The American name for the beer traditionally served at Oktoberfest celebrations in Bavaria. Amber in color, this lager is smooth, malty, and well balanced by German hops.

noncaloric (684) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 27, 2008
Aroma is light, malty. Pours a clear brown, medium head. Flavor has a broad, tasty malt profile: nuts, tea, toffee. Turns dry, slightly tart and puckering, on the finish.

phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 26, 2008
Sampled from bottle: Pours a beautifully dark yet clear illuminating copper colour with a finger sized white head. Aroma is slightly nutty, slightly malty with soft caramel undertones. Taste is creamy on the palate with hints of milk chocolate, mint and pepper.

holdenn (2110) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 24, 2008
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear amber with a white head. Not much in the nose, touch of candied malt and faded hops. Lemons, toffee malts with a touch of those earthy hops coming out in the finish. The earthiness is strange with the flavors and the body is overly watery. Ok, but nothing I’ll ever choose to drink again.

Faint caramel malt on the grainy nose. Astringent body with faint caramel malt. Thanks to Skyview for sharing.

12 oz bottle. Red amber with solid medium beige head. Slight lager grain with sweet malt and caramel. Flavor is grain, banana, sweet, slight dark malt. Well carbonated medium to full body that fades to a nice creaminess. Solid.

JK (5808) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - NOV 4, 2007
Perhaps not as fresh as it could have been, but it is only November. Great malt aroma and malt flavor. Some caramel. Good, smooth palate. Not the most flavorful oktoberfest I have had, but quite good anyway.

Skyview (5696) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - OCT 28, 2007
Picked up a six-pack at Trig’s in Wausau, Wisconsin. From a 12-oz bottle, pours a clear coppery amber brew with a fast dissolving off-whtie head that disipates clean. Aroma of sweet caramel malt, some flowery hops with some dry toffee. Taste is medium bodied, lightly carbonated with a caramel malt flavor with some dry spice, toffee and some tart pear. Finish is slightly tart at first and then a sweet biscuit and caramel malt flavor returns. No bitterness in this bottled Märzen.
