Draugt at Bukowskis in Boston. This is a great Marzen with lots of malty sweetness.

Draft. This is a surprisingly sweet and refreshing oktoberfest. This beer provides a nice off-white head that laces throughout the entire beer. Light to moderately bodied, this beer has extra character from a grittiness that feels as if there’s a slight unfiltered aspect to this beer. With the flavor being mostly malt based, there is a nice sweet texture to the taste, with notes akin to Fruity Pebbles. While there is a high level of sweetness, it’s not too sugary. Solid beer.

Tap. Slightly sweet flavor with apparent alcohol notes. Ok overall but not my favorite Oktoberfest beer.

From the 22 fl. oz. bottle. It pours an extremely heady copper orange. The aroma is casts an array of scents including caramel malts, toffee, biscuit, yeast, and just plain old sugary sweetness. The body is medium and creamy. The taste begins sweet like the aroma but then there is this unexpected earthy bitterness that explodes a moment later and lingers to the finish. Easy to drink.

Drake (8442) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - SEP 18, 2012
Bomber from Whole Foods Market Darien. Pours a hazy amber color with a thin tan head that fades quickly. Aroma of toasted grainy malts, caramel and a faint nutty note. The taste is nutty, grainy, caramel, toasted notes, earthy hops. Medium bodied. Decent.

TURDFERGUSON (3948) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 12, 2012
Probably the marzen I have had the most of to this day. And one of first ones ever. Fairly malty throughout as expected, some spices intermixed throughout; cinnamon, nutmeg in particular. Some light pumpkin flavor and a mildly sweet finish. Lightly cloying.

cakanator (452) - South Hadley, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 24, 2012
22oz bottle. The oktoberfest has had a few issues in the past 2 years as I have heard during the lagering. Pours a very decent orange/dark amber hue, minimal head, but decent carbonation. Aromas are quite malty, caramel notes fairly light. Palate follows through with a high malt and caramel profile through the finish. Smooth and tastier than past few years.

Decent Oktoberfest. Poured a copper color with offwhite head. Aroma was caramel, leaves, and fruity sweetness. Taste is not fresh clean and malty like I expect out of a good marzen, but its more sweet and rich like i would expect out of an 8% dopplebock. Its not bad but its not real good either.

When I think Marzen I think crisp. This is malty and a rich. Not a bad beer just a medicore Oktoberfest.

brokensail (10804) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 7, 2011
A: The beer pours amber in color with a couple fingers of khaki colored head. S: Aromas of toffee and bread with a subtle toasted malt character. There is a fair bit of yeast as well as some fruity esters such as apples. A touch of caramel in there, too. T: A bit of a popcorn type flavor, maybe caramel corn when combined with the caramel sweetness. Toffee and toasted bread malts are also present. Some yeast and fruity, sweet esters. M: Medium bodied and medium carbonation. O: A bit one note, but not a bad Oktoberfest.
