Nice amber pour with a medium sized white head. Nice malt aroma with a bit of the hop presence at the end. Flavor is slightly malty with a nice hop finish. Not as flavorful as some Octoberfests out there but it can get the job done.

beernbourbon (1309) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - OCT 11, 2014
Bottle. Pour is Clear light copper with a small soapy white head. Aroma is sugary toasted malt with light hay and yeast. Flavor is sweet with lightly toasted malt and a faintly hoppy finish. Lightly floral. The yeasty finish that usually turns me off to this style is absent, but still really sweet for the abv. I like this more than most marzen but still not at the top of my list. It grew on me slowly.

Probably my favorite marzen year in and year out. Well rounded, malty and amber. Such a beautiful oktoberfest.

Beachmaster (145) - Oklahoma, USA - SEP 27, 2014
12 oz. bottle into a pint glass. Pours a clear amber/orange, with a moderate white head which quickly fades. No lacing. Not much on the nose, faint aroma of malt. Taste is OK, typical for the style. An average Oktoberfest.

Bif (1496) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 26, 2014
On tap. Served a dark amber color with a decent head and fair lacing. Aroma of malt, bit of fruit and hops in the background. Taste of malt, some caramel and fruit sweetness. Mild bitterness and a clean finish. Moderate body, smooth with a light malty feel. Decent beer for the style.

Ratman197 (9948) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - SEP 15, 2014
On tap at Hops and Pie poured a clear orange amber with a small lasting amber head. Aromas of caramel, toasted malt and a hint of fruitiness. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a smooth dry finish. Flavors of caramel, toasted malt and a hint of fruitiness with a smooth dry lingering caramel finish.

355ml bottle. Lighter amber for an oktoberest, foamy white head. Aroma is salty pretzel and sharp noble hops, bit of biscuit. Flavor is spicy and malty, some nuttiness, heavily entrenched int he american style of maerzens.

Drjohnrock (431) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 18, 2014
Twelve ounce bottle from mix six pack purchased at Whitey’s Wine and Liquor, Lawrenceburg, Indiana, tasted on September 28, 2013. Medium orange color, medium toasted malt nose, mostly bitter taste with some astringency and chemical notes, not enough sweet toasted malt flavor. I expect better from Boulevard.

hotstuff (4139) - Indiana, USA - APR 14, 2014
Rated on 11-13-2011. When poured, this beer has a small ivory head that mostly diminishes, transparent body, fast rising carbonation, and virtually no lacing. The aroma is caramel malt, hops and fruity. The taste is lightly bitter, caramel malt, lightly hoppy, and lightly fruity. The mouthfeel is lively but yet soft and this beer is medium bodied. This beer is just so-so tasting. It is not a bad beer per se. It just lacks character and wow factor.
