Draft at a local. Pours a thin short lived, off white head, over a clear, amber (SRM 8) body.....nose is cereal, light malt, touch of toffee/caramel....taste is slight sweet with cereal, malts, light toffee/caramel, finish slightly tart...mouth feel medium, carbonation adds a light spritz. This meets the style quite well with a nice interplay of the malts, with a light hop addition. BJCP 7/3/13/4/6 bu11zeye (13215) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JAN 8, 2011
(Draught) Pours a clear golden body with a medium off-white head. Aroma of nuts, grain, and caramel. Flavor of nuts, honey, caramel, and grain. thirdeye11 (6162) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 4, 2011
(Draught) clear pale amber with a ring of white bubbles. Nose of spent grain, cinnamon, spiced oranges and light earthy hops. Taste of raw cereal grain, earthy, boring. Well carbonated, watery and a bit of alcohol. cubs (10714) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 16, 2010
Tasted on tap at the Black Sheep in Colorado Springs, CO. Red-amber appearance with medium size head. Nutty, amber malty aroma. Bitter amber malty flavor, a lot like many "red" ales and true at all to Märzen style. Vikingbrew (193) - Colorado, USA - SEP 28, 2010
On draft at 2nd cup. Nice carmel sweet malt aroma. Mild hop aroma. Poured a amber color with moderate head. Nice sweet carmel malts with balance bittering hops. Expecting more from the intense aroma. Medium body. Overall, a very classic octoberfest beer.

Ruddy orange as described by the label this had some very nice aromas of chocolate, plums, and malts. The taste is very bread-like which starts out good but then takes a weird turn in the aftertaste which I don’t like. Drinkability is just ok. I will still be checking for new Edge City releases from Bristol.

Thanks to Mike for this one. Dark gold body, no head formation. Aroma is sweet and malty. Grainy malt flavor, somewhat sweet, and there’s a vegetable quality in there somewhat. 3fourths (9358) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 24, 2008
Bomber from Kevin. Golden honey colored body, mostly clear. Sweet, sticky honey malt, medium thickness for a marzen, it’s oily and hoppy but not overhoppy, just a bit more than usual for the style... overall clean and simple, tastes of corn, wheat, fish (?). Not bad. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 23, 2008
