Nice bronze gold color.Fresh malt and hops aroma. Slightly nutty flavor. Lacks toasted flavors which I fell are essential to this style - but still a very good beer.

Hmmmm....I think I like Paulaner better. This just seems to light and watery for me. Nice caramel hint though. Definately not bad, but not one of my first choices.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nice golden color with a big frothy head that lasts. Rich malty aroma that smells like a beer is supposed to. The taste is slightly hoppy, slightly malty, with a hint of fruitiensess that I normaly am not a big fan of, but works well here. You can taste a little of that 5.8% in the finsih, but its not at all overpowering. Overall a very good beer, I intend to buy it again, and soon.

I never met a Marzen I didn’t like. That said, I had a bottle of this after work. This brew
pours a hazy honey color with floaties. The fully lasting large creamy off-white head has
excellent lacing. The balanced and pleasant nose hints of dark bread, cereal, herbs, spruce,
citrus, earth, pineapple, honey, spices and alcohol. The moderate balanced sweet then
bitter flavor is not astoundingly complex, but is very nice. The medium soft
dry body is on the edge of creaminess, and finishes moderately alcoholic. I love this
style. I love this brew.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very cloudy light amber color with a huge foamy head. Bottle was sedimented? Light caramel and toffee notes in the aroma. Sweet flavor, but restrained a bit, with nice caramelized flavors and some yeastiness. Smooth and just a little flat. Light alcohol warming in the finish. Bottle was of unknown age, possibly detracting from the flavor.

Orangish in appearance, the subtle malting becomes more apparent in aroma and flavor as the beer warms. A bit light-bodied, however, the low roasted malts are pleasant, yet undemanding on the palate. A very easy to drink offering that I may have underrated on this occassion.

this beer looks like an oktoberfest should. golden-orange with a creamy, persistent head. any lacing falls quickly from the side of the glass. subtle bread in the aroma. clean grain, with a dry, and slightly sweet finish. lively mouthfeel, with a metallic tinge. an ideal oktoberfest, the best i’ve had yet.
