FlyingSwine (174) - Littleton, Colorado, USA - SEP 17, 2008
12 oz bottle. Pours a dark brown/amber with a medium head. Little to no lacing. Sweet aroma, well balanced on the malty side. Flavor is fruity and sweet. Palate is medium bodied and creamy, although it finishes a bit on the dry side. Overall this is a very drinkable Marzen. Kalli (502) - Falun, SWEDEN - SEP 15, 2008
Dusty aroma of dark bread and pear candies.
Flavour combines some very nice medium full malts with a hoppy finish. Nice balance, nice session, nice autumn beer. hillfiiiiire (323) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 12, 2008
Pours a gold with no head. Aroma is bready and sweet. Flavor is sweet caramels balanced fairly nicely with spicy hops. Finishes with a light body, and is overall a decent beer but seems to miss the essence of Oktoberfest. ekstedt (6976) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 10, 2008
Bottle (35 cl) from Systembolaget. Beatiful clear mahogny with a medium beige head. Generous malt aroma with some nutty and caramelly notes, along with earthy and herbal hops. Well balanced with a dry finish. Very nice and drinkable lager from this not-my-favourite-American-brewery. ante (3373) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 10, 2008
Bottled. Pours out in a clear amber colour with a low of white foam. Malty sweet aroma of caramel, fudge, nuts, mild vanilla and caramelized sugar. Medium-bodied with a malty flavour of caramel, burnt sugar, roasted nuts and mild spicy hops. Caramelly finish with touches of toasted malts and nuts.

pours a clear copper with a red tint, small beige head, some lacing.scoth (690) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 7, 2008
smell of caramel, roasted nuts, somewhat earthy.
taste is crisp, caramel, light amount of tin, some nuts, ends oily and thick with a little bitterness, as it warms becomes more watery.
Pours clear amber-brown with a medium-thick off-white head, great lacing. Carmel malt and apple aroma. Smooth, fairly thin body, typical of a lager, well carbonated. Nicely balanced flavor, caramel, spicy, even a little smokey, and a little floral, hop bitterness in the aftertaste. HonkeyBra (4044) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - SEP 6, 2008
Pours a dark amber with nice, creamy head. Spicey, dough aroma. Flavor is grassy and leafy, with some sour dough and toffee. A little bitterness towards the back of the throat. Definitely full-bodied, easy drinking ale. Nothing mind-blowing though. thejoeshow (232) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - SEP 6, 2008
12 oz bottle. Pours a rich, deep amber/gold color with a nice cream colored head. There is not a lot of lacing and the retention is a little lacking though. The aroma is excellent! This is what an Oktoberfest should smell like. Very large caramel aromas, backed with a nice grainy note. Very nice. Flavor is nice and rich, full f caramel malt. This beer is nice and smooth on the palate and I could see myself in a big tent drinking massive mugs full of this. Nice representation of a good marzen.

I do like the marzens, leafy, grass tones are all around in it. It smells like a pretty standard lager, nothing too special. The look of it is a nice amber with a thin cream head on top. The flavor really picks up the grassy spicy flavors. The mouth feel is pretty smooth as well, all in all, a very nice drinkable beer.
