Saeglopur (449) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - OCT 1, 2014
Draught at Oktoberfest, Munich. Dark golden, clear body, with a big, creamy, white head. Aroma and taste of grains, grass, honey, bread, some herbs. Mouthfeel is light, slick, with a lively carbonation and it finishes medium bitter, with grass, herbs and honey. OK. Slightly above average Märzen beer, nothing special, quite fresh and crisp.

In glas van 1 liter op het oktoberfest. Geel van kleur met een matige schuimkop. Drinkt erg makkelijk weg met een licht hoppige nasmaak.

Aurelius (4379) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 24, 2014
Until they change the commercial description, this beer *is* sold in the USA. Just bought it down at the local provisioner. Nice latching bottle, good label. Bright blonde beer with a fluffy, white oatmeal head. Sweet cereal aroma. Lifeless, stale oaty-cereal flavor - lightly sweet and next-to-no bittering. Oaty aftertaste with a husky-bitter thing as well. Medium body. Loses carbonation. Meh. Market Square Liquors.

tennisjoel (1182) - Rochester, Minnesota, USA - SEP 13, 2014
Pour is golden amber color with an average dissipating white head. Typical octoberfest smell of bread, hay, cereal, and caramel malts. Flavor matches the aroma. Simple but well executed beer. Clean finish. Decent.

Pours out a very light yellow, much lighter than what I’m used to for Oktoberfest beers. Aroma isn’t much to write home about, a bit of light muted hay and honey notes. A surprising amount of bitterness upfront on this one, not nearly the malty backbone I was expecting, towards the end some slight doughy notes. A fairly clean finish. Not bad but not the best of a style I have grown to appreciate very much.

badhack (349) - San Francisco, California, USA - OCT 19, 2013
Quite a refreshing, drinkable marzen. Light, some bitter and spice in the finish and a fairly light malt flavor.

samzim (250) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 4, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 18, 2013 Slightly spicy scent. Clear golden colour. Very crisp and drinkable and a mild sweetness, but without much discernable flavour. Lively carbonation and medium to light body. Not sure I?d buy again

Ferris (5007) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 3, 2013
Draft - Grains, honey and lemon. Fizzy yellow with a foamy white head. Very light with lots of grain and a hint of lemon. Easy drinking.
