Casting central marzen aroma - lightly candied, cereal, a little dark syrup, some grassiness. Intense, clear, bronze color. Standard US twist-off longneck. Good cap, OK label. Lightly sweet, a little woody, lightly bittered, a little tannic, good malting. Medium, slick body. Sweetish, toasted malt, graham aftertaste. I’ve not had a bad beer yet from this brewer, and they make some great lagers. Picked up a sixer of this from Market Square Liquors on a fire sale ($3.99/6, slightly after Oktober) - this was a bargain. I use marzens a lot in my cooking, so if these don’t all get swilled, they have great utility.

Tallahassee, Fl - New Leaf Market - 12 oz bottle. Pours a nice sparkling medium copper with a very slight white head. Aroma is pleasant but not very apparent with hints of caramel and ripening vegetables. Nice clean flavor with a brief hint of unsweetened chocolate, a touch of molasses and some back end ripening vegetables. Mouthfeel is thick enough. Decent.

3 ounce sampler at the Grovetoberfest Miami beer festival 10/13/12. Very good!

Too sweet, almost sugary and artificial. Thankfully it’s not offensive, and the taste doesn’t insist on sticking around.

On tap at CBF. Poured red with a moderate head and good lacing, with an aroma, with a faint sourness. It had a sweet toasty malt flavor all the way through and was very smooth and fresh tasting.

bottle. Pours bright orange with a quick little white head that settles to a ring. Aroma has nice malt and marmalade scent. Taste has a nice subtle bitterness and sweet malt marmalade mixed throughout. Palate is slick with a fizzy carbonation and a drying finish. Pretty nice.

Outstanding! Great grain aroma with a bit of cookie or cake like breadieness? Great roasted malt flavor that just pores through the whole time. Even finished with that sweet malt flavor lingering. Just a little bit of tart at the end, simple, like a period at the end of sentence. I liked the shit out of it!

Pours a clear amber orange. Not much aroma. Taste is malty & biscuity with little hop finish. Moderate carbonation. Overall a nice Octoberfest. More beer please...

12oz bottle from Binny’s Lakeview. Pours a crystal clear, copper, somewhat gold tinted body with a finger-width, frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is rich and bready malts with a medium sweetness, a light caramel, a touch of toast, and a floral fruitiness with some peaches and a light apple note. Flavor is similar. Rich and bready malts with some toast and a light caramel sweetness. A slight graininess and a light earthy hopping with a bit of a peachy fruitiness before this finishes smooth with a balanced, light-medium bitterness before leaving a medium length aftertaste. Medium body with a moderate carbonation. Overall, not a bad Oktoberfest. Some bready sweet malts with a light caramel and graininess balanced with a clean, earthy hopping and light toast note. Enjoyable enough.

Ok beer. Kinda sweet. Not really appealing. I look for a much bolder flavor from an octoberfest. Good color, no real aroma.
