COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ein rotgoldenes Märzenbier wie es die Tradition verlangt. Würzig im Trunk mit einem ausgewogenen Hopfenaroma. Der Bügelverschluß auf diesem Bierklassiker lässt Erinnerungen an alte Zeiten wieder aufleben.

UPDATED: DEC 27, 2008 500 ml shared by lithy at the Christmas tasting. Clear amber with a small but enduring head that left some spotty lace. Grain and honey aroma. Similar flavor, plus some apple and light alcohol. Light-medium body finishes slightly dry.

Suttree (5118) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 21, 2008
From a snazzy flip-top bottle. Brownish orange, nice foamy white head. Faint aroma, but seems kinda biscuity or bready. Surprisngly rich palate. Very bready, with a peppry finish. Some sweet notes as it warms. Not bad, if a bit on the simple side.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - DEC 12, 2008
Draft at capones. Pours an amber body with a white head. Light nutty with caramel malt light earthy hoppiness. Simple and sessionable.

BeerBunker (709) - Burbank, Illinois, USA - DEC 11, 2008
Pours dark orange with almost no head. Moderate carbonation. Smells more like a beer fart, than an actual beer. Fart aroma is of lemon, spice, yeast, and malt. Luckily it does not taste like a fart, although it is very bad. Taste is of stale malt, yeast, dirt, caramel, and citrus, all with a really dry and offensive finish. All around, this beer is awful and very hard to put down.

CanIHave4Beers (3210) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - DEC 6, 2008
Pours a very lightly hazy deep copper color with a big fluffy head that seems to be receding fast, leaving a little bit of lace. Aroma is very autumnal with some good roasted malt and some yeast. Wow I love the flavor on this, this is a remarkable representation of the style and I will look forward to drinking this often. Plenty of caramel flavors, good noble hop presentation, this is remarkably well balanced. The flavor starts off with the most pleasant sweetness that quickly turns to a refreshingly dry flavor. This is sharp on the palate, presumably from the hop presentation, but it is no less well rounded. One of my favorite traditional Oktoberfest beers!

dm9831 (1512) - Monee, Illinois, USA - DEC 6, 2008
bottle from binnys beverage depot, orland park. clear light copper color, slight white head, hint of lacing. head disappears to tiny bubbles around rim. not very appealing looking. nose is musty, earthy, grassy with a trace of sweet malt. airy. flavor is musty malt, with a slight creaminess. as the beer wars, there is a touch of leather in the taste. medium bodied, dry finish. inoffensive, mild stuff.

That1Guy (1892) - Greeley, Colorado, USA - DEC 1, 2008
Crushed with Jakebra. Had high hopes for this one. Unpleasantly dry and completely unrefreshing beer. Smell and taste of nast and dryness. I pray we got a bad bottle.

Pint sized swing top bottle. Label "German Marzen beer- hearty, amber-colored, malty and finely balanced lager that is refreshing and filling all at once- was the original staple of Oktoberfest celebrations. This rare, traditional and very tasty "liquid bread" is brewed at the beautiful monastery at Weissenhoein the green wooded hills of Franconia, Northern Bavaria." Yes...it is all of that. I like this one. Very drinkable.

SSSteve (3751) - - NOV 21, 2008
clear orange with no lacing under...no head. drab boring malty aroma. flavor is malty with some butter and light toffee. a terrible looking beer with hardly any aroma and an average taste. i don’t agree with the masses.
