6 oz sampler on tap at their Camp Hill brew pub.
Poured a hazy brown with a tan head that settles and left light lace. Aromas of honey, caramel and some fruits. The flavor had roasted malts, chocolate, honey and a hint of spice.
A regular "chicory explosion here!
Medium body and a roast malt aftertaste.
Rather smooth and light which belies it’s appearence. DiarmaidBHK (5899) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 7, 2011
Pours brown from tap with a head that vanishes as soon as it hits the glass. Nice maltiness on the nose. Taste is a bit bland. Not a lot of flavor on the tongue. Carbonation is medium. Clean finisher. Starts strong but ends in a whimper. PapaSkeetSkeet (1010) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - AUG 6, 2011
Full amber with white head. Aroma is neutral lager. Medium bodied, lighter carbonation. Flavor is fairly sweet and pleasant for an octoberfest, clean and appetizing. Yum. nike (966) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 2, 2011
Poured a reddish color that had very little head. Sweet caramel taste, not much balance, no lacing on the glass. On style for a marzen, little hop taste to it. The beer was smooth, drinkable. Nothing great about this beer, but not all bad. Not one to go out of your way for, but drinkable. Thanks D! NJJereme (387) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 17, 2010
Pint at ABC in Harrisburg. Pours a surprisingly brown color (looked orange on the menu) with a light, off white-head. Thought it combined the signature flavors of a stout and lager and not so much a marzen. Light-medium bodied. Again, combining the features of a lager and a stout. Not bad.

Dark reddish brown, fizzy head, no lacing. Sweet caramel, herbal, biscuity, nutmeg aroma. Mild taste, chewy malt dominant, very light citrus hop. Sour finish. Overall, pretty subtle and average. BiddleBrau (1238) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 17, 2009
Red with thin white head. Stuffy nose prevents quality analysis of aroma. Caramel sweetness, decent hoppiness. roder60 (1289) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 3, 2009
Had on tap at the Gettysburg location. Pours a clear dark brown amber color with minimal offwhite bubbly head. Aroma is sweet caramel and slight dark fruits. Flavor is very sweet and malty with some fruit presence and slightly dry bitter finish, but not much. Overall, decent but not great. gsmitty80 (2130) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 8, 2009
This was a good Oktoberfest. Good malting and mouthfeel. Best beer that I had all night at the brewery. It was also the freshest batch brewed. machfive55 (358) - Columbia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 28, 2009
Poured a dark amber with little head, on draft at the brewery. Fairly malty beer with little hop presence, clean and pleasant malt character. Nice malty brew that is perfect for a fall day.
