A good marzen. Don’t know what makes a marzen outstanding but this is as good as any I’ve had. Thanks Dchmela! Tart lemon and cereal aromas. All malts and sweet grains. Good.

Pours a darker copper color with off-white colored head. Caramel malt, a small amount of sweetness, and some hop grass on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with more malted goodness.

Color is a hazy cloudy brown with a slight reddish tint. Flavor is mostly driven by the malts here, but that’s too be expected for this style. Slightly sweet with a little bit of bitterness on the back end.

Better than average, but not my fav style. Caramel malts, doughy, some grass, a touch of spice. Easy drinking.

what i really like about this one, unlike most oktoberfests, is that it has a nice balance of hoppiness to even out the malty graininess and darker sugars. its refreshing, bright, clean without being too cloying like other Octs. very nice indeed.

Draft @ redlight redlight. Sweet caramel malts on the nose. Pours amber gold with a solid white head. Light caramel malts upfront with some grassy hops and a crisp finish. Very light and crisp very refreshing

Geiger says this is CCBs best beer, and while I don’t quite agree it’s certainly a good one. Very nice caramel malt crispness, semisweet, but a good lightly bitter finish. Excellent stuff, extremely drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can, thanks to newcigarz. Clear orange-amber, small frothy head. Aroma: caramel, toast, molasses/brown sugar, overripe fruit, decay. Tastes pretty sweet at first, but that gets reined in. Medium body, average carbonation. Overall: okay -- better than most marzens I’ve had, but still sweeter than my favorites.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma of toffee, malts and a nice hickory. Pours bronze with almost no head. Taste is nice and hearty. Great notes of toffee and yeast. Sweeter than your average marzen.
