Mildy hop and malt flavor, with a slightly sweet finish. This was great for sipping around the bbq.

There is a tangy malty flavor and aroma to this mildly hopped beer. Some carmel malt comes through, especially when it starts to warm up.

on tap GB: i think this is a very different beer on tap at LV instead of bottled (san jose). its not a great marzen but it does have a little bit more alcohol as it should but too much sweetness alcohol flavor for me. very malty toasted overtones with little or no hop character. they serve them up nice at GB in a .51 L with large frothy head. it used to be my favorite GB beer but i grew tired of it, gives you a wicked hangover and headache, buyer beware!

Starts with a thin rush of caramel that gets eaaten up by the prickly carbonation - didn't thicken up much after warming, either. Finishes with a slightly metallic hop bite, a hint of sourness, and a final spot of caramel. I probably wouldn't have it again, except maybe with pizza

Watery, slight notes of caramel, a little too sweet, quicky dissapating head, smooth, I bought a 12er and shouldn't have any trouble finishing it, but it might be the last time I buy it.

Too thin and oddly sweet for me. Caramel colour and flavour with a slightly bitter aftertaste - but not in a good way. Average.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear copper out of the bottle with a foamy off white head and a very faint sweet nose. Very little to this beer with mostly refined sugar sweetness. Some burnt carmel flavor, but mostly just beer. Good with food.

Tap: I really like their Blonde Bock so I was expecting some sweet maltiness with this beer. No sweetness, no depth, and an American standard aftertaste to boot.

At $5.99 a six pack this is one of the most interesting beers available at the local Kroger store. Rich, malty and enjoyable. Nice amber color with a full, frothy head on top. Nice warming quality to this brew. Though not the greatest Marzen I've ever had this is certainly worth enjoying from time to time...especially at this price. Hell, Heineken, Corona and Becks cost much more and they can't touch this beer on flavor.
