pours a surprisingly light straw-gold, thin head. aromas of caramel, honey, green apple. flavor is malty, slight hoppiness. a little fruity, a little metallic. not my favorite fall beer, but not bad. finish is clean and coppery. kidmartinek (5007) - austin, Texas, USA - JAN 8, 2009
Pours orangish light amber, but its cloudy and has a tall head thats nice. Aroma of sweet citrus and orange. Flavor is balanced with wheat malt and hops and has some citrus sweetness added. Mouthfeel is over carbonated a little bit but not too bad. Bite lingers on the tongue in the finish. A very appropriate beer for the time of year. rudolf (2360) - Buffalo, New York, USA - DEC 21, 2008
Bottle, at Goodbar beer club. Very clear copper, thin white head. Nose is honey malt, a bit of tea, some tobacco fruitiness. Flavor is honey malt, a bit of hop crispness. odd sweet fruitiness in the finish. blipp (9902) - La Mesa, California, USA - DEC 11, 2008
Bottle. Pours gold with a white head. Sweet aroma, a little bit toasty and a touch of hops. The flavor is very similar. Well balanced but a bit on the bland side. Pretty good nonetheless. jcwattsrugger (12559) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - DEC 7, 2008
on tap-pours a thin retaining off white head and amber color. Aroma is medium malt-sweet, herbal hops. Taste is medium malt-sweet, herbal hops, which offsets the sweet, then some floral. 3.0

Poured a light amber color with a generous head that faded to a thin coating. Somewhat malty intro that leads to a mildly carbonated mouthfeel that finishes with a bitter to sweet follow through. Some floral notes precede the hoppy conclusion. A fair to good beer. Radek Kliber (7501) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - OCT 21, 2008
Bottle 355 ml Shag (3059) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - OCT 21, 2008
Appearance: light amber with hint of gold , thick creamy large head 3+
Nose: off grainy nose, golden malt with farm feel, slightly spicy 4+
Flavor/Palate : medium bodied. Soft mashed like malt feel , malty yet with mid short live. Vienna like in character. Solid, drinkable but not best in style.
Call me a looney tune but I expect my o-fests to not be golden in color. Well this is. The aroma sucks with some caramel notes but alot of corn. The flavor is malty with some caramel, corn, and oddly grassy notes. It’s like they tried to doctor up a pale lager to call it an o-fest. Pass! bigrond (1499) - factoryville, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 16, 2008
very boring. A little watery, a little bland. Is not a good representation of a marzen. t does go down real smooth though.
Pass on this one, I wish I did. SuperDave (2555) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - OCT 15, 2008
Clear copper pour with a small fizzy head. Sweet roasted malt and nuts in the aroma. Flavor is similar, with roasted malt and nuts. A bit thin on the palate, but not a bad brew.
