jjuf1853 (1231) - Land O Lakes, Florida, USA - APR 7, 2012
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.

Chipalsa (1307) - Florida, USA - APR 12, 2012
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!

zgaier (1332) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - AUG 29, 2013
On tap at World of Beer UCF. Pours a copper orange with a white head and aroma of caramel and malt. Taste is of toasted malt, caramel, bread, hops and honey with a crisp, light sweet finish. For the style, very drinkable. Great Oktoberfest brew from CCB.

drowland (5981) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - MAR 13, 2012
3/13/12. On tap at the brewery. Clear copper pour with a small khaki head that sticks and laces in small bits. Sweet caramel aroma with touches of breadiness. Sweet, malty flavor with bits of sweet caramel, some fruitiness, and a touch of roast and marzipan in there as well. Not bad!

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.

TheAlum (5575) - Lisle, Illinois, USA - APR 29, 2012
Draft on tap at DLD 2012 (Munster, IN). Pours a rich glowing copper hue. Healthy fiery reddish glow and no real haze. A frothy offwhite head dies to a film, laces small. Aromas are crisp toffee, toast, biscuits. Mellow sweetness, touches of spice, and some dry floral and earthy hops. Touch of yeast, spice. Mellow sweetness leaves it a bit bigger than expected. Initial is lighter end of medium, offering crisp toast and biscuits, gentle sweetness, some crisp carmelization, dry florals and spice. Earthy hops offer spice, decent dryness. Middle is just a touch sticky, toffee, toast. Backend is a touch sticky and toasty, growing dryness, toast, and dry Europe hops, touches of spice. Quite drinkable if getting a touch girthy at times. Solid Marzen.

jbruner (2177) - Athens, Georgia, USA - SEP 20, 2012
Pours a hazy golden brown on tap with good off-white head and decent lacing. Aroma of fresh, grainy malts and slight sweet, german malts. Taste of bready, grainy malts. Good stuff, one of the best oktoberfest beers I have ever had.
