    Aroma: 4 | Appearance: 7 | Mouthfeel: 4 | Flavor: 5 | Overall: 5

    pours a orangey, peachy golden color with a few streams of bubbles and a bone white head that falls fast but leaves a touch of lacing. The aroma consists of faint malts with light toasty note, some lager aroma, a bit of earthy hops, rather clean. The taste has some toasty character and melanoidans, but it lacks underlying sweetness or really any depth and roundness to the malts. Hops are earthy with spicy and herbal notes. They come across rather strong without adequate malts to balance them. The mouthfeel is medium body, but a little over carbonated.

    I read somewhere that this is an old Oktoberfest recipe that Herr Busch brought with him to America. I find it hard to believe that Germans ever drank garbage like this. Very thin, the colour is tad on the lighter side, and the aromas are very weak. Flavour was wet sawdust.

    Surprisingly not as bad as I was expecting - actually a pretty decent marzen. Clear copper color, medium white head with abundant lacing. Aroma of caramel and roasted malt. Slightly thin in the mouth and a bit flat. Lacking in complexity and character, but drinkable.

    An amber-copper colored beer. A moderate sized, dense frothy, creamy white head. Got some hang time here. The lacing is pronounced. The aromas are light weight. Barely detectable sweet malt. A medium bodied neer. Dry on the finish and impressively smooth. The tasting follows the nose. A light weight, but in that definitely far from offensive. Light tastes of soft-sweet malt. Much better than the Spaten I’d tried earlier in this comparison tasting.

    Not bad. Michelob has made a good beer. This was in the sampler pack. Will have again and again, especially at the holidays, when I found it first, even though is supposed to be enjoyed in October.

    This brew poured a dark copper with minimal lacing. The aroma was very mild hop/malt and a bit a tin in the background. The flavor was well advertised by the aroma, nothing special. The mouthfeel was thin. This was a drinkable beer.

    This was my least favorite out of the craft beer sampler case. First the aroma was like an old pilsner with metallic hints. Unfortunely the taste was pretty similar to the aroma. Overall this wasnt a good beer and i wont purchase it again.

    Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12oz bottle into a pint glass. Appearance: The head is has a slightly off white color and it builds up thick and foamy. It slowly fades down to a wispy thin layer that just hangs on until the end. There is very little lacing to speak of. The body has a light golden amber color with very good clarity. Smell: Its aroma is light and has a sweet grainy character with a very mild hop presence. Taste/Mouth feel: The flavor has a simple light grain and mild sweetness with a good balance of earthy and floaral hops. The texture is smooth and slightly slick with mild carbonation. Its body is about medium. Notes: Overall I feel that it is a rather boring Marzen.

    Just tasted their Pale ale, poured it out and on to the Marzen ,which is a bit better but still is poor. Aroma was promising, just about right for the style, lots of sweet malts scents and maybe a touch of pepper. Very pale copper colored ( a bit too pale) and transparent with a poor head that doesn't last and doesn't lace. Mouth is OK, a bit thin but not too bad. Flavor has the same problems as the Pale, decent malt body but lots of off flavors as well, again metalic and medicine. I think its adjuncts, or some cheap method of bittering. Why are they making this crap? what is the point? They are just going to teach people to drink other beers!

    Clear copper color with brown highlights. A collapsing, small head with little lacing. Faint noble hops and sweet bread malt aromas. Light to medium bodied with a crisp mild hop bite. Drinks with great ease. Caramel and doughy with some hop flavors, the taste is thin and dull. This Marzen lacks depth, decent drink but poor to it's style.
