Can from the lcbo. Dark. Copper pour, small off white head. Aroma is very very malty, but also quite sweet. Notes of wet paper, caramel, and musty apples. Finish is sweet, caramels, musty grass.... Not very good. Strangebrewer (1398) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 23, 2017
can. Poured pale straw coloured with a big white head. Aroma is light with grainy malts. Light body, highly carbonated, crisp prickly mouthfeel. Grainy straw flavour, herbal quality, light peppery spice with a tart finish. Freaky_tiki (1452) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 8, 2016
Can from LCBO. Decent Marzen. Deep toasted bread malts: fresh pumpernickel, honey sweetness, a slight hop bitterness. Better than the other Marzen I sampled tonight. jksipa (1057) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 13, 2016
Can from the LCBO. Clear pale amber with a small quickly fading white head. Nose is light toffee and grain with a hint of floral hops. Light sweet caramel with only the slightest bitterness along with an odd mineral tang. Medium light thin mouth with soft carbonation. Just OK.

473ml can. Pours a small foamy white head that doesn’t stay very long and has a pale golden appearance. Leaves a bit of dirty lacing. Aromas of light citrus, sweet and grainy malts, hints of wheats. Flavours are actually quite fruity, not overly abundant but quite noticeable. Still has that grainy malt taste though, some grassy hops as well. Average carbonation. It’s a pretty refreshing brew.
Crockett (1146) - Southampton, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 18, 2016
Pours clear very pale yellow amber. Short-lived white head. Sweet apple, toasted malt, caramel nose. Lots of carbonation. Mouthfeel is medium/low. Very very sweet. Lots of cereal malts, there is a little earth, and mild medicinal and fruity hops in there... but it is buried under all that sugar. It’s a bit bready, if we’re talking sweet bran muffin. For a style where you should find it appetizing, and a willingness to have several... even one of these is proving difficult. probstblueribbon (3791) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 30, 2015
473 ml can from LCBO via my bro, served cold in a tulip glass. Raistlin (530) - London, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 2, 2015
App.: Clear deep golden with a fluffy, off-white head.
Aroma: Metallic, bready maltiness, melanoidin, just a touch vinous, a little Noble hop aroma.
Palate: Medium body, moderate+ carbonation.
Flav.: Still kinda metallic, a bit more vinous than the nose, bready malt and melanoidin, light Noble hop character; lightly sweet with moderate bitterness and a metallic, bready malt finish.
Not particularly great.
Poured golden color almost see through Had small white head that dissipated. It had aroma of cereal malts along with some light fruit and some barely noticeable floral hops. It had medium body with very low carbonation for marzen. deepeary (405) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 31, 2015
LCBO can. Nose has punch, peppery hops, floral, earthy, bread and grain. Taste follows and I get a trace of pumpklin. Very quaff-able and flavourful. Medium body, Solid seasonal lager. Alpha10 (901) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 13, 2015
UPDATED: SEP 14, 2015 2015/09/13 - Pours a clear orange-gold colour with a thin, fizzy, off white head that quickly vanishes. Aroma is cereal, vegetal notes, slight caramel and a hint of apple. Taste is cereal grain, slight caramel, roast, mild vegetal hops and light apple. Slightly watery and rather metallic. Mouthfeel is thin with average carbonation and a long, drying finish. Ok, nothing special. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
