(12 oz. bottle - "Enjoy By: Feb 24 07") Pours light brownish/reddish like apple cider with a few bubbles on top. Smells like rotten apples. Taste is much better, though a bit too sweet. Lots of sweet fruit and honey and a touch of bitter-sweet hoppiness, maybe. Malty. Smooth but a bit too thin. Good light carbonation. Nice finish. goldtwins (4319) - Nesconset, New York, USA - OCT 16, 2006
Poured a hazy copper color with a large off-white head. Caramel malty aroma with light notes of fruit and brown sugar. The flavor starts fruity then turns to caramel. Semi-dry finish. hophead75 (2012) - Largo, Florida, USA - OCT 16, 2006
bottle. Pours a clear amber/copper. The aroma is toasted and/or slight roasted malt, some hops. Taste is toasted/slight roasted malt, some caramel malt, with a balanced hop presence. JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 15, 2006
Clear copper body. Soapy, bubbly off-white head.
Aroma has dried grass and crackers. Lots of miscellaneous sweet notes throughout.
Flavor is much of the same, some sticky sweetness in a dry crackery base. Quite good and for me, like a german style, but with hints of american influence. The malt profile seems simple, yet deceptively complex.

Bottle sample at Clifton Beer Fest. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly diminished with fair lacing. Moderate toasted sweet malt aroma. Medium body with soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration.

UPDATED: NOV 11, 2006 A little darker than yer typical pale yellow american beer. No haze, transparent. Less than average carbonation. Slight bitter hops on the flavor and in the finish, probably not to style. Smooth, as advertised. Moonglow is better. kmweaver (3208) - Petaluma, California, USA - OCT 8, 2006
12oz bottle. Reddish tea-like appearance with an orange hue; medium off-white head with good retention and lacing. Nose is very sweet, showing grapes and candy sugar. Mouthfeel shows crisp carbonation, tea-like dryness, plenty of candy sugar, floral hops, and slightly vegetal (a fact my fiance won’t shut up about - kudos to 1FastSTi for pegging it as corn; she’s now appeased). Light-to-medium finish. This is decent, but would earn a few points without the vegetal aspect. jefcon (1935) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - OCT 7, 2006
Clear and light brown, plain in the glass. Very bready aromas with some light caramel. Lots of carbonation/gas on the palate. Kind of thin. Caramel presence and some bready elements, but nothing too exciting. There are many better beers from the good folks at Victory. Headbanger (4022) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - OCT 4, 2006
12oz bottle-Aroma of malt on an amber body with a white head that dissipated quickly. A malty taste with caramel and toffee on the back end. Nice tasting brew. pbjclimber (150) - Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 2, 2006
Tap: Pours a mild amber color. Flavor is of some sweet malts with a bit of alcohol and a little bit of hops. This is not a very complex, flavorful, or very good marzen.
