On tap at Jerry’s Chicago. Pours cloudy auburn. Great looking beer. Good crisp slightly sweet caramelized flavor with a crisp and only slightly bitter finish. Another well crafted brew from great lakes.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Would never buy this again. To watery. No grainy malt flavor at all and with a horrible after taste. This is a horrible example of a marzen. Do not waste your time

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma-Sweet caramel, bread, toasted biscuits
Taste- sweet malt, caramel, slight citrus hops, butter, the tiniest hint of bitterness
Palate - thin mouthfeel, malty brief finish, fizzy carbonation.
Good for the style but a little too sweet. Still enjoyed it, but there are better oktoberfest out there.

Near perfect assimilation of the German festbier. Nice malt profile, with a crisp hop back end. Malts are smooth and flavorful, malt finish, malt lingers. Now I miss Being in Germany in September....

Drank from a twelve ounce bottle. I’ve been a big fan of Great Lakes Brewing, but was disappointed by this beer. Sweet aromas, decent amber taste upon the initial taste after that a foul aftertaste.

One of my favorite beers. Good classic oktoberfest lager. Sort of reminds me of conway’s Irish ale but not as sweet

Tasted from bottle. Pours a orange color with white head. Aroma is mostly malt. Grains and some caramel. Taste is smooth, drinkable and sessionable. Normally I'm not a huge Oktoberfest style fan but this is good. Sweet tasting with almost no detectable bitterness. Flavors of caramel and spices. Excellent for style.

Amber pour with little head. Majority of the aroma is pilsner malt and the same with the taste.

Deep, clear amber pour. Touch of pine hop, slight malt toffee at the end. A lot of pilsner malt. Crackery. Some malty toffee, and a tangy hop finish.
