COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with generous amounts of Vienna and Munich malts for a rich full-bodied malty flavor, Dragonhösen begins as a traditional Oktoberfest lager then stealthily breathes fire with 9% alcohol by volume. Hallertau and Czech Saaz hops add balance with a mild earthy aroma and flavor with moderate bitterness.

3.1
DocJitsu (1972) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - JAN 31, 2017
Pours a clear copper with a large, bumpy, eggshell colored head. Caramel, toasted malt, and faint fruit on the nose. Richer flavors than a usual Märzen. Less fruity as well. Full, nearly chewy on the palate.

2.7
Dredd (932) - Bentleigh, AUSTRALIA - JAN 24, 2017
Subdued malt aromas, copper brown pour with thin tan head. Bready, malty palate with finish is a bit metallic with coarse boozy notes.

2.5
3fourths (9331) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 11, 2016
From tap it’s clear dark brown with a short head. Aroma is malty and boozy with dominant notes of basic caramel malt, cooked corn kernels, hot fusels and a cosmetic-chemical dirtiness. In the mouth it’s medium-full bodied, sweet and chewy with low bitterness and rough carbonation. Outright messy beer, both in design and execution.

3.8
Nekronos (4175) - Xalapa, MEXICO - NOV 6, 2016
Very good and dark. Malty and sweet. Strong in abv. Poured in sniffer at Sanford Brewing. Enjoyable to the last drop.

Big and bready marzen style. Big sweetness and booze heat. Definitely in your face. Great name.

3.4
Dogbrick (12932) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 2, 2016
Sample at Daily Growler UA. Clear brownish-amber color with a medium thin off-white head that dissipates steadily to an outer ring. Strings of lacing. Aroma of roast malt, caramel and fruit. Medium body with flavors of caramel malt, fruit and touch of hops. The finish is sweet with a malty aftertaste. Decent overall.

3.3
cards04 (2784) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 1, 2016
A tasty marzen. Pours a hazy iced tea colour. Aromas are grains and a bit of tea and herbs. Similar flavours. Tasty and easy to drink considering the high abv

northropfrye (3514) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 1, 2016
Orange body not Muchh head or lacing. Sweet grainy malty aroma. Taste is more set than sweet. Some maltiness. Okay.

3.4
hotstuff (5142) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - OCT 1, 2016
Rated on 9-02-2016 at Black Dog Pub, Fort Wayne, IN. When served, the appearance of this draft beer is a very small beige head that is fully lasting, transparent amber body, no visible carbonation observed, and no lacing. The aroma is herbal, alcohol and caramel malt. The flavor is earthy, alcohol, lightly bitter, sweet, and malt. The mouthfeel is light-medium carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. A quaffable beer that is easy drinking as there is not a lot going on with the taste of it. It is a rather basic tasting beer for the style.

3.6
thedm (6147) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - SEP 2, 2016
This draft brew from a beer bar poured a very small sized head of foamy finely sized off-white colored bubbles that were quickly diminishing and left behind a no visible carbonation slightly hazy red brown colored body and a poor lacing. The nice aroma was brown malt sweet mild hop and burnt malt. The clean mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering malty aftertaste. The ok flavor contained notes of mild lager mild dough mildly vinous sweet brown malt and dark malt. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.
