A: The beer pours a light amber color with a finger of white head.
S: Smells strongly of bubblegum...okay? A bit of bread and toasted malt. Some earthy hop notes and a definite caramel malt. Maybe a bit of metal to it, too.
T: Like the aroma, intense bubblegum flavor. Earthy hops with a light bitterness. Lots of caramel and toffee flavors with a little bit of spices. A little bit of toasted bread.
M: Medium bodied with a medium carbonation.
O: The bubblegum just ruined this for me. DasBierChef (1083) - Hudson, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 4, 2011
Pours a clear amber. Aroma is malty and sweet. Taste offers more maltiness. Not quite true to a Marzen style. But tasty nonetheless. BVery (11222) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - SEP 3, 2011
Tap at the brewpub in Lake Mills, WI. Clear orange pour with minimal head. Caramel and earthy nose. Medium bodied, carbonated. Taste is caramel, a short-lived sharp hop bite, and bread. Drake (14059) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 13, 2011
Served on draft at the brewery. Pours a clear amber color with a creamy white head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of toasted malts and grassy hops. The taste is toasted malts, green apple and a bitter hop finish. Medium bodied. crossovert (13724) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 10, 2011
12 oz brown twist-off bottle.
It pours a nice amberish/orange with a white head that sticks for a bit but doesn’t leave much lacing.
The smell is simple, nutty grains and a bit of fruitiness.
The flavor almost brings a saltiniess. There is a noticeable hop bite, buttery malts and a hint of nuttiness. It is a bit sweet and bitter for the style.
It is middle-of-the-raod oktoberfest territory.

Pint at Sugar Maple. Clear amber pour with a thin off-white head. Nose is malt, caramel, light noble hop and a bit of roast. Toasty caramel malt flavor with a crisp and bitter noble hop finish. Nice. 17thfloor (2443) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 11, 2010
12oz bottle. Pours a glowing orange red with a smaller fizzy grayish head. Nice spicy cinnamon like aroma, clean, love the munich malt, light sweetness, clean and nice. Flavor follows, exceptionally clean, medium bitterness, bit of toastiness, very well balanced and exceptionally drinkable, fairly bitter in the finish with a lingering spiciness, this is quite nice and simple. Very enjoyable, medium bodied, watery feel but with larger soft carbonation. Very nice. This is pretty damn good... looking for ways to bump the score a bit... cbfobes (2885) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - AUG 22, 2010
On tap at the brewery in a stein, pours a nice clear amber color with a thick white head, the aroma was very sweet with malt and the flavor has a great malt finish, very smooth and nice. 5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 3, 2010
Bottle:   Amber, thin sudsy off-white head, sparce lacing, minimal carbonation.   Bready nose, slightly mealy, slight honeycomb.   Quite malty on the tongue, sweet, but again with the slight honeycomb.   Slight
overcooked vegetable notes.   Subtle, but its there.   Thinking this one is on the way down.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Nice malty finish, semi-sweet, perhaps a little bit of caramel and/or toffee.   I can
see where this one would be pretty tasty had I drank it fresh.   Still, fairly enjoyable.   Thanks Bob! kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 25, 2009
12 oz bottle. Pours a bright clear copper body with a small fizzy light beige head that fell to a wispy film. The nose is toasty and munich malt with a touch of huskiness. Some light caramel. The flavor is a lot more grainy and husky than I’d like with minimal munich malt sweetness. Finishes dry and toasty with that odd husky quality. Medium bodied with a moderate carbonation level. Not the best example of the style.
