Great beer. One of the best Octoberfests I’ve had. Discovered a few years ago and have found there are very few that can match the taste of the, caramely delicious flavor and after taste.

cattaneopapa (291) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 27, 2016
500ml bottle from LCBO. 5.8% alc/vol Pours a clear deep golden colour with 1/2 finger of white head that reduces to a cap. Aromas of roasted matls, caramel, toffee, and a whiff of honey with some grainy notes. Taste matches the aroma. Medium-bodied with moderate carbonation. Very enjoyable.

Can’t believe that i haven’t rated this one yet... 500mL bottle served in a shaker- poured transparent copper color, half finger white head formed and laced very well and lasted for over 10 minutes while the other half had some tasks for me (ugh- it’s me time damnit!). Aroma of freshly baked bread, yeast, and wholesome goodness. Hits the mouth with a light-medium body, malt isn’t overly sweet and comes across nicely, middle holds up well, finish is slightly sweet and has some fruit. Very delightful!

wombat23 (626) - Texas, USA - APR 25, 2016
Shared 16.9 oz. bottle. Pour is deep gold and hazy with a thick white head. Aroma is bready, caramel, and light floral hops. Taste follows nose. Finish is mildly bitter and mildly sweet. Very drinkable.

darbeer75 (440) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - APR 24, 2016
Aroma: malty and sweet with underlying hops; Appearance: clear amber with medium white head that dissipates slowly; Taste: malty and sweet with some bready, apple-like flavors; Palate; medium body with crisp, long and sweet finish; Overall: pretty good but not my favorite style. Would drink again.

Stuedmaster (345) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 23, 2016
500 ml bottle, pour is amber with a slight head. Aroma of caramel malt, bread, toffee, hard candy, slight citrus. Well balanced, earthy flavor tending toward sweet...rich yet refreshing. Has some fruity, floral, and mineral notes, creamy texture, average carbonation, smooth finish. One of the better versions of this style, similar to a Vienna lager but with more caramel.

Cristobal37 (766) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 2, 2016
Amber color. Caramel and bread. Smooth and really tasty. Probably the best Marzen I’ve had yet. Crisp and refreshing with loads of maltiness and creamy head.

Metalchopz (3055) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 23, 2016
Slightly hazy amber colour with a golden hue. Warm cap, kind of creamy, decent lasting and some good lacing. Bread malt aromas with caramel notes and some sweet fruitiness (dates, mild raisins). Hints of nuttiness. The taste is not as sweet, but still has some fruits, light caramel and hops in the finish. The blend between the hops and malts is quite nice in the aftertaste, which saves the flavours (as a little too mild, but rich with time). Pretty good for the style.

500 ml bottle from the LCBO. Pours an amber colour with a generous head. Aroma is bread, malt. Taste is same, plus grass and some fruits. Pretty good.

Hands down the best widely available Oktoberfest. It has a typical flavor profile of an Oktoberfest while being more drinkable, more flavorful, and smoother than the Paulaner or the Hacker.

I am going to pass on the mouth feel, aroma, starts with this ends with that nonsense with this one. This is the best marzen I have ever consumed. Spaten and Paulaner are still world class, but this is the best!
