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

slight nuttiness on the nose,,,cant pick up much else. Amber pour witha white head that disappears almost immediately. Refreshing, notes of caramel and toasted nuts. smooth mouth feel. mediocre palate.

This is my favorite American Oktoberfest beer. It has a rich caramel flavor and is very affordable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

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.

Another fine example of the Marzen style Oktoberfest beers. Quite similar to Summit’s version. Has that wonderful sweet malt flavor that you just want to leave on your tongue. Solid all around--nothing offensive. Very pleased to have found this one by accident. Will look for it again next fall!

12 oz Bottle from Armanetti’s, Mundelein, IL. Clear amber having small creamy white head with excellent lacing. Light sweet malty aroma with hint of spice, molasses, fruity esters and toffee. Soft carbonation. Medium-to-full bodied with starts with hint of sweet malt, middles on dry side, and finishes with dry bitterness. Some echoes of Capitol’s Autumnal Fest and Capitol’s Wisconsin Ale but milder, drier and more bitter. An excellent Oktoberfest beer.

Nice caramelly, malty aroma. Big carbonation, beer gushed a bit from the bottle. Nice deep amber color. Big, malty flavor. Some hop spicyness towards the end, but overall a big flavorful Octoberfest beer. A taste delight.

NIce roasted aroma. Nice med. bodied beer with almost a nutty malt flavor. This is not only my favorite fest but one of my best to drink.

Great example of a Märzen. Poured from a can at Badgerville in Madison, WI. Bready, with a little residual malt sweetness.

Amber liquid with average sticky, frothy foam. Subtle notes of cinnamon, alcohol, toasted malt, and apple. Mild, yet very enticing. Soft mouthfeel with perfect level of carbonation. Flavors are of heavily toasted malt, pecan, and spicy hop finish. This remains classy and subtle, which is why I love Octoberfests so much; it is very difficult to make a subtle beer with refined flavor.
