This is an awesome beer. Don’t know why it is so short in the ratings. I have sampled an array of German beers and this is very distinct. Almost Belgian in influence. Like oak casts. Must be tried to be appreciated. Wulfstan (509) - California, USA - MAR 11, 2008
This is a nice, interesting vienna that actually seems to be crossed with a pilsner. It is lighter/golden amber with a medium off-white head that is long lasting and leaves some fairly good, thin lace. The aroma is sweetish, mildly caramelly and leaf-like malt and dough with pine and herb hops and a hint of sulphur; very nice. The taste is similar, a little earthy, carmale malt body with lots of herbal, grassy hop flavour; tingly, with a light, persistent bitterness that just dominates the sweetish body. It is lighter than many viennas, but has a lot more hop character than usual, reminiascent of pilsners, with great balance between the elements. It is very drinkable.

UPDATED: OCT 3, 2017 Tap at T&P. Fairly clear orange color, light carbonation. Malty aroma. Bready grain. Light sweetness. Flavor is sweet bread, Malta and grains. Light bitterness. Quite refreshing. This is a well made marzen. Dragonblaze99 (353) - Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 4, 2002
Sweet and spicy with a firm malty body. Crisp and well-balanced. All in all a very pleasant beer.
