This was one of my favorites in the marzen vertical sort of thing we were doing at the pre Guvna departs GA tasting. A malty and bready aroma. An orangish/brown apperance with nice head and good lacing on the glass. The flavor was fairly dry with some citrus fruit mainly orange peel and more bread showing through. A nice one. jasonp (1581) - Ashburn, Virginia, USA - OCT 23, 2005
Dark clear red with a medium white head. Nice aroma of kilned malts, bread and noble hops. Flavor has notes of caramel, grain, toasted malt, euro hops and a touch of grass then ends a bit on the bland side. Moderate sweetness, moderate hop bitterness. The body is medium and creamy with lively carbonation. No lacing or head retention really. Solid, but I think Brooklyn can do better. Pernille (518) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 23, 2005
Dark amber color. Fresh, malty aroma. Flavor is mostly malt with a metallic tang. Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - OCT 21, 2005
35,5 cl bottle. No yeast in bottom. Reddish brown colour with a weak lance head. Aroma of malt. Very smooth flavour of malt and some hops. Not much bitter and dry. But overall a very easydrinking beer. This beer is little away from German style. WISEGUY572 (1377) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 20, 2005
Nose nothing special. Appearance best part of the beer for me. Dark golden copper color, small off white head, leaving good lacing. Taste not quite what I expected. Sweetish without being sweet, a touch of malt, a touch of hops, not much there. Mouthfeel is dry and chalky. Finish is ... well ... I don’t know. Licorice? Clove? Something I did not expect to find in a Marzen. Despite their description, a bit more hops would not have hurt.

(on bottle) Not exatcly to style, huh? Amber, clear colour and a disapearing white head. More carameld than light toast and most def. not with a high drinkability; too hard roasted and bitter/burned finish. braudimusprime (75) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 18, 2005
Pretty red color with sweet, bready aroma. Taste is largely yeast and malt with minimal hops. Somewhat watery too. Pleasant but maybe not up with Brooklyn’s best stuff. Aurelius (5335) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 18, 2005
Decent enough, but I didn’t like this as well as most of the Brooklyns that I’ve had. Biscuity malts, some fruit, mostly dry. Ample palate, not too hoppy. Sammy (12197) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 15, 2005
Some hop and carbonation. Malty and carmel finish. Light mouthfeel. amber colour and a little off-white head.Dry slightly astringent aftertaste. Certainly not the best representative of this style I have had. Just boring and nothing special. anders37 (26605) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 14, 2005
Amber colour, off-white head that disappears quickly. Has a malty aroma. Taste is malty, a little sweet too and some bread tones. Some bitterness in the aftertaste. An easy drinking beer.
