COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is as traditional as it gets. We use all German malt: Vienna, Munich, and CaraMunich. For hops we use the traditional Oktoberfest hops: German Tettnang and Czech Saaz. We use a Bavarian lager yeast and allow the beer to lager for over 2 months. It is unfiltered, yet pretty clear due to the extended lagering time, just the way it used to be.

brokensail (14558) - San Leandro, California, USA - NOV 6, 2015
On tap @ 5 Seasons Westside. Clear amber colored beer with white foam. A little on the sweeter side than I’d like, but a lot of good toast and bread. Some baked apple esters, floral hops, and some spice. Light earthy notes as well. Pretty nice Oktoberfest.

Clear bronze. Powdery, lager aroma. Tasty, straw and malt. Low bittering. Lightish body. Fair.

Cybercat (4436) - Georgia, USA - OCT 4, 2014
Pours a very tempting orangy Amber with a fairly thick pale buff head. Strong aroma has malty, fruity, and woody notes. Flavor is boldly malty and woody, while Apple and pear and a bit of evergreen back it up. Texture has average thickness but fizz to spare. Prost!

aracauna (3354) - Georgia, USA - SEP 27, 2014
Did not realize the recipe changed, but thus seems a little lighter bodied, less chewy, more peppery hops. Easier to down a liter.

travita (4642) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 15, 2013
Tap. The look is clear, off white head, and amber in color. The smell is caramel, grainy, cereal, and malt. The taste is sweet, grainy, malt, and caramel.

burg326 (5090) - Florida, USA - DEC 13, 2012
On draft at the brewery, poured a deep orangish amber color with aromas of biscuits, caramel, toast, and some malt. Flavors are the same, light sweetness in the aftertaste, the caramel flavor was nice, and overall a decent marzen overall.

DrinkEmUpJones (1069) - Georgia, USA - NOV 20, 2011
Pours a clear orange color with sticky lacing. Musky aroma. Great marzen palate and a fine example of what an Octoberfest should be.

Orange amber, whitish cover. Sweet aroma, toasted malt, caramel. Taste is toasty, caramel, clean solid marzen. Rating at 5 Seasons Westside. Golden orange, whitish head. Husky, grainy, toast, caramel aroma. Taste is spicy, caramel, grainy, sweet finish. Original rating: 7:3:7:3:14

ChainGangGuy (4657) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - NOV 3, 2009
Appearance: Served up a clear, coppery-amber body with a half inch of whitish foam. Smell: Displays a modestly toasted breadiness with an extremely subtle, restrained Noble hop aroma. Taste: The flavor is dominated by the sweet bready character of the German malts and complimented by a touch of mild spicy Noble hops and bitterness. Faint blip of yeastiness. A few more flourishes of sweetened bread crusts, a crisp finish, and you’re out. Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-light carbonation. Drinkability: As is the case with any well-crafted Oktoberfest brew, it excels in overall drinkability.
