stimulus (86) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 12, 2010
12 ounce bottle poured into a pint glass. (6 pack)
A: Pours a transparent amber with a one finger cream head.
S: Caramel, nuts, and toffee.
T: Sweet and malty with a big caramel presence and a nutty finish.
M: Light bodied and well carbonated.
D: Very drinkable, as most marzens are, and although it would be nice to see its abv, it’s probably around 5.5-6% and nearly undetectable. SSSteve (4006) - - SEP 24, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 26, 2011 bottle. clear copper with a small beige head. nutty, peanut brittle nose. slight bitterness with toast, nuts, and burnt caramel. light-medium body with medium carbonation. robust and dirty in a good way. tasted side by side with another world class beer of the same style...this one inched out the win. nice job! derekbrown (109) - Greenville, North Carolina, USA - OCT 9, 2010
Wonderful, fest-style lager in the Oktoberfest tradition. Spicy in a good way, but well-balanced by both malt and hops. dlovell2 (2142) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - OCT 15, 2012
Pours copper color with white head. Malt aroma. Caramel malt flavor some nutty flavor. Crisp finish. One of the better American Marzens.

bottle on 1/17/2010 by way of ucusty.
orange brown golden tinted pour with an off white head which leaves behind some spotty lacing.
the nose is very nutty, grain-ish and earthy while grass and fruit hide in the back.
the flavor is dominated by caramel and earth with notes of fruitiness, spice and grain following. it is crisp and fresh yet slick and creamy on the palate... nicely textured and very quaffable. surprisingly delicious... 7/4/7/4/17/3.9

from erzbierschof.ch - hazy reddish-brown colour with no foam left; hoppy aroma of red fruits, toasted, earthy and chewy; rounded palate and with a subtle and moderate carbonation; sweet and quite tasty; quite dry and decently bitter; grapefruity hoppy finish with light notes of caramel - very nice mixmasterob (1057) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 25, 2011
Rather dark copper pour with a small white head. Left some good lace and stuck around nicely. Aroma was heavy caramel malt, hints of earthiness and just a note of floral hoppiness. Flavors were quite robust given the style. Loads of crystal with a restrained sweetness. A bit of roast in there too, just a smidge. Very lager like finish, clean as can be with just a hint of bitterness. Smooth and very drinkable. Easily one of the better Marzens I have come across.

Originally reviewed: 11/9/09. Poured into my pint glass. Pours a dark amber/orange with about an inch’s worth of ivory head on top. Little retention, but it left some good lace on the side of the glass. Smells of toasted malts, caramel, and light floral hops.
The mouth is crisp with a moderate amount of carbonation. Nice sweet caramel starts this beer out. Flavors of bread and crackers fill it in; finishes with a mild hop bite. This is pretty good. This is one of their better beers. I’m glad they’ve ventured into the world of lagers. Nice work, Duck-Rabbit!
