Thought I was getting a German import but after tasting it, checked the bottle and see it was brewed in USA. Not the same. Pass on this. Just pass.

hotstuff (4864) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - NOV 13, 2013
Rated on 8-25-2009 (Best Before 06.2010 Bottle) This beer pours a medium sized fizzy ivory head that mostly diminished, transparent amber body, fizzy carbonation, and a fair amount of lacing. The Aroma is light caramel malt and a hint of hops. The Taste mimics the Aroma. The Palate is fairly smooth and this beer is medium bodied. Overall, this beer lacks character, no WOW factor and there are better of this style to be had. I do not recommend this beer.

greenhorn1 (850) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - NOV 1, 2013
Bottle. Pours Amber with a thin small tan head. Strong aroma of malts. Unfortunately, the flavor doesn't match the aroma. Very thin and watery. Hints of caramel and toffee. Good effort but lacks in flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tnkw01 (1717) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 26, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 27, 2013 Bottle. Amber color. Small head. No lace. Slight skunk, caramel, grain aroma. Taste is rather bland and watery for a Oktoberfest.

MrJAO773 (10) - New York, USA - OCT 21, 2013
The pour is beautiful, the aroma is quite rich and the taste is complex with a malty front with a slight fruit note in the finish. The only downside is that the bubbles are a bit harsh and take away from the flavor up front.

Livendadream (193) - New Mexico, USA - OCT 13, 2013
Btl pours clear reddish amber color thick creamy off white head that last awhile leaving lots of lacing on glass. Aromas of toffee, roasted malts and sweet bread. Taste is semi sweet malt with a slight twang. A slight toffee flavor and a very faint hop taste. Light body, smooth texture, good carbonation. Well this beer has great aroma and virtually no flavor. It is drinkable but pretty mediocre.

Coppery brown, thin head. Blink and it's gone. No lacing. Sweet caramelly aroma. Nondescript marzen. An ostensibly German brewer should do better than this. Ok, not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Good beer for light drinking, but nothing to write home about. Easy to drink very light flavor.
