Backlog from my SATX trip. Pours clear orange amber. Nose of white pepper and malt. Taste is lightly spiced malts. brokensail (16633) - Dublin, California, USA - OCT 25, 2010
A: The pour is a dark amber color, one could call it copper, I suppose. The head is initially a thin layer of khaki foam, but soon dies down to almost nothing.
S: The hops are mildly spicy with some definite earthy notes. A fair amount of lager yeast follows. As the beer comes up to temperature, I get more of the rich bready character and a hint of caramel.
T: This one opens up with the dense breadiness I was expecting. Some nice spice flavors to this beer as well, I seem to pick up some nutmeg. The sweetness is moderate with a mild bitterness to compliment it all.
M: The body is medium with a moderate level of rolling carbonation.
D: A really good beer. Before I knew it my glass was empty and the bottle was gone. bhensonb (15609) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 18, 2010
Bottle from ericandersnavy. Pours copper with a foamy 2 finger off-white head. Smells bready and a bit herby. Med body. Tis bready. Just a little sweet, but there’s just a little hop to help cover that. Finish is lightly toasted bready maltiness. But it’s verging on dry. djd07 (15341) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 2, 2009
On tap at flying saucer. Pours a cloudy copper gold with a small frothy white head that leaves decent spotty lacing on the glass. The aroma is light hop with wheat grass and coriader. Thin mouthfeel with a bitter wheat grass and grain with a clean finish. A good marzen from real ale. Drake (14059) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 28, 2010

Aroma of caramel, leafy hops, nutty notes, some lightly toasted grain. The taste is caramel, toasted malts, bitter leafy hop finish. Medium bodied. Petty good marzen.

GABF 2011. Clear deep copper, light white head. Big aroma of toasty biscuit, mild noble hop bitterness, and dank earthy dry malt. Flavor was nice and big and dry. Lots of earthy Munich malt, toast, and biscuit. Lovely! arminjewell (9720) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 4, 2011
Pours hazy red with white head, aroma has notes of caramel, grain, toasted malt. Taste is sweet caramel, grain, some grass and earth, slightly bitter but mostly sweet finish. Not bad. drowland (8938) - Georgia, USA - SEP 19, 2011
9/19/11. 12oz bottle via Cavie! Slightly hazy amber pour, almost red, with a small khaki head that fades but keeps a ring. Grainy caramel aroma with a big malty flavor that tastes of grain, chocolate, and caramel. Nice! drfabulous (8470) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - OCT 17, 2010
12 ounce thanks to Cavie. Orange body. Lager yeasty musty taste. Some perfume. Not as malty as other Oktoberfests, but not my style anyway.
