A really nice marzen. Orange-copper pour. Honey and bread aromas. Sweet and light with more honey and yeast in taste and mild carbonation. Sure, doesn’t set the world on fire, but I think two, three or four of them would go great with a big German dinner of schnitzels and sausages. Getting hungry now. Solid Oktoberfest from CCB.

Growler brought up from the brewery by wilkes and lynn (thanks!). Yeasty sweet caramel and banana aroma. Taste is grass, sweet caramel malts, vanilla and grain. Finishes grainy. Good balance. Not my favorite style, but drinkable.

what i really like about this one, unlike most oktoberfests, is that it has a nice balance of hoppiness to even out the malty graininess and darker sugars. its refreshing, bright, clean without being too cloying like other Octs. very nice indeed.

Tap at Dark Lord Day 2012. Earthy caramel malt and apple aroma. Deep amber with a small off-white head. Caramel malt, light fruit, earthy vegetal flavor with a light hop finish. Light body. Very malt forward. One of the better marzens I’ve tried.

Sweet, but with an stale wheat component - strangely this worked. Looked a little more pale than other oktoberfests. The taste was a bit stale like the aroma, and this time it didn’t work as good with a secondary cigarette taste. The palate was nice and frothy and refreshing. Taste was the only detractor.

I don't think I'm a huge Oktoberfest guy. This was fairly good and drinkable. Malty of course, but not overly so. Tastes like what I think an Oktoberfest tastes like in my mind. Good example of style but nothing that has CCBs stamp on it. Could be from anyone.

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.

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.
