More muted than expected for a Marzen, just more muted than expected. Nearly flawless yet not enough going on. Hops and bitterness are kept well in the background and in small amounts. Not a bad beer, just wanted a lot more from it.

joeneugs (2932) - Livermore, California, USA - NOV 5, 2010
On tap at beer revolution in Oakland. Pours a clear copper color with a large orangy head. the aroma is spiced and bready. Lots of bread crust, cardboard, and a hint of caramel. The flavor is nice with a complex bouquet of spices and mild hints of fruit and cardboard/whole wheat bread. Nice beer.

doboy (416) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - NOV 2, 2010
Enjoyed this as the Monk’s Fest with Uncle Tom (he brunged it) and Uncle Steve, Brian the beer Pimp and The Master of Disaster, Drbayern. Poured a light amber color with a white head that laced to the edge. The aroma was of sweet malt. The taste was of sweet malt, but not too sweet. The aftertaste was nice and left you ready to drink more. A very drinkable Fest beer

kramer (4684) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 21, 2010
Firkin, Brauhaus Schmitz, listed as Monk’s Fest. Pours a dark copper with a minimal off-white head. The nose i sweet with some grainy and toasted malt. The flavor is just slightly sweet, a little husky and toasty malt, some decent light hops give it a bit of character. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with soft light carbonation. Pretty decent.

hero12 (180) - Minnesota, USA - SEP 20, 2010
Pours a hazy caramel color with very small white head and minimal lacing. Caramel, malt, and bread aroma. Sweet coffee/chocolate flavor. Medium bodied with very little carbonation and a very smooth finish. Somewhat watery, but not a bad beer.

swoopjones (5329) - Buffalo, New York, USA - AUG 13, 2010

3fourths (7797) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 7, 2010
UPDATED: AUG 8, 2010 weissenohe monk’s fest marzen, 500ml, bottle conditioned. a treat to find such a thing. into a ceramic mug stolen from a zoigl stube. vienna and munich malt nose (toffee, caramel, honey, vanilla - mild). yeast seems to impart some fruit-forward esters in the aroma (red apple skin, marachino cherry, overripe pear and grape). apple and grape-juice sweetness up front is held inside loosely by a medium-light body and light to low natural carbonation. I think my biggest complaints are lack of crispness (the grape and plastic sugar quality seems to mute what crispness there is) and the mild/low carbonation (like many british bottles). not that I want more effervescence in something like a marzen, but I want carbonation in a form other than lifeless. that with a crisp malt edge and a touch less sweetness would have me smitten. as it stands in bottle form it just isn’t anything close to a great beer.
