Dark color for a oktoberfest. Brown with yellowish foam. Smoky flavor. Tasted some bitterness. Maybe its been a while, but this does not feel like an oktoberfest. A decent beer, but not really of the style I was expecting. More like a old fashioned ale.

I know it’s far from fall but I couldn’t help grab this. Bomber into snifter glass, clear deep rusty-amber with light tan head. Aroma of toast, brown sugar and faint earthy hops. Taste adds roast malt sweetness, caramel, nuttiness, light cocoa and fruity hop bitterness. Light-medium body, low-moderate carbonation, soft with roasty sweet finish. Pretty straight forward marzen.

Dark reddish brown, fizzy head, no lacing. Sweet caramel, herbal, biscuity, nutmeg aroma. Mild taste, chewy malt dominant, very light citrus hop. Sour finish. Overall, pretty subtle and average.

Nice deep copper color - light aroma. Mild smooth malty flavor with little bitterness. Reminded me of Killians. Above average, but not great.

This beer has a dark color to it with head that is thick and has decent sized bubbles. There is a sweet smell of chocolate malt and mild hops. As you drink it you taste the chocolate and coffee with some intence hops. there is also a bitter taste that sticks around in your mouth for a while after you drink it.

Aroma is slightly reminiscent of a Flemish sour ale, as is the taste. Deliciously even, moderately complex palate. Really a great beer overall.

Pours a hazy dark amber, almost tea like. Caramel malt aroma, some fruit notes. Roasted malt, caramel taste. No great finish to speak of, and kind of watery. Meh, okay lager

Pint at ABC in Harrisburg. Pours a surprisingly brown color (looked orange on the menu) with a light, off white-head. Thought it combined the signature flavors of a stout and lager and not so much a marzen. Light-medium bodied. Again, combining the features of a lager and a stout. Not bad.
