PorterPounder (8359) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 23, 2012
Nose: tangerines, peaches, apricots, and mango. Sweet, chewy, and meaty. Melba crust and spice in the back – cinnamon sticks. Orange rind. Brisk.
Palate: sweet spiced tropical fruits – spice is in the back. Apricots and peach skins – pits for bitterness. Essence of cinnamon and nutmeg weave in and out. Piles of fall leaves in the yard.
Final Thoughts: a nice Floridian take on the Oktoberfest style from Germany. Not too much complexity but the flavors were clean, precise, and blended together nicely.
Tampa, Fl - on tap at the CCB Tasting Room. Medium copper pour, off-white head, nice lace. Earthy aroma, some sweet toffee. Flavor has some caramel, a hint of raisins, some ripening vegetables. Thickish mouthfeel. Pretty solid. demmbonz (784) - Erin, Wisconsin, USA - APR 29, 2012
On tap at DLD 12. That is the most memorable thing about it. It was an average Oktoberfest/Marzen, Glad I got to try something from Cigar City finally. jcartamdg (3539) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 6, 2012
Pours a golden brown with no head. Aroma is weak with not much going on. Taste is malty and drinkable. Really nice easy drinking beer

Draught at the Pony Bars Cigar City Event NYC sept 2012. Nice clear amber beer with a small offwhite lacy head. Malty and floral aroma. Malty, floral, hoppy and some kind of herbal grass flavour. To much floral flavour for me... merc7186 (3160) - North Tonawanda, New York, USA - NOV 1, 2013

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. McBeastie (20) - 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. smith4498 (3697) - Winter Springs, Florida, USA - OCT 11, 2014
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.
