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.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

Draft…Clear amber lager with a small, creamy, white head. The bouquet presents a marriage of wildflower and clover honeys, peppery Euro-hops and a suggestion of caramel. Medium-bodied with a buttery mouthfeel and modest carbonation. Well-balanced for the style. Honey and caramel flavor with relatively low sweetness. Finishes hearty, malty and satisfying… yet somehow, refreshing as well.

Average for what I expect from them, but then again I expect home runs all the time. Basically this is a perfect copy of a normal Oktoberfest... So enjoy for what it is.

Color is a hazy cloudy brown with a slight reddish tint. Flavor is mostly driven by the malts here, but that’s too be expected for this style. Slightly sweet with a little bit of bitterness on the back end.

At the brewpub. Pours orange with a small creamy white head. Smell is sweet honey, lagery, standard Marzen smell with some extra sweetness. La or is sweet and light, with some hints of spice and a slightly dirty Marzen finish. Low carbonation and a lingering honey wheaty taste on the palate. Right on style and at the top of the style, just not my favorite style. Had to try though.

I loved the aroma with sweet notes. Light brown color. Thin head. Flavor disappointed me almost tasted like cigarette to me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
