On tap at 515 in Santa Cruz. Clear amber pour with a nice fluffy khaki head. Nice malty and grainy aroma, grains and biscuits with a grassy spicy hop profile. Flavor is bready malts, toasted grains, and caramel with a lightly citric and grassy hoppiness that takes over in the finish. A very full-flavored, well-balanced lager. Super drinkable. adrian910ss (2575) - Doylestown, PA, USA - NOV 3, 2010
On draft at Capones. Pours a clear coppery color with a medium sized off white head. Aroma of candied malts, biscuits, citrus and hops. Taste is much the same as the aroma with a tangy citrusy feel. mkobes (2142) - paramus, New Jersey, USA - JAN 19, 2009
On tap at Maxs in Baltimore. Hazy orange in color with a off white head that left a nice lacing on the glass. Hoppy malty aroma. Malty caramel flavor. Floral spicy notes. Medium bodied. Finish is spicy. Sweet tasting. Drinkable. Thorpe429 (5035) - , Illinois, USA - DEC 1, 2010
On tap at Capone’s.
Pours a medium brown with some rusty int. Nice off white head and moderate lacing. Smell is a bit plain with some doughy malts and hints of herbal hops. Taste is better as the malt becomes pronounced and picks up some slight caramel flavors and lots of bread. Hops are of the earthy, herbal variety. Mouthfeel is nice--light to medium body with good carbonation. Good drinkability and one of the better Marzens I’ve had, which seems to be happening more lately.
Serving type: on-tap

Draft at ebp. Pours a slightly hazy medium amber with a dense and creamy tan head. Caramel, gingerbread, and fallen leaves on the nose. Creamy medium body--amazingly dimensional presence. Toast, nuts, caramel, gingerbread and dry leaves on the mid palate. Long toasty dry finish. Great forward power to the flavor profile, but beautifully harmonious and approachable. This one’s in that sweet spot.

I had this on tap at the Vine St. Pub and I would have liked more info about it suhc as whether it used fresh or wet hops. Based upon the name I assume it must. The color was dark orange and oily on the top, sticky lacing too. The flavor was really minty and herbal hops, I was intrigued. I swear I also tasted licorice too. This was good and unlike any lager I’ve had.

Tap at Blind Tiger. Had no complaints about this beer. Good flavor and aroma. thirdeye11 (6160) - Dallas, Texas, USA - NOV 20, 2010
(draught at Dallas Gingerman) hazy yellow-orange with creamy head. Nose of sweet grain, nice hoppy touch, caramel. Taste of light earthy grapefruit, some chocolate malt, toasty grain, and a tinge of bitter at the end. Medium to light in body but creamy. Some orange flavor also. Great Oktoberfest. mar (5417) - Dallas, Texas, USA - NOV 23, 2010
On tap. Deep amber with a cream head. Toffee caramel raisins and faint bread on the nose. Nice palate flavor is definitely caramel and toffee, bready finish. Not bad at all Ferris (15403) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 21, 2014
Draft - Bready malts with a bit of caramel. Light clear amber with a thin white head. Caramel, spice and a bit of bread. Spice is nice and the bread is in check.
