Toasted malt aroma with some alcohol mixed in for fun. Pours a clear, amber color with a tight, white head that leaves little to no lacing. The taste features some medium sweetness with a little pepper mixed in. Slick texture with medium body and carbonation coburn_c (12) - Indiana, USA - NOV 1, 2017
Smells sweet and lager-y. Nice copper glow and great lacing. Tastes sweet and light like a marzen should, but with a nite bite of hop on the finish. Thicker than any other marzen I've had, which is my favorite thing about it. Can't stand a sweet beer with no body, like drinking sugar water. Can't detect the oak outside of the thickness, then again I drink whiskey. Evolutionary (526) - Ohio, USA - OCT 27, 2017
Tap at yellow brick. Great pour and head lingered weakly. Notes of bread and malt. Somewhat thin body but smooth. Don’t notice the oak complexity there like it says. Ok but not great. jbethea (69) - Miami, Florida, USA - SEP 26, 2017
Well balanced. Bready malt, candy corn with a hint of oak. Lil on the sweet side, super clean finish. Not too shabby ffaoe (921) - Moorestown, New Jersey, USA - SEP 22, 2017

Pours a beautiful rich amber color. Complex nose of spice, caramel, vanilla, oak, apricot, baked bread and pumpkin spice. Starts off sweet, caramel, apple pie, pumpkin, allspice, nutmeg, baked bread, and biscuits. Has a nice oak taste from the barrel's with a nice kick of alcohol. Has a lightly sweet, thick, rich, and malty finish. Its smooth and drinkable. One of the best Oktoberfest beers, ever!

Draft pour- pours copper with nice latticing. Virtually no aroma to it though. The oaking gives it a bitterness not really seen in this style. Not what i look for it a marzen style. Really no malt to speak of. jmjordan (5) - - SEP 3, 2017 does not count
This beer has a lighter bodied taste than I expected. Though it has a lower stated IBU (22.6), I tasted more of a bitter taste after drinking. Not unpleasant at all... Just was not what I was expecting. Maybe I was wanting more wood notes of the Oak Aging? If I wanted a beer that would be acceptable to a broader group of people, this would be one to consider.

Full-bodied but not overly malt. Good but not great flavor................................

A strong marzen. But nice bready malty beer. Nose is fruity. Flavor is yeasty. Body is creamy. Wood is subtle but obvious. Nutty creamy marzen like well done. I would drink this or get this. Nice hop balance. Well done.
