bottle, thanks to exiled, orange amber color with malty woody aroma, flavor is mild fruity malt, finish is medium not a standard marzen BBB63 (6567) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - APR 21, 2012
Bottle and served in non-nik pint glass: Basic amber hue with very little head and no lace. The aroma has a lactic acid and soured fruity vapour along with a lot of heavy crystal malts, slight oak and earthy esters. The taste is not as acidic as I feared but it is sweet to the point of becoming cloy. I guess there is some tannic oak upon the finish along with a dash of pepper. The mouth feel is sticky and slick but far too under-carbonated. Just not all that good in a genre that has a lot of meh beers, give me a Marzen from Capital or Ayinger. nuplastikk (6456) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 19, 2011
On tap at Revolution. Orange-brown color. Thin, steady head. Malty and rich. Very well done, manages to "imperialize" the style with getting sloppy or going overboard. Smooth caramel and doughy malt tones. Minimal to no hop tones. A great beer. kaser (6382) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 10, 2014
Slight fruits and mild pumkin and malty flavor to this. Rather bland but not offensive. Butterscotch and sweet. 12oz bottle pour at home - amber color with barely any white head thedm (6319) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JUN 25, 2012
This draft brew poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were quickly diminishing and left behind a softly carbonated hazy light orange brown colored body and a good lacing. The aroma was mild malt. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The strange flavor gave me an initial response of its bad due to the sour off tasting sour malt oak backing. A horrible one that I would rather not drink again. Drain poured.

Tan with a hint of copper in color. Somewhat fluffy light khaki head. Fairly weak head. I catch hints of toasted malt and sour mash and a wisp of noble hops, but not enough to make me take notice. Starts sweet with toasted malt and caramel notes. Hints of oak and floral hops. Pleasing in a sweet marzen way. A bit more toasted malt and tone down the caramel and floral notes and this one is golden. 10/14

Nose is of toasted nuts, some darker fruits, caramel, and light oak notes which i initially thought was hops but now realize that this is oak aged. Interestring. Pours bright golden orange amber with no head or lace. Almost looks like iced tea. The flavor is moderately sweet with notes of toasted nuts and bread, caramel, darker fruits, a touch of wood, a touch of earthy dryness as well. Smooth with moderate carbonation. Interesting. thirdeye11 (6162) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 24, 2010
(22oz bottle thanks to Exiled) clear rich copper with nose of grass, rhubarb, melon. Taste of rye, light orange, sweet bread, caramel and lightly carbonated body. Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - OCT 12, 2010
Thanks to Exiled for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours an orangish-amber color with a white head. The aroma is fairly one-dimensional and is dominated by toffee from the malt. The flavor is toffee and grassy/earthy hops with a tad bit of smoke mixed in. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Skyview (6099) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - SEP 5, 2016
Picked up single 12-oz bottle from Heritage Liquors in Maplewood, MN. Pours a semi-clear golden amber colored brew with an average sized off-white head that slowly dissipates. Aroma of roasted sweet caramel malt, a hint of floral hops and a touch of cream tartar Taste is medium bodied with flavors of sweet caramel malt and floral hops and a touch of fruit. Finish is semi-sweet with a caramel malt and floral hops. A nice Munich style oktoberfest and even has some aging smoothness detected in the finish.
