3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap. Pours a clear deep orange color with a medium head that dissipates rapidly. Flavor is malt forward, notes of roast and toffee. Medium bodied. Hops are very minimal, just a hint towards the end that drys it out a bit. Well balanced, just what I’m looking for in a sessionable Marzen.
Bottle. Molasses/caramel malt and hay aroma. Dark amber with large light tan head. Moderately sweet nutty caramel malt and mildly bitter hay flavor. Good body. Okay but very sweet. Patrickctenchi (6586) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - SEP 18, 2016
Pours hazy amber with a small, off-white head.
Caramel, light spice scent.
Taste is slightly tangy caramel malt, toast, a bit of sweet spicing.
OK.....grew a little too sweet towards the end. HuskerTan (2201) - Ravenna, Nebraska, USA - OCT 31, 2015
A- Malty, bland, weak, subtle spice, caramel.
A- Copper color, clear liquid, white head.
T- Crackers, black peppers, caramel, malty,
P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation,
O- A very nice looking beer but a weak aroma and not real exciting taste. Some black pepper crackers in the taste but otherwise pretty standard. Travlr (24665) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - OCT 30, 2015
Bottle courtesy of HuskerTan, thanks you! Clear bright amber color, scant off white edge head. Aroma of caramel and light biscuit. Taste is lightly toasted caramel. OK. ozzy70 (1148) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - OCT 17, 2015

Pours a clear coppery color with off-white head. Caramel malts, biscuit, and bread on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied. Finishes with malt. Nicely done marzen. Nuffield (4171) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - AUG 24, 2015
Crisp, clear golden. Concord grape and peanut butter. Flat palate. Really pretty disappointing. (At Summer Beer Dabbler, St. Paul, MN) beergirlterri (1) - Iowa, USA - JUN 19, 2015 does not count
This Oktoberfest beer has a full malty body and richness to the flavor. With some sweetness and caramel notes. This brew is a very traditional Maerzen, arminjewell (9635) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAR 7, 2015
Pour on tap, clear orange-red pour with white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, toffee, toast into a bit of red fruit, touch of spice, herbal notes, hints of grain. Taste was a mix of caramel, bread, toast into a bit of spice, yeast, touch of red fruit, finishing slightly dry, slightly sweet. slowrunner77 (12037) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 27, 2014
