On tap. A good Marzen, better than Spaten’s. It was full of spices, though not as refresing as most lagers, but that’s mainly due to it being a Marzen.

bottle from a local german restauraunt. pours dark orange with a nice tan head. taste is sweet and refreshing. maybe a little too filling for an oktober fest, or maybe all the sausage i ate was what was filling. pretty malty tasting, but not bad. i like this, and id buy it again if i see it. good

Had this one a while back but forgot to rate it. This a sweet one for an oktoberfest style of beer. Easy to drink and very refreshing.

Nice and malty and very much in the vein I like this style. Not too syrupy sweet and very easily drinkable.

Surprisingly light orangish hue for an Ofest, with a super head. Pungent sweet caramel aroma. Alcohol-malt on the tongue, but it mellows well after the first gulp. Man, I want a bratwurst now.

Dark honey-brown color is nice. The taste is a bit less malty and more bitter than most Oktoberfest braus. Nice head formation.

2003 bottle. A very slightly clouded orange yellow with some bright gold tinges. Aroma of soft and sweet nutty flavored malt and ample spiced hops. Quite enticing. Flavor is right away, moderately malty, brown bread, honey, touch of toffee and has a brilliant but short-lived crisp, clean spicy hops finish. Not a muddled note in this beer. It gets in your mouth does its thing, and clears out. Very even texture, light carbonation. I left this in the sun by accident and came back and finished off half the bottle at about 70 degrees and it was still delightful. No thinning or wateriness in here either. Quite spicy; no real daring flavors but well-made and delicious.
