Summary: I have been slow to start out November - need to kick it up a notch to hit 1000 total ratings before January 1st. Per usual I mostly defer for this style to the imports from Germany. Not a bad beer for the style and drinkable, but nothing that would make me choose this over others, even within American options.
Bottle from Top Shelf Liquor. Aroma is caramel, earthy hops, toffee, bready. Appearance is amber brown, light tan head, slightly hazy. Taste is bready, caramel, earthy hops, malty, pretty tasty. Mouthfeel is light to medium body, light carbonation, caramel and earthy hop dry aftertaste. Overall, it’s actually pretty damn good, even if it doesn’t remind me of a typical Oktoberfest beer.

Clear dark amber color with beige head. Aroma has caramel, burnt sugar and some dried dates. Taste starts slightly sweet with caramelized sugar and some generic dried fruits. Finish is balanced out by some earthy bitterness. Light body, medium carbonation. Overall it’s a nice beer, not a classic marzen, and I like that. laminarman (32) - - JAN 6, 2017
Pours from bottle a beautiful copper color with a quickly disappearing head. A sweet malty nose and coffee, toffee, toast, caramel are what I get. A minimal background of hoppiness. A sweet and round palate with a fine finish. The sweetness is not something I am too fond of in a beer, but this is quite enjoyable and I could really pair this with a Polish or German sausage sandwich and feel quite happy indeed.

Bottle. Pours deep copper with a thin light beige head that dissipates quickly. Nose of bread crust, caramel, and some spiciness. Bready malt with caramel and spicy bitterness.

From Labirratorium. In Teku glass. Playing Electronic Super Joy. Full of biscuit notes. Not as refreshing as typical german marzens but thicker and very pleasant too. hershiser2 (3053) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - DEC 2, 2016
