2.98/5 rDev -20.1%
Opaque amber color with a thin head.
Getting some wet hay and grapefruit smell.
Moderately malty first, then some bitterness to round it out. Simple, but hits the notes for the style. Has an interesting bitter/pine aftertaste.
Medium body with moderate carbonation, though it has a fizziness to it like seltzer water.
Fairly average beer.

3.4/5 rDev -8.8%
Roughly about 3 fingers of head with a nice lace that hung around for a while. Color was a deep copper color. Smell was mostly Marzen. Started off sweet and trailed off with a bit more of a sourness but not unpleasantly so. I enjoyed the taste. Very nice on a cooler fall evening.

1493rd Review on BA
Bottle to Pint
Thanks to Thebishopco for this
App- A deep rich mix of copper and ambers. Good density in the middle with a bit of yellows on the outside. A small white head with a 1/4".
Smell- Its a good solid malty, small spice oktoberfest. The smells are a bit small but blended well together. Not a stunner but solid.
Taste- I enjoyed this but not even close to an import oktoberfest. A small spicy malty flavor with touches of a spice.
Mouth- A light body with a semi light medium carbonation. A residual malty backbone is there.
Drink- I traded for the state tick. It was nice to get AR. This was a nice Oktoberfest just needs a bit more.

Poured into a pint glass
Appearance: orange/amber with a half finger head that vanishes pretty quick; some lacing.
Smell: malty, with caramel and hops
Taste: Pow, this is a little kickier marzen, which I like. Malt comes through with spices. Nutty, bready with a light hop finish.
Mouthfeel: light to medium; good carbonation
Overall: This marzen rocks! Would definitely go for a 6-er. The taste really grabbed me and held on for an encore. I'm saving some for Halloween. Yum!

Freshness dating lets me know was either bottled in July or is good until July of some unspecified year ( I'll presume the former )
Pours an effervescent caramel with a pinky of sand colored head. Great lacing & average head retention
S: Pears, metallic hops, plums & toasty malt
T: Follows the with a lovely toasty malt baclbone & some woody & herbal hops up front. Slight oaky dryness meld with caramel, some plummy notes & ever so, slight metallic hop twang, plus a hint of pear juice & breadyness. Finishes fruity, toasty, & dry with herbal/metallic hops providing nice balance
MF: Medium bodied, soft carboantion, love the balance here, does thin out a touch as this warms, the only factor keepong me from giving this a 4.5 here
Easily one of the best Marzens I've had in a long while. Will pick some more given the chance. The malt forward stuff from this brewery are their stars IMO & this the best one I've tried so far. Well dome Diamond Bear!

A: The beer pours a bright amber-brown with a rocky off-white head. It's got a little yeast haze but is still transparent. Pretty good head retention for the style.
S: The aroma is mostly caramel with an earthy yeast tone and an herbal hoppiness. The malt has a tasty German character. It's a bit nutty.
T: It's mildly sweet with a drying finish and a gentle hop bite. There's a lot of nice German flavor bouncing around. Easy to drink and fairly refreshing.
M: Mouthfeel is pretty standard. Average carbonation. A bit slick.
O: This is a surprisingly tasty beer, particularly for one that I was mostly looking forward for the state tick. It's got some nice, authentic German flavor and a nicely balanced tone.

First had: on tap at Flying Saucer, Little Rock, AR
Pretty typical märzen. Poured amber with a receding white head. Caramel malts on the nose, and similar in the taste with some earthiness, and a bit of hop bitterness in the end. Medium mouthfeel; decently drinkable.
