Pours clear light amber color with off white head. Aromas of toasted malts, cereal grains. Lightly sweet, toasted malt flavor. Medium body with average carbonation. CJ_Pain (221) - Georgia, USA - OCT 10, 2014
Credit where credit is due. Marzen not one of my face styles yet each October I find myself drinking quite a few as it seems like the thing to do. Most have been average at best but this year Sierra Nevada and now cigar city have produced solid marzen outings with just enough of a kick of hops to make it quite enjoyable. Very well done CCB.

After drinking Weizenheimerstamperphaser Oktoberfestbier this one is a giant let down. bkurtz (1098) - Florida, USA - OCT 1, 2014
Can - Pours a clear copper with fairly large, but quickly dissipating head. Aromas of caramel and bread. Nice mouth feel, biscuity. All good but the finish. McBeastie (16) - Florida, USA - SEP 18, 2014
A really nice marzen. Orange-copper pour. Honey and bread aromas. Sweet and light with more honey and yeast in taste and mild carbonation. Sure, doesn’t set the world on fire, but I think two, three or four of them would go great with a big German dinner of schnitzels and sausages. Getting hungry now. Solid Oktoberfest from CCB.

Light bronze pour. Faint bready aroma. Taste is sweet malt and doughy bread up front. This quickly fades into some light hops and a dry finish. Good but needs more malt to really be a great Oktoberfest. Aurelius (5335) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 13, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 14, 2014 Dead-on for the style. Toasted, lightly sweet, grainy aroma. Clear, bronze. Cereal, amber graininess. Dark syrups. Medium body. Slick mouthfeel. Tasty. Florida Tap Invitational, Proof. With LuckyDog, PorterPounder. LuckyDog (615) - - SEP 13, 2014
Very mild. More of a session beer than an Oktoberfest. Very drinkable. Clean. merc7186 (3142) - North Tonawanda, New York, USA - NOV 1, 2013
A: Amber Hue, Passes Some Light, Mild Head Ring, No Lacing

T: Caramel, Sweet Malt, Mildly Earthy

Overall, poorly carbonated and semi weak, especially for cigar city...disappointed. daknole (11049) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - SEP 1, 2013
Amber pour in Nebraska. Flavor is sweet, some brown sugar cookies, toasted malt and a nice hint of hops.
