Lot of malt in this one. I found the color to be darker than expected. Clear orange-gold with little head. Taste was adequately bitter and a touch of sweetness (floral, maybe?) . The general aroma had a skunkiness I didn’t care for but othern’ that it was pretty good stuff. I definitely liked it better than the michelob marzen.

Malty... in... your... mouth.
Duff: Now, Homer, we’ve developed this additive that makes beer super, super malty. Care to try it?
Homer: Wait a minute, will this erase my memory?
Duff: No, not at all.
[Duffman prepares a hypodermic needle, and injects Homer. He’s immediately knocked out]
Thankfully, my memory isn’t erased either. Wait, what was I writing?

Malty aroma mostly of caramel. Pours dark amber color with a small off white head. Flavors of caramel, toffee and roasted nuts. Very drinkable. Overall an average Marzen, nothing wrong with it but nothing really stands out either.

Darker than I thought. Really really light taste, Surprised it didn’t do beteer overall.

Draft at the brewpub. Pours amber with a thin head. The aroma is malty sweet. The flavor has caramel, nuts, and butterscotch. Not bad.

Draft... Mostly clear amber lager with a small, creamy, white head. The aroma offers cool-weather notes of roasted nuts and caramel. Medium-bodied with fizzy carbonation. Nicely balanced. Caramelly with good roastiness - also, a little tangy. Short, crisp, clean finish

UPDATED: SEP 30, 2008 Poured an amber color with a white head. Aroma was pretty bland but sweet. Flavor was malty and a bit fruity but still nothingf impressive by any means

Tap at Barcade. The darkest marzen I’ve ever seen. Very dark brown, chocolate-coloured pint topped by a thick off-white head. The aroma is quite rich and sweet. Toasted malt, lightly herbal/spicy maltiness. Lots of cola/root beer like flavour with an assertive toasted rye component. It’s almost kvass-like. Warming brings up more herbal components and a touch of roasted chicory. This isn’t a marzen by any stretch of the imagination, but it’s a tasty brew nonetheless.

medium brown with nice white head. flavor is low on the malt and hop but the yeast contributes a nice fruitiness to the beer. not bad

Draft at D’s Six Pax & Dogz. Pours a medium amber, thin, off white head. Aroma is carmel and sweet. Flavor is malty with a touch of carmel notes, maybe some hops, but not much.
