Sort of like a liquid version of a hard Beer-Candy. Not bad but nothing to write home about, this bright copper Marzen has a nice head that laces well. It smells of sweet malt, some corn and cereal with very light hop spiciness in the background. It is quite sweet with only a finishing bitter impact saving it from candy territory. I get some earthy hints of mushroom as well, nothing to grave but present. With most Pump House brews I have had I noticed a somewhat metallic taste, perhaps from the twist-off caps. She’s a tad syrupy but overall fairly enjoyable.

Hidden_Pooch (518) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - SEP 29, 2014
Not bad, but not overly fun. Pours a clear amber with tiny head. Aroma is of wheat, leather, caramel, and some horse. Tastes of smoke, caramel, and toffee. Has low carbonation and feels very watery with a smokey aftertaste.

plaugher (471) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - SEP 22, 2013
On tap from the brew-pub. Pours a copper colour with a light tan head. Not much lacing. A bit of a malty aroma. Flavours of honey and a little bit of spice, but not nearly enough. Kind of sticky on the palate.

reebtogi (6200) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 6, 2013
341ml bottle pours a golden amber color with a finger of white head that settles down to leave only a speck or two of lacing on the glass. Aroma is cereal grains and caramel. Taste is a grainy malt sweetness with a light citrus and grassy hop bitterness. A decent brew for the style, but there are better ones out there.

Gethinbeer (2452) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - NOV 12, 2012
Copper with no head or lace. Sweet syrup, honey aroma. Foisty flavour. Sweet syrup texture. Weird beer.

HogTownHarry (6611) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 11, 2012
October 30, 2011 - Volo Cask Days 2011 - gravity cask. Minimal notes for this one. Hazy amber, small beige rocky head. Simple malt aroma, cereal, lightly toasty, a tad sweet, just a little soft floral bitterness to balance, light alcohol. Average across the board - crisp, chewy, decently carbonated, finishes fairly quickly leaving a light biscuity malt aftertaste. Nice.

On tap at Church Street fall of 2009. Delicious maltiness, halfway between a summer wheat and a stout. Very Good!

Berley31 (230) - New Brunswick, CANADA - NOV 13, 2009
A: Poured with an average-sized, off-white head. Some spare lacing on the sides of the glass. Body is an amber/orange color, and quite cloudy. S: Mild, sweet aroma of malt, with a little nuttiness to it. T: Pretty good flavor of average malt, and moderately sweet. Short duration - doesn’t really last too long after it’s gone. The nuttiness is in there again, with the malt. M: Medium-bodied and creamy texture, with average carbonation. D: A very decent Oktoberfest, if not the best I’ve had. While it may not be overly interesting, it definitely is easy to drink.
