burg326 (3589) - 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.

Pours a clear orange color with sticky lacing. Musky aroma. Great marzen palate and a fine example of what an Octoberfest should be.

ChainGangGuy (4353) - Marietta, 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.

NachlamSie (2737) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 16, 2009
On tap. this is a cloudy copper beer with a particularly good looking head.The aroma is sharp, though smooth with no vegetation or corn. It’s just slightly zesty with bread, biscuits, and paper. The palate is slick with a well balanced flavor. Something about this is slightly different from the usual Oktoberfest. It is smoother, yet does not lack flavor. Less wooden notes and less lager esters are apparent. More citrus and biscuits are detected in the flavor. This is a nice sessionable lager. Quite a surprise.

unclemattie (4136) - Georgia, USA - MAR 5, 2009
On tap, during the 5SN Oktoberfest Party. Lots of dancing, lots of great food, lots of beer. Liters at a time. Appearance was very hazy, light orange-tan. Very bready aroma. Nice sweet malt, flavor finishes very bready. Strong too! ouch
