(12oz bottle, bottled 10/11/06, thanks wilkie) Small beige head atop clear amber body. Aroma is medium sweet, caramel, peach, nutty, some toffee. Taste is moderately sweet, caramel, peach, light lager yeast, finishes with some earthiness and a hint of alcohol. Watery light-medium body, rather drinkable

Clear amber/copper pour. Flavor is sweet, lightly metallic, slight hop presence, a tad medicinal.

emacgee (4136) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - SEP 26, 2008
Pours a copper orange with a one finger frothy pale yellow. The aroma is light and malty, has a mild sweetness, crisp dry bitterness, lagered, earthy.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 3, 2007
On draft. Deep amber, modest head, and faintly malty aroma. Lightly hopped (floral) and quite drinkable, this one is fine but leaves little impression.

maxwelldeux (3790) - Everett, Washington, USA - OCT 17, 2012
Draught. Poured a darker amber color with a slight head. Was one of the best Oktoberfests I’ve had - probably my favorite of the style. Nice and malty with a little bit of bitterness to it. Very biting feel to it which was really appealing.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - OCT 22, 2005
Draught. Clear amber color with thin off white head. Not much nose, a bit of roasy malt. Caramel, spicy flavor without much hop flavor or bitterness. Not bad.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 29, 2010
Draft at Flying Saucer Raleigh. Pours a deep amber/copper wit white head. Nose is toast and biscuits, mild herbal noble hop aromas. On taste, more of the bready toast notes. Minimal hopping. Decent Oktoberfest.

GTAEgeek (1273) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 1, 2014
12 oz. bottle. Pours clear, dark copper, with a small, bubbly, tan head. Big, malty aromas of caramel, peat, and honey. Some hopping - I get some light saaz earthiness and a little pine. Sweet flavor, with some nice, mellow spice and light bitterness. Medium body, smooth, and a little acidic. Overall, this is a reasonably nice amber lager. It doesn’t really hit the high points of a good marzen in my opinion, but it’s a pretty good beer.

wilkie (1208) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - SEP 28, 2002
Good flavor, but nothing special in general. Nice blend of roasted malt and caramel flavor, but hops are almost undetectable. It is better than Sam Adam’s version of Oktoberfest, but certainly not the best I have had.
