I had it on tap. It pours a nice dark amber color with some white head and lacing. The aroma was malty sweet caramel. The taste was at first caramel, malt, and spice. As it warmed, the alcohol really took over. I’ve been drinking this for years. This year’s batch isn’t as good as ones of the past.

Draft. Pours amber with an off white head. Sweet malty aroma with toast and light earthy notes. The flavor is well balanced, with sweet malts, toast, bread, and light floral and earthy hops. Pretty good.

This is a good beer... much different then other Oktoberfest that you will find on store shelves though. This one has more of a hop flavor, much more alcohol, but by tasting it it doesn’t seem to be 6.5%. It is easy to drink and does have a caramel flavor with some spices that I just couldn’t figure out. Very Good.

This is a nice "by the numbers" Marzen with a bit of a boosted alcohol presence. Nice copper color, with a slight tannish head and a bit of lacing. There’s a good malt flavor with a bit of vanilla in the background. August done good!

this was a good ’fest’ beer. Nice example of a marzen - very easy drinking, slightly sweet. Just plain good. I’ll drink this again

This was a decent oktoberfest beer. Nothing too special but nothing too bad. Try this one out come the season.

sampled at JJ Bittings. Amber in color, aroma is malty with toasted malts, some caramel, and light floral hops. Taste is skewed to the malt side with alot of caramel, and light roasted malts. Light hop bitterness. OK.

Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 28, 2007
Clear bright orange coloured lager covered by a very large, lasting off-white foam. Fresh and really cerealic nose has the typical Vienna toastiness. It feels quite strong despite the relative thinness. Bready grain alcohol notes peak through. Feeling kinda spot on with the spirit of the modern fest in a way. Impossible to pick out fruitiness, but grapey if anything. Straight-on toastiness.

pjlisowsky (1) - USA - OCT 5, 2007 does not count
Huge toasty malt nose and flavor. Quite sweet, almost bockish. Deep copper color with tiny off-white head. Smooth full mouthfeel. Sweetness rises in finish

on tap-pours a creamy light tan head with copper color. Aroma is faint sweet medium malt. Taste is sweet medium malt-caramel, (vanilla?), creamy, secondary hops bite. OK/good carbonation.
