COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bayern Oktoberfest is the classic Bavarian Dark Märzen: not too sweet yet malty with a nice hop flavor. This beer is brewed with Pilsener, Munich and German Dunkel malt. The hops for this special brew come straight from the Hallertau region in northern Bavaria and the finishing hops are Saaz from the Czech Republic. Bayern’s fastest selling seasonal specialty beer, this beer is not just called Oktoberfest, it is Oktoberfest beer. It is brewed according to the standards of the Brewers’ Guild of Munich, which was established in 1815 when they brewed this beer for the first time to celebrate the royal wedding of King Ludwig I and Princess Maria Theresia.

Bottle thanks to swalden28. Poured deep amber/brown with an off white head. Aroma was raisin, brown sugar, caramel, and earthy notes. Flavor was pretty much the same with a medium body and low carbonation. Odd o fest.

Bottle. Pours brown with red hues and tan head. Aroma has a nice dark roasted maltiness with notes of nut and very doughy/bready. Flavor is much the same with a nice sweet and subtle spicy profile With a touch of dark fruit. Medium mouthfeel with high carbonation. Overall, not the usual Marzen but I enjoyed.

Draft at the Rhino. Hazy dark brown with the colors of autumn leaves at the edges. Awwww. Big dense creamy gray head that goes away. Cabbagey nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toast, old leaves, and cabbage on the mid-palate. Mild vegetal finish.

Beerdrinker79 (1978) - Idaho, USA - MAR 14, 2011
12 oz. bottle- Pours dark brown with a thin tan head, little lacework. Aroma is chocolate malts, nuts, and brown sugar. The flavor is dark roasted malts, more caramel than chocolate malt, brown sugar, mild bitterness which is very refreshing, I actually like it, I really like it. Ok I don’t really like it, I was just imitating that Mikey cereal commercial from when I was a kid, but it’s not bad. Carbonation is low, body is thin, finish is bitter and sweet.

First tried at the brewery/pub in Missoula, MT during the first Oktoberfest in 1988. Pours darker than most would consider for an Oktoberfest/Marzen, but that is the more traditional style from many, many years ago. Thick rich and malty, but not sweet like contemporary watery versions of the style. Not too strong at 6% ABV, so you can enjoy a few at a fest session. Quite good.

This beer didn’t taste much of anything Oktoberfesty, it tastes much closer to barley wine, it even smells like it too. Hopefully I’m reviewing the correct beer and if so I hadn’t found anything worth complimenting. Do not expect much from this beer.

12 oz bottle from New Seasons - Nice dark pour, but no head to speak of. Smells a bit like a petroleum based product. Taste is a bit more mellow, but much like it smells with an added hint of cedar with a bit of sweetness. Not bad.
