Clear amber body with a slendy, creamy beige head. Not a long lifed one. The aroma is malty and sweet, toasty with caramel and a touch of toffee. A bit thin for the style, but with a pleasantly sweet caramel taste blended neatly with lightly roasted malt. Quaffable.markwise (5441) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - SEP 26, 2011

Big thanks to GT2 for this one in trade. CHeers, GT! Pours a hazy orange-amber with a small white head. Nose is light German malts with some lager and some mild grassy hops. Flavor is similar- light malts and some hops with a bit of yeast. Light to medium in body and a decent Vienna. beerguy101 (5360) - Newark, California, USA - SEP 16, 2002
Deep red color, medium head. A full-bodied amber. Intense malt flavor, sweet and very robust. Not very hoppy. Good balance. Nice flavor. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and very smooth. Aftertaste is malty and slightly sweet. Very nice beer. heemer77 (5355) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - NOV 10, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 30, 2005 Good thing I live close to the Amana Colonies. Has an aroma of walnuts and some muted apples. The taste is light with a little bit of bread and caramel. Has a cheesy aftertaste on tap. Lively carbonation in the mouth. Smooth and has little head when ordered on tap. In the bottle, I find the taste to be more subtle and refined. Nice beer. hayduke (5187) - Eureka, California, USA - AUG 10, 2006
On tap in Amana at the Ronneburg Restaurant. Poured a rich copper color with a nice light tan head that lasted quite a while and left good lacing. Roasted malts in the nose and other aromas of carmel and slght hops. Decent mouthfeel and a solid malt flaror. Low carbonation makes this a smooth and fairly enjoyable brew.

UPDATED: SEP 5, 2010 Original Rating, 10/4/2004: Clear brown or red color with no head. A little spice on the nose. Very dry and dusty malt taste. Eh, not much to write home about. 6/3/5/3/12oldrtybastrd (5002) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 1, 2006
Re-Rating, 9/6/2010: Dark copper color with a thin head. Light amber and biscuity aroma. Light biscuit taste, fairly rich malt (Munich?) flavor. A bit of spice. Not sure what the heck I was drinking the first time around.
Pours a nice deep amber color. Aromas of fruit/malt. Flavor has a nice clean taste, mildly hoppy with some nice malty tones. ChainGangGuy (4894) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - DEC 23, 2007
Appearance: Pours a clear amber body with a thin, bubbly white head.
Smell: Altogether mild aroma of toasted malts with light notes of apple and flowers.
Taste: Toasty maltiness with a mild sweetness and a hint of red apple peel. Vaguely floral hop character with little bitterness provided. Crisp finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium carbonation.
Drinkability: A fine, easy-drinking beer. Why, it’s schild’s play! TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - JAN 21, 2007
Pours a lightly hazy orange amber with a small off white head that left hints of lacing. Aroma of caramel, grains, toasty and bready. Flavor is toasty, sweet malts, grains, cereal, some caramel, touch of hop bitterness (very light), biscuity and some citrus. I always find this style of beer hard to put into words (looking through some of the other ratings this seems to be fairly common). Bottom line is that this is an easy drinking, well made Marzen! ads135 (4587) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JAN 31, 2016
An okay amber. Near to no aroma. The flavor is a bit off. The malts taste like they were roasted just a bit too long, and the hops add a level of surprising astringency.
