Not bad for the style. Actually somewhat enjoyable, pretty clean in the mouthfeel, with some rich bready caramel malt and just a bit of spice detectable. greenleaf (90) - Florida, USA - MAY 4, 2008
12oz. Bottle pours deep amber. The taste of this brew is charachteristic of many octoberfests. It is a spicy yet tempting brew that does not necessarilly dissapoint. phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 12, 2008
A nice Marzen, always enjoy tasting this one- ecspecially on draught. Pours a bright copper colour with a large white head. Aroma is of fresh light amber malt and earth. Flavor is full on the palate, rich yet smooth and firm. Perhaps a little spice as well. amishcaravan (247) - Winona, Minnesota, USA - AUG 15, 2008
pours a deep amber color with a thin lasting head. not a very strong aroma, but there is some burnt roast and some hops. taste is of bitter hops and some caramel. finish is mostly smooth with a little bit of bitterness in the end that sits on the back of your tongue. Overall, not a bad beer and one that I would drink again. jeremyd365 (124) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - AUG 22, 2008
Poured a dark amber with a thick, fluffy white head. Smells lager-ish with perhaps some hints of citrus. Tastes pretty much how it smells which leaves a little something to be desired. Body seems about right, but the flavor is a little lacking.

bottle, golden amber, foamy head, flavor of light malts, finish is thin and mild Jblauvs (1357) - Chester, Vermont, USA - SEP 5, 2008
Dark amber pour, small fizzy head. malty aromas mix with a slight hop. flavors are malt as well but is a bit weak. Not bad, but not great either SrSilliGose (3332) - pouring bus, New Brunswick, CANADA - MAR 30, 2009

UPDATED: AUG 12, 2011 12oz bottle into a pint glass. An alright interpretation, but I definitely like other American versions better. Re-rate 8/12/11. On tap at the Sam Adams bar in the ATL airport. Clear amber pour with a touch of wispy tan head. Somewhat plain aroma of caramel, grain, and burnt sugars. Sweet caramel flavor with graininess and a touch of roast. Meh.

Bottole. Medium amber-brown color. Caramel nose. Decent caramel malts with pretty good balance. A bit too fruity, though, with some bubblegum flavor. Malt richness and softness really doesn’t come through. Tasty, though.
