-like flavor in the mid-palate along with light yeast. It ends smooth. Not bad & easy to drink.
