2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Growler purchased at the brewery and consumed on 3/13/12.
Pours a hazy dark amber color with a half finger white head that immediately settles into a thin ring. Minimal spots of lace left behind.
Earthy aroma with lots of soil and grassy hops balanced by sweet malt notes. Hints of caramel and toffee followed by bread and biscuit.
Medium bodied with soft carbonation but slightly watered down. Decent balance of earthy, grassy hops, straw, hay, bread and sweet malts. Hints of biscuit, caramel and toffee. Decent but a bit watered down and too earthy/soily tasting for my liking.

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.

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

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.

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

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.
