Salmoniform (1272) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - OCT 31, 2014
Poured from bottle to glass. Golden straw hue with thick fizzy white head. Aroma is bread, cereal, slight sulphur, slight clove. Mouthfeel is great with a light body and crisp carbonation. Taste is dry throughout with a spicy hop following and slight sulphur finish. Overall this is a quite enjoyable Oktoberfest brew.

Noble hops, clear lager smell in the nose. Clear golden with thick frothy head. Great lager, very smooth and balanced. People who rate this beer low don’t know what they talking about or just centered on hoppy ipas.

Oakes (16969) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 16, 2001
Combines the two styles brilliantly, with the aromatic maltiness playing off of the toasty notes.

Cobra (1100) - - AUG 19, 2007
12 oz. bottle. Fresh 2007 batch. Poured out a golden straw yellow color, with a sticky white head. Aromas are of summer grains, Vienna malts abound. Earthy hop aroma. Flavors are of Vienna malts, fresh bread sticks, slightly sweet also. Decent body, medium mouthfeel. Decent German beer overall. I’m surprised it isn’t rated higher than it is.

joeymacaroni (309) - Wagontown, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 12, 2008
drinks like a pilsner. really good. pours deep straw-gold with a thick white head. aroma is a little metallic, a little funky...mostly though, it’s a spicy, floral and bready aroma. light honeysuckle. taste is awesome; great balance between the maltiness and the spicy hop character. clean, spicy, malty finish. light carbonation, medium oiliness.

On tap at Maxs. Clear golden in color with a little white head. Hoppy and malty aroma. Caramel notes. Grainy malty and hoppy flavor. Citrusy notes. Crisp and clean tasting. Dry finish. Medium bodied. Nice beer.

rjplumer (1049) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 18, 2011
Has a nice floral aroma. Mild bitterness. Clear deep gold color. Reminds me of a pilsner in a way. A pleasant brew overall. Sweet but dry finish.

Beerheart65 (1503) - Pori, FINLAND - SEP 28, 2012
Pure but mild aroma has slightly earthy malting. Clear straw, creamy white head is dense but short. Taste has also bit zcech feel: butter, grass. Medium body, soft feel, easy to drink, nice palate, some bitterness. Basic, pure and simple easy-to-drink beer. As that works nicely.

Pours a clear straw golden with a thick eggshell head that leaves some nice thick dripping lace. Nose involves some fresh hoppy citrus notes, spice, doughy yeast, and cellar notes. Somewhat sweet, fairly bitter. Light-medium body, creamy, tingly, with a nice bitter hop finish. Very light in color for a marzen, but a nice drinkable brew.
