COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Why fly to Munich for a genuine Oktoberfest Lager when this one’s inches from your lips? A smooth, malty lager brewed in the true Bavarian Style, using Two-row Pale, Vienna, Caramel and imported roasted Munich malts, moderately hopped with imported Czech Saaz and Yakima Sterling hops. Flavors reminiscent of honey, nougat and roasted nuts. Complex and beautifully balanced Prost!

Picked up at the COOP tonight... Pours a very clear amber... Nice head but little lacing.. no real complaints. Nose is all about the malts... I would guess a hint of dark Munich... nice toasty presence.. very clean. Malty through and through without ever being "sweet".... minor spicy hoppiness, but it is in the background as expected. Well done... I really like this one... The LTD series has been tickling my lager itch for a while and this is fresh and pretty wonderful.

Pours deep amber with a sticky off white head. Nose is intense rich malts, bready, pungent malt richness, medium caramel notes, and a moderate amount of dark fruit aromas. Flavor is rich malts, caramels, dark fruits, raisins, figs, toasty malts. Medium body and medium sweetness. Pretty damn fine.

5000 (6031) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 1, 2014
Bottle:   Amber, on the darker side, large foamy sandy head, nice lacing.   Sweet bready malts with some biscuit character.   Smells clean.   Smooth malty start, caramel malts, bready, some biscuit.   Thankfully not really mealy.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finishes like it starts, bready, caramel malts, some biscuit, clean, and without much mealiness or cereal notes.   Pretty good example of a Marzen.   Had it been a touch sweeter, a touch hoppier, it would be even better!

brenn79 (1430) - Idaho, USA - DEC 6, 2013
12 oz bottle- Pours slightly hazy autumn amber with a nice two finger off white head that wants to stick around and a geyser of bubbles. Aroma is typical Octoberfest caramel malts, there is a spiciness in there that is interesting, subtle hops. The taste is caramel malts, dry mild bittering, getting honey like it says in the description. It is what it is, have definitely had worse.

12 oz. bottle - Pours a clear copper color with a one and a half finger thick off white head. very light lacing. Aroma is toasted malt and light herbal hops. Flavor is toasted caramel malt, esters, and light herbal hops. The caramel malt lingers a bit in the finish. Medium body. A nice beer.

poisoneddwarf (1625) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - OCT 4, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 5, 2013 12 oz bottle from a six pack bought at Super 1 in Rathdrum, ID. Aroma is lightly roasty, light caramel, a bit biscuity. Pours clear copper with a medium collapsing beige head. Taste is malty sweet, grainy, toasty; finishes with a light tartness. Mouthfeel is creamy, body medium. Not bad for style, but I’ve never really cared for this style too much.

Bottle. This is a nice simple Marzen that captures the style well and goes down smooth.

emacgee (3875) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - SEP 26, 2013
Pours a soft and clean orange-ish amber with one or two fingers of fizzy sandy tan head. Nose has a light caramel sweetness on the edges, works well with the herbal hop note and biscuity/bready grain. Flavor is nice, earthy and lightly toasted grain. A touch of malt sweetness makes its way through. Very soft and mellow/mild with full malt flavors and a clean finish. Very very low bitterness and soft finish. Nice
