Draught at Left Hand. Pours mahagony with a spotty, edgy tan head and lined lacing. Caramel sour malt (hay, straw) and yeast (sweat) aroma. Caramel malt bitter hop flavor with an acidic malty finish. Medium bodied and clean refreshing palate. Dogbrick (13789) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 4, 2004
Dark copper color with a medium thin beige head. Minimal lacing. There is a fair amount of sweet malt and caramel in the aroma. Medium bodied and it has a crisp side too. Sweet malt flavor dominates yet there is a faint sourness and bitterness every once in awhile. Kind of a Jekyll & Hyde thing. The finish is clean and sweet. Overall this is an average Marzen. j12601 (13123) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - NOV 5, 2009
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear orange with a medium to large creamy off white head. Bread, grain, malt, earthy hops. Medium body, light spicy booze component, earthy malts with a bit of biscuit and caramel. Finishes with a touch of plumy sweetness, and some hoppy bitterness. hopdog (13102) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 4, 2006
12oz bottle acquired in trade with robertsreality (thanks!). Poured a deepr and cloudy amber / orange color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of toasted malts, caramel, and lightly spicy.

"A true to the style octoberfest that has a pleasant bready malt presence. A little light on the palate, but the aroma especially is quite nice. if there were just a little more follow through, this could be very good."

on tap-pours a light tan head and copper color. Aroma is sweet medium/dark malt. Taste is sweet medium/dark malt-dark fruit secondary hops and finishes with a bite. OK carbonation. shrubber85 (11618) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - DEC 20, 2010
Bottle. Buttery caramel malt with hint of hay. Clear copper color with small head. Sweet butter/caramel malt flavor with mild bitter straw. Medium body - not great, not horrible. daknole (11402) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - DEC 25, 2008
this just isnt a good beer. Amber pour. Metallic and malty aroma. Flavor is full of a weird tart metallic component that totally made me drain pour it. Nasty. BVery (11364) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - OCT 31, 2009
BOTTLE: amber pour with a reddish hue, small white head. Bread on the nose, maybe some caramel. Taste is toast, butterscotch, medium mouthfeel. Not too bad. hopscotch (11246) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 13, 2006
Bottle... Clear copper lager with a small, tight, off-white head that’s gone in a flash. Toasted nuts and caramel nose. Caramel-sweet flavor with decent hop crispness and bitterness to keep things nearly balanced. Medium-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Finishes lightly sweet; bordering on crisp.
