2.6/5  rDev -16.7%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a mug, served at fridge temp

solid golden with a thin white head.

Aroma: malts, some corn like sweetness, some fragrant hops

mouthfeel: dull

Taste: tastes like an Adjunct lager with slightly stronger flavor.

Notes: Not bad, exactly but the corn is so offputting for me.

11.5 ounce bottle, a friend gave this to me recently. Served in a mug, the beer pours a clear copper color with an inch off-white head that stays around a while. There's also a good amount of lacing. Not much to the weak aroma at all, just some bready malt and toffee. Luckily the taste is stronger. The brew tastes like bready malt, caramel, toffee and a bit of fruit (mostly apple). Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it's a bit creamy and slick with moderate carbonation. I thought it was an OK brew, I wouldn't turn one down. On the other hand, I don't think I'd pay for one either.

3.16/5  rDev +1.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 11.5oz. bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: It has a dark golden to light amber color with a small white head. This heads fades quickly leaving only a thin ring of foam around the edge of the glass. Lacing is non-existent.

Smell: There is only a faint wisp of malt with some spicy and grassy hops.

Taste/Palate: The flavor has a light to medium body with very light roasted malt character that bring just a slight touch caramel like sweetness over a plain cereal like base. This is cut with some light grassy hop flavor and bitterness. It finishes light.

Notes: Overall there is nothing too far off but it came up a bit light for me and I wouldn’t recommend this one.

2.43/5  rDev -22.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

Poured into a shaker: Gold, transparent body under a finger of head that falls to a solid coating. A few bubbles of nucleation.

Smell is...oh boy. Not looking good - smells like circus peanuts or marshmallow fluff or some other sort of fakey, most likely corn-derived sweetness masquerading as malt. Corn Pops, if they tried to make a soda out of it.

Flavor falls right in line, with a weird bubble-gum medicine kind of taste, with the actual fusel-medicinal quality, just a weird artificial sweetness. A little bit of spice, like nutmeg or something, tries to break through, but it's just squelched by the big, weird faux-sweetness. Liquid Rice Krispies treat, not in a good way.

Mouthfeel is actually not bad - medium-bodied, with some heft, & some crispness. Not dead, anyway. Decent.

Overall, not good. I was pleasantly surprised by Labatt's "Perfect Pils", so I had slightly higher expectations for this, but those were for not. Comes across as completely fake, overly sweet, just a misstroke.

Picked this up at the House of 1,000 for a dollar.

A - Doesn't look very dark for a Marzen. A clear yellow, maybe a touch darker than your typical BMC. With little head or lacing.

S - Smell like you added more malt to the skunky pilsner lager know as Labatt Blue. Mild if any biscuit or caramel malts.

T - Not terribly bad but I couldn't get over the corn like lager yeasty body that is Labatt. Like I said it's just like the blue (underwhelming) with more malt giving it a mild caramel taste. Even less biscuit malt taste.

M - Light and skunky, man I can't get used to under hopped skunky lagers.

Overall man am I going to be disappointed since I bought the other two. Not worth seeking out if you love the style but if you need a step up from Blue pick this up... maybe.

11.5 oz brown bottle

Labatt Marzen Limited Edition from the Labatt Brewers Collection poured a clear dark copper body producing a white foamy 1-finger head that left “hit and miss” foamy lacing. Fine fizzy bubbles of carbonation rushed to the top of my glass mug. The Marzen has a moderate aroma and taste of hops and caramel.

Not much more to say about Labatt Marzen other than it is an average Marzen…I was hoping for a little more flavor.

12 ounce bottle, I'm not seeing any bottling dates, or other freshness indications.

Pours clear and kinda light for the style, sports a moderate off white head, then a skimpy film and minor bits of lacing.

Nose of powdered sugar donuts

Just a hint of maple sugary sweetness, and in general, pretty thin flavorwise. Not much of interest going on here.

A. Pours out an amber hue with a thin whitehead that has little retention and some lacing to it.
S. Could pick up some caramel, apple and cinnamon.
T. The taste started out with sweet caramel malts, followed by some apple, cinnamon, and nutmeg. The finish is more sweet malts and has an unoffensive aftertaste.
M. Medium bodied brew with a nice crisp clean easy drinking feel to it.
O. A good Octoberfest beer for first time drinkers of the style.

Had an amber brown appearance with a white head. It smells like it would tastes good but lacks that typical to a marzen. It is very mellow in the mouth and doesn't impress the palate much but leaves a good after taste. Drinks easy for a marzen. Try it out.

I don't ordinarily go for this style, so this macro version should do much for me and it doesn't. It is about as drinkable as any, with less malty taste than I usually expect.

I'm drinking it warm so the head and general appearance are very good - a little light.

Overall, better than expected, but I'm not sure how I will get through a case of these LAbatts specialties.

Pours amber brown from a 11.5 bottle, small head brewed in usa.
smells lightly of malts and caramel. Taste is rather plain not alot going on, rather disappointing in the flavor dept. Feels ok in your mouth very mild not much here. Overall I give it a 3. I myself would not buy it this one it was given me to test!.
