Thinner oktoberfest, slight diacetyl, caramel grains, slight mineral. Bready. It is okay. esjaygee (3902) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 5, 2012
Hazed amber with a pillowy taupe head that fades slowly. Aroma of caramel, toffee, light fruit, pale malt and some noble hops. Taste in line with aroma with caramel and toffee and light hops. Ok. doubelknv3 (1093) - Illinois, USA - JUN 16, 2012
Dark copper amber, off white creamy head. Nutty, caramel, and mild lemon aroma and flavor. Adult flavored, mild bitter, and nut malt finish.

Nice amber color with bready caramel scent. Wonderful roast taste and goes down super smooth.

Poured a nice reddish amber with a light foamy head and nice lacing. Aroma is of malts with a slight hoppy character. Flavor is of malts upfront with a nice Marzen hoppy finish which was light to moderate. Palate was decent. Overall, a nice Marzen from the folks at Sand Creek. I am guessing they use the same formulation for their Pioneer Red River Marzen style brew.

Deep amber color. Nose of cheap caramel malt and some noble hops. Not much coming through on the malt side, with a resounding bitterness that seems a bit heavy for the style. Some plastic. A bit overly dry as well. DasBierChef (1081) - Hudson, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 10, 2011
Pours a crystal clear amber with thin white head that vanishes immediately. Aroma is very simple and not very powerful, but full of malt. Taste is very watery but hints at a bit of malt on the tail end of it. Not impressed. nuplastikk (6511) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 27, 2011
12oz bottle. Filtered bronzed amber color with a soapy, off-white head. Mild, mellow sweet aroma, some lager tones and a faint hop spiciness. Medium bodied, malt forward, this is a pretty decent example of the style. Some orange tones that seem a little awkward, but a clean, toasty malt bill keeps it sailing smooth. Very subtle and enjoyable, but not quite a World Class example.
