Fatehunter (2341) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - SEP 26, 2012
Opaque amber color with a thin head. Getting some wet hay and grapefruit smell. Moderately malty first, then some bitterness to round it out. Simple, but hits the notes for the style. Has an interesting bitter/pine aftertaste. Medium body with moderate carbonation, though it has a fizziness to it like seltzer water. Fairly average beer.

Bill Becker (849) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - NOV 3, 2016
Pours a cloudy orange red with a good head of foam and decent retention. Smells and tastes bready and grainy, definitely not overly sweet. .could use more of that, imho. Pretty ample body and carbonation. Just another average Oktoberfest.

Patrickctenchi (6194) - Coxís Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - SEP 24, 2016
Bottle: Nearly clear amber, with a creamy beige head. Lactic caramel scent. Tangy, caramel malt, slightly sour, acidic taste..... A little rough.

shrubber85 (10885) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - SEP 9, 2016
Bottle. Milk caramel malt and hay aroma. Dark amber with moderate head. Moderately sweet caramel malt, moderately sour lactic acid, and mildly bitter hay flavor. Okay body. Decent but way too acidic.

hopscotch (10707) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 22, 2015
Bottle... Pours clear and amber with flashes of copper and a small, creamy, white head. The aroma is an eclectic assortment of maltiness, toastiness, nuttiness and fruitiness Ė fruitcake drizzled with warm liquid toffee. Full-bodied with modest carbonation. The flavor is fairly rich and malty, but not sweet - excellent balance. In fact, this actually trends slightly bitter in the finish. Whatís not to like? Bottle courtesy of BVery!

beer_rookie (445) - Arkansas, USA - SEP 30, 2015
Pours a copper gold color. Two finger head, okay lacing. Itís not clear, itís a little cloudy, and a little sediment floating around in there.

Aroma is amazing. Itís quite malty, and a little hoppy. Quite bready. It is quite sweet smelling. It smells like a Caramello bar. Such a high caramel aroma, I want to take a bath in it..

With a nose like that you would expect the taste to follow suit. But not so fast. Iím a little disappointed in the taste. Itís very malty in taste, itís also a little hoppy. Itís bready. Itís sweet, but Iím not so much tasting the caramel I was smelling. Iím really tasting the malts. Itís very bready to the taste. Itís a little sweet, but very bready.

Mouthfeel is excellent. Itís easy drinking. Itís sweet, and dry. Thereís barely any bitterness. Itís highly drinkable, and 6.1% ABV, is barely noticeable. Itís medium body at best. Maybe just a tiny bit of bitterness on the finish.

Overall, this is really good. Absolutely try this one if you can find it. I wish that caramel on the nose could make it into the taste. But otherwise, itís still a fine Marzen!

weihenweizen (3225) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - FEB 9, 2015
Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle, BVery with the hookup, poured into an English pint glass. Slightly hazy copper with small off-white head. Aroma is light herbal hops, medium body, medium carbonation, and little small lacing. Taste is caramel malt, some slightly oxidized bread, some herbal hops, hints of dark chocolate, and slightly bitter finish. Slightly past its prime.

Bottle. Orange amber pour with a small white head. Toast and caramel. Fairly plain and simple. About what I expected.

AmEricanbrew (6750) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - NOV 16, 2014
Bottle@ trailer. Bright amber color with ivory foam. Vegetal, caramel, bready yeasty aromas. Smooth medium body. Nice toast, lightly sweet spicy caramel, bready, lagered flavors---not too bad.

"Light roast and a pleasant caramel sweetness in the nose. Pretty light all-around, though. Flavor has similar attributes plus a hint of butterscotch and crisp hops in the finish. OK, but nothin special
