22 oz. bottle shared by b3shine. Pours a clear amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma is malty, toasted bread, caramel mild fruity notes with a splash of yeast. The flavor had toasted malts, caramel with some fruity notes. This is not a style I typically enjoy, but I guess this is ok.

Pours an amber brown with a off white head. Aroma is malty, caramel, with a woody, nutty and light maple syrup. Flavor is malty caramel, maple syrup sweetness, notes of nutty woody flavor. Thick rich and sticky. A good Oktoberfest.

Tasted on 9/12/11 from a bottle. Pours clear, dark orange-amber with an average white head that slowly recedes to spotty lace. The nose is light bread malt with some nutty aromas and just a hint of lightly bitter hops. The flavor is the same light bread malt, with the nutty and bitter hops notes coming through more strongly than the nose would have suggested. The body is light with average carbonation, and a lightly sticky, and nutty bitter hops finish.

My Bottom Line:
Delicately toasted cereals meet herbal hops in this super clean, Americanized version of an Oktoberfest lager.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam stays atop the shiny pale amber.
-The hop profile is bolder than the typical Festbier’s, which is to be expected in these parts.
-Mild caramel sweetness is perceived as well.
-Drinkability is high.

On tap at the brewpub.

Clear brown pour with good head on tap at a pickup curling game. About the most Oktoberfest aromas I could imagine, roasted nuts and all. Flavor is roasted for sure with an aftertaste if heavy cocoa and caramel. Yuck. Not my thing. Oktoberfest in the wrong direction.

Bottle. Perfect amber color. Aroma is praline and hints of can’t corn. Taste is slightly sweet "Payday" like with toast and a slight hoppy finish.

firemarshal (190) - North Carolina, USA - DEC 25, 2013
Sample at 201 Central. Dark amber in color. Aroma of honey, caramel, some coffee. Nice roasted malt up front with light bitter hops to finish. Very drinkable beer. Overall, it tastes like a less hoppy, sweeter version of their Hoppyum IPA.

Beerenberger (1577) - Fischer, Texas, USA - OCT 29, 2013
Malt forward aroma. Toffee and hints of nuts. A dark amber pour with a quickly disappearing head and no lacing. The taste is mildly sweet up front with welcomed hop bitterness dominating the finish. Caramel and toffee with suggestions of nuts. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, this is a very drinkable Oktoberfest/Marzen. Would drink again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From tap at brewery. Wow, better then expected. Pours a deep amber color with thin head. Notes of nuts, malt and toffee. Taste follows and is well balanced. Very drinkable.
