harrisoni (18809) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 30, 2016
On tap at BrewDog Shepherds Bush, clear gold lasting white head best looking beer of the day no doubt. It smells like your typical marzen. Sweetish lager malty with some hop. Good drinkability in the mouth. Some hop character. Some malt sweetness. Like sweet straw. Once you adjust to it it’s pretty good. Hoppy finish. Yes It Won Me Over

Combines the two styles brilliantly, with the aromatic maltiness playing off of the toasty notes.

Draugh ("Weihenstephaner Festbier")
It’s an oktoberfest/märzen. Golden color, creamy white head. Sweet malty and yeasty nose. Medium-bodied. Malty in the finish, some fruity hops with trefoil and grass. Clean but not very interesting.

brokensail (16486) - Dublin, California, USA - APR 30, 2010
A: The pour is a slightly cloudy, yellow pour with a short lived white head. S: The nose is bready and biscuity with a slight spiciness and some lightly floral and citrusy hops. T: There’s plenty of spicy and sweet orange hop flavor. The malt provides a bit of bready flavor and substance, though the beer is fairly light. M: The body is quite light on the tongue with a bubbly carbonation. D: I don’t think Weihenstephaner makes a bad beer, and this one follows that trend. A nice light beer with some pleasant flavor.

Keg (St. Urhos, Helsinki)
Light orange, brief head. Big honey, and light malt aroma. Soft palate, but lively carbonation. Sweet malty body, also honey. Very refreshing and full-flavoured marzen.

MiP (15920) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 11, 2007
Bottle, 5.8% at KØ07. Bready aroma. Pale yellow colour, very small white head. The flavour is quite thin, some bread. Disappointing.

bhensonb (15342) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 14, 2007
Bottle. Aroma of light citrus and bread. Slightly hazy gold color with a white head that ringed and laced. More of a fruit aroma as the glass approaches the lips. Thin to medium bodied with very mild, nigh creamy, carbonation. It’s lightly sweet, a bit fruity, and there’s a very little bitter that builds over time. The finish is more dry than sweet, it’s got some light fruit, and a bit of bitter. Floral hop? Not your typical lager. Very tasty indeed.

Ratman197 (14958) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - NOV 20, 2011
Bottle poured a clear gold with a lingering rin g of white foam. Aromas of bread, straw and light citrus. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of bread, straw and light citrus with a crisp dry finish.

2.6
DSG (14921) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - OCT 17, 2014
Draught at Temple Bar Rotschild. Clear golden with a small white head. Aroma of grainy and bready malt and some diacetyl. Sweetish flavor with grainy and bready malt, some butterscotch and a drier finish, mildly bitter and a bit crisp. Light to medium-bodied. Probably better without poe diacetyl (possibly from dirty tap lines?) but still quite easy-drinking.

3.2
imdownthepub (14745) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2008
Bottled fro Asda, Leamington Spa. Yellow gold with light head. Light malty beer with just the faintest hints of spiciness lingering in the background. There is a citric, lemony foreground, some hops and a gentle carbonation. It’s fine and went well with a Chinese Takeaway.
