Dark amber color. Thin, cream-colored head that leaves a nice lace on the sides of the glass. With a typical marzen style malty aroma, the beer has a nice sweetness up front and a good hop balance. This is a good session beer.

Pours a clear golden orange color with a nice tannish head that never fuly leaves. Toasty malt is all over the nose with some very subtle hop aromas in the background. Sweetly toasted malt hits the tongue with some very smooth characteristics. Mild hop bitterness stays in the background and balances this brew nicely. Smooth, somewhat creamy, and yet not too sweet and cloying. This brew is very drinkable. No big surprises in this one, but definitely a pretty spot on example of the style. This is a brew I would definitely enjoy quaffing again.

Medium-to-dark copper color (darker than most Deutsch Marzen Biers), thin, fine head, and minimal lace. Had a pleasant, spicy and malty nose. Reminded me of Spaten in Munchen at the Fest. Mouthfeel was cool!. As for flavor, had a good balance of malt and hops, though neither side was pronounced enough to satisfy. Malt could have been sweeter; hops could have have more of a spice-bite. All-in-all, not bad.

Medium to dark amber in color with lasting head and thick lace. Slight sweet smell with ample hop floral aroma. Very rich and full tasting. Nice mouth-coating mouthfeel. Full of flavors from slight hop bitterness to touch of sweet carmel sweetness. Finishes slightly bitter and slightly yeasty. Makes you feel you are at a Biergarten!!

A medium-bodied amber color that elegantly combines a touch of malty sweetness with a pleasingly subtle aromatic hop character. Nice carmel/ toffee notes, Mouthfeel is pretty smooth. Overall an enjoyable fest beer that is offered year round. My second favorite from stoudts next to the scarlet lady.
