This is quite an authentic rendition, with a dark, rich body of caramel malt that sports a dark orange hue, offering bread dough and understated hops beneath, sessionable, thinning out a bit on the finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at Great Taste of the Midwest on 08/09/2014: Clear bright orange color with a medium thin off-white head that recedes quickly to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing. Aroma of malt, caramel and slight hops. Light-bodied with a strong malty character and notes of hops and fruit in the background. The finish is sweet with a roasted malt aftertaste. Decent overall.

My favorite marzen by far. Great toasted sweet malt and a slight bitterness to balance. Clear, clean, crisp appearance and a refreshing clean palate. Can’t ask for much more for the style.

Bottle--high quality Oktoberfest. Solid amber color with a tiny head. Aroma of malts and taste of sweet caramel and a malt base. Toss in some toasty notes and we’re talking quality. Total wine.

Nice appearance. Golden brown and orange. Decent amount of flavor for an Octoberfest. I’m not a big fan of Octoberfests, but this one is decent.

Tried this on tap. The aroma was caramel, bread, and a little roasty. The color was a fiery orange, clear and the head was a creamy white. The taste was a sweet medium with bitter at the end of the palette. A very drinkable beer. Palate had a medium body texture was sticky but clean during the beginning with a bitter finish.
