A great take on a classic style of beer. The aroma was fresh of dried orange fruit and a gentle, floral hop scent. Flavors were mild at first, but as it warmed up there was light toffee and again, dried citrus. With a hint of hops in the finish, this beer was incredibly drinkable - cheers!

Draft at Cigar City. Pours a slightly hazy amber with a very thin off white head. Minimal lacing. Aroma has lots of toffee malt notes. Flavor has a nice mix of hop bitterness aka malt sweetness with spice notes in the finish. Very easy drinking.

Can - Pours a clear copper with fairly large, but quickly dissipating head. Aromas of caramel and bread. Nice mouth feel, biscuity. All good but the finish.

Can from Justin D, killing it as always! Pours a medium orange little to no head, malty rustic character, some spicy character to the malt. Full and complex, surprisingly bitter, hints of grass and spice in finish.

on tap at the brewery taproom. I enjoyed being able to have a Marzen in the summer... it’s been a long time since last year’s Oktoberfest! Mostly sweet but with a roasty note that you would usually find in porters and I’ve never experienced in an Oktoberfest. Nice touch.

On tap at DLD 12. That is the most memorable thing about it. It was an average Oktoberfest/Marzen, Glad I got to try something from Cigar City finally.

Pours amber with a thick white head. Aroma is malts and cane syrup. Taste is malts with a minute hop bite and a easy malt finish. A little unusual to have a hoppy flavor in a Marzen, but not bad.

Cigar City Oktoberfest is an average speciman of the style. Pour is an expected orange with a thin head. Aroma is light honey. Taste has some honey notes with a little too much malt character on the backend. Sorry to say CCB Oktoberfest is not. standout.
