fidemaster (281) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - OCT 4, 2009
Clear amber with a thin white head. Aroma of caramel, toast, honey, and herbs with a hint of spice. Light medium watery body with a moderate amount of carbonation. Nice malty flavor of caramel, toast, apple, and nuts with hints of herbs and spice. Very smooth and refreshing. Another solid offering from Capital, but pretty standard. Good.

Dogbrick (7973) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 28, 2014
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.

Foxbush (1264) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 16, 2013
Draft at The bar in Appleton, WI The beer poured a clear amber with no head. The aroma and taste was of toasted malts and caramel. This was a nice Octoberfest while watching NCAA football. The medium body beer had average carbonation. Smooth finish with a hint of hops.

jhliesen (719) - West Melbourne, Florida, USA - SEP 15, 2013
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.

kkleu357 (277) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 15, 2013
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.

Beastmolde (4) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 10, 2013 does not count
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.

beerbaaron (1210) - Arizona, USA - SEP 8, 2013
Pours a nice looking fiery amber. Fair creamy white head, lasting. Aroma is sweet, malty, toasty, caramel. Light body but full flavored. Sweet and toasty. Enough earthy hops and bitterness to balance. Dry finish.
