On Tap at Harris Grill. (Bells Tap Takeover 9/9/11). Poured hazy amber with bubbly white head. Aroma not over done...of caramel. Taste is of barley and slightly sweet caramel in the finish. Beer was crisp and smooth. Carbonation was good.

basaywhat (182) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - OCT 23, 2016
12 oz bottle. Deep golden color with a small white head. Aroma is German malt with touches of honey. Flavor is the same with a medium thick body and a quick slightly bitter finish. Not a bad example of the style.

George999 (410) - Colorado, USA - OCT 16, 2016
From bottle, the pour is orange with a white head that has a slight orange hue. The aroma is malts lightly roasted. The taste is medium roasted malts and cereal. The finish is malts. The mouthfeel is highly carbonated and thin. Overall not a bad Octoberfest beer, if it is hot outside this would be a good one to drink at the fest.

TH28 (386) - - OCT 15, 2016
12oz bottle. 8/18/16 bottle date. Appearance: Dark copper, with a slight haze and a thick off white head with great lacing. Aroma: Bready malt with a slight touch of spicy hoppiness. Taste: Bready, lightly toasted malt with a moderate bitterness, strong for the style, that lends some herbal and spicy notes. Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Finish: A touch of sulphur, with bitter toast that lingers. Overall: A decent, but not great marzen. Seems to be a little light on the bready, Munich malt character of the style, and the lighter maltiness lends to a stronger perceived bitterness. Very clean, crisp and easy drinking, but pretty far removed from the true German Marzens

MaltOne (322) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 15, 2016
Pours Pale copper amber; brief white, frizzy head. Aroma caramel malt. Taste is caramel malt, on the sweet side, with a faint bitter hop note. Palate is a sweet coating to the tongue. Overall, nice Oktoberfest, generally well balanced. Sweetness seems to be a characteristic of most American Oktoberfests, and while not excessive here, it is a bit sweet for my taste.

zoucrew102 (1421) - - OCT 9, 2016
Bottle. Caramel malt aroma with notes of bready malt, toast and grassy hops. Pours clear light amber colored with thin but retentive white head that also has good lacing. Starts with lots of sweet caramel malt flavor with light bready malt notes. Finishes smooth and a bit dry with toast and light grassy hop flavors. Nice Octoberfest!

radio_nowhere (1407) - Maryland, USA - OCT 5, 2016
Bottle into mug, clear goldeny-amber color with light tan head. Aroma notes of caramel malt sweetness, some roast and light earthy hops. Taste adds toast, grain, some honey with balanced hop bitterness. Light-medium body, moderate-heavy carbonation, crisp, soft with clean caramel-faint bitter finish. Seems more hop forward than average, good.

Aroma: Carmel malt, done of that Belgian mustiness. Golden brown with thin white head. Well balanced flavor. Medium mouth feel. Pretty enjoyable.
