Just a great marzen. Slightly metallic aroma is the most off-putting thing about this beer. Easy body that goes down smooth, just slightly thick enough to keep me interested. Fantastic session beer. It should be noted that I love octoberfest beers.

Typical Marzen brew, a bit more sugary sweet than most with some roasted malts. Lots of caramel and honey tastes. A low hop profile with some light fruitiness added. Med-to low carbonation with some light yeast in the finish. I really must try these German Brews straight from the brewery some day... im guessing the long trip doesnt do them much good.

Pours a nice copper with a bubbly head. Lively carbonation, bready, some mild frutiness. Nice hops in the finish. Maybe a little too light. I would have liked some more malt in this one.

Pours an awesome dark amber color with hints of ruby with a very nice finger’s width head. Smells spicey with hints of honey and malts and earth. The aroma pretty much matches the taste in a great way. It is full bodied and a great representative of the style. Awesome.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Rich malty aroma full of biscuit. No hops in the aroma. Amber, clear appearance. White head with good retention. The flavor is malt forward with nice bready graininess. The mouthfeel is medium and creamy with a semidry finish. Overall an excellent example of the marzen style.

Bottle. Perfectly clear amber with a thin white head. Aroma is very malty, nutty, caramel, with some grassy hops. Taste is mild-medium sweet, mild bitter. Finish is lightly dry/bitter with some spice. Medium bodied, well carbonated. Nothing spectacular, but I could see drinking a few of these at a Biergarten in Munich.

500 ml bottle into stein. Clear copper with thick head but no lacing in my ceramic stein. Aromas are heavily buttered biscuit, floral hops, and caramel. Flavors follow with early malt sweetness and late mild bitterness. Light to medium bodied, dry finish, moderate carbonation. My favorite Oktoberfest marzen.
