This marzen is drinkable but it's pretty bad compared to other oktoberfest beers. Just some really funky off flavors going on In this beer and to be honest I started to get a headache when I drank it.

Pretty good marzen, malty but uber-clean, front-loaded with caramel and toffee and esters that quickly fade into a crisp, bright, slightly floral finish. Could use a heftier ass on it, to be honest; the back end loses its steam abruptly, and some lingering sweetness on the fade would hew closer to a traditional festbier, but, hell, we’re still suffering through summer here in Tennessee, so a somewhat refreshing Oktoberfest brew is acceptable. Pretty red-orange pour, probably as appealing a caramel-toffee marzen nose as you can get. Texture’s a tinge overcarbonated. Not bad.

From notes, draft to pint at Cappy’s pour light copper amber with thin ecru head. Nose green apple, crystal malt, cracker, caramel. Taste fairly sweet, apple and fruit, then grainy malt. Fairly clean, no skunk.

Very smooth, no lingering after taste, very good overall, great appearance, I could tell by the appearance it would be full of flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

It pours a clear Amber with good head of foam. Smells malty as in toasted with bread. No real over sweet notes. Yum. Bready malt, toasted, light bitterness, this is a tasty OFest. I get caramel too but the sweetness level is kept in check. I am a hard ass when it comes to the style so my praise isn’t to be taken lightly. Medium body with mildish carbonation. From their sampler pack.

Bottle from Merchants. Aroma is caramel, earthy hop, robust, almost like a scotch ale, slight metallic, good. Appearance is darker amber, clear, light tan head. Taste is earthy hop, caramel, bitter malt, wheat, robust, autumn in a glass. Mouthfeel is light to medium body, light carbonation, caramel malt and earthy hop aftertaste. Overall, solid example of the style.

12 oz bottle pours clear copper with very small head no lacing to speak of. Faint smell of pumpkin and malt, taste is better than I thought it would be crisp and slightly sweet bitter aftertaste but I like it.

From the bottle. Grassy aroma golden copper color wit a medium thick cream colored head. Malty flavor is quickly overcome by the hops. Hop bitterness lingers.

UPDATED: DEC 11, 2016 Slightly alcoholic taste. Dark in color. Thick for a lager. Smooth to the palate, with a crisp finish.
