BBD 1/12/15. Clear amber pour with a very nice dark ruby cast. Slightly above normal head volume, average retention and superior lacing. Light nose of biscuit with caramel notes over a light herbal/floral hop aroma. Medium bodied with a nice slick texture. Above normal carbonation with a good bit of effervescence in the middle and on the finish. The flavor profile is reasonably intense, somewhat complex and well balanced. It begins with toasty biscuit malt then flows into a mild caramel sweetness. The middle is slightly bitter with a nutty/spicy note. The finish is a bit crisp and leaves you with a lingering toasted grainy note. A good Oktoberfest.

Bottle from Lancaster Wines. Pours ruby with a cream head. The taste is fruity malt with a slight metallic edge. A little caramel too. OK.

Sjohnh (220) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2014
Clean, copper coloured with small white head. Light body, medium carbonation. Aroma of sweet malt and cereal. Light malt flavour, sweet with a hint of dried fruit.

kramer (5063) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 13, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear copper body with a small fizzy off-white head. The aroma is pretty nice, it smells very clean and well lagered. Nice sweet munich and caramel maltiness, minimal hoppiness, and a touch of marshmallow. The flavor is fairly clean as well, not the deepest of malt profiles, but the sweetness is there without being overly clingy. I could still go for just a bit more hops in here, but I think its fairly decent. Light to medium bodied with a soft carbonation level. Decent Oktoberfest, about in the middle of the pack for domestic efforts.

Damico (2649) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 30, 2014
Pours deep bright amber with a grayish white head. The aroma is fresh spritzy autumn not overly sweet amber malts, smooth. The flavor is smooth, balanced sweetness flavor of amber toasted malts, really smooth and delicious on the palate.

nimbleprop (5088) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 22, 2014
16oz stein at Pizza Paradiso Georgetown pours a mostly clear, copper amber with some creamy, white head. Nose is standard, malty, some yeasty dough, cracker, a little fall fruit, mild golden raisin. Flavor is the same, malty sweet, biscuit, a little bread, some orange too, a little dried apple. Crisp finish. Solid representation.

Malty aromas and a sweet malty flavour, not my kind of beer at all. Tastes too macro for me.

Aroma: grain and cereal malts. Appearance: clear, hazy brown, massive, beige, creamy head. Taste: light sweet. Palate: bread and caramel malts. Overall: OK, Maerzen, but nothing to write home about. Pint at Big Brew, Morristown.
