COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A traditional marzen style beer with a gorgeous firey dark orange color. Oktoberfest emphasizes a rich malt character. A great way to fortify oneself as the nights start to get cooler. Available August through October

VENOM (941) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 4, 2002
Slight chill hazed amber. Thin off white edge head. Light carbonation. Aroma of toasted malts and toffee. Solid body, candy coated apple sweetness. Light crispness and bitter burnt caramel aftertaste. Moderately hoppy. Very light oxidized flavor. Finishes malty sweet and bitterly balanced. Nice, considering how past October it is right now.

Not bad for an American marzen. Not great either a little weak.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - DEC 10, 2001
This conforms to the requisite ’style’ reasonably well, but cannot be really recommended; weak and thin on the tongue, sweetish and almost insipid on the nose, with no complexity and little hop presence. A disappointment from this good brewer; try Riverwest Stein instead.

Nice traditional interpretation of the Oktoberfest style. Similar to Capital’s Autumnal Fire, but slightly lighter.
