Gordon Biersch Marzen (5/10)

Gordon Biersch's Marzen is an Oktoberfest style beer, offered on draft in their restaurant in Columbus, Ohio.

It pours a deep, rich brown.  The head is thick, off-white in color, and very creamy.

Despite having a lower IBU rating than their Maibock, it seemed quite a bit more bitter.  The dark roasted malts, in the draft I tried, were quite overwhelmed by the Hallertau hops. It wasn't bad, but wasn't a beer I'm in a hurry to have again.

I haven't seen this in bottled form anywhere.

ABV: 5.8%
IBU: 18
My rating: 5/10
